Megagames are a mashup of LARPs, board games, and model UN. Each megagame has it’s own rules, but they typically involve large groups of players interacting with each other, through negotiation or confrontation, using light board game rules. Each part of the megagame can’t be too deep, as to engulf that player and exclude them from the rest of the game. Our friends at Shut Up & Sit Down have a great video showing you the experience of playing the most popular megagame, Watch the Skies.
I’m currently developing a new megagame for our local chapter MN Megagames. I’ll be posting updates about the progress of the game.
