Can you play Fiasco online?

Looks like you can, and yes, it also looks beautiful.
(Read the update at the bottom!)

This, above, is a Fiasco table/setup as built in the new version of Google Docs Drawing. Pretty, huh?

The background has been kindly supplied by the ever nice Jason Morningstar, author of the game, and can be downloaded from the Bully Pulpit (Jason’s publishing label) website here. Drawing a table like this only takes a few minutes, and you can create an empty template and duplicate it indefinitely to play again. The “dice” are not rollable, just copied and moved around on the “table”, but that’s more than enough.

Now start that google hangout (with Extras you can use the gdoc directly in the hangout!), skype, teamspeak, or other conferencing tool of your choice, and you’re good to go.

UPDATE
It seems I forgot to edit this post, but you can easily create your game of online Fiasco, now, thanks to the Google Docs Templates.
Just go to the Fiasco Table Template and click the “Use this template” button. Enjoy!

      I need to flag this more clearly, but my original table also has been available in the Templates for a long time.

      Your dotted dice look very good, btw but I’m unclear on one bit… why only ones and twos? Am I missing something?

        They were easy to make. The point is not to actually “roll” them. I figured a person could just type the numbers in.

        • renatoram says:

          Ah, understood. Let me suggest, then, creating one for all the die faces, in both colors, so that people can simply copy/paste the whole “die” instead of fiddling with the dots🙂
