I’ve only played it once and I’d like to play again. Microscope is about zooming in and out across history and making it all up, together. You enter different game modes where you might find yourself roleplaying a character that was different from the character you roleplayed in the last scene, making up new history, clarifying history that someone else made up by supplying details, or deciding that this entire history doesn’t have the concept of gender. Yeah, that was me.
I think this group would really like it.
The one time I played it, we were in a google hangout, and it was also my first time using this amazing tree-mapping software: https://gingkoapp.com
