Christchurch, NZ
Theatre-style larp

Phoenix is a larp convention in New Zealand. It ran for the first time in September 2014.

Initially Phoenix ran at at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, NZ. The non-residential nature of the con restricted it to theatre-style games. In 2017 Phoenix shifted to a residential format using the Glenroy Lodge in Hororata, allowing it to offer outdoor and live-combat games. In 2018 it changed its venue again, to the Waipara Adventure Centre in North Canterbury.

Phoenix is supported by SAGA.
