The Carnage Fiasco

5223887The New England Role Playing Association‘s actual play podcast released a recording of a game of Fiasco played at Carnage Noir last month. Fiasco is a game “about ordinary people with powerful ambition and poor impulse control.” Players collaborate in building a story in which things are practically guaranteed to go horribly, horribly wrong for their characters.

If you’re curious about Fiasco or story games in general, not only is an actual play recording a good way to sample the model, but you can watch a thorough introduction of the concept in a three part Fiasco episode on Wil Wheaton’s Tabletop web series.
