Agree on a game theme: "80's Soap Opera with horror elements", "a western game set in a dream world". Brainstorm until you have consensus on a theme. Players give their character traits: 3 positive, 2 negative, 1 neutral. Meanwhile the GM Ruminates. As Play progresses the GM increases the number of dice ("Stakes") rolled representing escalating tension. Starting at 0 and ending at 6. Anything can have traits. A trait is simply something true. Traits applied to an action can come from anywhere. Resolution: To answer questions, ("do they see it?") simply compare applicable traits and infer the meaning. When a player declares an action: roll Fudge Dice equal to the Stakes, add to that the number of applicable positive traits, subtract negative traits. If positive you succeed, negative you fail, 0 -> describe how things escalated add one dice and roll again. Only the one acting rolls. Consequences: Actions can produce negative or positive traits applied to anything. Sequencing: When time needs control, players pass their turn to another player until every character has acted. Concession: A player or a GM can concede a scene at any time. A player must concede if they have accumulated 5 negative traits.
