All Event Reports (273)

Finally!!! (On a few levels and with surprises)

We had 8 participants at the Regular Show Fluxx event at Comic Paradise Plus in Fairmont, West Virginia, on release day, July 25, 2014.

This was the first event I ran for Lonney Labs, but I have been demoing games for around 20 years, including being at the first Origins where Lonney Labs was to release FLUXX.

I originally learned about this game when searching for possible games for my sons, especially Alex who is really started to come of age to play games, related to Regular…

I didn't know my mother was an auctioneer

I just got a copy of Lunacy and I decided I wanted to try it out. Before demoing it at conventions. So, I made my boyfriend - who is only into computer shooter games - and my mother try it.

I learned several things. For starters, my mother doesn't know what any of the cards are. (The deck doesn't have a golf ball or a boy, they're the moon and lady liberty respectively.) Also, at some point we started calling the alien an eyeclopse.

I also learned that as my mother gets more into the… Continue

Not what I expected (in a good way)

So, most of my friends own a copy (or every copy) of Munchkin, so I decided that buying one was a little silly (at least two of them keep their copies in their cars, and these are the ones I always game with), so I bought Monty Python Fluxx.  What I didn't realize at the time was how often we'd want to play it.

It's not that unusual for us to…

Fluxx Demos at Paradise Games

Got in contact with a local game store, called Paradise Games, to see about running a few demos for Fluxx for them one night. They hadn't heard of the game, at the time, but were okay with letting me run the event.

The downside? Between the weather being a rainy/thundery mess all day, and the timing/scheduling (people showing up late, another popular game's tournament being scheduled 1.5 hours later), not as many people showed up as I had hoped. The store had ~20 people total…

Network Gaming Executives at OSUIT in Okmulgee

We just finished up our first demo of the Regular Show Fluxx at our LAN Party.  We put on LAN parties for the students at the Institute 1 to 2 times a month.  The LAN Party itself had about 30 participants.  We are in the summer term so attendance is lower than normal.  About a third of them actually played the game while almost all of came by to see what it was about.  Many were already familiar with Fluxx from previous LAN Parties where we have played many variations of Fluxx.  Few of…

Fluxx night (private demo)

I spent the week this week "babysitting" my niece(17) and nephew(13) with my wife while their parents were out of town. I took a collection of games over with me including Zombie, Pirate, and Cthulhu Fluxx with the intention of teaching the kids how to play some games and getting them interested in the hobby by showing them there was more to board games and card games than "Go Fish" and Monopoly out there. The four of us sat down for the night and I broke out Fluxx to get everyone started…

Fluxx for one. Or maybe more. (July 18th at a Sheetz)

What was initially just me introducing and teaching the game to a friend, in anticipation of an actually planned demo event later this month, became a rather impromptu demo event itself.

It was a local service station chain (Sheetz, for those familiar). We got our food, sat at one of the tables, and out came the normal Fluxx 4.0. This attracted a few glances and, then, outright watchers. I passed up a few opportunities to win the game, instead drawing out the randomness of the…

First demo of Regular Show Fluxx

At the end of a day of games of assorted levels of weight, I brought out the Regular Show Fluxx that had arrived that day.  Everyone was familiar with Fluxx, but no one (not even me) had seen many episodes of that cartoon, so several of the individual cards were mystifying.  A couple of the players were somewhat familiar because they have kids who watch it.

After the actual game was over, we looked through the rest of the cards to see what they were.  No one understood things like…

Pyramids at a private event

This was kind of a dry run for me as I've never hosted a games event before and I didn't have any formal materials with me—just IceDice, three Treehouse sets, and the board and rules card from Pink Hijinks.  (I deliberately didn't bring the pink nests I'm now lobbying to call a "short stash".)  Academy stuff was mentioned, but again this was done without formal materials.  :)

We started with IceDice because I consider it to be the modern "base set" for pyramid gaming.  Since there…

Zendo at Who's Yer Con

I ran three scheduled 2-hour sessions of Zendo at Who's Yer Con last weekend in Indianapolis. Fellow Looney Labs game tech Bart Janssens joined my for several of these. We also played a couple of other unscheduled Zendo games.

Friday at 5:00 I had three other players, Bart and two newbies. Saturday at noon I had a group of three adults and two kids. They already owned some pyramids and were interested in learning more pyramid games. I think…

Pyramids Demo

A bit late posting... But over the Christmas period I was showing my family how to play the Pyramid games, including:

Martian Coasters

Launch Pad 23

Pink Hijinks

Zark City

World War 5

IceDice

Treehouse

Pharoah

Martian Chess

The favourites were Martian Coasters, IceDice, and Treehouse, and the least favourite was Martian Chess. People really enjoyed IceDice, with many people being caught out to shouts of "go…

Chrononauts Demo

We've been taking along fun, quick (ish!) games to our regular Magic the Gathering play group, at Fanboy 3 in Manchester, so this week I decided to take along Chrononauts.

It didn't take too long show the group how to play the game, and everyone picked it up really quickly, and the game lasted well over an hour! People enjoyed the strategy, and the stories on the cards (which we read out when we won). 

There's a plan do play Uberchrononauts next time, as I now…

Fluxx Demo

As I play Magic the Gathering with a regular play group at our local game store Fanboy 3 in Manchester, I decided to introduce them to some simpler, quicker games that we can play when we need a break from Magic.

Firstly, I introduced them to Fluxx 3.0 (I tend to keep the older versions of Fluxx on me as they fit easily into a pocket of a bag - perfect for Fluxx emergencies!). They quickly got the hang of that, so then I introduced them to creepers with Zombie Fluxx. The one…

Choose One Demo

Got a chance to run my first Choose One demo with friends last Sunday. Our SciFi and Fantasy Book group decided to meet up for a Sunday afternoon boardgame session at our local pub. After a couple of longer boardgames, everyone wanted something without a lot of rules to learn, so I broke out the Choose One.

A group of 7 of us played for over 2 hours (with 4 observers at one point), and much laughter was had! We had to skip a few cards, as some of the cards were felt to be a…

Gallifrey One -A great surprise for the 25th year!

February 14-16, 2014 at LAX Marriott in Los Angeles saw in the 25th annual convention of Gallifrey One, celebrating the last 50 years of all things Dr. Who. Of COURSE there were at least a couple of different Fluxx games in play throughout the weekend, except for when my Monty Python version went to be signed by Andy Looney. The best surprise EVER was when Kristin and Andy walked into the game room I was running on Saturday night and introduced Loonacy, a small travel Fluxx and had congoers…

Gaymer X

I just realized that I never did an Event Report for Gaymer X!  What was I thinking???

Gaymer X was the first ever gaming convention specifically for LGBT folks, and was held in San Francisco on August 3rd and 4th, 2013.  This was my first gaming convention ever as well, so I can't compare it to others.  But I have been told that it was one of…

Choose One Demo Three

I got my third chance to demo Choose One on Saturday, November 2, 2013.  Some friends and I have a monthly game day, and we were looking forward to trying this newest Looney Labs game, as we have enjoyed several others in the past.  Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts made this group smaller than usual this month, with only three participants.  But we still had a great time!

Positive comments:

--"Cool bag!"

--Enjoyment of the game pieces.  One participant:…
