The object of the game is to become the most successful oil company in the world. Players/teams first choose a name for their new oil company, then bid on leases around the world. Once a lease is secured, the drilling begins. Suspense builds as players search for the gushers in hopes of striking it rich.

With each turn, players need to choose when, where, and how deep to drill. Decisions are made regarding whether to play it safe and drill on land, or to pay the higher cost of offshore drilling and go for the big payoff!

The game is played on a unique 3D game board which houses three unseen levels of movable oil patches, ensuring that the game will never be played the same way twice. A world map is included with each game and a selection of optional regional maps are available separately.
