Great time was had by all who stopped by the Looney Labs tables.
We original planned 2 days at about 3 hours each day.
It turned out to 5 hours on Friday (we were frozen... had to leave.. next year bring tie-dye'd sweatshirts) and 6 1/2 hours on Sunday. Lots of people kept stopping by to play and both tables were always full.
We highlighted the newest games that came out within the last year, Regular Show Fluxx, CN Fluxx, Choose One, Monster Fluxx and Loonacy. We also…Continue

Parked myself in the common areas of the dorms on Friday night after our first week back in school. Sent out the word to some gamers that I was doing games there and 5 showed up on the fly. We played Fluxx from 8pm to 1 am. Winner got to choose the next deck we would use. We played Star, Oz, Pirate, Cartoon Network, Monty Python, Fluxx 4.0, and Monster Fluxx. 3 of the players were brand new to the game. Hope to pictures soon. Pirate was the most popular until the Talk like a Pirate…Continue

Tuesday night game night continues at the spot, where we broke out into a 7 player game of Monty Python Flux followed by what we had hoped would be a short game of Star Fluxx ... both games lasted well over an hour and even the owner of the store had to get in on the fun!

This was a game day at The Spot in Newton, North Carolina put on by No Ordinary Gamers on Saturday August 30th. We had several games from different companies that were demoed for people. Some learning to play for the first time and others that were dear friends of the games.
Facebook Event: …Continue

The Second one on Friday, I had 12 people playing Ox Fluxx and a second table with 6…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
A bit late posting... But over the Christmas period I was showing my family how to play the Pyramid games, including:
Launch Pad 23
World War 5
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…Continue
