Title: Fiasco, my new best friend
Post by: Charlie_X on March 29, 2010, 04:35:37 AM
Wow. I heard about this on the Pulp Gamer podcast and went from abstractly curious to fixated in the last few hours, getting the preview, then the pdf.

I'm a UK Gamer and was wondering if the print version is available over here. I know Esdevium Games cover distribution in the UK, but am unaware if they stock it, or if I'll need to sneak-print it at work over the next week somehow. I already have a white-board, so I'm planning on using it instaed of post-its like the Gnome Stew guys did.

I've already got a couple of ideas of things to run and weirdly this fits a campaign one of my group ran for us, called "The Day I Shot Your Heart", involving Serbian painkillers expired in the 1980's, a rocket launcher, a fight in a theme park, an asthmatic hitman and a trunk filled with someone else's coke.

So yeah, any word on the print version being in/coming to the UK?
When I've had a playthrough or two and can put my own ideas together, is there any place I can post those?

Oh, also - the white board works great. I like to use index cards or post-its because it creates a built-in set of notes for writing up what happened during the game, but it is a little more resource-intensive and prone to getting drinks spilled on it.

Fair play. If I run this at a friend's, I'll use index cards, but when at the flat, the giant whiteboard will be awesome.

I'll have to check out Leisure Games for the dead tree version. Thanks for the link.
