Live Game Labs is a larp collective in the USA. It is part of the California larp community.

LGL consists of approximately twenty larp authors and runs primarily one-shot theatre-style larps in the greater Los Angeles area, as well as the ongoing Starship Valkyrie campaign. LGL attempts to present a diverse range of genres, including historical, science fiction, horror, fantasy, westerns, crossover genres, adaptations of known shows, movies, comics, as well as experimental larps such as STEEDS

Many of the founding members of the LGL have strong historical associations with Enigma, the UCLA speculative fiction and gaming club. A handful of Enigma larp designers founded LGL in 2009 with the name "Enigma Live Game Labs", but dropped the "Enigma" moniker a year later. Over the past few years, more designers have joined the organization, and the connection to Enigma has diluted. The LGL had had a strong presence at Wyrdcon in its early years.
