Snake Oil - Rules of Play says:
In the Old West, sly snake oil salesmen had the special talent of getting even the most skeptical customer to buy the most dubious product. In Snake Oil, that’s exactly what the players get to do! One player draws a card and becomes the Customer while the other players each select two Word Cards from their hands to create a product to pitch to the Customer. Ever wondered if you had that natural gift of selling? Snake Oil is the game that offers you an answer! If you do manage to sell Love Sausages to an Astronaut, then perhaps it's time to re-think your career! In this party game, one person picks a role card at random - they could be a cave man, a runaway or the last man on earth! Then the sales pitches begin as you try to worm your way into the person’s affections. The more you sell, the more likely you'll win. Note: commission not included.
