51st StateToy Vault is now shipping copies of the 51st State boardgame.

From their announcement:

51st State, the hot new Essen release from Toy Vault and Portal Publishing, is now shipping to distributors. In this exciting game from acclaimed designer Ignacy Trzewiczek, players struggle to maintain stability in a harsh, post-apocalyptic wasteland – will you be able to lead your faction from a simple nomadic tribe to a thriving community? Can you re-start civilization?

With 110 unique cards and 198 colorful cardboard tokens, players will build their factions up by means of commerce, territorial claims, or conquest. Each location provides players with new choices and options, and each leader rewards different paths. Will you follow Borgo the Almighty to glory as a conqueror, or will Mr. President guide you to reconstruction?

51st State ships 8 units per carton. Suggested retail price: $39.99.

    Got it a couple of weeks back, Definitely worth it, although i think it will benefit from further expansions that encourage more player interaction…

      The box design reminds me of Fallout. If you are familiar with fallout, does this game follow or seem to emulate it at all?

        It is a game set in a post-apocalyptic world that Ignacy has used for Neurashima Hex.

        It isn’t related to Fallout except that it uses common themes that a lot of post-apocalyptic stories do.

  • Great game, lots of possibilities and actions available to the players. Same designer as Neuroshima Hex excellent strategy tile game. Highly recommend both of these games.
