Description

There are some who say that Christopher Marlowe actually wrote the plays attributed to Shakespeare...

**In the cyberpunk future of 2020 AD, everyone is too busy stabbing each other in the back to give a rat's ass.**

_Marlowe 2020_ takes no less than three of Shakespeare's tragedies, throws in a drop here and there from a comedy and another tragedy, and blends the whole thing into a Shakespeare smoothie, with an extra kick: the whole thing is set in a cyberpunk future of corporate war and artificial intelligence. It's like an extra bit of rum to finish the whole thing off.

_Marlowe 2020_ is the winner of the 2006 [LARPA Small Game Contest](http://larpaweb.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=35&Itemid=35), first run successfully at Intercon Mid-Atlantic XXI, with virtually no preparation at all. This time around we're hoping for a slightly higher budget and to get to know our players a little more than the first time (freed of the constraints of the contest).

This game should have plenty for fans of [cyberpunk](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyberpunk) and Shakespeare alike.

_Warning: Mildly sexual themes, including hints of homosexuality and possible human-on-robot romance. Oh, and expect a little violence..._

Played at

Intercon G (2007)
