ABOUT MY HISTORY WITH LOONEY LABS...
I don't really have a history. One day at a convention, I was taught how to play Fluxx. By that evening, I'd bought my own copy and was teaching others and it doesn't seem to have stopped since. My only problem is having to repeatedly explain to people that no, they can't have my copy of Q-Turn.
ABOUT ME...
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...a gamer was created. Be it board games, card games, computer games, solo adventure books, she loved them all. Some complete idiot let her get her hands on RPGs next, and she began to GM from the age of 8.
Enough of the third person. I also adore playing and listening to music and have a knack for learning instruments very quickly (well, the basics). I love to cook and bake...but hate to eat the end result which is silly. I operate a charity bake sale at conventions when I'm being a Looney Tech - chocolate brownies always draw a crowd.. When I'm not gaming, cooking, playing music, writing, painting or anything else, I'm a campaigner for autism and mental health awareness.
LOONEY LABS GAMES I PLAY/PROMOTE:
Fluxx, Looney Pyramids, Time Travel Games, Aquarius, Are You a Werewolf?, Are You The Traitor?

Starship Captain List

In my efforts to graduate from the Academy, I submit the following list of pyramidal credits:

IceDice
Pharaoh
Treehouse
World War 5
Zendo
Launchpad 23
Volcano
Martian Coasters
Black ICE
Icetowers
Zark City
Martian Chess

In my defence for the list being so short, I would remind the Academy Board that I spend considerable time on secondment to the Time Repair Agency and researching uncertainty with the Fluxx Group.

Jennifer Waddington's Event Reports

Conception 2013, Highcliffe-on-Sea UK, 30th January-2nd February

I apologise for the late report; non-gaming life got in the way.

To cover the negatives first (because then everything else is good), I had difficulties with people who either didn't approve of the 14+ regulation for the pyramids, or who assumed that it didn't apply to their children (in the first case, the fact that I had a sign obviously downloaded from the website helped, and they got over their 'health and safety gone mad' grump after a short while. In the second case, the…

Dragonmeet, Kensington Town Hall, London UK, 1st December 2012

This was my first convention post-EU safety changes for the pyramids, so wouldn't it just be the convention at which every other person wanted to play a Pyramid game!

The organisers kindly let me have two tables, which meant that games didn't have to keep being scrabbled up and piled at the end whenever a demo took place, and also having a display entices wandering gamers over for a look. I ended up with 'Everything Fluxx' on one table, along with the promo cards stashed at one end,…

OddCon: Park Inn Telford, UK. October 12th-14th

A regular host for Rabbits/Techs, this convention continued to be small yet busy. On the good side, attendees were friendly, listened when rules were explained and asked before borrowing games to look through. On the down side, they wanted that Horror In Clay promo and weren't taking 'No' for an answer.

I gave the Horror In Clay card out on 4 occasions; as a prize in the two tournaments I ran on each day of the weekend (Friday was left free for unstructured demos). I feel somewhat…

Cthulhu Fluxx Demo, Wayland's Forge games store, Birmingham UK

This was a drop-in event held at the FLGS on Saturday 25th August.

Unfortunately, it was also held on a weekend of non-stop torrential downpours and thunderstorms. This meant that a lot of people who would otherwise have spent the weekend utilising the store as a gamers' community centre stayed home.

On the positive side, this meant that people who were either down to work in the store or attend the Heroclix tournament at the other end of the gaming area had plenty of spare…

You are the fourth friend I have here.  I've not been active on this site at all - the only reason I did finally join was to post about the "box bands" that fit the new Fluxx boxes.  

Are you on Google+?  I'm there, but again, not very active - rarely check things.  I was fairly active on Facebook until they royally screwed things up - again - and I got fed up.  I check that as well, rarely, but I'm there.

 

I will be off and about today - so I'd not suggest a call today (12 Oct) but let's make sure to chat again soon, all right?

I've lost count of how many years they've been welcoming Lab Rabbits and Game Techs to this convention...but every year is just as busy if not more so!It's held at an off-season holiday village, so it's a snug and cosy atmosphere with great people. Also, there may be crash space in our cabin if anyone is worried about accommodation at short notice. The downside of this is that you will be made to eat cake and cookies for 'quality control purposes, honestly'.At present, I'm planning on closing…See More

Dragonmeet 2012 at Kensington Town Hall, London, UK

December 1, 2012 all day
Dragonmeet - the best reason to brave London during Xmas shopping season...The organisers have kindly given over space for Game Tech demos, and the regular audience at this convention has a wide range of favourites from the Looney catalogue. Hopefully the Pyramid Cadet Training Course will be on offer, and there will be the regular giveaways of promo cards for all players.By special request of the organisers, chocolate brownies will be available. See More

Jennifer Waddington replied to Bryan Stout's discussion '"Horror in Clay" promo card for Cthulhu Fluxx?'
"I am afraid that I fail on two counts here. First, I'm one of those sneaky people who ordered the maximum of 10. Second, I am impervious to all pleas as far as sending out 'spare' copies goes. I use quotation marks because none are…"

OddCon 2012 at Park Inn Hotel

October 12, 2012 at 11am to October 14, 2012 at 5pm
OddCon is quite possibly the least formally organised convention on the UK circuit. That said, they welcome all who comes bearing games. With the exception of the Friday night charity fundraiser quiz, they have no trouble with (previously) Rabbits or (now) Game Techs staking out an area and acting both as a demonstrator and a game library.In addition to unstructured demo time, I will be running three events: two Fluxx tournaments, one for Cthulhu Fluxx and one for Oz Fluxx and a Starship Grand…See More

"I think it's intended to be a convention exclusive, so possibly never... (I call discrimination against non-US Techs who can't afford the plane fare! :) )  "

Cthulhu fhtagn! (No, seriously guys, he's fhtagning quite a lot now...) at Wayland's Forge

August 25, 2012 all day
An all-day, all-Cthulhu Fluxx Sanity eater; it's time to start the rise of our Dread Lord Cthulhu over a country still reeling from the Olympics (and I'm pretty sure that Nyarlathotep was behind those). A drop-in, all welcome session with promos for all and maybe Yellow Sign cookies too.See More
