Fiasco is an award-winning roleplaying game about ordinary people in wild situations where things go disastrously wrong. You play characters with powerful ambition and poor impulse control. Lives and reputations will be lost, painful wisdom will be gained, and if you are really lucky, you just might end up back where you started. You probably won’t be lucky.

Fiasco is a GM-less game for 3-5 players, designed to be played in a few hours with 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.

New Boxed Edition

This new boxed edition of Fiasco incorporates everything the creators have learned about stupid disasters, poorly-timed plans, and precious things on fire into a new accessible format that is very beginner-friendly. Everything you need to get started is in the box.

The Playset Decks

Dragon Slayers

So yeah, we rode into this miserable little town, a bunch of outsiders ready to solve their problem. Solve a dragon. Well, we solved it, and here we are, ready to kick back and split up the loot and regale those bumpkins with tales of mummy rot and devilish traps and the dragon we whacked. Of course it’s never that simple. Adventurers like us all have egos, and we all have a past.

Tales from Suburbia

It’s a nice town full of nice people. Not much happens here, and that’s how we like it. Or rather, lots of things happen here, things requiring antibiotics and things dusted with cocaine and occasionally, just occasionally, things spattered in blood. But we keep all that quiet, and we keep the sidewalks clean, and not much happens here, and that’s how we like it

Poppleton Mall

It’s time to make a trip to Poppleton Mall for the best in shopping, entertainment, and dining! From Arapaho Leather Goods to T. Esquire, from the Poppleton 8 multiplex to our beautiful glass atrium, Poppleton Mall truly has something for everyone. Join us for the holidays, when Santa reigns over his throne room and the atrium rings with the sounds of merrymaking from the magical Winterland stage! Your children will always remember their visit to Poppleton Mall’s Santaland.
