Shifted Lands LARP September 2020

For over 20 years Shifted Lands has been providing a fun and exciting gaming environment for people just like you. Whether a cunning rogue, brave warrior, or mystical wizard, SL has unlimited potential to help you become the adventurer of your dreams.

If you have never played a LARP (live-action role-playing game) before, think of a good book you have read. Remember how that one character in the book just seemed to survive it all, against all odds? Remember the character that nearly died while saving the life of 10 others and became the hero? Ever wished you could be in that situation? Now you can! You actually get to become your character, be in a battle, cast the magic, and swing the sword.

Shifted Lands LARP takes place in the fantasy world of Aldretha, which is surrounded by an endless sea of magical mist. For hundreds of years lands have shifted into and out of this mist, and for hundreds of years these lands have brought new allies and enemies, heroes and villains, victories and failures… Now a brave new land has opened its doors and exploration is just over the next hilltop.

Ann Arbor Michigan Pinball Show 2020

2020 pinball showcase Saturday April 25th and Sunday April 26th with 425+ machines on free play. Our facility is the one of the largest dedicated pinball venues (by unique game count) in North America and has games from the 1950s “woodrails” to the latest games from Stern pinball. Every decade, manufacturer and game type is represented at the museum. There are many rare and hard to find games set up and ready to play. All machines are free play, so one entrance ticket allows unlimited play for the day. There’s something for every pinball fan here (we are the one of the largest dedicated pinball facility in North America.) But unlike other pinball museum type facilities, we are here every day working on our machines, making sure they play perfect! Arguably this makes us the best working/restored pinball collection in North America.
