A Game About Powerful Ambition and Poor Impulse Control….
FIASCO is an award-winning story-telling 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.

The playset that we will be running is:
THE SCORE (the synopsis):
“WE LOVE POPPLETON TERRACE”
It’s a nice middle class neighborhood with a nice mix of professional families and a nice, powerful homeowners association. Good people who get involved and know their neighbors. People who aren’t afraid to tell you that the shade of blue you are painting your house is not exactly allowed by the association covenant.
But lately things have been unsettled around Poppleton Terrace – property values are falling, crime is rising, long-time residents have been less than receptive to the suggestions of the standards commit-tee, and now new people are moving in. People who are not like us. At all.
MOVIE NIGHT (the inspirations):
Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Burbs, Neighbors, Weeds (TV), The Invaders (TV), Donnie Darko, American Beauty, The Twilight Zone (TV; see episodes The Shelter, The Monsters are Due on Maple Street)
