Usually, in reviews, we leave the “verdict” until last. This time, however, the Fallout Board Game is a close adaptation to the video game and universe that fans will love. Fantasy Star Games has done an almost perfect job at translating what you see on the PC screen to the tabletop.
Fallout is a board game that can be played between one and four players where you build the wasteland out of hex tiles that are then explored by survivors. Much like the video game, players will be able to explore, loot, quest and fight robots, mutated creatures and other human enemies.
You’ll first begin the game by taking a fair while in the setup and learning the rules. Making it a close adaption to the electronic version means there are a lot of parts to pop out the cardboard and get ready. There includes three different stacks of cards, minute figures, tokens, monster icons, SPECIAL letters, experience pegs, and the player board for tracking equipment and experience points.
