Conclave: Now on Kickstarter

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!

Larp House Presents: Sing Your Heart Out

Who thought that a singing competition was a good idea for a nonprofit fundraiser? Now six nonprofit coworkers with a casual singing group have just one week to turn their setlist into something professional. They will have to wow the judges with their vocal talents if they can hope to land the multi-million dollar grant that will keep the doors open on their community organization. Tensions will mount, drama will ensue, and everyone will sing to express their true feelings!

What

Sing Your Heart Out is a live-action game for five players about a singing group composed of very dramatic people. Think Glee, Pitch Perfect, Fame, and A Chorus Line.

Designed by Benjamin Rosenbaum and Jamey Harvey
Organized by Jon Cole and Peregrin Winkle

The Lazy Guide to Larping

This weekend we have a guest post from Alex Roberts! When you think of live-action roleplaying, you might think of foam-padded weapons, vampire politics, or an evening of mystery with elaborate costumes. Those are well-known and popular styles of larp for a reason ? they?re a ton of fun! I encourage you to learn more about established forms of larp, and track down a local event! But what if, like me, you find a long-running game with elaborate setup more ?
