Stats for 2010

Hi larpers!

For the last post of the year, I've compiled some statistics on the use of Larpwriter during 2010 (as of November 8), one year after its opening.

Larpwriter is mainly used in France, then a bit in New Zealand and Canada.

There were 47 active larps created. I've only counted the larps with at least 10 characters in order to eliminate all the larps created to test.

They contain a total of 1804 characters, 362 groups, 427 documents, 166 organizers and 1001 players (because some of those larps have not yet opened their registrations).

The largest larp has 223 characters, on average there are 38 characters by larp but this figure is underestimated because some of the larps are still being written.

The average age of players is 27 years, the youngest was 8 years old and the oldest 58 years.

That's all, next year I will take more time to detail including the distribution of players by age and gender.
