A sold-out crowd came out to Jibe-iT goat farm [in Redding, CT] on Saturday for the first ever Goat LARP. At the LARP, which stands for live action role playing, visitors wore costumes and played out fictional stories starring the goats.
"When we sold out, I was ecstatic," said Dan Comstock, one of the organizers. "I was actually at another LARP, and when I announced we had sold out, everybody cheered and clapped for us." The event capped at 100 people, but Comstock estimates the actual attendance was closer to 120 with staff and other people.
Comstock said he initially wasn't sure if the event would sell out because it's "such a unique experiment." He said the biggest challenge has been convincing people it wasn't a joke. He said the goal was to break even. Tickets were $45 each and included the games, meal and a bonfire.
