Anyway, I've never played any D&D style RPGs but a few friends and I just couldn't pass up the concept of this. In case you didn't want to follow the link here's the elevator pitch:
Fiasco Rulebook wrote:Fiasco is inspired by cinematic tales of small time capers gone disastrously wrong – particularly films like Blood Simple, Fargo, The Way of the Gun, Burn After Reading, and A Simple Plan. 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.
We haven't tried it yet but will be taking it for a spin Thursday night. I know we're a video games forum but I thought someone might have been familiar with it
