    After the fall of the lady Senator the commander's commanding officer called him on his drinking he went into rehab and finished out his pentagon career retiring as a Captain. He his wife and son (now secure) ended up at his retirement home in Boca Raton, Florida.

    The representative came out smelling like a rose. First he found and exposed the link between the lady Senator and Vlad the spy. Eventually he became President of the US and had the secret service smuggling young Filipino Boys into him at the White House. What a fiasco!!

    My Naval commander, who got very wishy-washy over the attempt to bribe the representative for a job in the IRS, (After his drinking made the representative question if he actually saw anything back at Subic Bay) fell to the pressures of home and his failure to carry out his plot. A plot which was put into action in order to secure his sons (He has Downs Syndrome and will need help for the rest of his life) future. He became a sad drunk haunting the Capitol Mall with a brown paper bag containing Kentucky Whiskey. He became a pawn -- first being influenced by the Lady Senator to expose the Representative and his boy-love to the Justice department and then helping the Representative by saying she influenced the accusation. The witch hunt was the start of the end for her nibs.

    It was certainly a fiasco for Bill and Nick. The lady Senator and her industrialist husband were both found to have separate ties to the same white Russian spy for the Soviets (All buried in the dossiers). He was forced to tank his proposal for the contract (ruining his company) and help the FBI get the dirt on Vladimir Potemkin. She tried to keep her involvement secret but was found out (by the Representative) and went off to prison for a long stay (Ending up bagging groceries and being recognized at least once a week). Her husband committed suicide when he found out that she was also being pumped for info by Vlad, though she seemed more willing and appeared to have a crush on the dapper Russian.

    I had a great time as the Navy Pilot -- reduced to working in the pentagon because his drinking affected his nerves -- Trying to put the squeeze on a ex-pilot hero representative who had a thing for Filipino boys (Joey). Who was duking it out with a ruthless and cunning female Senator from Vermont over some security dossiers (Nick). Who was married to a defense contractor (Bill) who wanted to win a contract from the government for some all-weather air to air radar contract. My character was assessing the proposals for that contract.

    It seemed as though everybody had a good time politicking in DC73, even though my character ended up committing suicide. That's the way it goes in Fiasco sometimes though. I really enjoyed the interaction between characters in this heavy roleplaying game. If we decide to play Fiasco again, I'll be there.

    Fiasco was a great game. It was the first time I had played, and I can't wait to play again :-)

    Instead of doing a waitlist, I think any number of people can show up and those who don't get into Fiasco can play a game from the demo section.

      I am OK with it. They have enough space.

      I prefer registering players before the game. I want to encourage members to actually use the Meetup site Bill and I are paying for.

    Hey guys, mind if I take the 5th seat? I just got my copy of Fiasco a couple weeks ago and I'm excited to try it out!

    I vote for DC73. I played the suburbia setting that's in the book the other night and can't wait to play more

    This game is probably my new favorite party game.

      Fantastically, well up until my mom melted off my face. Okay, well actually it went pretty awfully. I mean it wasn't like she was out of line, I did steal some heroin and a 'amateur' home made film from her the person she was having an affair with. So actually, it was very awful...

    I like pretty much any of them. I'll adjust to what is needed.

    Sorry about the delay guys, my senior project is kicking my backside a bit. Here are a few options:
    DC73 -- Cold War in the time of Nixon in Washington DC. Vietnam, Radicalization, Politics, Spies and Drugs, sounds like a fun place?

    News Channel 6 -- The last place TV Station in a small US city. Think of the Mary Tyler Moore show with a seedy twist. The Zoo -- A zoo on it's last leg and the people trying to get by. Can the Zoo be saved or is a fiasco about to ensue?

    Transatlantic -- It is 1932 and the passenger ship "Leviathan" is on it's maiden voyage through an Icy Ocean sailing from Portsmouth to New York. What could go wrong?

    Horse Fever -- A day at the races. A peaceful bit of betting that could let you hit it rich. The sun is in the sky, the horses are at the gate and you have a hot tip. Nothing could go wrong. Back to the Old House -- Something went wrong that night in the Old House. Something you can't forget and you are drawn to it. What secret could be lurking?

    Fiasco is a GM-less game for 3-5 players, designed to be played in a few hours with six-sided dice and no preparation. 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.

    I will go ahead and list some different playsets tonight -- So we can pick which one we want to do.
