Introducing Magic Lantern Games

Magic, Mirth, and Mystification

The light of the Larklamp lantern is warm and inviting, with games focused on being interesting to a wide variety of players. Sitting around the lantern also creates a magical atmosphere for playing in the dark. 


Game boards made of shadows are cast by the Larklamp's removable panels, and like cartridges in a videogame system, the panels can be switched out to load in other Larklamp games.

Unique Mechanics for a Unique System

Each Larklamp game contains new and unique play mechanics possible only through the light and shadow features of this patent-pending Magic Lantern Game system.
