Be aware there is a scammer targeting looney lab fan club members. If you are contacted by a Miss Lucia Edward Weah or any variant of that name do not reply. 'She' will send a message saying her…Continue

ABOUT MY HISTORY WITH LOONEY LABS...
My brother introduced me to looney lab games while we were up north at our cottage (which is kinda a shack my grandfather built- no electricity, running water, etc.. we play alot of games there. my kids and I thought the games were amazing so when we got home I purchased my own games (Chrononauts and Fluxx and Family Fluxx). My instructions for Chrononauts was lost so I contacted the Looney Labs people- BEST customer service EVER. This made me not only love the games but fond of the company itself. I bought more games on the internet- again best service yet. We love playing the games.
ABOUT ME...
I live in Canada. I am a single mom (35 yrs old)to three boys(17, 12, 8). My two older children have Aspbergers. In high school I was the top of all my classes. I received a Governor's General award at my graduation. I went to McMaster University intending to go to medical school. I took natural sciences my first year but didn't feel quite like it was a right fit. In order to see what it would be like working in a hospital setting I went into nursing (a four year degree), at the end of my third year I became quite ill and was hospitalized for a few months. My gallbladder was the problem, they took it out and I went back to school. I no longer wanted to be anywhere near a hospital so I left nursing to pursue my true love: Math, Statistics and Physics. In total I did 10 yrs at university. My first son was born before I went to University. My second son was born at the end of my first year and my third son was born in my tenth year. One morning I was carrying him down the stairs and I fell. Holding him tight so he wouldn't get hurt I took the brunt of the fall (he slept through it). My back was badly injured and I had to leave University as I could no longer sit through classes. I miss school very much. I am now on disability (I really wanted to go to teacher's college upon graduation to share my love of math) and deal with chronic pain everyday. I lost the ability to do many of my hobbies so I needed to start finding others. I am a true believer in time spent as a family (not just dinner time) and so we play at least one game every night. My Chrononauts game and Fluxx games are family favorites. Some things I like to do are reading, programming visual basics, knit, crochet, draw, Sudoku, brain teasers and anything that involves manipulating numbers. What I like the most is spending time with my kids, playing with them ans creating with them.
LOONEY LABS GAMES I PLAY/PROMOTE:
Fluxx, Looney Pyramids, Time Travel Games

Started 2nd hospital site group n looking into local library

2nd hospital group same as the 1st a little bit different but not any worse (its alot of fun really- just felt like rhyming). Living in rural area with 2 elementary schools (catholic n public: how it works up here in the north: don't pay for it either; or health care), summer wanes and as the bikes et all go away the troublesome kiddies come out to play. Our local library does very little- if I can get my hands on enough materials hopefully a gaming group will become into being. Hoping on age… Continue

Fluxx at the Welland Hospital and Autism social skills class!

I work with two groups my autism group and my hospital group. Both stories fit the same description. I volunteer in the mental health ward, doing group activities such as crafts and games. I also work with a group of boys with aspbergers syndrome. I always bring my fluxx cards as they are a favorite. On our first time playing we had a group of four (+me). We started out with family fluxx as its a little easier than the others. Everyone had a great time... Once everyone got the hang of it we… Continue
