The Strip letters are a series of paper notes in Fallout: New Vegas. They can be found scattered around the Strip in the casinos and NCR Embassy.


Strip Letter 1


Dear Edna,

Lost all our money at the casinos. Send more ASAP. Will get it all back. Trust me.


Strip Letter 2


Billy, don't be mad, but I lost all our savings at The Tops last night. It's not my fault, I was on a hot streak and was up 2000 caps, but then I had a run of bad luck and lost it all. I'm going to go see if I can scrounge up a few caps and try to get it all back. Please don't hate me.


Strip Letter 3


Hey Mom!

I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that I didn't lose all my money on the 'silly gambling games' as you call them. The bad news is that I lost all my money on one of the girls at Gomorrah. You would have liked her though, she was a real classy lady. Well, since there's nothing left for me here and I'm all out of caps, I'll be heading home soon.

Love you!


Strip Letter 4



All my years of hard work have finally paid off. I hit the jackpot last night over at The Tops! I'll have to use a lot of the money to pay off some of the debts I've accrued over the years, but there is plenty left over to live well for the rest of our lives. I told you it'd happen!

See you soon!


Strip Letter 5



I think it's time we see other people. We're just not a good fit anymore. Besides, I met this amazing and rich guy at The Ultra-Luxe last night. He's a real winner, not a dirty farmhand like yourself.

I never want to see you again.


Strip Letter 6


Dear Tracy,

Things have been going well for me here in Vegas. I've had pretty decent luck at the tables lately and have been able to almost break even. I'm going to hit the roulette tables again tomorrow - I'm going to win big this time, real big. I can feel it.

Wish me luck!


Strip Letter 7


Those gangsters at the Tops cheated me. I know it, they're cheats and liars and thieves, their games are rigged. I've lost every last cap, every NCR bill I had left. Those slot machines, you can never win. They're programmed to just make you lose lose lose. Their cards are marked so their dealers can cheat you, I promise you this. Invisible ink or something. And their roulette tables? Please, what a joke. The ball must be magnetic, and they can tell it to land wherever they want. The people that do win there are plants, employees. There's no way I could have lost like that unless they were cheating, no way. No way.

Those fancy suits can't buy them class, they're just a bunch of damn con men. They've taken everything from me. I have nothing left. Nothing...

What am I going to do? I was supposed to win big here, this is where dreams happen. People told me I could make a fortune here, I just had to have the caps, and I could win myself a new future, now it's all gone, all gone...

Strip Letter 8


Dear Bravo Company,

Being transferred to the NCR Embassy on the Strip has been the greatest thing that has happened to me since joining the NCR. It's a pretty easy gig watching the troopers during the day and making sure they don't get in trouble and then we get to spend our free time hanging out at the bars and clubs, getting drunk and partying.

Wish you were here.

Private Seamer

Strip Letter 9


To: Private Humphreys

This has been the best 3-day pass yet. I learned my lesson early and ditched the casinos for the girls at Gomorrah. Now that is money well spent. You can't get that kind of service at Camp Golf.

Going to sleep now while it's daylight and head back out to Gomorrah tonight for one last hurrah.

Private Watkins

Strip Letter 10


To: Private Jackson

This is the last time I take your advice. I went to the bar at Gomorrah, like you said. I got piss drunk, kicked out after getting too friendly with the dancers, fell into the gutter and puked all over myself before being picked up by some MP's.

Next thing I know I'm waking up in the drunk tank two days later. Thanks for wasting my pass, jerk.

Private Daniels

Strip Letter 11


To: Private Erwin

If I hear of you pulling another prank on one of my troopers that causes them to return to duty without their clothing fully intact, I will personally make sure you get transferred to Camp Forlorn Hope and don't come back.

I'll be watching you.

Lt. Ashville
