I made an adaptation of RPG for Fiasco, it was very good.

Fiasco seems really fun but I don´t think my group will like it. It needs too much creativity to be any fun.

Fiasco is cool, I found interesting the dynamics of their game.

Letters from Whitechapel has a certain reputation with the people of North America but found someone near me who has the game.

Yay, that’s enough to earn a treasure chest award! 🙂

Both interesting games. I’m a fan of Scotland Yard as a lightweight game, so it would be nice to try out the little extras that Letters from Whitechapel provide.

Both of these games look like a lot of fun. I was immediately drawn to Whitechapel, which is the kind of game I tend to enjoy thematically (dark, investigative, and with a lot of atmosphere). What took me by surprise is that I think of the two Fiasco is actually even more appealing, though I don’t usually go for those kinds of games and didn’t think it would be my cup of tea. I’m definitely going to look into these two games in more detail and hopefully get to play one or both of them in the New Year.

I am not really a fan of deduction games but my wife loves’em. And having a group against one person sounds interesting instead of one on one like Mr. Jack. Letters from Whitechapelwill be in my radar.

Got Fiasco shortly after it came out…and still haven’t played it. The reports of “play it with the right group!” seem to be well-founded because my game group simply won’t play it. Based on that, I guess it’s good that I haven’t played it yet.

These are two excellent games! They are also very different. Letters from White Chapel can be played with quite a varied group of folks, while Fiasco requires a good group of RPG fans (who love to create and act out a story). They are both very replayable, and remain near the top of the pile.

Yay Me!

Both excellent games. Whitechapel replaces a lot of the “hide and seek” games like Fury of Dracula and Scotland Yard.

Fiasco is a party game that meets an RPG. Of course, quality of play depends on how willing the participants are willing to get into the story.
