Time Bubble 2014 was recently announced. For those unfamiliar, Time Bubble is a free weekend of theater LARPing at RPI in Troy, NY (in its usual spot, the Carnegie building.) There are hotels nearby and free crash space available by request.
This year, Time Bubble is happening on Sept. 26th – 28th, and they are now accepting bids. So if you have a theater LARP you’d like to run, consider bidding it to Time Bubble!
This year, Time Bubble has a new twist: players will be rating the games they play, with the highest rated games earning the GMs a prize (not yet announced) and the title GM of the Week. There is also a mini-game currently in the works, and the Mysterious Benefactor writing it has promised one character sheet for every game run, making the alpha run of this new LARP all that much sooner. I’m highly tempted to bid Betrothals and Betrayals again to help make a new LARP happen.
Website and sign-up information for Time Bubble 2014 are coming soon.
In other news, The Dance and the Dawn is being run at the Brick Theater in Brooklyn, NY, as a professional event on July 11th and July 15th, and the Dreams of Ice and Ash expansion is being run on July 13th. I very rarely hear of theater LARPs being run as professional events, if ever, so I was quite interested and excited to hear about it. Tickets can be purchased at bricketheater.com. (Click on the “Game Play 2014” link under “Upcoming Shows” on the right side for descriptions.) There are a number of other interactive events at the Game Play festival that look quite interesting, as well.
