The Iron Sea is an adventure live action simulation set in a fictional expanse of the Caribbean dubbed the Black Noose Islands in the early 1700s. You take on the roles of pirates, navies and civilians in a struggle for dominance over this remote patch of waters on the edge of civilisation. You will have to navigate the treacherous straits of local politics, engage in nerve-wracking combat on the high seas, guard your back against treachery, and of course, hunt for signs of the rumoured treasures!
What is a live action simulation?
Live action simulations are large-scale immersive experiences that combine elements of roleplaying, board games and wargaming. iX simulations take place in real-time and can have a diverse range of themes, settings, features and mechanics. Generally, our events involve more than 50 participants and last a whole day (from 5 to 8 hours), followed by social drinks.
Prior to the event day, you will be organised into teams and briefed on your individual roles. On the day, you will take part in an emergent story that puts you directly at the heart of the action. You and your team will face challenges that require teamwork, negotiation and creative thinking. Every decision you make matters!
iX simulations are in-depth and immersive. Game Masters, called Moderators, will be on hand to help with the rules. They will also help you to stretch the boundaries of possibilities by creating new options and scenarios that will affect the emergent narrative as a whole.

Do I need prior experience in order to play?
Absolutely not! iX simulations are accessible, intutitive and easy to learn. You will recieve a briefing pack tailored to your role in advance of the event that explains all you need to know. On the day, you will have at your disposal a high trained team of Moderators to assist you through the experience.
What is included in the ticket price?
The ticket price include admission for the event, a copy of the briefing tailored to your role, and a catered lunch on the day.
How can I play with my friends as a team?
