Giger- A System

Giger is Sofa's latest homebrew, a system that relies around dice pools and a little faggotry.
* In most rolls, the player rolls a number of Skill dice, represented by white dice. These are abbreviated as SD.
* Similarly, in most rolls, the player rolls a number of Ability dice, represented by black dice. These are abbreviated as AD.
* The player takes one of his SD; he then adds 1 to the number rolled on that dice for each SD and each AD that rolled the same number. This is his Pool Total.
* The player's Pool Total has to beat the difficulty of a task to pass the check.

EXAMPLES:
SD: 2, 3, 4; AD: 4, 4.
Pool Total: 6, because SD 4 + 2 Matching AD.

SD: 2; AD: 1, 2, 4, 4, 4.
Pool Total: 3, because SD 2 + 2 Matching AD. The fact this player rolled three 4s makes no difference to the roll, because he rolledno 4s on his SD.

SD: 5, 5, 5; AD: 1, 1, 2, 3, 4.
Pool Total: 7, because SD 5 + 2 Matching SD.

SD: 3, 3, 6; AD: 3, 3, 3.
Pool Total: 7, because SD 3 + 3 matching AD and 1 matching SD.

(Optional Possibility: Every 1 rolled on an AD also adds 1 to a player's Pool Total?)
