Since FUDGE isn't a factor, Zeb's is out because it was never completed. Wink
I'm not overly fond of Zeb's Guide...nor do I have any qualms stating why. Tongue out

./rolls intuition

I suspect you play Zeb's behind closed doors in a dimly lit room with paper dice.... Foot in mouth

People playing with paper dice are usually in prison- dice are banned as gambling impliments, inmates make them out of paper. 
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

Ah, so it wasn't an intuition roll, rather an institution roll.

I still use AD/KH and mix in content from Zeb's - skills and equipment usually. It's been pretty easy converting the latter to the former.

I suppose if I was in prison I would simply play Traveller as wadding up wet toilet papper to make a cube is the easiest die to make.

A 2d6 system would be easy enough to fudge together for fantasy as well. The TSR box sets proved that you dont need a lot of rules to run a fun game ie B/X and Star Frontiers

I have been using a modified Top Secret SI ruleset with modifications to get it closer to the original AD rules. I like the "rolw percentile and the ten digit is damage and the ones is location" system TS uses.
