Signup for the games has now opened. If you have signed up for Grenselandet, you should have gotten an email by now with login information on how to prioritize which games to play. Remember that we have more than 100 participants and some games can only accomodate 3-5 players, so don't be too disappointed if you don't get all of your top choices.
If you have not signed up in advance, you're welcome to meet up at Chateau Neuf from Friday at 16:00 and sign up for games that still have vacant spots!
We are happy to announce the last two larps for Grenselandet. One of them is the Belarussian game "An Unforgetable Holiday". This is a brand new game that was played for the first time last Sunday, and we are very happy to see this being produced on Grenselandet.
The other game is New voices in Art, a classic chambergame about aspiring artists and their emotions. More info on the program page.
We are sorry that signup for individual games is delayed due to technical problems. We hope to open it very shortly.
Grenselandet closed for signups before the weekend, and with 109 pre-signups it's set to be the biggest Grenselandet ever.
If you haven't signed up yet, it's still possible to meet up on Chateau Neuf and attend games where there is space left. Players who have never played a larp before will be given priority.
You are also welcome to hang out in the cafe or play your own spontaneous games on the side of the official programme.
The festival seems to be international not only in terms of larps from several different country but also in terms of the guests. We wish a special welcome to those travelling from abroad to larp in Oslo, all the way from countries like Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Latvia, Belarus, Scotland, France, Italy and Palestine.
If you arrive early, we recommend joining the "day in Oslo" programme Friday morning.
Grenselandet have received a great number of signups lately, and we are happy to release some new games to accomodate more players.
"When our destinies meet" is a "toolbox" where the players design their own game under supervision from the directors. A lot of methods and techniques are applied to make it an interesting story.
We also have a rerun of a Oslo Larp Factory game, Sarkofag, which is about people gathered in a bomb shelter. The game is about ordinary people realizing there is no escape from their imminent death following a nuclear explosion.
Grenselandet is closing for pre-signups today. If you do not sign up in advance you will not be entitled to pre-signup for individual games (opening on Monday). Also, we can not guarantee that we have enough food for you.
If you haven't signed up in advance, you can still show up on Grenselandet and sign up for standby places in any game.
Coming to Grenselandet Thursday evening og Friday morning? Need something to do until the festival starts? We're putting together a guided tour for anyone who wants to see the best parts of Oslo, according to locals.
We'll do some of the touristy stuff (like walking on the Opera roof) and some of the stuff you need locals to tell you (like the best places to get a cheap, but decent meal). And maybe we'll even throw together a custom tourist map if the demand for the tour is high enough.
It's november, we'll be walking, and Oslo gets pretty cold this time of year. We suggest bringing warm clothes and some good boots if you plan on joining.
Use this form to let us know if you're interested. We'll start around 11 in the morning, and finish up close to Grenselandet around 16 where you can buy a cheap meal in Glassbaren. Final instructions will be given.
