Maybe some dude from youth group talked you into boosting a case of motor oil, but now your cousin is dead in a swamp and you killed him.
Maybe you and your girlfriend figured you could scare your wife into a divorce, but things went pear-shaped and now a gang of cranked-up skinheads with latex gloves and a pit bull are looking for you.
It seemed like such a good idea at the time.
Fiasco is inspired by cinematic tales of small time capers gone disastrously wrong – inspired by films like Blood Simple, Fargo, The Way of the Gun, Burn After Reading, and A Simple Plan.
You’ll play ordinary people with powerful ambition and poor impulse control. There will be big dreams and flawed execution. In the end it will probably all go south in a glorious heap of jealousy, murder, and recrimination.
Lives and reputations will be lost, painful wisdom will be gained, and if you are really lucky, you just might end up back where you started.
Fiasco is an award winning game that people love because it requires no prep, GM, or experience!
It’s like making your own Coen brothers movie, in about the same amount of time it’d take to watch one.
