How would you know that, that you were the last man alive?
Fallout is the new game by Fantasy Flight, and its unboxing calls for something special!
I well remember spending many hours playing the original Fallout computer game and immersing myself in its grim-but-funny 1950s-meets-post-apocalypse world. I’ve dabbled in the subsequent 3D versions, though I haven’t enjoyed them quite as much – in part due to the occasional glitches that can plague the series, but mostly because I just don’t have the time anymore for open-world time-munching computer games.
Which is why it’s so satisfying to see this particular universe meet boardgaming in the form of Fantasy Flight’s newie, Fallout. I know very little about the game but, chump that I am, I fell for the siren call of cross-marketing-IP-leveraging and immediately grabbed myself a copy. Hope it’s a good game. But in the meantime here I am unboxing the thing with the help of old friend and frequent battle report opponent, Will, who happened to be around when the box fell on my doorstep. Banter ensued. Enjoy!
