Fallout: The Board Game Lets you Play Monopoly After the Apocalypse

This custom version of Monopoly, crafted by PinkAxolotl, really has to be seen to be believed. It's not like it's just a regular board with a few Fallout references made here and there. It's as Fallout-themed as it could possibly hope for.

And how Fallout is that? Let's see. Every square has been renamed, of course. The board has been entirely customised ("free parking" replaced with Fallout 3's "please stand by" screen, for example). The community chest and chance cards have been replaced by perks. The pieces have been "rusted" to give them that post-apocalyptic look. There's even Nuka Cola caps that can be used as money.

About the only complaint I could make is that it appears to have all its houses, pieces and dice. It's hard enough keeping track of all that crap in these peaceful times of ours, so Lord only knows how they all survived the apocalypse!

Now, I love Fallout VERY MUCH INDEED, but I would have the same problem with this as I have with normal Monopoly - I hate it! I would constant be wanting to flip the board and end the game.

I think that's known as the Megaton effect.
