When you know something's coming but you don't know what, there's only one thing to do: poke everything dangerous and see what lashes back out.

Originally I had a page planned dedicated entirely to Tony's grandstanding "that man is playing Galaga" bit so he could plant the hacking device, buuuuut somehow it didn't strike me as entirely feasible that a Sleight of Hand check from him would be able to beat the Perception check of everyone in the room unless they all rolled comically low, which... is possible, but it felt like it'd take too much focus.

Then I remembered that I'd already establish Tony could hack things using JARVIS without an interface, so I pivoted. The hacking device was going to be a red herring, something ridiculously basic like sticky tack masquerading as something important to keep the SHIELD techies busy and distracted... and then I figured there was no reason they wouldn't just throw Tony in a cell while they figured it out.

So I threw it out entirely. XD

Never forget bonuses for good roleplaying! Pretty sure that is a standard "thing" in most of the tabletop RPGs I've played, but I could be mistaken.

Anyway, if it is, then that entire scene is probably worth anywhere from +5 to +10 on the roll. Which is a lot in most systems.

You could also spin it as Fury wanting to be caught, because he may not like where SHIELD is going with its tesseract research.
