Fiasco by Skype? September 19, 2012 5:37 PM   Subscribe

Any MeFites want to start up some Skype-based games of Fiasco?

Inspired by this post, I bought the Fiasco game and ... my god ... I can't wait to play this with a variety of people. It strikes me as perfectly suited to multi-person Skype (or ooVoo, whatever) video chat. Is anybody here doing this? Is anybody interested? Is this the place to ask?

Is this the place to ask?

Sure thing, but you might also want to pop over to MefightClub and ask, too. We have members playing traditional D&D over the net, and lots of traditional board and tabletop game enthusiasts (including the author of this site) who might be keen to join in!

Ooh! I've been wanting to try Fiasco. I'd totally be up for this.

I've only played it once, but holy crap do I love that game. Yes. Yes, I would totally love to do this.

Fiasco is literally the best thing ever.

I've actually been keeping tabs on Fiasco's slow burbling up into the collective conciousness, it's essentially an RPG that hits up the improv/storytelling elements to the max so it has a broad cultural appeal to the theatre dorks and cartoonists I follow.

To whet everyone's appetites: A whole bunch of nifty-sounding downloadable Fiasco playsets. Everything on that page is free, I think.

The Zoo looks pretty appealing to me, though I'm also kind of into the idea of playing Regina's Wedding, which is in The Fiasco Companion.

One of the Fiasco Playsets is Alpha Complex.

I've done it once and it worked well.

I've never played, but would love to try.

I would be interested in this - but time zones might bork it.

Seems like this would work as a G+ Hangout, too.

I would be totally down for this-- I have been wanting to try this game for a couple of years and can't find any takers among my friends.

Late to the party but I would be interested. Difficulty level: I've never done Skype. (I have played Fiasco, though.)

This comment is so that I can follow this thread.

Computer, make it so.

I also have never done Skype, but have played Fiasco - count me in for compatible times! I have the book and companion, as well, and am willing to facilitate a group in my timezone.
