Fiasco

A storygame designed to model the crumbling plans of a group of antiheroes in the style of a Coen Brothers film ("Blood Simple", "Fargo", etc).

Excerpt: 

You'll play ordinary people with powerful ambition and poor impulse control. There will be big dreams and flawed execution. It won't go well for them, to put it mildly, and in the end it will probably collapse into a glorious heap of jealousy, murder, and recrimination. Lives and reputations will be lost, painful wisdom will be gained, and if you are really lucky, your guy just might end up back where he started.
