Why Create Dragon Thrones?


Why Create Dragon Thrones?


We've always held a deep admiration for medieval fantasy, live action role-play, war strategy gaming, social deduction gaming, and renaissance festivals. So we've created a signature weekend featuring all of our passions, yet relying on our own original stories, game designs, and content.

The Game Theatre believes that orchestrated and compelled player interaction and thematic social adventure can be designed to bring together people from various backgrounds into one epic collective experience. Simultaneous and cohesive role-play, storied gaming, and entertainment works masterfully together as powerful force of interpersonal discovery.
