Fiasco IRL  - 
 
Beyond the fact that it has "fiasco" right in the title...this just sounds like part of a poorly-conceived plan falling apart in Act 2.
For the second time in three years, one man's urine is forcing the city of Portland, Ore., to drain millions of gallons of treated water currently stored in an open reservoir. The first time...

Is there anything out there that would use Portlandia as a reference?

This is total win.
Say you're a video game developer. You get one of those annoying e-mail blasts from some corporate marketing firm that wants you to pay them for their vague services.

Make sure to read the article. ;-)
On April Fool's day, NPR had an extremely simple joke that turned out to be an incredibly effective demonstration of how many commenters on Facebook actually read the articles they comment on.

This Kickstarter is super-fantastic! Accessories to make board games blind-accessible!

Take a look and reshare it, if you're so inclined! :-)

So, there was an RPG.net thread asking about "found footage" RPGs, and I realized that Fiasco maps perfectly onto the structure of a found footage movie! Use a playset like Home Invasion or The Beast of Sucker Creek, throw in Confessional Stunt Dice, and then play each scene as a separate video entry.

It's really funny, because I hadn't made the connection until now. The setup of a found footage-style movie actually explains the structure of Fiasco in a pretty organic way, especially the way that framing switches between characters.

Exploiting the system to pay your electric bill? I think this is the best #WhatIf  yet. Spoiler alert: it unfortunately doesn't involve blowing anything up.

This looks really neat! I've done a good bit of PbP gaming (it's how I started, in a way!), and this should be a good panel. Great guests!

I stumbled across this Fiasco AP; I love the versatility you can bring to a Fiasco game. It's not all wacky hijinks! This reads just like a tragic wuxia story.

Thanks for sharing. It sounded like a great story.

Just watched the first couple episodes of Fringe. Now I'm pondering how I'd tweak the standard MotW formula to handle a mystery like that.

There was no Kick Some Ass evident in the mysteries; the point was to figure out what was going on, then contain the problem before it could spread. There wasn't actually a monster to kill. Naturally, there was plenty of Investigate A Mystery, and we had techno-flavored Use Magic of a sort.

Any thoughts? Michael, I know you briefly touched on this, and I'm sure that X-Files (if not Fringe itself) was definitely a style of game you had in mind, as a type of mystery to run.

Love it! Also, as I'm watching the show and thinking of it in MotW terms, I'm starting to parse out what playbook everyone's using.

It's pretty dead-on obvious that Walter is the Expert, down to the Dark Past move. :-D And I'm pretty sure Olivia is the Professional. At this point in the show, I can't tell what Peter is, though...he doesn't seem mundane enough to be a mundane.

I love Pegasus. They have a nice selection of various games (including indie games), and the staff is great. I love browsing around, and dropping in to geek out about something with the guy at the register.

Simply...fantastic. Walking in there was mildly breathtaking, and the staff is quite friendly. And...well...games from floor to ceiling, and the stock is ridiculously varietized! No trouble finding what I wanted at all!
