A club for collective imagining and role play games

Enter the fiction, enter the magic circle, enter Club of What If. Play experimental and queer pen-&-paper role plays, live action role plays, and worldbuilding games or test and develop your own.

Club of What If is a society for analog role play games and live action role play, collective imagination and worldbuilding. It seeks narratives beyond existing fantasy stereotypes, related forms of playful imagination in other fields such as choreography, and works to decompose the boundary of play and non-play through the occult and magic.

Initiated by: Sidi Dungeorine, Big Diane Little and others.

Particularly suitable for people who enjoy playing along and fabulating, or who want to develop their own games. No special knowledge is required.
