The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie is designed to be played around a dinner table.

Here's the pitch:

"A group of friends and lovers attempt to eat dinner together, but are repeatedly interrupted. Can they retain their personalities and their faultless manners, in the face of a succession of increasingly surreal and disturbing disruptions? Can the bourgeoisie preserve its discreet charm, as familiar world order crumbles into chaos?
"The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie is a larp inspired by the 1972 film, directed by Luis Buñuel, of the same name. It's intended to be a short and fun experience, suitable for use as an icebreaker type of activity."
