Portraits of a rulers. Photos by Ida Benedetto.


MicroμN is an experimental roleplaying game inspired by the numerous uninhabited islands that lie in the waters around New York City, where players became the rulers of their own lands. First starting in person at our headquarters on Governor’s Island, we registered each player and took portraits of them. The game then continued virtually for a month via email, where the rulers would battle it out to take over other islands. The final result was a winning ruler who had conquered all the islands.

Pages from the pamphlet of islands, which was given to the players at the start of the game.
