Battlestar Galactica: Daybreak Expansion

Fantasy Flight Games are releasing a new expansion for Battlestar Galactica called Daybreak!

I’ve not written up a review of Battlestar Galactica the board game because I’ve not had time to do the game justice, but it’s safe to say it’s one of my favourite board games, if not my favourite.

4 new characters, 4 new Cylon leaders, 4 updated characters new crisis cards, new skills, a mutinee mechanic and much more…

BUT MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL

ASSAULT RAPTORS!

Raptors finally have a point in the game!

I’m going to have to struggle to find a reason not to buy this the day it comes out.

Custom Fallout Board Game Based On Monopoly

This thing is a labour of love, Reddit user XsimonbelmontX made this amazing looking Fallout themed board game out of a Monopoly board for his wife pookiemccool.

Apparently it’s only based on Monopoly but the rules are different. I love the use of bottle caps for money, it looks like he’s added perks that will alter the game play, and from them you can infer that there is some kind of combat mechanic?

I’ve asked him for the rules on the thread and I’ll update this if he posts them. Hopefully he’s deviated away from Monopoly enough to make the game actually fun to play.
