I played the base Fallout boardgame at the Terminal City Tabletop Convention back in March, and it was a fun game. Went on a bit too long, but I think with more plays it would be very great and cut down on the time issue.
Video games and board games have often had a bit of cross over (though I’m waiting for the First-Person Shooter version of Catan, myself).
Titles like XCom: the Board Game come to mind as games based on video game franchises that actually end up being pretty good games (or so I’ve heard, as I haven’t played this particular one).
So imagine the shouts of glee upon seeing the Fantasy Flight Games announcement that Fallout: the Boardgame is coming in 4th Quarter 2017! I know I did a double take, and started drooling a bit after reading more of the announcement on their site.
