What is … Larp

If you want to know theoretically what larp is about, take twenty minutes and listen to Johanna Koljonen’s talk on the Nordic Larp tradition. The first ten minutes deal with video games, tabletop role-playing games (Dungeons & Dragons and the fan involvement), and larp as something which rose from these games independently across countries and even the Iron Curtain.

Johanna’s comparison of larp to a birthday party is ingenious!
