Fiasco Companion: A Friend To Help You Hide The Body
Personally, I found this section a very solid discussion on what makes for good play at the table. A number of these techniques I had in my toolbox, from other improv style games that I have played. For those that are not as comfortable with storytelling style games, this is a good section to get some solid advice.
I was most intrigued by the alternative orders of play, and will be looking to put them into play in the near future. This section focuses on how to run Fiasco. It starts with a section about Facilitating Fiasco; having one player facilitate the game, by leading the group through the order of play. There is a good discussion about the proper sizing of a Fiasco game, and the challenges of when there are too few and too many players at the table.
The section goes on to talk about how to set up materials for running Fiasco; coming up with a kit of pens, index cards, etc to help run your game.
Finally, this section concludes with discussions on running Fiasco at conventions and via the Internet, discussing the nuances of how Fiasco runs in both of these arenas. Personally, I really connected to the Facilitating section, as I have been performing this role in the games that I have played.
I also liked the discussion on the sizing of the game. I had a feeling there was an optimal number for playing the game, and it was confirmed in this section sorry read the book to find out the optimal size. I am also going to be setting up my own Fiasco kit for future games. This section is the ultimate instructional manual for how to create a Playset. Playsets are the settings that are played in Fiasco, and are made up of Relationships, Needs, Objects, and Locations.
Review: Fiasco Companion — Critical Hits
A good playset is the foundation to a great Fiasco game. This chapter provides sections on how to create each of the major parts of a playset, and goes into depth on how each of the components works.
With each of the major parts covered there are some advance notes, and then finally instructions on how to publish your killer playset so that you can share it with the world. If the Fiasco Companion was only this chapter, it would be worth every penny.

This chapter is pure gold, and the advice that it provides opened my eyes about the importance of what goes into a playset, and more importantly what not to put into a playset. After reading this chapter, I became aware that the construction of a playset is not just a random list of crazy objects thrown together, but rather there is a real purpose to what elements go into a playset.
This chapter goes into hacking the game and taking it past the established rules by introducing a few optional elements. There are rules for Stunt Dice that trigger a special effect in-game. There are rules for how to create a custom Tilt Table and custom Aftermath tables, and the effects of what happens when you do so. I found this section fascinating. I will at some point put Stunt Dice into an upcoming session.
I had not really thought about how the customization of the Tilt and Aftermath could dramatically effect the play of the game. Photos available on request. Seller Inventory More information about this seller Contact this seller 1. All pictures are stock photos.
