(Not Such a) Fiasco
A downloadable Mod
FIASCO is an award-winning, GM-less game for 3-5 players by Bully Pulpit Games, designed to be played in a few hours with six-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.
(Not Such a) Fiasco
The original Fiasco Classic is a highly collaborative GM-less storytelling game that nearly always ends in failure, death, dismemberment… Well, in a fiasco. That's kind of the point. But what if you want something a little more… Well, not such a shit show?
(Not Such a) Fiasco is a modified, softer Tilt and Aftermath very much based on the original Fiasco, which we hope will enable different kinds of endings and opportunities we wanted to play with and wanted to make available to players. In (Not Such a) Fiasco, things can and will certainly go wrong, but it’s not so inevitable that they end in a fiasco. The goal of this mod is to expand the kinds of tales that players can generate.
(Not Such a) Fiasco uses the softer Tilt Table and a modified Aftermath to enable borked endings less likely. These are based off the work of Ronald Tobias’ 20 Plots and Georges Polti’s The Thirty-Six Dramatic Situations.
