YouTube Friday: Impromptu LARP

This might be a little deceiving due to production level and what's going on, but it's actually really amazing. In this video, a group of kids (not sure the age group) are presented with the opportunity to try LARPing and are not turned off. None of the common stereotypes are preventing them from taking the opportunity to take some shots on their friends, and as the person who shot the video said, he was well aware that they were LARPing.

This is something that's special about low level rules games like Dag, Bel, and Amt. It's so easy to learn the rules that people can be playing after a minute of explanation. And when given opportunities like this, you can get people to LARP without having to talk about hit points or making them dress up. Bravo to the group that arranged this.


PS: If you know what group did this, post in the comments, as I'd like to give credit where credit's due.
