I'm new to all this but I was curious if anyone found a way to find or recreate the actual popping capsules from the 70s?

They did exist in the recent past, Dave. They are called snappers. Very inconvenient! I think they also exist in some snake poison remedy kits today :-) also for angina treatments. Contain amyl.

Amyl nitrite ampules. You can find them today if you look hard enough! They are sold as first aid against cyanide poisoning. Each little glass ampule holds about .3 of a milliliter. Sometimes they have like a metal gauze to prevent cuts, or they advise breaking in a handkerchief.

So no need to recreate them, as they are still around. Obviously the number of people at risk of cyanide poisoning is very small indeed so you will not find them at Walmart :-)

Awesome, thanks for the tips! ;-) now I've been looking online and I think my noobishness is getting the better of me. Any chance you could post a link or two to help me find them?

If you are in the habit of going to country house weekends with mysterious strangers, then take amyl! Watch out for Colonel Mustard with his big candle stick, it might also come in handy.

They are called "ampoules" - note the spelling. You need documentation to buy them and only in bulk.

That bastard Heinrich Himmler cheated the gallows with cyanide. Shame they did not have any amyl with them then.

What strange ideas you have. A board game and a notorious historical figure.... I think you may have issues.
