Thank you for Just a Little Lovin' 2012

The second run of Just a Little Lovin' is now complete. Thanks to Petter Karlsson, Miriam Lundqvist and Anna Karin Linder for making it possible to let more people experience this story by producing the game in Sweden. Thanks also to Victor Bernhardtz and Sofia Stenler for helping us out as crew during the game. And thanks again to Astrid Solgaard for once again lending us her artwork specially made as scenography for Just a Little Lovin'

We feel grateful for the dedication and emotional bravery of everyone who put their heart and soul into bringing these characters' journeys to life. Thanks to all the participants who came, loved and lost and partied like it was 1982-83-and-84. The memories from this summer will stay with us for a long time. 

Reflections on the larp from some of the participants

Nathan Hook has written two pieces on his blog. One is a larp event report focusing on the game mechanics, and the other is a play report about his character's story in relation to other characters.
