“At the end of the tour
When the road disappears
If there's any more people around
When the tour runs aground
And if you're still around
Then we'll meet at the end of the tour”

This is a brief overview that lays out the basic of setting up and playing a game of Ribbon Drive. 

Recommended number of players: 3-5, Play time 3-6 hours on average

Ribbon Drive is a 'GMless' game, you don't need a Dungeon Master or Game Master setting up the rules and the world. 

We recommend picking up a copy of the rules from Buried without Ceremony. They have copies available as PDF and physical books. Try your friendly local games store. If they carry role playing games they probably carry Fiasco.

In addition to players Ribbon Drive only requires a handful of components:

1) Rulebook 

2) Mixes (1 per player, 45-70 minutes each)

3) Index Cards/Paper

5) Writing Utensils
