Micro Objective - Cardboard Adventures - 50



Play a "micro game" of your choice.


Most often tabletop games have a large number of components. However, a new trend, the "microgame," is challenging designers and players to squeeze the maximum amount of fun from as few components as possible. 

1) Choose and play a microgame. Use our suggested list below, check out Geek Dad's list, or any microgame of your choice. (Remember, micro games usually consist of a few cards and few to no other components.) 

2) Share a photograph of yourself playing the game on Instagram, Twitter, or any other form of social media. Tag your photo with #questscouts and #microgame. (Posting to a public Instagram or Twitter account is best because it let's you connect with us on our Scout Board.)

3) Share a photo of yourself playing the game on Instagram or Twitter with the tag #QuestScouts and #TabletopGames. You can also share your experiences in our Facebook group.

Remember, if you post to a public Instagram or Twitter account your photo will show up on our Scout Board for other Quest Scouts to enjoy and comment on.

4) Comment below and tell us what microgame your played and what you thought of it.
