to all sellers... the value of these jumped from 20k to half a million dollars today.. just make sure the sale has a legal vote before it is made official...
I hear the guys selling them are telling their partners they are only worth $35 and they are worth $45 but really starting a new Baja 1000 board game. Dont get me going on the Mint Jim Beam decanters someone told me mine were worth a 100 bucks so I sold them and now I hear I could have gotten 200 SON OF A BEOTCH. Sorry not making lite Pat but kinda the same thing. W A J

I found these pictures online:




I am almost positive my Mint games are older than the one shown, I seem to remember it coming out earlier than that, infact I remember it was brought out with a Honda Odyssey (un suspended with a fiberglass body with a lot of fan fair and way before Rodger mears truck was even a thought)

The only info I know is from the website saying the game was published in 1985 by Kjell Eriksson.

It also gives this description:

During the first phase of the game, the players roll and move on the outer part of the board, getting their trucks, coupons, and spare parts. After using the coupons to pay the "entrance fee", they begin doing a pre-determined amount of laps on the inner part of the board. The more laps that were chosen, the more spare parts that will be needed to complete the laps. There are also "good news" and "bad news" squares on the outer and inner board, which act as random events. The player who completes all the laps, or makes the most number of laps, wins. The rules book also contains more info on off-road racing and contains driver profiles on Parnelli Jones, Team MacPherson (Jerry McDonald, Jeff MacPherson, adn Joe MacPherson), John Baker, Walker Evans, Ivan Stewart, and Kjell Eriksson.
I found a picture and testimonial by Kjell Eriksson on this site for some sort of pain relief product:

I'm 19 Years Old and have never played the game myself. But I see it sitting on the shelf in my closet everyday. Might have to at least open it up one of these days to see whats inside

I still have mine! We used to wear old open face helmets, smoking cigars and drinking beer when we played. Game always seems to last all night so have lots of beer on hand!
 
Matt, I know of someone who had two cases of these un-opened. She is where I got my several copies 7 years ago and I would bet she still has them. It will take a couple of phone calls to track her down, but I can point you in the right direction.

Matt, I'll bring you a free Mint 400 board game to the Rick Huseman Auction next friday. I really appreciate all that you did to help further Rick's career. See you there!

P.S. My favorite was the short video of the truck that kind of showed what was under the skin.

Hello all. I am new to the forums but I love this board game. Kjell is a friend of mine and showed me all the pictures he had from Vegas and the racers playing the game at the Casino. Also of the race itself. Very old pictures but very cool to see the history of it. Was pretty cool and got me interested so i found this forum. He is from Norway not Sweden lol. Seams like the website doesn't work anymore but I did find this he is on http://blackgoldpower.com/kjell-eriksson-off-road-race

Hey guys im new to the forums but I used to play this board game all the time. As you said some beers and a couple hours with some friends.

Kjell is actually a friend of mine and he was showing me all his old school photos of the board game and the races and stuff. Pretty cool and actually got me interested and found this forum.

I tried going to that page but seams like its not there anymore but I did find him on http://blackgoldpower.com/kjell-eriksson-off-road-racer same sort of idea I think...

Happy New Year to all.
