Description Edit | History

From the Publisher's Webpage:

THINGS CAN GO WRONG, FAST...

...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 Mexicans 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. It won't go well for them, to put it mildly, and in the end it will probably all go south in a glorious heap of jealousy, murder, and recrimination. It's designed to be played in a single session, usually around two and a half hours, with no prep.

From the Designer:

A game of Fiasco begins with The Setup -- a group activity where you and your friends create a potent and unstable set of circumstances. You choose a Playset, which fixes the game in a particular time and place -- a contemporary southern town, maybe, or the old west. Using a pile of dice, you create an interconnected circle of Relationships and Details pulled from the Playset. Once you’ve created a situation poised on the brink of juicy disaster, you define characters based on your choices.

6 Fiasco Smartboard Utility Version 1.0
Since I use Fiasco in my high school Creative Writing class fairly regularly, I designed a smart board utility (for use with the Smart Notebook 11 application) that manages the dice and dice pools during the game. Dice can be tapped on the board to roll, and dragged and dropped into the various pools to manage information about the game. Anyhow, I thought I'd share it with the community in case someone else has access to a Smartboard and wanted a simple way of managing the game.
