You are at the Large Hadron Collider one Friday when calamity strikes. Pick a role. Roll D6 for Causal Points (CPs), the GM rolls for (or invents) the calamity & its cause. Only you can save the world.

Players should understand the causation to resolve the calamity. Reward amusing / plausible reasoning with CPs.

Spend CPs to effect the world or roll a D6 test. Add 1 to your roll if using your skill. Other players may pay CPs on your behalf. Fall unconscious when your CPs equal a negative of your starting CP.

Track combined group criticals (successes & failures) & when they reach 6, the calamity escalates.

==============================
1 	        Critical Failure: Fail & lose 1 CP
2 & 3	Failure: Subtract 1 from rerolls
4 & 5	Success
6	        Critical Success: Gain 1 CP

It’s a bad pun - but a replayable game.
