LARP event details:
Interfection, the Intervention Zombie LARP, will be continue it’s reign as the preeminent convention zombie LARP this year. Will you be infected? Will you fall prey to the evil Zombie baby (like so many of our participants in our first year)? Interfection was a huge success in 2010 and 2011, garnering some of the highest feedback to us as a “must do” event at the con, so we are very excited to have them return this year for further undead hijinks.
