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.
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.
