Inspired by Hunter S. Thompson’s classic novel, which was turned into a movie starring Johnny Depp and directed by Terry Gilliam, the Fear and Loathing board game is pretty serious. Made for the drug-addled mind, or for those who are diehard fans of the story, it appears to be a complex game that stays true to its inspiration rather closely.

Created by Jonathan Baldwin, the Fear and Loathing board game not only comes in a briefcase quite like the one toted around by the main character, it is filled with drugs. As stated on Baldwin's website, it is "a scientifically-accurate, organic chemistry board game based around “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” Of course, the pieces of the game only mimic the real-life substances and aren't actually real.
