Tonight, the eccentric Smogbottom family gathers around the dinner table for an evening of merriment, chicanery, and chaos. Drinks will be spilled, secrets will be uncovered, and fun will be had by all. “There’s no family like us!”

The Smogbottoms is a dinner party LARP in development by Jay Dragon & Abe Mendes. It’s a fast-moving game of raucous conversations, jovial arguments, hidden agendas, bald faced lies, and ludicrous-truths.

The game is loosely inspired by the Addams Family franchise, and by games like Mafia, Werewolf, and The Resistance.

Accessibility Notes:
The Smogbottoms is played sitting down around a table. It requires using your hands to move objects. Any walking around is entirely optional and peripheral to the game. No actual food or drink will be consumed.

Content Warnings:
This game’s themes include family dysfunction & reunions, food & drink, smoking, and murder.

    Hey, just a quick question – I have a baby (3 months at the time of BBC) who is super chill. I’ve taken her to Pacificon, and played several RPGs with her, and she basically just sleeps or stares at the lights unless she wants to eat or needs to be changed (both of which are fairly non-intrusive activities). Would you be open to me playing with her? If not, I completely understand, no worries!

      Definitely! My only thought there is that this game will probably have a lot of overlapping conversations in a pretty small space, and could get pretty loud, but as long as you don’t anticipate that being an issue, then absolutely!
