Ten year-old Canadian web celebrity “Treasure” Chet Forest is about to host a special Valentine’s Day dinner for all of his fans, live-cast from his mother’s opulent home in Toronto. However, Chet’s vengeful father has taken steps to ensure that the irascible young star does not survive the party, and two teams of hitmen have descended upon the Forest home: a duo of pros with dozens of killings under their belts, and a pair of rank novices who are struggling to establish a reputation. As the night draws on, this Valentine’s Day bash steadily devolves into a complete Fiasco as the two teams vie to be the ones who put Treasure six feet under. Can they collect the contract without arousing suspicion, or will they end up taking each other out instead? Listen to find out!

This Fiasco actual play was created using “The Murderists,” one of the three playsets included in Run, Fools, Run!

  • omg, right after I say my favorite thing is you guys all being horrible you give us another Fiasco. marvelous. the fucking. signal. being kept cold. and the title! and everything! just too good I’ve said it before but I still think every one of your Fiascos is filmworthy

    I loved this episode. There were so many amazing points. The cell phones. The description of the comic book shop scene. The whole episode. You guys are hilarious. I await your next episode, patiently.

    Amazing. Hands down one of the best Fiasco games you’ve done. Had me cracking up at every turn.

    Though I do wish you’d all taken a little time to clarify some of the endings for the other characters once you got past the “James and Alex don’t make sense” bit. But “Let’s go to Tim Hortons” was too solid an end not to use, I guess.

  • I didn’t get the Tim Horton’s line! Canadian Starbucks, looks like? my favorite line was when Ryan’s character looked like an optical illusion.

  • Here’s your bad ending for the Black Card Killer(s): Fatbeard got caught doing this hit and took the fall for the oven explosion, but you left your calling card anyway. Now everyone thinks the Black Card Killer has been caught, and that blogger jerk got all the credit for all your former hits (even some of the jailtime). Your reputation at stake, you pull a big job and leave the calling card again, but it backfires. Now everyone thinks you’re copycats, and that you’ve been copycats all along, and now every two-bit gun for hire who wants to make a name for himself is leaving a black business card. Your business and your sense of identity are shattered.

    • Perfect!

      I can’t really put it better than Ryan. Your ending is the one I will remember from now on when I think of this game.

  • I was probably the only one disappointed that there was a horny, old, drunk woman in this episode and it was NOT played by Ryan.

    After listening to this, I FINALLY feel like I understand how you’re supposed to play Fiasco. And damn, did Treasure Chet ever need to die.
