2017 will be a banner year for LARP (Live Action Role Playing) in America due to the increased prevalence of "blockbuster" style events. A blockbuster LARP means high production values, high player count, and high cost to attend. These are usually a weekend long and at a remarkable location. After College of Wizardry ran a Harry Potter-inspired event at a medieval Polish castle, New World Magischola opened a western version based on original content at the University of Richmond in 2016 and the College of William and Mary in 2017. This year will also see Event Horizon, an original, richly detailed science fiction LARP near the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco; Battleship, a historical LARP taking place aboard the USS New Jersey; Edgeworld, a stylized western town of gunslinging and intrigue; Dragon Thrones, a fantasy epic in the style of A Song of Ice and Fire at Bryn Mawr college; and Starship Selket: Wave One, occurring aboard the SS Lane Victory in San Pedro. See previews and get sneak peeks of these exciting, immersive, and interactive events. Presented by Aaron Vanek (Starship Selket: Wave One).
