Joke! is a rules-light satire game based in an American high school setting. Characters start with a written history, then have eight "Stats" (Muscle, Agility, Smarts, Brains, Will, Meta, Looks, and Luck) that are randomly generated with a "Numeric" ranging from 1-6. Characters also select "5 or 6" Skills, probably based on their best Stats, and note down their Numeric. Characters also have a few other data scores like Hit Points. The action resolution system (which includes combat) uses a d6 roll against a Skill or Stat. During play, characters gain Credits which can be used to improve Skills or Stats.
