Fiasco one-shot in July

Fiasco is a GM-less, no-prep game for 3-5 players in which we create and play out a Coen Brothers-esque scenario in about two and a half hours. The rules are simple, and the game is usually hilarious.

http://www.bullypulpitgames.com/games/fiasco/

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 collapse into 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, your guy just might end up back where he started.

    What do a corrupt nurse, a greedy madam, a vengeful bookie, an inept people smuggler, and a high-ranking socialist have in common with a shipping container full of dead hookers and a swallowed condom full of diamonds?

    Bother, I love Fiasco, but my work has sent me to China until the latter half of September.

    I really wish I could join you, however things are crazy for me right now (just moved and getting hitched this month). Let me know if you plan another night later in teh fall and I'll try to be there. :)

    Can't hurt! I also asked this group's organizers to promote this to a real meetup from a suggested meetup, which might get us more eyeballs. There's three of us currently—we can take two more players.

    Do you want me to pimp this on the DenverGamers reddit and see if we can score one more?

    I'm probably fretting for naught, 6 will probably be fine.

    The only game store I know even a little is Total Escape up in Broomfield, and that's not very much. Crit Castle will do nicely. Looking forward to this. :)

    Or, if you want to pick a store near you and secure a table, we can go there.

    How about we start by 6:30?

  • Kristian

    It's a trifle far but should be doable. Fiancee is tied up with a class next week unfortunately but I've got another friend who's interested lined up already. Is there a little wiggle room with the start time just in case we're late?

    Kristian, how does Tuesday the 17th, 6pm-9pm, at Crit Castle in Aurora work for you? I chatted with Austin, one of the owners, and he was cool with us playing there if we warned them in advance. https://www.facebook.com/CritCastleGames/info

    Ooh, Wil Wheaton's TableTop is doing a two-part episode about Fiasco starting this Friday. That might interest people in this meetup! http://tabletop.geekandsundry.com/

    We can certainly do this again next month, if there's interest. I'm also running it at TactiCon, as are some other people.

    I'm curious about Fiasco, but with a kid right now I'm pretty busy, and I'm about to go on vacation, so probably I won't make it. I wanted to indicate interest, though.

    So far, Kristian suggests not Monday or Wednesday, which works for me. We could use one or two more players! And we need to pick a place.
