ABOUT MY HISTORY WITH LOONEY LABS...
I started hosting "game days" at my home when I moved to the D.C. area in 2003. One of my friends brought Fluxx to a game day in the spring of 2004 and someone commented that the company was local. Later that year we picked up Chrononauts at MARCON, just to try out a different game from Looney Labs. In planning our wedding, I started to look a little closer at Looney Labs and their products. After receiving the 2006 Holiday Gift, I immediately purchased a Treehouse set and Martian Coasters, and I was hooked. My husband and I play Treehouse or a Fluxx variant at restaurants while we’re waiting for our food to arrive. I’ve gotten my boss and co-workers addicted to Martian Coasters - we play at lunch!

For our wedding, my husband and I decided to give a Looney Labs game to each couple or family as a wedding favor. Since we were married on Veterans Day, our colors were red, white and blue. Early American Chrononauts and a custom Treehouse set of red, blue, cyan, white, and clear (thought up by the Looneys) were the bulk of the favors. We also had Family Fluxx, Aquarius, and Nanofictionary tied up in patriotic colored ribbons. It was an awesome wedding reception!
ABOUT ME...
My husband and I are raising our first geekling, which of course, has taken over our lives. Before the geekling, I used to keep tropical fish, bead/make jewelry, stargaze, read, and do archery. Like many people in the D.C. area, I’m a government employee. I’m originally from Columbus, Ohio, and I met my husband at the science fiction convention, MARCON.
LOONEY LABS GAMES I PLAY/PROMOTE:
Fluxx, Looney Pyramids, Time Travel Games, Aquarius

Starship Captain List

MAGFest is a music and gaming festival at National Harbor, MD on January 2-5, 2014.  http://magfest.org/While the focus is heavily slanted toward console gaming, they do have a tabletop gaming area with games to use for free play, tournaments, and events. I would love to run some Looney Labs gaming events at MAGFest, but I can't do it myself.  If you are interested in running some events with me, please let me let me know as soon as possible. I'm flexible on…See More

Events at Intervention Con

Intervention Con (http://interventioncon.com/) is located in Rockville, Maryland, on August 23-25. The focus is on internet stuff - comics, blogs, videos, poscasts, etc. But they have several types of gaming rooms and a board game vendor. Last year I ran a Fluxx Fest event with the help of Lara and William, and we had a fairly good turnout. I wouldn't mind doing it again this year, and maybe running a second event with just Fluxx: The Board Game, but…See More

Fluxx Fest at Intervention Con

I thought running one little Fluxx event at a small local convention (Intervention Con, Rockville, MD) would be perfect to get my feet wet again after a hiatus from teaching games. Although I had my husband to help, we also had our 7 month old infant in tow. So I made sure to enlist the help of some other Techs, “just in case.”  I scheduled Fluxx Fest for 4pm – 7pm on Friday night, the first night of Intervention Con. I wasn’t expecting a lot of people because table top gaming isn’t a big…See More
