Bully Pulpit Games Announces Pre-order of the Fiasco Companion
Supplement to the popular game Fiasco now available for pre-release purchase
Bully Pulpit Games is happy to announce the upcoming release of the Fiasco Companion, written by Jason Morningstar and Steve Segedy. Pre-orders for the book begin June 1st. The book will be released on June 22nd and available at the Origins Game Fair.
The Fiasco Companion is a supplement for the award-winning game Fiasco, a game inspired by cinematic tales of small time capers gone disastrously wrong. Fiasco won the 2009 Ennie Judge’s Spotlight Award and has been nominated for the 2010 Origins Award for Best RPG.
Fiasco is particularly known for its Playset mechanic, a list of lists that provide setting and plot material to spark the imaginations of the players and start the game with a bang. Bully Pulpit Games welcomes fan-made Playsets, and to date over fifty Playsets have been written, covering a wide variety of genres and situations.
The long-anticipated Fiasco Companion includes in-depth discussion of common pitfalls and solid techniques for making Fiasco games excellent as well as advice for writing your own Playsets and hacking the rules. In addition, the Companion features exciting rules variants, new Tilt and Aftermath tables and four new Playsets. The book also features a foreword by Wil Wheaton and interviews with an enthusiastic and growing cohort who are already taking the game into the classroom, the writer’s room, and up on stage.
“We are especially excited about the release of the Companion because we’ve been working closely with our friends at Janus Design to publish the Italian translation simultaneously with the English version.” said Segedy.
