I just bought this game Microscope
and I'm dying to play it. With someone, anyone. Anyone here up for it?
Microscope is about exploring a piece of world history. You start off just saying "This is about the rise and fall of a great empire" and then dig into the middle, between the rise and fall. You know the end from the beginning, but you'll keep exploring what's in the middle, and be surprised as another player suddenly adds a new period in between the two you saw as right after another. The blurb from the game's site is so good, you should just follow that link to the story games thread. Right under the picture of the book.
As I said, I have the rules (pdf only) and I'll gladly teach enough to play, but I guess if some of you have it too, or even have played it, that's great. It's for 2-5 players techically, but not recommended on 2 or 5, so I guess 3-4? Anyone?
