Dwa.Trois - Larp
Dwa.trois is a mini-larp for four players in a car on the road, driven by the game master. Four burglars fleeing from a crime scene to the airport dealing with the fact the stuff didn’t work out as planned.
The morning after a party is always a surprise - a splitting headache is soon forgotten when one wakes up all alone in a dark room. Or are you alone after all? Who are the other people present, why on earth are you here, and, -most of all- what now? This is a horror larp for eight people with a twist, played entirely in the dark.
Note: Do not signup for this game if you have a) A severe latex allergy (there are latex props in the game and its dark, so you will most likely not find out about them until you touch them.) b) Severe anxiety over issues such as darkness, enclosed spaces or being touched.
Siege Mentality II
The Zombie apocalypse has come! No-one knows how it started, or where, or why. But the dead have risen, and are hungry for the brains of the living. A small group of survivors have found themselves trapped in a room, with only each other for company, and a horde of walking corpses outside. And now the real battle for survival begins - with each other. A two hour freeform minilarp for up to 10 players.
Ten good-hearted people waiting in line at the social services office. An ultraminimalist two-hour Dogma larp done in the style of film director Aki Kaurismäki, for up to 15 players. It’s not your fault that things have not gone so well for you in life,
