Yes it is "only" Monopoly - but is much better than FFG and Games Workshop in components and design. Admit: Makes you want to play Monopoly

Monopoly with a fallout theme and an ability to upgrade and attack other players... Give me a sec to pick my mouth off the floor. That is pure awesome.

Sounds like too much monopoly for me.

Nice work on making that....
... but I really wish it wasn't based on Monopoly.

Still ... really impressive on a graphical level.

While it certainly is not going to have me running to play Monopoly it looks really cool! A lot of time and effort was put into making this and it shows.

Same here. Im still hunting a copy to see just what they did with it. Looks allmost like a new game with a monopoly theme. Like the 3d verticle clue game.

Radioactive dust after a nuclear detonation... goo

aheh...

Fallout is a popular PC game based loosely on an older PC game called Wasteland (and nods to the Gamma World RPG) which used the Tunnels and Trolls game system, (same designer). Fallout is simmilar to the original Baldurs Gate D&D PC games, Isometric, robust system, post apocalyptic setting.

Theres since been a couple of 3d PC and console games based on the franchise, among other endeavors.

An impressive work, but if only they'd used their post-apocalyptic craft skills for good instead of evil.

The box looks nice. Everything else is just Monopoly with alternate art.

Funny. When you said "jaw dropping" and "Monopoly", I said to myself, "it probably wont beat the Fallout Monopoly." And, I was right

I'd say "roll and move" is a pretty core part of what people hate with Monopoly. I've played a non-random "Monopoly" style game (you choose where you go, but like in Thebes, the farther you go, the longer you have to wait for your turn again) that I'd say most people here would love.
