I just got Fiasco, and came straight to BGG to look read more about how the game works and a few session reports. However, BGG doesn't seem to have any entry for the base set -- just the expansions. And all the expansions show a link to "Fiasco" -- but the game they link to isn't the storytelling game at all, it's an Italian trick-taking game. Where is the base game, and why aren't there any links to it?

the data structure on RPGG is different

there is the RPG entry --- Fiasco ... added to RPGG in Dec 2009

linked to the RPG are 240 RPG Items

these RPG Items are correctly listed on the RPGG domain

Fiasco '10 Playset Anthology Vol. 1
Fiasco '11 Playset Anthology Vol. 2
Fiasco '12 Playset Anthology Vol. 3



these Game entries are listed on the wrong domain

Thanks for clearing that up. It still seems like a crazy way to set up the system though -- if the expansions belong on the boardgame side, how can the base set not belong here too? Also, more to the point, is the wall between the two sites really so high that you can't at least put up a shell entry here with a pointer to the RPG side? Or if the expansions are going to be here, why can't they at least have a pointer to the RPG entry?

these entries (you said expansions) don't belong on the BGG domain
... they were submitted and approved on BGG in error

Fiasco is a Role Playing Game (RPG)
going back to 2009, it has never been listed as a Board Game
I have never seen any user say the products belong on BGG

again, the RPGG data structure is different
RPGG has RPG entries, this is not a product --it's a rules set folder
all products published for the RPG are called RPG Items

examples:
Dungeons & Dragons (3.5 Edition)
for 1st party products, there are over 429 linked RPG Items

d20 System / OGL Product (D&D 3.5 Compatible)
for 3rd party products, there are over 2600 linked RPG Items

the linked RPG Items can have multiple versions
example: Player's Handbook (D&D 3.5e), which has 12 linked versions

different RPG Items have one or more linked Categories, there are eleven to choose from
