A New Game by Pop Up Playground
Nuked up tin-pot dictators, egomaniacal madman and intergalactic super villains are all just a day’s work for The League of Extraordinary Nations.
Protecting the earth from evil through reasoned debate, careful planning, bureaucracy and consensus since 1976.
Players are ambassadors to the League of Extraordinary Nations and must outwit the Super Villain du jour to foil their nefarious plans for world domination.
The League of Extraordinary Nations is a large-scale conversation game of suspense, cliché and hilarity.
Will you work together to achieve world peace (like the real UN) or will suspicion turn you against each other out in the hour of earth’s greatest need.
We’re all spies here – but double agents are murdering our top assets. Your mentor stands accused. Are they guilty? Can you find out before it’s too late?
Join Pop Up Playground for Spy Catcher, a interactive game of inquisition, misdirection and accusation.
Hosted by Ben McKenzie, and featuring a line-up of suspicious spies from all over the Fringe Festival, this game is presented as a free event for the Festival Club games day – followed by Late Night Letters and Numbers.
Watch this space for more details of our line-up!

At this week’s Pop Up Playground for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sarah Jones (Squeaky Clean Comedy) was the first member of the village council to be executed; after Alice Fraser was murdered, Brenna Courtney Glazebrook (More Than This) was next accused, but the audience who had cruelly taunted her during their investigations decided not to lynch her when it came to the vote. She died the next night, leaving Jack Druce (Introvert Def Jam) and Richard McKenzie (Dungeon Crawl) as the final suspects; the audience voted to lynch Jack, only to discover that he was innocent – and that Brenna, wounded by their cruelty, had killed herself and had her revenge on the bloodthirsty village by ensuring they would kill an honest man!
It’s these kinds of impossible-to-predict outcomes that make game so much fun – and we’re looking forward to another amazing game this Thursday night! See you there.
