Microscopic PNP

Grow genes into cells into organisms faster than your opponents




This is the Print-and-Play version

(See the physical version)

Welcome to a world invisible to the naked eye, where cells evolve and compete to grow into the biggest, strongest, and fastest living organisms.

You will start off small and slow and weak. Collect enough genes to begin laying down cells, then choose which adaptations to focus on and which organisms will give you the best edge.

As you grow, you will need to make sacrifices to get to the next level, but everything ramps up as you race to the end, claiming the most organisms to win.


Microscopic is a race to grow Genes into Cells into Organisms faster than your opponents.

Cards have multiple uses:

  • Play a card face down to turn it into a Gene. Genes are the currency for buying Cells.
  • Play a card face up to turn it into a Cell, which often have bonuses. Cells are also the currency for buying Organisms, which have even better bonuses.

Take turns playing cards from your hand, then drawing, then discarding down to your hand limit. The first player to claim three Organisms wins the game!
