I had some friends over for a playtest of Microscope last night, and I really enjoyed myself. It's definitely going to be necessary to lay down some ground rules about tone (our game involved a zombie apocalypse caused by kittens with laser beam eyes, and a lesbian starting the First Blesbyterian Church of the All Powerful Shiny, which of course was the disembodied soul of a passive-aggressive Russian saboteur), but it's a perfect system for hashing out stories and fleshing out histories.
