Bully Pulpit Games Fiasco RPG: Boxed Set (Revised)

Fiasco - Storytelling, Minimal Set-up, Humorous, Scenario, Role Playing Game

Fiasco is an award-winning, GM-less game for 3-5 players, designed to be played in a few hours with no preparation. During a game you engineer and play out stupid, disastrous situations, usually at the intersection of greed, fear, and lust. It’s like making your own Coen brothers movie, in about the same amount of time it’d take to watch one.

Tell 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 play ordinary people with powerful ambition and poor impulse control.

This edition retains all the features familiar to old friends, while being much more welcoming to new ones.
