“Same Bat Time, Same Bat Mitzvah” is a lovely idea for a larp. I want more of it, but I also want to play it as it is. This is a game I’ll take to conventions, and I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for more of this if it ends up expanding. - Bronwyn
I really appreciated that Same Bat Time Same Bat Mitzvah playfully brought vampires into a Jewish context. - Jessica
