I have a thought and No my head doesn't hurt!

This inspired by the comic line of "Gone with the Blastwave" Dark and humorist, I'm hoping to make a fun game of it, to keep it simple I thought one can use "Fubar" rules and the figures from

Wasteland uber goons, they look very much like the comic

All the figures will be painted the same except for the markings like the comic yellow, blue and red.

This will allow for three players, the terrain board would be Post Apocalyptic city, with a clear city square in the middle and a objective marker located there "Map of the way OUT" first player there wins,

Sounds easy! Mm NO! Now comes the random "Mishap Table" players at the beginning of their turn roll a die or dices to see which of their figures is effected, each figure will need a number marker for dice rolls, then roll on the Mishap Table and apply the roll

D20 Mishap Table;

1. Shot Dead from stray bullet blocks away in another battle.
2. Hungry, sees rabbit spends all movement chasing rabbit to the nearest broad edge.
3. Daydreaming no action or movement this turn.
4. Shot in the Foot, by fellow team member, half movement for the rest of game.
5. I see a way out! spends all movement moving to the player's right.
6. Coffee break! spends movement moving to nearest building.
7. Defective grenade falls from individual and kills individual.
8. He's Cracked, spends rest of game moving off the board to the nearest edge.
9. Do you hear that! hears a radio and spends all movement moving to player's left.
10. Falling Rock, debris falls from building killing individual.
11. Board with nails hit individual in leg reduce movement to half for remainder of game.
12. Magazine falls out no firing this turn.
13. Gas mask failure movement reduce to half for this turn.
14. Steps on mine individual is killed.
15. New orders, spends all movement moving to closest team member to confirm orders.
16. Can we all just get along, Spends all movement moving to closest enemy unit.
17. Stuck in rubble no movement this turn.
18. Falls in to a hole full of rebar and is impaled to death.
19. Wait for reinforcements, no movement during remainder of game.
20. I'll find my own way out, spends all movement moving to the opposite board edge.

Not so easy now, you might be lucky to have anyone left to get the map, but sounds like loads of fun and mishaps, of course one can use the miniatures they already have.

I know this sounds goofy or dumb but what the heck what is gaming if you can't have fun with it.
