Shout out to some of the world’s larp conventions. This list would be way longer if I included all the general gaming conventions that offer larp as part of the fun; I tried to keep it to just the larp cons here.
Conventions for talking about larp, meeting larpers, and occasionally larping:
Mittelpunkt — The German Knudepunkt held in January near Frankfurt.
Solmukhota 2012 — This year’s Knutepunkt. April 12-15, Finland.
Odraz — The Czech Knutepunkt, in 2011 it was in April.
WyrdCon — the American Knutepunkt. June 21-24, California.
Larp Symposium 2011 — The Italian Knutepunkt (use Google translate to read it) held in October.
GNiales — The French Knutepunkt held in November in Paris.
Conventions for larping in larps:
Chimera — August convention in Auckland, New Zealand
InterCons — conventions sponsored by LARPA that focus on theater-style games. In DC in September and Massachusetts in March.
DREAMATION and DEXCON — General gaming cons with a larp presence in New Jersey. DREAMATION runs in February, DEXCON runs in July.
