Learn to create, develop, and refine a Live Action RolePlaying game in a fun, competitive environment. No experience needed, just an open mind and a cooperative attitude.
Hosted in partnership with LARP House ( http://larphouse.org/ ), this event will be coordinated by Jon Cole.
"Game Chef ( http://game-chef.com/ )is an annual role-playing game design competition, where participants have one week to create a game. It is the Grand Prix of game design competitions, winners of this event have routinely published profitable games. This year the competition is being held June 13-21st. To kick it off the LARP House is hosting a LARP Jam.
LARP Jam is a round-robin LARP design workshop. Players make LARPs in small groups and trade them. Each LARP is expanded on by each subsequent group, becoming stronger as it comes into contact with more designers. In a matter of hours people with no LARP design experience can create awesome, fully-playable LARPs!
LARP Jam is the brain child of Jon Cole in 2014. During the first run of the event, three participants created 'Still Life', a LARP that won that year's Golden Cobra award for the LARP the judges were most excited to play.
Even if you can't attend this LARP Jam, you are encouraged to design something for Game Chef and plan to attend a future Jam."
