The Road Not Taken


The Road Not Taken is an experimental theatre-style larp for 6-12 players by Mike Young, in which the participants play voices and competing points of view in the head of the main character as they face a series of dilemmas and life decisions. The game uses character switching, with players also taking turns to play the main character (so it is not a horde game). The game has been widely played, with Larp Resume listing runs in the USA, Australia, Norway, and Canada.[1]

The game was runner-up in the 2010 Larpwriter Challenge.[2] A second set of dilemmas has been written by Aaron Vanek.[3]

Summary

The Road Not Taken is an experimental LARP of decisions and emotions. In it, each player will have the opportunity to take the spotlight in a scene and make a tough decision. It is a serious game of deep emotions, difficult decisions, and psychodrama using the format of 10 Bad LARPs.
