Wil Wheaton and friends play Fiasco

I’ve been meaning to review the game Fiasco, but Wil Wheaton has provided something much better: video of an actual game of Fiasco played with actor Alison Haislip, screenwriter John Rogers, and author Bonnie Burton, part of Wheaton’s Tabletop series. For those not already familiar with the game, Fiasco combines improvisation, collaborative storytelling, and randomly generated story elements to produce a Coen brothers-esque story about people with “powerful ambition and poor impulse control.” The game itself is available from Bully Pulpit Games.

Wil Wheaton on Libraries

“Libraries are constantly under attack from people who fear knowledge, politicians who think guns are more important than books, and people who want to ensure that multi-millionaires pocket even more money. As an author, father, and a reader, I beg you: please support your local libraries in any way you can, and if you enjoy reading, take a moment to thank a librarian.”

Wil Wheaton writes about why librarians are awesome.
