Fiasco playset: GenCon

After I recovered from the sleep deprivation and mild insanity that always results from attending GenCon, it occured to me that GenCon would make a perfect playset. Think about it, tons of nerds with no sleep, lots of booze and/or caffeine, and easily-provoked nerd rage are just a fiasco waiting to happen. So here for your Fiasco enjoyment is GenCon: The Worst Four Days In Gaming.

Big thanks to Travis Farber and Nick Frankenhauser for helping me playtest it. And thanks to Jason Morningstar for giving me excellent advice that helped me make this as terrible and awful as it could possibly be.

Just had to say that this is awesome. I'm not sure I would play this playset (because I've lived it) but it had me laughing while reading it.

Just wanted to tell you that my friends and I used this for our very first Fiasco game and we had a blast! This play set was delightful and perfect for our group. We're definitely playing this again!

You rock!

We played this playset via Skype for a short while. We didn't get to finish it, but what we had going had us in stitches. It captures Gen Con so well. :-)
