    Do more aspies than non-aspies like live action role-playing gaming or do less aspies do?

    LARPing?

    Something tells me you'd be hard-pressed to find many on the spectrum who are into that. That's an EXTREMELY social activity. If you're talking about what I think you're talking about.

    I highly doubt there's too much of that going on these days anyway. What with the pandemic.

    I like the idea, but it does seem a bit social, and involves a lot of improv, which I'm just awful at. Not to mention keeping track of everyone... I think I'd sooner go for a good old-fashioned turn-based game like D&D.

    I did something similar with my pair of friends when I was younger though. But since it was only at most four of us, it was easy to sort of follow along and follow their leads.

    So I like the idea of it, and I'm certainly not going to pick on those who participate the way the media tends to, but I'd probably rather watch than actually participate.

    I've never tried LARPing. I'm more into table-top RPGs.
