Jumpin' Jesus on a pogo stick! You're the first one to make it through alive, let alone manage a return trip.— George to the Courier after they make it to Nellis Air Force Base and back.

George is a prospector found near Fields' shack in 2281.


George is a self-proclaimed gambler and scavenger that can be found near Nellis Air Force Base. He says that he makes his money from gambling and "reclaiming goods that are no longer being used."[1] He places double or nothing wagers with travelers, betting that they cannot get to the gate of Nellis AFB and back alive.

  • Sometimes, before or after the Courier talks to him, and leaves and comes back or reloads a save, he can be already dead. This will only happen if the Courier has gone through the bombardment and retreated to try again or made it through and came back. However, most of the caps spent can be taken back from his body, but sometimes, the reward he promised will not be present. There is no fix to this other than console commands or reloading a save.
  • George can be killed without a loss or gain in Karma.
  • George will make a wager on the player character getting back alive. His wager is 300 caps. If a Barter check of 40 is passed, he will only need to be given 200 caps. However, passing the Barter check actually nets less caps on the wager (600 vs 400).
  • Optionally, upon returning after the bombardment, if a Speech check of 60 is passed, the Courier may threaten <lie> to have the Boomers change their target trajectory, forcing George to add an additional 100 caps to the wager.


George appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. The Courier: "You can tell me, or you can tell the underside of my boot."
    George: "[SUCCEEDED] Whoa, simmer down. I'll tell you. I'm a gambler and a scavenger. I've made some cash from gambling, and some cash from... reclaiming goods that are no longer being used. Now do you want my help or not?"
