My husband spent 8 months making this for me as a birthday gift. He posted it on Reddit last week and IGN, CNET and various other websites wrote articles about it. He doesn't have a Craftster account but I felt it belonged here to help inspire other crafters.

He started with the Monopoly board and kept the concept of buying properties and the last player standing wins. The rest of the game however has been enhanced.

He burnt the Fallout logo into a jewelry box that he found at a thrift store.



Here is a picture of the board with Fallout related properties from all versions of the game. (Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas)



The first level of the box includes the currency, the cards, the perks, mines and houses.



The drawer includes the tokens, the board and The Wasteland Survival Guide (the manual).



Here are the tokens. Liberty Prime was made out of pieces of Iron Man, Captain America and several army men. He also made a Pipboy 3000, Abraxo cleaner, a Poseidon Energy gas pump, a Nuka Cola machine, a Vault-Tec lunchbox and a six pack of Nuka Cola.



Here's a close up of the Pipboy because it is just so damn impressive!



Here are the properties and the currency. (Nuka Cola Quartz $1, Nuka Cola $5, Nuka Cola Fusion $10, Nuka Cola Quantum $20, Nuka Cola Victory $50, Sunset Sarsaparilla $100, Sunset Sarsaparilla Star $500)



An example of some of the Vault-Tec cards. He made over 100 different ones! There are attack cards that cause other players to lose money. There are gambling cards for the casino properties and several others.



And lastly, some of the perks and what they do. You get one to start out and more as you collect all of one property color.



He put so much time and creativity into this! I am fairly crafty but couldn't imagine modifying a game and coming up with so many new rules. We have played a few times already with friends and it is so much fun!! Thanks for looking! <3

He had to have an incredible amount of patience! Just the currency alone was 50 of each color that he had to create the logo for then print, cut, glue and coat. As a crafter I understand the dedication that it took and don't know that I could do something so tedious!

I saw this on reddit and was floored by it there, too.  The amount of detail is just amazing, you can SEE how much dedication went into making it.  I love the caps!  I imagine I'd spend more time playing this than the games themselves Tongue

When he gave it to me I had to wait downstairs. I came upstairs to the sound of The Ink Spots - I don't want to set the world on fire and a note that said "You will need this." with a bobbypin. He had attached a diary lock for me to pick, lol.

I definitely feel loved! This is way better than anything I have made him over the years!

wow this is so incredibly amazing. the work put into it is enough to be admired by anyone but i particularly love it because i collect board games and monopoly is my favorite and i've been obsessed with fallout 3 since my boyfriend moved in with his ps3 6 months ago (ive been trying to convince him to go as our fallout characters for halloween this year but he doesnt think anyone will get it). This totally makes me want to try and make one myself.

If you do I want to see pictures! Fallout is hands down my favorite video game series. I started with Fallout 3 and then of course Fallout New Vegas but I have gone back and played Fallout 1 & 2 on PC. Fallout 3 is the only game I have 100% completion on. I am playing through New Vegas again to pick up some of the stuff I missed and I need to get around to playing the expansions.

I am actually planning to have one of the achievements from New Vegas tattooed sometime in the next year or so. I have been wanting a Fallout tattoo for a while but finally decided on an image. I will definitely share once I get it! Until then it is a surprise because to my knowledge and per Google searches, no one else has gotten this tattooed yet.

I have the Vault-Tec symbol tattooed in white on the inside of my arm near the crease of my elbow - I didn't want something overtly Fallout, but I wanted something that other Fallout gamers would recognize.

So I finally got a chance to show this to my boyfriend, i'm pretty sure he wants to marry your husband Wink and he's now insisting that I make him one just like it.....so I may be begging you for more detailed pics and explanations of the new rules  Tongue

and i think i finally talked him into being our fallout characters for halloween  Grin he spent all last preparing by crouching down in "sneak mode" and walking around the apartment trying to "steal" things from me, it was too funny......now i just gotta figure out how to make a pip boy and a rocket launcher...

Haha, that's awesome! Basically he integrated perks from the video games and created hundreds of custom cards for attacks and things. If you make one please share pictures!

so like instead of community chest cards causing good or bad things to happen, the cards are perks that cause things to happen?

guess i need to start making a list of perks and figuring out how i can integrate them, I'll definitely post pics if i finish. i think this is gonna be one of those things i work on a little here and there but i totally wanna do it

No the perks are separate. There are Vault Tec cards that are like Community Chest and Chance but Fallout themed. There are attack cards, gambling cards, defense cards, cards that get you into fights with creatures. He created over 140 different cards and it completely changes the game.
