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!
