[Pre-IceSheet Rules] Cracked Ice

In working towards more IceSheets for the big pyramid push, I looked towards the classics, such as the game this thread concerns itself with, Cracked Ice. It was originally published in Hypothermia,…Continue

[Pre-Icesheet Rules] Thin Ice

In working towards getting more IceSheets together, I looked towards the classics. As in games that have already been published with rules, but haven't been put in the IceSheet format yet. So, here…Continue

Joshua Denmeade's Event Reports

Grad Student Game Night @ YSU

I am a Graduate Student in Chemistry at Youngstown State University, and some of the other grad students tossed around the idea of a game night. Tonight was the first of such events and a good time was had by all. All the games that were played were of the Pyramid variety, and the other grad students are well on their way to becoming Starship Captains. We started off playing World War 5. It took everyone a while to get the hang of it, but eventually Africa (me) won the day. Afterwards, I…

AnCon 2012, Hudson, Ohio

This past weekend was AnCon, located in Hudson, Ohio. Matt Ankney and myself worked under the steely gaze of Andrew Burkett to demonstrate as many Looney Labs games as we could. Throughout the weekend, we demonstrated Seven Dragons, Chrononauts, Star and Oz Fluxx, and many different games for Looney Pyramids. I was lucky enough to be able to play several awesome games of Binary and Sinister Homeworlds throughout the weekend, and even was able to teach the game to a couple people, which was a…

GemCon, Dayton, OH

I was in Dayton, Ohio this weekend, visiting my girlfriend, and happened to have some time to stop by GemCon, located at Wright State University. It was a small con, but the fellow who owns the comic book shoppe my girlfriend frequents was running a game room. He's a Looney Labs distributor, and I figured this was as good a time as any to get my demo on. He did not yet have any copies of Oz Fluxx to sell, but he had almost every other type of Fluxx, so I got out my other versions, along with…

Wedding Centerpieces

My fiance, who has just recently finished her Starship Captain training, and I are getting married in September, and she has left it up to me to create the centerpieces for my wedding. We decided that, due to our love of games, that each centerpiece should be a self contained, functional game. Our hope is that we can have the people who take home the centerpieces take home a game that they can play, and so what better way to make centerpieces than to create them out of pyramids? I have some…See More

Joshua Denmeade replied to Ryan Hackel's discussion 'Pyramid-athlon'
"See the only problem with this, for me personally, is that some games, being only 2 player, might pose a difficulty in actually scoring that way. For example, while Homeworlds can be played with multiple players, most players will agree that the…"

Joshua Denmeade replied to James Mitchell's discussion 'Erm... Pyramids? Where should I start?'
"That's a good idea. The kit comes with the pyramid primer guide #1 which is a great place to start. 13 pyramid games, and most of them among the best and most popular, plus all the things you need to play said games"
