Larp House Presents: A Crow Funeral (PBS edition)

TPT Twin Cities PBS logo

This special run of the game is a exhibition game that will be filmed by Twin Cities PBS as part of a segment they are doing on Larp House. All participants must consent to being filmed and interviewed.

A fellow crow has died and we will gather to mourn their passing, but more importantly to understand why they died. Not in a metaphysical way, but in a practical way – what killed this creature and how can we ensure it won’t kill us as well? We are crows and this is the crow way.

What

A Crow Funeral, a live-action game about arguments, empathy, and corvids for 2 or more players

Designed by Tim Hutchings
Organized by Katherine Shane and Tom Fendt

When

1 October 2019, from 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm (including interviews)

Where

A private residence in Richfield, Minnesota. Details will be provided to participants.

Registration

If you are interested in playing, please fill out our A Crow Funeral registration form ASAP.  We’ll let you know if you are in the larp as soon as we can.

We probably only need a few players for this.

About the game

Weather permitting, we’ll be playing outside in natural light.

You play opinionated crows! There’s a simple mechanic involving hand contact. The game is only three pages long and you can read the whole text at Golden Cobra.

We expect the game to run from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm with interviews afterward to take about an hour.

If time permits we may stage some scenes from Boundary Waters too. If you have played that game previously we’d especially love to have you. If you want to do that, bring a change of clothes to look “outdoorsy”.

A light vegan meal will be provided at 5:00 pm and we’ll encourage you to arrive then.

Costuming

You’re a crow; wear all black. Look sharp and please don’t wear clothing that would be unsuitable for TV.

If you can bring a water bottle and a folding chair, that would be useful.
