(Sorry if this is report but I was just perusing my past event reports and didn't see this one so I am reposting)
So....tabletop day 2013 was a success...but not in the way I expected!
I brought my whole gambit of games, and was wholly expecting the day to be filled with Fluxx and pyramids (which is normal) however I was very pleased when my first group of players wanted to know about Chrononauts, which I love playing, but is often overlooked!…Continue
I hadn't been fully recognized by the site but thought I'd share this anyway. I have no pictures, but I broke out some Pirate Fluxx and some Aquarius during Magcon5 in New Caney, TX on April 13. We had 5 players for each with 1 players who hadn't played Fluxx, 3 who hadn't played Pirate Fluxx, and 2 who hadn't played Aquarius. It was a great time. Two players have since purchased more Looney products. I look forward to showing off more games.

This past weekend marked AnCon (Another Game Convention) in Hudson, Ohio, where Josh Denmeade and I ran the Looney Labs tables. Mr. Denmeade took on the pyramid side of things, where my focus was on the card games. During the weekend we had eight Fluxx qualifiers - from standard to Cthulhu and nearly everything in between - each person who won a qualifier game was given a seat at the final. The final was a game of Fluxx incorporating each and every Fluxx game (including nearly every…Continue

Friday night (5\3) I scheduled to do Looney Pyramid demos at the Griffon open game night. Unfortunatly, I got a table in the room where a HeroClix tourney was running. The owner brought me over a couple people looking to play something new, so I gave them the Pyramid 101 spiel and then we played Ice Dice, Martian Coasters and WW5. They seemed to enjoy the games but moved on to play some board games. I had a sign up sheet for Cadet training, but no one seemed to want to make a commitment to…Continue

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…Continue

Had a great time, played some pyramid games and got 3 people started on the syllabus! Looking forward to Dirigo getting its in-store promo kit and starting the training!

Never in my entire history of running demos have I had people waiting at the tables before I get there waiting and ready to play. I enjoyed running every type of Fluxx over this past weekend. It was quite an amazing…Continue

The jitters from the espresso fueled mayham still burns... LOL
Last weekend a local coffee shop had a semi regular gamming night that they are trying to make monthly. Not knowing this when I arrived but having a copy of Star Fluxx with me in my backpack the game night was about to begin and with 5 people there it was decided the game of the night would be Star Fluxx... 3 of the 5 people me and 2 others had played Fluxx games before so it was the easiest game for the others to learn. …Continue
My wife and I showed up at Gamerz game store a little before noon. I was scheduled to run Looney Labs games from noon-4:00 and 5:00-9:00 and she was running Steve Jackson games for the same period. There was a table set up for me with a sign listing what I would be running (Looney Pyramids, Fluxx, Chrononauts, Back to the Future). I set out a bunch of pyramids, including having a board set up for Caldera, and also my Fluxx, Chrononauts, BTTF, Seven Dragons, and Aquarius.

This event was not as successful as I had hoped, but may have been due to the fact that people did not know what it was. Early on, I had a few people show up and play some Pyramid games, but then it dulled a bit. The second hour brought a group who wanted to play Cthulhu Fluxx (I said it was popular) which included a couple other Game Techs, so I joined in. We had a pretty good game..I was utterly crushed, and everyone had a good time. I randomly gave out a copy of...Cthulhu Fluxx! Maybe…Continue
I will make this one post even though it was 3 sessions. Note to self...next year, plan more time and and allow time for set up and take down. Between sessions I had people waiting for the last to end and me to set up the next.
The event was quite popular and mostly filled with people who had never played or had only just got their first 'Mids.
I have to say running this was a bit overwhelming as a new Game Tech and only having taught my kids and close friends. As people picked…Continue
As I had mentioned in a previous post, people love Are You a Werewolf?. This group was no exception. Preregistration slots filled up fast, and we had people show up and wait for slots to open at the table for a chance to play. Bart Janssens showing up to moderate with his new Deluxe version of the game made the evening even more fun! After several rounds of fun (well past our allotted time) we broke for the night. There were a few AYaW games that went on throught the weekend in openplay…Continue

Cthulhu Fluxx...as was once mentioned in Kovalic's Dork Tower, add cthulhu to anything and it will sell. This was the most asked about Fluxx game all weekend and popular with all who played. I gave away two copies over the weekend.
Other than this game was preregistered to the limit before the con, there is not much more to say besides "YOU ARE DOOMED! CTHULHU WINS! MWUHAHAHAHAHAHA!
I will have to do more tables next year.…Continue

Well better late than never. I caught up with things at work so it's time to report events from WhosYerCon.
Fluxx was a big hit and we even did some impromptu pick up games throughout the weekend. The 4.0 sessions had a total of 9 players(one showed up late), so we did two groups. Only two players were experienced so I put one in each group (thanks guys!) Everyone picked up the game really fast and seemed to enjoy it, as all played several hands. I did a random die roll and…Continue

This year's Gamestorm (a 4-day-con) saw Fluxx hit the beach running. My wife (the game tech who shall never post for herself) ran four sessions 2-hours each. Each started with a different version of Fluxx but once that game was done a new one was started - with the players choosing the version. Our sessions were named:
Monty Python FLUX Madness
Zombie Horde of the FLUXX
Fluxx Madness of the Cthulhu
The Star FLUX capacitor
Every session was well…Continue
