Well (sob, sob) - the end of the world is nigh. So what are you going to do about it, huh? (Who me?). Yeah, you, the spotty one with the kipper tie who always gets all his homework right.
You're going to travel the galaxy collecting the six artifacts that will give you access to the only remaining planet able to support human life, that's what.
You (and a few mates) take it in turns to travel to planets and answer questions. Get one right and the next player gets a go.
Six artifacts in your pocket? Off you go to the planet Genus II and answer one final question. Get that right and you'll be scoffing lasagna when the big bang comes.
Smart guys have no heart...
