New Gosh Darn Fiasco Episode: The Last Heist!

Gosh Darn Fiasco 19Good morning everyone! Welcome to Episode 19 of Gosh Darn Fiasco: The Mnemonic Gang, with Ben ColemanLewis SequieraRichard Malena, and (of course) Angela Webber! If you’re new to our bi-weekly podcast: we get funny and brilliant people together and play Fiasco from Bully Pulpit Games. Hijinks and hilarity (usually) ensue!

It’s “The Last Heist!” Our gang of youngsters has an expert plan to steal the new Pokémon game and make tons of money. What could get in their way? Will it be their English teacher, obsessed with Shakespeare (the rapper)? The changing landscape of Hot Topic? Or maybe their “lackey”—the weird 35-year-old man who hangs out with this band of youth criminals and has a mysterious, skeleton-filled past? And do you need a mnemonic to remember that? Find out in this very funny episode featuring luminaries from the Portland comedy scene!

Are you hooked yet? Great! Don’t miss another episode: you can listen via iTunes, subscribe, follow Gosh Darn Fiasco on Twitter and Facebook, and even donate.

Thank you for listening, we hope you enjoy it!

We Wrote for Betrayal at the House on the Hill!

Last year the wonderful Mike Selinker at Lone Shark Games reached out to us with an exciting proposition: an expansion—the first in 11 years—for his game Betrayal at the House on the Hill. He asked us to write for Widow’s Walk, which we did, with help from Richard Malena (our partner in tour, games, and his show Atomic Game Theory)! Ours is a very special haunt where you can betray your friends . . . with cats. No more spoilers, but we’re very proud.

Betrayal at the House on the Hill

The whole expansion is amazing. There are new rooms, new omens, and a lot of great content by amazing contributors like Zoë Quinn (Depression Quest), Pendleton Ward (Adventure Time), Max Temkin and Eli Halpern (Cards Against Humanity), Anita Sarkeesian (Feminist Frequency), and more!

It was a real treat to get in on helping to design (and playtest, a little!) this game, and it’s been hard keeping the secret for so long . . .

But now you can finally get Betrayal at the House On the Hill: Widow’s Walk—with a haunt by Angela Webber (that’s me!) and Richard Malena—at your friendly local game store or on Amazon! Let us know if you play our haunt, I want to know what you name your cat!
