Bully Pulpit Games

Fiasco is an award winning, GM less game for 3 to 5 players, designed to be played in a few hours with 6 sided dice and no preparation. During a game you will 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

An Ennies Judge's Spotlight award recipient. Fiasco is a roleplaying game about ordinary people with powerful ambition and poor impulse control. 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.

I prefer more structure in my storytelling—concrete points to push off of and hit my head on. This was far too loose—flaccid, really—with no real sense of risk or danger. More of an improv activity than a *game* game. Shooting the shit instead of shooting the It, if you will.

I respect where it's coming from and what it's trying to do but it just doesn't work for us.

If someone 'plays to win', it might fall flat. As a tool to create insane stories: almost perfect.
