Here is a vintage "SMOKERS WILD the hilarious Anti-Smoking game". This is "A BOOKCASE GAME CLASSIC" and for two to six players ages twelve to adult. From GAMMA TWO GAMES LTD. Box 46347 VANCOUVER B.C. CANADA (c) 1978. Number 2005.
Described on the back as "SMOKERS WILD is a blend of fun and macabre humour derived from one of the world's worst habits - smoking!...The game is a king sized spoof on smoking and the Tobacco industry. All players start the game as healthy and wealthy non-smokers. But a roll of the dice could turn anyone into a four pack a day smoker of zany cigarette brands. Once 'hooked', financial and medical problems pile up. Therefore, your aim as a player is to avoid starting to smoke or quit as soon as possible...."
The winner is the player who avoids a nicotine fit and manages to survive the longest. Game does not require actual smoking.
Contents are complete: 1 Gameboard (size 16 1/4" x 16 1/4"), 24 "Have a puff" cards, 12 Cigarette brand cards, 8 Occupation cards, 1 Set of play money, 12 Tokens, 2 Dice and complete instructions.
Game board is in 4 pieces and fits together like a jigsaw puzzle. The 12 plastic tokens are 2 each of these colors: white, blue, black, red, green, yellow.
The funny Cigarette brand card names are Came Ill, Marble Row, Pukent, Slayem, Morgue, Krool, Lurk, Wince Tongue, Pale Male, Par Rotten 100's, Chestisfilled.
The Occupation card names are Taxman, Ad Agency, Undertaker, Psychiatrist, Lawyer, Tobacco Company, Doctor, Insurance Agent. There are 4 blank cards.
Contents are complete other than I did not count the large stack of play money (as the total amount was not stated).
The game contents do not appear to have been handled much at all. The approx. 12" x 9" x 2" bookcase box shows some aging and shelf wear, not excessive. Light scuffs, creases, smudges. No musty or smoke odor.
Shipping weight 2-3 lbs.
