Playset Saturday Night 78 cover.jpg Saturday Night '78

by Will Hindmarch, Wil Wheaton, and Jason Morningstar.

A time of rock and disco, of reckless hedonism and casual sex, a time before consequences. Debauchees high on blow, poppers, or Quaaludes dance and laugh and lust and cry in swank clubs and dirty dives all over the city. Whoever your characters are in the daylight, come dark they transform into sordid stars or disco royalty, beautiful disasters or pitiable victors, ricocheting off each other into the glittering wreckage of imploded parties. Every Saturday night the city's alight with spectacular fiascos.

This playset was first played on Tabletop, where Wil Wheaton hosts celebrity tabletop gaming.

Every so often, Bully Pulpit Games will feature a playset that is unique, wild, heart-wrenching, or otherwise notable. Watch this space!
