We've written a typical 5e adventure, but instead of publishing it in a book for one DM to read and run for their group, we've taken the encounters and placed them on cards. The group then divides those cards up among themselves and chooses the encounters that will make up the night's adventure. The encounters are divided into five categories: Combat, Puzzle, Roleplay, Skill Challenge, and Wildcard.
The players then take turns running their chosen encounters for the rest of the group, controlling their character as normal.
Here's a detailed explainer for how the game is played:
