Is not the size of the dog in the fight, is the size of the fight in the dog that matters.

LRP is LIve Role Play. So a bunch of people get together at the weekends and go out into the woods somewhere or to some abandoned building and play at x-com "for real". Which sounds like a real hoot.

I guess other people would act as the aliens.

It's a cross between pen n paper and paintballing, which sounds like a hoot.

Last month my local game/hobby store did an XCOM-themed LRP in a paintball range(simulated indoor/outdoor area aobut 2 acres overall in size :) ). We didn't use costumnesa for the alines, other than a dark grey sweatshirt to note the difference. However, we did a series of three way battles - those of us wearing some kind of military-style camo(X-COM soldiers), the guys and girls wearing the dark grey sweatshirts(aliens) and others who were dressed however they showed up to play the role of paniced civilians. Man, what a blast. Th airsoft weaponry most of us were givin was awesome(full-auto, gas powered) while some of us had our own. Heh, four of us had some of the Pulse Rifle airsoft guns that Monsters In Motion sells. Man, it was a hoot to actually take mine off the wall and use it!

Bottom line, if you can find a dedicated group to do this style of LRP, and have a place that can at least simulate some kind of decent-sized indoor area(s) give it a shot! You don't need airsoft - in fact regular paintball guns are just as good.
