Secure big numbers of tweens or teens with a real-life video game event where they are the heroes! Live Action Roleplaying (LARPing) games allow for a one-of-a-kind opportunity that youth can’t get anywhere else. These game-based events are a unique combination of scavenger hunt, escape room, and flag tag. With the help of high-interest themes like zombie apocalypse, Harry Potter, or dinosaur disaster, players complete a variety of challenges while avoiding (literally running from!) a villain in order to finish the adventure first. Get an in-depth look at this revolutionary event type along with a step-by-step how-to guide. We will finish the workshop by playing a mini-version of a zombie-themed game in teams of 10.
