Adventure Party #25 – LARPS: The Series Cast and Crew

Play

In this meeting of the Adventure Party we talk with Director Julian Stamboulieh, Actor Scott Humphrey, and Producer Benjamin Warner from the Geek & Sundry’s LARPS: The Series. These are but a few of the cast and crew of this amazingly funny and sometimes touching show about a group of people who are a part of a Live Action Role Playing group. It shows us glimpses into the character’s lives and how this LARP group functions. We got to discuss the hurdles they encountered in making the show, how LARP differs from improv, how many of the cast and crew are gamers, and how joining forces with Geek & Sundry helped them. If you’ve never LARPed before it’s a fun look at how a LARP can work. If you have LARPed before, there are many tips of the hat and fun jabs that you will pick up on.
You can follow each of these fine young gentlemen:

Glenn’s Review:

Glenn reviewed New York 1901 from Blue Orange Games. This board game, for 2-4 players, takes you back to the hayday of early 20th Century New York. You need to build up this city to the magnificence we know that it is. Your objective is to purchase land and build the key skyscrapers of the day. A game takes about 45 minutes and well worth the time.
