DESCRIPTION
TYPE
City
1989
City was a game I created as a kid that was played between 1989 and 1996 by kids from local neighborhoods. Real governments and economies were formed in different regions. Goods and services were provided by companies that the kids established, this included newspapers, sports leagues and trading cards, post offices, gathering of various resources, fort construction, banking, and even a real estate and stock market. Intense geopolitical rivalries took place, which often led to wars (much to the dismay of parents). Cities were normally started by a kid at their house, or section of their house or yard if there were multiple kids from the same family, and these often had elections to determine leaders. Each country normally had its own fiat currency and was usually accepted abroad, and over printing of bills sometimes led to hyperinflation. Bills were hand drawn or printed from a computer.
LARP
Grass Hockey
1991
A more violent form of field hockey used with hockey sticks and wiffle bats, this sport was eventually incorporated into the RPG City along with American Football, Basketball, Wiffle Ball, Wiffle Bat Fighting (much less lethal version of sword fighting that used cushions for shields), Inline Hockey, and Soccer.
SPORT
Laser War Games
2006
Outdoor combat simulation league which was active from 2006-2011. Games were played in all types of weather, and generally involved 2 randomly picked teams that would face off against each other once on both offense and defense (the defense would protect the same goal). Statistics for individuals were kept based on survival rate. Each rotating battle strictly used a 1 hit equals kill rule.
LARP
New World Football
2019
A hybrid of various types of football played around the world (Gridiron, Aussie Rules, Gaelic, Rugby and Association). The home team choses the type of football used.
