Happy #TowelDay !

What if you wanted to run a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy game with lots of gonzo slapstick sci-fi?

FAE seems like a good starting point, although I could imagine a variety of wonky setups working (Aspects as skills for example).

Are there any rules tweaks or configurations you think would help aid the comedy sci-fi vibe of the series come through in play?

I wonder about some sort of absurdity mechanic for encouraging or requiring crazy complications in scenes. Maybe instead of a Trouble aspect each character has an Absurdity Aspect? "The President of The Universe is by definition the least qualified person for the job" would be a good fit for Zaphod, for example.

How do you think a comedy based game like this should work?
