Risus is a very barebones game system, very, very rules light. I picked it up because I wanted something quick and easy with a minimum of crunch. It proved to be pretty fun, and after a session or two, I gave the companion a look over. It has helped me immensely as an extravagent source of inspiration! It details multiple ways of utilising the rules and provides a good number of examples for characters, situations and the potential combinations of the two. It has opened my mind up to many different interpretations of an incoming conflict and provided good advice for keeping the game fun. Laced with some cheekiness and stick-figures everywhere, I highly recommend it!

Risus is literally the best game system that I have ever encountered. I wish that everyone I played with was a good enough role-player to handle it! I am currently running an adaptation of Victory Games' "The Man With the Golden Gun" in Risus and it is awesome! The rules are only 4 pages long and come free, but the companion is definitely worth the price!

I have not often read such an amusing and at the same time helpful collection of Articles on roleplaying in general. A lot of the material here can be used completely independently from Risus so even if you are not playing Risus give this book a chance it is worth it. Apparently there will be a new version sometime in the future which "updates" it to Risus 2 but there is no need to wait as a) the content is vers useful as is and b) you will get the new version automatically anyway.

There is so much useful material which I've used with Risus and with other games and even with various day-to-day existence - that I don't know where to begin. There's even enough "How to survive and prosper through taking life with tongue-in-cheek" that will fit most philosophies. Heck, I'm Mormon and Risus-think works for me! That's not even counting the sheer awesomeness of Stick Figure Therapy. Since this is a gaming review, I assure you that Risus and its Companion can significantly improve your RPGaming experience, though the banana pumpkin bread alone is worth the purchase price.
