New to Origins?

A few months ago, somebody posted a message in the private Origins Volunteers group asking about volunteering for Looney Labs at Origins.  What's included; what do you need to sign up for; what are…Continue

ABOUT MY HISTORY WITH LOONEY LABS...
I've been playing Looney Labs games since the early 2000s. I helped out at the Big Experiment from 2007 to 2011 (when the Big Experiments stopped) and I also helped demo games when the Looneys were in town as GOHs at a local SF con. I ran my first Giant Pyramid event in 2012.
ABOUT ME...
I'm a gamer. I'm lucky enough to be a member of one of the largest game groups in the world (CABS). I've played hundreds of different games and dozens of different Looney Labs games.
LOONEY LABS GAMES I PLAY/PROMOTE:
Fluxx, Looney Pyramids, Time Travel Games, Aquarius, Are You a Werewolf?, Are You The Traitor?

"If you can't play either, then you just discard both. That's the risk you take with that card. Everybody has the same risk. It's not as bad as being forced to do something you don't want to do, which could also happen."

Jeff Wolfe's Event Reports

Tiny Experiment at Marcon 47

I didn't do demos, per se, but I thought you might be interested in my experience this year at Marcon.  Marcon is a science fiction convention which featured Looney Labs as the Gaming Guests of Honor in 2007.



When I go to events like this, I'm always torn between the desire to take games with me and the desire to not have to look after them once I get there.  This time, I solved that dilemma by clipping IceDice to my belt.  My IceDice bag has an extra stash and enough extra bits to…
