My eldest child and her friends went to the big city the other day to do some shopping and just hanging around together. Sort of like a reunion for them since they haven’t hung around together since their high school days. It was good to see.

Upon her arrival home she presented me with The Fiasco Companion. The second book in Fiasco Role Playing Game.

It’s a lovely book! Expanding on ideas of the core rulebook. Though, it’s not a campaign style of game and only meant to played out in a session. It’s a storytelling game about ordinary people trying to do extra-ordinary things. It’s a Cohen Brothers movie on paper basically; with inspiration such as Fargo, Blood Simple, and Burn After Reading.

It’s really not my style of gaming, but I’m willing to give it a shot.

A gift from my eldest child!

Max dropped down from the balcony and landed on the ground as graceful as a cat. He stood up and straighten his tie before fishing out a pack of smokes out of his pocket.
Music drifted out from a building nearby, a catch retro sound mixed with electronica and a reggae-ish style.
“Groovy,” he said to himself.
There was a party going on and it was just what he needed to put a cap on an otherwise strange evening…

Played 8 times.
"Who can I turn to and where can I stay?
I heard a place is open all night and all day
There’s a place you can go where the cops don’t know
You can act real wild they don’t treat you like a child."
