A nearly 40-year-old board game is getting a lot of new attention because of eerie similarities between the scenarios of its play and the 78-day-old BP Gulf oil disaster.
The game BP Offshore Oil Strike, which came out in the 1970s and is adorned with an old BP logo, revolves around four players exploring for oil, building platforms and constructing pipelines – all in the name of being the first to make $120 million.
"I thought it was odd that it was a game in the '70s, which has basically now come true. The interesting thing is that it was in dollars, even though it was a European game. The cleanup bill was $1 million, which we now know isn't nearly enough, but it is a weird colorful circle."
The problem is is that none of those things fortell future events. The board game was made during the oil crisis of the 70s (which you would've known had you read the article), the illuminati card game had events that either already happened or events commonly discuss among conspiracy theorists, and I really shouldn't even have to say anything about the 20$ bill. Chances are this is just someone driving up hype to cash in on a tragedy.

Holy Crap. Add this to the Illuminati Cards, The New 20 Dollar Bill, and I am sure many more out there that fortells future events in the public eye.
Stop grasping at straws and come up with an actual argument. Cards displaying past/commonly discussed events with zero details are not prophetic. If we play by your logic, "A famous person will die this year" is a prophecy. By your logic, "A country will wage war with another country" is a prophecy. By your logic "A tragedy will strike a country" is a prophecy. These are not prophecies; things like this only make the conspiracy community look like a joke.

The Illuminati cards are a typical ploy of "Hiding in plain sight" they love to shove these things in our faces. I have the entire set, and it's pretty horrifying when you find the ones that are eerily similar to what has happened.

Check out -
January 1975 - January 2010 calculated a 315.91% inflation rate.
Therefore $1Million 1975 dollars = $4,159,000.00 in 2010. So they were a little off there.
