Nordic Larp got reviewed by Saara Ala-Luopa, University of Turku, in Pelitutkimuksen vuosikirja 2011. Pelitutkimuksen vuosikirja is an annual yearbook of Finnish game studies, a peer-reviewed publication edited by a bunch of academics with fancy titles, so I hoped for a thorough thrashing. Unfortunately, she doesn’t go into many details or strong opinions, but is generally very positive — the most significant complaint she presents is that there should have been more written on topics such as larp organizing philosophies and game mechanics.
