Royal Flush

In 2013 we ran this Larp.

ROYAL FLUSH – a 3 hour LARP for 13 players

Set in Wonderland (or rather, an interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland), the Kings, Queens and Jacks of the four kingdoms are called together every year to decide on their shared policies. The way they decide is suitably ridiculous: they play a game that is something of a mix between Go Fish and Poker to see who gets to decide each policy for the year. Meanwhile, there are personal vendettas to resolve and enchantments hidden everywhere, and did someone mention the dreaded Alice?
