Larp House Presents: Games Within Games

“When you grow suspicious of a person and begin a system of espionage against him, your punishment will be that you find your suspicions true.”

—Elbert Hubbard

Two spies in Cold War Berlin circle each other in a mole-hunt. They betray each other’s trust and struggle with their inner demons.

Games Within Games centers on the fear and anxiety of two people who depend on anonymity and deception to avoid being killed. The two spies have the most to fear from each other. The person who they depend on most is the person whose betrayal would be the most shattering. This scenario is about vulnerable people concealing their weaknesses, and failing.
