The Labor Wars takes place over a full weekend, starting on Friday night and continuing through Saturday into Sunday afternoon. An in-character dinner will be served on Saturday night.
Each day of the game represents one of the three meetings at Timothy Althaus's house. They are not consecutive days in game time. At the end of each night, players will engage in a wargame, simulating their group's actions between that meeting and the following one.
It is possible for characters to die during the war game, or from duels. Should this happen, the character will be replaced by another person from their faction, played by the same player.
The Labor Wars is a politics-heavy, roleplay-oriented, mechanics-light, theatre-style LARP. Dueling will be simulated using a simple mini-game.
