Fiasco: American Disasters

Product Image

American Disasters is a collection of highly-polished Fiasco Playsets along with new optional rules for extended campaign-style play. These rules, called Trainwreck Mode, offer a new experience for veteran Fiasco players and address a frequent request by fans by helping you chain multiple sessions and Playsets together for a longer, richer, and more catastrophic story!

The included Playsets were written and developed in-house and chosen specifically for this collection to match the Trainwreck rules. They’re all heavily-playtested and proven fiascos!

Business Casual—Pour yourself a cup of terrible coffee and enjoy this snapshot of life in a corporate IT office, complete with cubicles, malfunctioning copiers, and impotent, white-collar rage. It’s the Monday that never ends!

Rainbow Mountain— Join Michael Tree and his family and build utopia on a few perfect acres of mountain land, far from the troubles of the modern world. Well, except all those problems you brought with you, of course.

Poppleton Mall— Come visit our shops during the holidays, when Santa reigns over his throne room and the atrium rings with the sounds of merry-making from the magical Winterland stage! Your children will always remember their visit to Poppleton Mall!

Fiasco: Run, Fools, Run

Product Image

RUN, FOOLS, RUN is a collection of highly-polished Fiasco playsets written and developed in-house. Each is themed around organized stupidity, and each manages to bend the time-tested Fiasco playset framework in new and exciting ways. With something dangerous, idiotic, or just plain cringe-worthy on every page Run, Fools, Run will kick your next Fiasco session into high gear!

The included Playsets were written and developed in-house and chosen specifically for this collection to match the Trainwreck rules. They’re all heavily-playtested and proven fiascos!

The Last Heist—Pull on your ski mask and get ready! Your crew of criminal geniuses is about to commit an ambitious robbery, and not for the first time. Let’s hope it goes better today. This playset includes a hack for “Heist Dice” to add some extra twists to your story and better emulate bank heist films.

White Line Fever— Hurtling down the highway in a 1973 AMC Matador, you are an extremely unlikely group of individuals. How did you get here? Why are you going so fast? The answers, and your destiny, are all right here in this cramped seventies muscle car.

The Murderists— You’ve got a contract, advance money, and a dossier on your target. You may not get along with your team, but you’re professionals so you will get the job done. One problem: You’re pretty sure one of your team is a snitch, or worse, a Federal agent. Time to clean house.

The Climb

Product Image

We have arrived at Camp III, precariously perched 6,900 meters up on a cliff-face on Gangkhar Puensum, high above the Tarphel Valley of Bhutan. In an age of well-trodden paths, no human being has ever been higher on this peak than we are right now. This is a secret first ascent without the knowledge of Bhutanese authorities, who have forbidden climbing for religious reasons since 1994.

For the six of us, summiting ensures a place in climbing history. We all want a shot, but only two of us can make it to the top. Who will it be? And what fate awaits the “lucky” ones above 7000 meters?

THE CLIMB is a short, six-person, live-action game about an expedition to a virgin peak in the Himalayas. The game requires six players, a large quiet space, and should take 2-3 hours to play. There is no Game Master, but you’ll need one player to organize and facilitate.

This game includes a 14 page PDF organized for double-sided printing, which will be used in play as a rules cheat sheet, six individual character sheets, and a Summit Team information sheet. In addition, there is a sheet of name tags (suitable for printing on labels) and a 91 minute MP3 snowstorm soundtrack that is used as a countdown for events during the game.

Night Witches

Product Image

There was a night bomber regiment in World War Two composed entirely of women. Natural-born Soviet airwomen.

These 200 women and girls, flying outdated biplanes from open fields near the front lines, attacked the invading German forces every night for 1,100 consecutive nights. When they ran out of bombs they dropped railroad ties.

To each other they were sisters, with bonds forged in blood and terror. To the Red Army Air Force they were an infuriating feminist sideshow. To the Germans they were simply Nachthexen - Night Witches.

Night Witches is a game about women at war. As a member of the 588th Night Bomber Regiment, you'll answer the call of your Motherland in her darkest hour. Can you do your duty and strike blow after blow against the Fascists? Can you overcome discrimination and outright sabotage and rise above your sexist comrades? Are there limits to patriotism - or endurance? Play Night Witches and find out.

Durance

Product Image

On a remote planet far from civilization, the worst criminal scum from a dozen star systems have been dumped, charged with building new lives under the watchful eye of Authority. Within a brutal hierarchy of savagery and servility, convicts and guards alike must make hard choices. Every colonist has their own code of conduct and their own aspirations—aspirations that invariably come at the expense of others. This dangerous new world is too small for everyone to succeed. In fact, it may well be too small for anyone to succeed. Only the shrewdest, the toughest and the luckiest will get a chance to find out. Will you be among them?

Durance is a fast-paced, low-prep, highly collaborative game in the tradition of Fiasco. It is designed to play fast and be easy to learn with a detailed, engaging science fiction setting.
