Fallout Shelter: The Board Game Announced

Fantasy Flight Games has announced a new board game based on Bethesda’s Fallout Shelter.

Fallout Shelter: The Board Game is a worker placement game for up to four players about managing your very own vault. The Overseer has suddenly passed away, and the inhabitants of your vault are deciding who to elect as their new leader.

Use your followers to improve the vault, manage resources, and defend against outside threats so you can earn the votes of your fellow vault dwellers in the coming election. You can read more from the game’s announcement here.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

The bombs have fallen, but under 2,000 feet of bedrock your Vault-Tec vault is a thriving and joyous community—at least until the untimely death of your overseer. Now, it’s up to you and your fellow officers to keep your vault dwellers safe, productive, and happy. Compete with the other players to see who can inspire the most happiness and be elected as the new overseer!

Fantasy Flight Games invites you to create a brighter future underground with Fallout Shelter: The Board Game, a post nuclear board game for 2 to 4 players based on the hit mobile game in the Fallout universe!

In Fallout Shelter, you play as one of the officers in your very own vault, trying to foster happiness among your vault dwellers while keeping them safe from the radiation and monstrosities of the Wasteland that awaits outside your utopia. You will need to assign your dwellers to tasks, manage the vault’s resources, and keep everyone safe from threats. Keep in mind, whichever of you can inspire the most happiness will win the hearts and minds of your dwellers for the coming election of the new Overseer!

Fallout Shelter: The Board Game is set to release in Q1 2020 for $39.99.
