Tickets

Didn't get a ticket? - there is still a chance If you turn up at the door you can get a last minute ticket for a larp if there are vacant spots. This will cost NOK 150 (NOK 100 dicsounted). If you don't get a spot on a larp you will not have to pay anything. Previous years, we have been able to find a spot for last minute tickets about 80% of the time, so the odds are quite good.

Can I join the party even if not participating at Grenselandet? You need a ticket to come in. You can pay the price of a last minute ticket (NOK 150/100) even though you are not playing if you only want to join the party. Or better - you can sign up to help us with pratical stuff (mostly cooking) - and we will both feed you, love you and throw you a party. To volunteer, please contact us at admin@grenselandet.net.

More good stuff from Denmark


Grenslandet organizers went to Blackbox Copenhagen, the Danish blackbox larp scene’s annual experimental playground. And we were impressed. Really impressed. So despite the fact that half of this year’s program already consist of Danish games, we couldn’t resist inviting another two. Two years ago we had "From Sweden with tape" as a theme for Grenselandet, 2012 seems to be the year of the Danes.

“Hvit død” (White death) is an extraordinary game using very simple scenography to tell a tragic story in a poetic way. “It is one of the most beautiful games I have played”, says Grenselandet organizer Martin Nielsen. “It masterly manages to portray manhood’s story of how lack of communication leads to tragedy despite the best intentions. Although using an abstract setting and a design staying clear of techniques designed to make the players feel close to home, this was a very strong emotional experience and a game with wonderful esthetics”, says Nielsen.

The second Danish game, “Retropolis”, is set in a dystopian future based on the film Metropolis from 1927. A theatre-style larp where the story is directed from the organizers. The game uses the players not present in a scene in a very innovative way, as they are playing the scenography. “The Retropolis designers have paid a lot of attention to making the game easy to play. Using full transparency, information through several channels and clear options for play they allow the players to spend their energy on the acting rather than figuring out what will be the right thing to do. This game is innovative and interesting for an experienced player, but also a very good introductory game for people who want to play a larp for the first time”, the organizer comments.
