With Microscope you can travel throughout a timeline and explore an epic history of your own creation, hundreds or thousands of years long, all in one session. The secret is you don’t play the game in chronological order: your group defies the limits of time and space – jumping backward or forward to explore the parts of the history that interest you!
This week we review the history-twisting game Microscope, discuss our thoughts on the game, and catch up with designer Ben Robbins on how the game was put together.
