What is Cosplay / Live Action Role Playing (LARP)?
Cosplay (Costume Play) is where each participant get to enjoy the foam battle activity while playing his/her favorite character. Have you ever dreamt of being Jon Snow, Thor, Wonder Woman, Hawk eye, Zelda, Katniss…
Now at Thundrdome we have special nights that you get to dress up as your favorite character and portray him/her in Live Action Role Playing (LARP) Games.
How to LARP?
Players may dress as their character and carry appropriate equipment such as hammer of Thor, Captain America’s shield, Lord of the Rings Sword, or bow and arrow, etc. The players pursue goals within a fictional setting represented by the real world while interacting with each other in character. Each game is 75 minutes and will have a gamemaster decide the setting and rules to be used and facilitate play. All foam weapons are provided by Thundrdome however, we do not provide costumes for participants.

Some of the battle rules are:
1) If you take an arm hit, you lose the arm. It must be held behind the back and cannot be used for anything. Do not drop your weapon – hold it behind your back. You may switch your weapon off to another hand before moving your arm behind your back, but do it quickly – people can attack you during this time.
2) If you take a leg hit, you lose that leg. Pick it up and do not put any weight on it. You can always use the leg from the knee up – so even with no legs you can walk on your knees. If you are going to fall – please catch yourself. Just don’t catch yourself in any direction. In other words – don’t use the injured leg to move.
3) If you take a body hit, you are out of the game. Hold your weapon horizontally across your shoulders behind your head and squat down so people know you are out of the game. If you are in the way of combat, move just out of the way, but do not move any more than is needed for your safety.
4) If you take a body hit and have no weapons at hand to provide the normal out of the game sign with, you may instead interlink your fingers behind your head and kneel as normal.
All players must have a signed waiver before playing Turf Wars. Players under the age of 18 must have the waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.
