You Einstein

You Einstein (Me Henry Ford) is a role-playing game in which players take on the roles of famous scientists or industrialists - Albert Einstein, Henry Ford, Charles Darwin, Marie Curie, Alan Turing, etc. and form multi-player expeditions.

Together they explore worlds of ideas or pure natural phenomena - light, gravity, electricity, chaos, etc. E.g. a group of characters could choose to explore a world where everything about the world is light and determined by light's properties. In these worlds, the "˜monsters" of typical role-playing games (RPGs) are replaced by scientific problems of the past, present, and future that the parties try to vanquish/solve (some may be unsolvable).

Each scientist character-type (Einstein, Darwin, Curie, etc.) has its own intellectual and emotional strengths and weaknesses that become the RPG equivalents of "˜life points," "weapons," and "magic" that can be used to explore the worlds and battle/solve problems.
