Fiasco! Game of Thrones Season 8

The Nerds are sick of waiting for Game of Thrones Season 8 so we are doing our own! And what better way to do it than with Fiasco!

If you are new to Fiasco, FIASCO is an award-winning, GM-less game for 3-5 players, designed to be played in a few hours with six-sided dice and no preparation. During a game you will engineer and play out stupid, disastrous situations, usually at the intersection of greed, fear, and lust. It’s like making your own Coen brothers movie, in about the same amount of time it’d take to watch one.

No way those dudes at HBO come up with an ending as wild as this one!

Who survives? Who gets the throne? Who knows! It’s Fiasco!
