PRESS RELEASE

Bully Pulpit Games Releases Three-volume Fiasco Playset Anthology

Publisher Announces a New Supplement Series for Award-winning game Fiasco

Chapel Hill, North Carolina (December 4, 2015) – Bully Pulpit Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of the Fiasco Playset Anthology, a new supplement series for their award-winning game Fiasco. The series includes three volumes, each an annual collection of the Playsets of the Month originally released digitally between 2010 and 2012. This is the first time these playsets will be available together and in print.

Each volume of this anthology is a 6”x9” full-color, perfect-bound book with 144 pages, including forewords by noted comic authors Kurtis Wiebe, Kelly Sue DeConnick, and Matt Fraction. Each book also includes new playsets and illustrations by Jason Morningstar, layout work by Nathan Paoletta, and three beautiful new cover designs by John Harper, designed to compliment the original books.

According to the publisher’s description, “if the rules of Fiasco are the gun, a good playset is the bullet that makes it a stupid and dangerous object. In each of these three volumes you’ll find a baker’s dozen of dumb situations and criminal folly, all tied together with an exclusive playset written by Fiasco designer Jason Morningstar.”

“It’s a chance to dance with Poe’s Imp of the Perverse, to give in, to make the dangerous choice—it’s the same release I get from the act of writing. But writing is a solitary discipline for the most part and Fiasco… Fiasco is so gloriously communal.” — Kelly Sue DeConnick, writer of Captain Marvel, Pretty Deadly, and Bitch Planet

“Traditionally, players succeed in RPG’s by surviving the session and gaining material goods. Fiasco throws that out the window because it offers more. Success is defined by players following their character’s wants, needs, and flaws in service to the story, regardless of the outcome, good or bad. That is why Fiasco is my favourite narrative driven game of all time.” — Kurtis J. Wiebe, writer of Rat Queens

“The joy of Fiasco comes when the line between game and story blurs and suddenly you’re sitting around a table with the brilliant and wonderful souls you allow into your home and you all try to make the perfect Big Black Box. Impose logic, reason, design, over the chaotic horror of existence because in story-space, in a game-space, because here we CAN. We aren’t just allowed but it’s ENCOURAGED.” — Matt Fraction, writer of Hawkeye and Sex Criminals

The Fiasco Playset Anthology books are scheduled to be released and available in stores in mid-December of 2015.

Juggernaut Cover

JUGGERNAUT IS NEVER WRONG

JUGGERNAUT is a live-action game about free will by Jason Morningstar, and featuring photography by J.R. Blackwell. It is designed for 4-6 players and 1-2 hours and plays like a creepy Twilight Zone episode. The game requires cards but the rules are available as a free download.

It is July third, 1950. The Korean War is eight days old. National Security Council Report 68 is sitting on Harry Truman’s desk, a grim outline of the Cold War that is to enfold the world for the next 40 years. Alan Turing’s paper “Computing Machinery and Intelligence” is circulating for review. Cinderella is a box office sensation.

And you have invented a computer that can see the future.

JUGGERNAUT requires almost no preparation, replay value is high, and it is always weird and intense To play. To play you’ll need the deck of cards (either the premium, print-on-demand deck or the print-and-play version you cut yourself). You’ll also need a private space and the soundtrack MP3, which simulates the ominous roar of the machine. Labcoats and other props are optional!

Available now from DrivethruRPG.com!
