There have been annual New England Intercon conventions since we started back in 1998. They are summarized in the table below, and you can follow the links to see more about those cons.
Take a look at these cons and you'll see an eclectic collection of LARPs of all sizes, shapes, genres, styles, and approaches to LARP. You'll find more LARPs in one place than you can find just about anywhere else. You'll see experienced authors and new writers. You'll see new games as well as classic games running again for a new audience. In the most recent conventions, you'll also see panels, workshops, and discussions. Intercon is a place where writers can experiment with LARP, and where players can try their hand at a diverse array of interesting games.
When we started the New England Intercons, we had to scramble to find five tracks of LARPs for the schedule, to handle all the players. (The con more than doubled in size between January and March.) It was a huge and unprecedented collection of LARPs. For Intercon N, our seventeenth convention, we have seventeen different tracks of LARPs on Saturday afternoon alone. There are eighteen tracks on Saturday night. Intercon the Thirteenth, our first Intercon, would fit into Intercon N's Saturday afternoon and evening slots with room to spare. It boggles my mind, to see what we started, and how far it's come.
