Well, the world’s come to an end again. Damnit, Todd! I told you to clean up your stuff! Now we’re living in a blasted-out nuclear wasteland! It’s not going to be easy, surviving out here. Good thing there’s the Fallout board game from Fantasy Flight. It’ll help teach us how to live in this environment. Probably want to start checking out what all will be inside of it, like this preview article here.
From the preview:
Welcome to the Wasteland, Survivor! Now, we know it’s a bit jarring to see your new home in such a state, but we’re here to help you come to terms with the post-nuclear journey that lays before you and figure out where to go next! For example, have you ever fought a Deathclaw?? Been irradiated before? The possibilities are truly endless, so rip up that bucket list you’ve been working on. It’s time to start fresh. For example… instead of meeting celebrities, you can now meet raiders! And with the majority of Boston in shambles, you absolutely must check out the delightful, synth-hating community of Diamond City. Isn’t the apocalypse fun?
In order to master anything, you’re going to need some practice, so we at Vault-Tec have partnered with Fantasy Flight Games to create Fallout: The Board Game, a one-to-four participant Wasteland tutorial in tabletop form. This fabulously dangerous recreation of the irradiated wastes will teach you step by misstep exactly where raiders like to set their mines, how not to pick a fight with a super mutant, and what an utter inconvenience it is to get addicted to chems. Even better, you can pre-order the tabletop simulation of Fallout on the Fantasy Flight Games website now!
There’s nothing quite like preparing to prepare for the aftermath of nuclear war, so let’s dive into the basics of Fallout!
