Fiasco is an award-winning storytelling game inspired by cinematic tales of small-time capers gone disastrously wrong.

You’ll tell a story about ordinary people 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.

This new 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!
