I find the idea that maxing either stat makes your character essentially unplayable pretty great. Like if you succeed too often you kinda have to eat some honey to reconnect to your essential bearness.

It's pretty great.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

A friend introduced this to me a bit a go. It was a lot of fun as a short, wait-for-stragglers-to-show-up type of game. :)

I've run two games of this so far, both one shots because duh. Kids took a little bit to get into it, but had a lot of fun and mauled the shit outta some cops. Adults played with silly accents, helped each other with flashbacks to come up with the next move while they were stuck, and were hilariously racist against the honey badger.

Don't know how well it'll hold up to repeat games with the same crowd, otherwise A+.
