Location: Herndon, VA at a game night.
Games played: Cosmic Coasters, Fluxx 5.0
4 players in for Cosmic Coasters. None had seen/played it before. Pyramid pieces were used as tokens.
The game appeared simple at first but all players quickly realized there is a lot of depth to it, which earned it compliments. With 4 players, the game lasted about 20 minutes. As game play progressed, alliances among players developed because some players…Continue

The summer break at Sussex University is never a busy period in the year, but inspired by the success of the kickstarter, I decided that this was a good time to get some of the pyramid games other than Zendo taught to the students.
A moderate number of them already knew and were happy playing Seven Dragons, so the move to Aquarius Rising was not a hard one. Working out how to win was hard, but this has definitely struck a chord. Of all the things I've tried, this one has probably been…Continue

Location: Herndon, VA at a game night.
Games played: Treehouse
Treehouse was chosen because of its simplicity and quick gameplay. 6 different people tried Treehouse. 4 of the 6 had never seen/played it before while the other two had previously played it with me.
Players quickly learned strategy of positioning their own pieces and offensively using the Wild to change the house to prevent other players from winning. It quickly earned props…Continue

Lots of demos done this year at Comic-Con! Had a lot of people interested in the Firefly version.
Completed the 2nd annual Comic-Con Tournament on Friday. Had six people enter last year and had 8 this year!
Hello! Here is my report for a Fluxx tournament I ran at Origins games 2016. This was my first time running any Fluxx event and I actually took advantage of the lending library program that Loony labs had to offer. The theme for this years Convention was "Robots", so I thought the most appropriate Fluxx deck to run would have to be "Star Fluxx". …Continue

Some of the games that I had with me were Fluxx, Batman Fluxx, Monster Fluxx, Zombie Fluxx, Loonacy, and Choose One. I managed to snag a picture of a father and son playing Batman Fluxx.…Continue

Last night (March 16, 2016) in Norwalk, CT at Battlegrounds Gaming, I held a Looney Labs Demo Night with the Spring Launch kit.
I demoed a game of Mad Libs for 3, then Firefly Fluxx for 2. Then we had a game of Mad Libs with 4 and 2 more games of Firefly Fluxx with 2 players each.
I brought my own setup with a tie-dye tablecloth and a black Mad Science Institute lab coat.
Prizes were given out from the Warehouse Swag Bag…Continue

Introduced/Demo-ed Firefly Fluxx to a family game night last night. Most adults and kids present had played other versions of Fluxx before. The adults especially liked the Firefly version as they understood more of the references and in jokes. Everyone , even the new to Fluxx folks, were able to catch on quickly and multiple games were enjoyed.

Today, I debuted Uglydoll Loonacy and Mad Libs: The Game at my library. We had a lot of kids jump in and out of the games, especially Mad Libs, but once everyone got the hang of them, they really enjoyed them. For kids with anxiety, Uglydoll Loonacy had all the excitement of Spot It but with much less pressure, so…Continue

My local library holds a monthly game night that my husband and I recently started attending. Tonight we played Coloretto, which I found enjoyable, followed by several flavors of Fluxx and a quick round of Aquarius. First we played 4.0 but I neglected to take out my promo/extra cards and it was a little unwieldy, since my husband and I were the only ones that knew how to play. We opted to switch to Star Fluxx with no extras and that worked much better, with people catching on to strategy and…Continue

Not really a gaming 'event,' but a great time was had recently playing Choose One! I am a therapist and I had to cover several group sessions in a row this past week for some coworkers who were sick, and since I had no idea what to do at the last minute, I grabbed Choose One out of my drawer. Some of the clients present were a bit persnickety and turned their noses up at first (games are for kids, you know), but once we got going, we played for a solid two hours! There were ten of us, myself…Continue

The Fluxx Happy Hours were held Thursday and Friday after the exhibit halls closed. We sold out both of these sessions. One of the major reasons for selling out was the support we got from the booth. Batman Fluxx and Adventure Time Fluxx were in heavy rotation during the two Happy Hours. Also, Andy's appearance at Thursday's Happy Hour created a lot of excitement in the Hall.
Daniel Johnson and Dave Autzen provided help during Thursday's event and…
I didn't get to do nearly as many demos as I would have liked this year due work with the games dept but I was able to try a couple of things with Andy which were amazing. I also got to get in some games with the late night people, we played Batman Fluxx and a few others and also Loonacy(which is a personal favorite). Overall I think things went well this year, the demo team was great and they stayed fairly busy throughout the con.

My kids are attending a camp this week and decided to bring Fluux for Game Day. I was helping today and able to help explain and supervise some games. We played the CN version of Fluxx for about 45 minutes. We had a number of kids play with us that had never heard of Fluxx before ranging from 6-12. We played open-handed to help introduce the kids to type and play of different cards. There was good interest, and a wee bit of confusion in how often things change. Overall the kids that…Continue
