A weekend-long theatre-style game, also known as a Theatre style full-length game, is a theatre-style game which runs for an entire weekend (typically Friday evening until Sunday afternoon).

The Society for Interactive Literature and New England larp community originally ran larps in this format, originally as part of science fiction conventions (making them parasite games) and then at SiLiCon or as standalone events.[1] The format was gradually overtaken by shorter "convention games" during the mid 1990s, and while some classic games are still run, very few are still written.
