Another new larp, from UK larp designer Mo Holkar: Fake News
The setting of Fake News is a fantasy realm that is under the rule of a tyrannical despot. The characters are the ruler’s spin team, working hard to make their reign acceptable to the subjects by putting a regime-favourable take on a succession of current events.
During the course of the game, the players will work their way down a stack of cards which contain the next story that they must come up with a way of spinning as fake news; their powers of invention being more and more called upon, and their cognitive dissonance ever stronger. An overall storyline will develop and build to a climax.
Its a one-hour, card-based thing, and like WINTERHORN on the borderline between larp and tabletop because its basicly a meeting game. But it looks fun. Anyone want to run it at, say, KapCon?
