Fiasco: Star Wars Edition
A game about powerful ambition and poor impulse control. A game of Fiasco begins with The Setup -- a group activity where you and your friends create a potent and unstable set of circumstances. You choose a Playset, which fixes the game in a particular time and place -- a contemporary southern town, maybe, or the old west. Using a pile of dice, you create an interconnected circle of Relationships and Details pulled from the Playset. Once you’ve created a situation poised on the brink of juicy disaster, you define characters based on your choices.
