Homemade Fallout Monopoly makes the apocalypse worth it

This is the best way to show that you love someone

Despite my love of board games, I rarely get a chance to play any. My friends and the people I can occasionally stomach socializing with have little interest in sitting down and playing them with me, so I have to content myself with merely looking at them online and in shops while wishing I had better friends.

Friends like this fellow, who made a Fallout version of Monopoly for his extremely lucky missus. It took him eight months to put together, and damn is it lovingly crafted. Singed and worn, it looks just like a game one might find in the post-apocalyptic American wasteland.

Cash has been replaced with caps, properties such as Megaton, New Reno, and Rivet City can be bought, chance cards include things like developing a chem habit, and there are even perks which can be chosen at the start of the game, with more to be claimed when players "level up."

If the bloke wasn't already married, I'd propose.
