The post-apocalyptic theme in films and boardgames is one I like. Perhaps it appeals to the natural scavenger/looter in me. I used to own Earth Reborn and got to tutorial number 7 or something before I sold it on (there was a lot going on in that game, some of the mechanisms were a little too idiosyncratic perhaps: you could infatuate one particular figure over to your side)! I recently acquired 51st State: Master Set which I'm enthused by. The theme lends itself well to exploring, razing, collecting resources etc. - with evocative card titles and art.

I see with interest that Outlive, another post-apoc. game, is on the horizon.

What boardgames in the genre do you enjoy?

Are there more being put out at the moment (I spotted a KS for one today)? If so, does that speak to our fears?!

Post apoc board games never really got me going as we Play these scenarios using miniature figures and rules. I could always get a game with buddies who sometimes get burnt out on their Warhammer miniature games.

However now you mentioned it I remember being a bit naughty and getting the Fallen Land: A Post Apocalyptic Board Game game quicker than a V8 Interceptor and must admit the genre is really appealing now.
That 51st State: Master Set looks very interesting too. Would it be worth getting if I already have Imperial Settlers ?.

Neuroshima Hex! is ostensibly post-apocalypse but it is fairly abstract.

Wasteland Express Delivery Service hasn't been published yet, but got some buzz.

Salvation Road is a great 60 min co-op that has a Road Warrior type theme. I like it better than Pandemic at this point.

I have Waste Knights on my watch, the art is PHENOMENAL, but not so sure about the game play. Anyone tried this beauty?

Someone just make an original Fallout trilogy board game already !

That's still my favorite post-apoc universe.

I second this and have made a video about the game's strengths, both as solo play and coop.
