Larp House members and local larp designers Kelley Vanda and Jon Cole have been prominently mentioned in this article in The Guardian about women designing games about reproductive rights.
Meg talks about her first time larping at our recent Larp House Presents: The Hirelings!
The internationally award-nominated ’70s feminism larp The Abortionists by our own Jon Cole and Kelley Vanda is now available for download.
The latest game in the War Birds series, Rosenstrasse is an immersive freeform tabletop game in the scenario festival tradition. Starting in 1933 Berlin, it explores marriages between Jewish and non-Jewish Germans during the rise of Nazism, culminating in the 1943 Rosenstraße protest. Rosenstrasse has been playtested by historians and Holocaust educators, has been played to critical acclaim at game festivals, and is now being made available as a ready-to-play publication. Please take a look at this important title!
Conclave is a live-action game of political scheming between 13th-century Cardinals designed by Willow Palacek. 8 to 27 players take the role of historic characters, literally locked in a room together until they decide who will be the next Pope. It has been a cult favorite of the convention circuit, and now you can get a copy on Kickstarter!

The hubbub of the holidays is behind us and we are pleased to announce our tentative Winter 2019 event schedule! We are still working out the details for each of these, and the lineup is subject to change. Watch this space for future announcements about these events!
We still have room for a couple more submissions. Contact the Creative Director if you have an idea.
The Creative Director is now accepting submissions for first quarter programming. The connecting theme for this season (January to March) will be:
Use of the theme is encouraged (although not mandatory). You may interpret the theme however you like. Is this about resilience in the face of hardship? Encore presentations of popular larps? Whatever inspires you!
We are especially interested in getting submissions from women, LGBTQIA folx, and people of color.
As always, no prior larp organizing experience is necessary. We will connect you with a member of the Education Committee for help with running a great larp.
If you have an idea for an event you would like to run, please fill out our handy event submission form by 21 January. The Creative Director will review the pitches, and will announce a schedule by the end of January.
The General Committee meeting has been rescheduled to 20 October from 12 pm to 2 pm. It will be in Meeting Room A at the Rondo Community Library in St. Paul. We could totally use volunteers for facilitator and notes master. Everyone who has ever attended a Larp House event can vote and is invited to attend.
