Double feature: Spellbound

The Stephens are the perfect American family. At least, that’s what Don needs his potential new client to believe, which is why he invited him to the family’s Thanksgiving Dinner. Unfortunately his mother-in-law will also be there, and she has a tendency to turn people into toads when they displease her…

Spellbound! is a comedy larp inspired by TV shows such as Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie .

Full, 2 waitlisted.

15:30 - 18:30. Petone Community House, 6 Britannia St. $20 / $15 for NZLARPS / SAGA / VUWGC members and new larpers. Signup

Double feature: Burning Orchid

Set in 1932 at the party celebrating the wrap of location filming for a Hollywood movie. Burning Orchid is an immense blockbuster, detailing the passionate heart of a claustrophobic forbidden love story set in the jungle villages of Guatemala against a background of a country riven by political turmoil. And that’s not just the movie! Glamorous cast, intense emotions, a steamy situation, secrets past and present – who knows what might happen, but fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night.

Burning Orchid is a larp by Peaky Games. The theme is intensely emotional, centering on romance. It is not suitable for under-18s. Players need to be willing to play characters in romantic situations and with various sexualities, as all characters have romance.

Full, 2 waitlisted.

20:00 - 22:00. Petone Community House, 6 Britannia St. $20 / $15 for NZLARPS / SAGA / VUWGC members and new larpers. Signup

Den of Wolves Megagame

Fleeing from the Wolver Tyranny, the last battleship Aegis leads a ragtag fugitive fleet on a lonely quest…

Den of Wolves is a megagame about politics, survival, and paranoia for a fleet of refugee spaceships, escorted by the Battleship Aegis, fleeing from an implacable enemy – “the Wolvers.” Your homeworlds have been destroyed by the Wolvers, there is no going back. To stay where you are is to be destroyed, to go forward into the deep dark is your only hope of survival. For more information about the game please visit our website at https://housewar.org/den-of-wolves/

This game is being run by the Wellington Megagame Collective, who have run four megagames at conventions in Wellington over the last two years.
