Secret Histories is a game in which you and your friends and go on a historical walking tour of your neighborhood, learning hidden facts that have never been discovered — because they’re made up on the spot.

It's a collaborative storytelling game that inspires you to look at the world around you in a new way, creating unique stories that tie friends and places together.

To play, you just need 3-6 players, comfortable shoes, something to take notes with, and an interesting place to go exploring.

See the abbreviated rules (PDF) to quickly get up to speed on how to play. (Expanded game guide to come at a later date.)

Secret Histories was an Official Selection for IndieCade 2017.
