Not sure I like the roll-n-move type "paths" on the board.

I'm not sure that I really had much of a feeling about the paths, but I really like the character cards. I've always wondered how you could simplify down the ability scores without losing the core section of the game. But this idea has captured it really well. Plus the game design is nice reflective of the original games

I always wondered how a Fallout board game would work. I would have started off with World of WarCraft: The Adventure Game. There are four different levels to level up your character, and similar to this Fallout game, the enemies have items on the other side of the card.

It would also include crafting similar to Zombicide where you would combine different cards to buy a new card. For example, combining a leaf blower with a firehose nozzle to create a rock-it launcher!

Fallout has always been about a lone mercenary so any Fallout board game wouldn't have high player interaction.

I would also love the PnP files for this game!

Hey, I just wanted to say thanks for posting this, I'm the guy who made it. I also made the Fallout Monopoly - http://imgur.com/a/fwDHK#0 that you may have seen last April, which was what inspired this new game.

For the new one, we're still kind of tweaking the rules a little each time we play to make it more exciting. Originally, the idea was for each player to start with nothing at all, kind of like you do in the Fallout games, and you have to scavenge and find whatever equipment you can to survive at first, then gradually start attacking each other and trying to form a strategy, but that didn't work out so well. Our first play-test, I think it was a good 45 minutes before any of us even found a weapon. So it was basically one guy with a Super Sledge, and the rest of us unarmed and running for our lives...I think one of us may have had a helmet, but that was about it. Needless to say he won. So we've now implemented starting weapons, which has made the beginning of the game much more interesting. Anyway, thanks again! If you want to know any more about it, let me know!
