The game event at the toy store went well. It could have had more participants, but the kids that showed up seemed to have a lot of fun. Seven Dragons was a huge hit, so was Aquarius when I suggested trying it out, but I think they liked the artwork on Seven Dragons more.
This was a drop-in event held at the FLGS on Saturday 25th August.
Unfortunately, it was also held on a weekend of non-stop torrential downpours and thunderstorms. This meant that a lot of people who would otherwise have spent the weekend utilising the store as a gamers' community centre stayed home.
On the positive side, this meant that people who were either down to work in the store or attend the Heroclix tournament at the other end of the gaming area had plenty of spare…Continue

On Saturday, August 25th I demoed my first game. It was at a large private party/gaming event & I planned ahead to share Cthulhu Fluxx. I claimed a table to set up & found several people interested right away. The first game had five players, including myself.
When I initially received my game demo kit I found some cheap 11x17 frames to hold the included promotional poster & instructional play-mat which we used to organize the draw/discard piles, new rules, etc. The…
The first of a number of games that evening. The game store owner is the one in the hat.
There is no game store where I live, but an old college friend has recently opened one near my hometown, where I visit often (Thoom! Games, Marquette, Michigan). Before the release of Cthulhu Fluxx, I visited him in…Continue
After the weekly DnD Encounter session at the local game store (Dream Wizards) fell through, I decided to try a demo of Fluxx for some of the players. Lucky enough I was able to snag four, Matt, Liam, Spencer and a guy who's name I sadly forgotten. One had some experience with Fluxx but was still some what new to the game.
The first game was mostly explaining how cards worked, but by the end of the game they had gotten the hang of it. Game two was when things got amusing and I knew I…Continue
Hello there fellow Fluxxers, Last night at our friendly neighborhood Game store ( www.battlegroundsgaming.net) , it was the regular open board game night. I was able to run 4 games of Fluxx with about 10 different people total. 3 of them had never played Fluxx before this time. So after a quick 3 minute intro , we where up and running. Most of the games ran about 4-6 rounds with one of them ending before first total round due…Continue
Every week there is an informal gathering of friends at a local restaurant. It's a great opportunity to just get together & socialize & people come & go for a couple hours. This week I brought Monty Python Fluxx. It was spotted by another Python fan & a game was started immediately.
There were five of us & we played a few games. Only one other person had previously played the game & three others had never played any variant of Fluxx whatsoever. I went over…

On Tuesday night, August 7, we did a playtest session at the Labyrinth game store on Capitol Hill. Awesome game store owner Kathleen had tweeted a lot about our impending arrival, so a bunch of fans of our games showed up to try out a few of the newest things I'm testing. We also drew in gamers from the DC chapter…Continue

Well, it was a rather disappointing afternoon, but ended up in a victory for Fluxx.
I showed up at the store around 4:45 and pulled out Cthulu Fluxx, the playmat, and put the challenge coin on the table for all to see. My lovely wife showed up at 5:00, and with some customers moving through the store, we started playing Cthulu Fluxx. Unfortunately, everyone seemed more interested in MTG rather than Fluxx :-\
After a few rounds of Cthulu, with wins alternating between my…
I had posted an announcement on Facebook and the shop's FB page, but only 3 of us were able to make it. During the 1st game, I discovered I had left some of the Creepers in the box (including Cthulhu)-OOPS!
In 4 games, we held off the forces of evil each time, though it was close. Luckily I pulled the Elder Sign to hide the Creeper that would've lost us one game. A fun time was had by all!
I'll be running it again next week, with more players. And I have to give…Continue

Did my first demo at the local games club this evening. Started gently with a single player, and over the course of the next 3 1/2 hours more joined - we ended with 6 players at the table. The Old Ones won a fair number of games, to the delight of the secret cultists!
Both people new and old to Fluxx picked the game very quickly, altogether we had a lot of fun (and chocolate cake).

I took my demo copy to my husband's family reunion. I demoed the game. Gave away a poster to the person who won the most and handed out the promo cards. Most of the people had played a version of Fluxx before, but not all. I demoded to ten people, and everyone had a good time, but the consensus unfortunately is they liked the other versions of Fluxx better. I also demoed OZ and the original. There were way to many hands where Cuthulu won and they felt there were way to many creepers. So on…Continue

Fluxx was a commonly played game but no one has yet played Oz Fluxx nor Cthulhu Fluxx yet. We played afew games of each with abit of Loony Pyramids in between. No one even knew of the Pyramids but after everything everyone wanted the two Fluxxes and a set of Ice Dice.
Interest in a supplement…Continue

August fourth Armada games had Cheating for charity, A gaming day where entrance fees for all events could be entered by bringing in food for Metropolitan Ministries a local food bank that recently lost part of it's government funding. Their shelves were almost empty.
The Cthulhu Demo Event was one of four events ran that day. Those that played the new Fluxx version enjoyed it, most were familiar with Fluxx and other Looney Labs games. Between pauses in the other events, people came…Continue

Kristin and I just got back from Otakon, an enormous Anime convention held every summer at the Baltimore Convention Center, and we had an excellent time.
This was the 3rd event we've done now with our friends at Foam Brain Games (the previous…

Description: It was my first demo of Cthulhu Fluxx . I was able to run 4 games of Cthulhu Fluxx , one with 3 people , 2 with 4 and one with 5 players. Every one there had played the base game Fluxx before last night. So it was easy describing the new mechanics of Suprise , Ungoals and the Doom Counters. It was alot of fun as Fluxx games are normally. The only downer…Continue

First of all, I want to get down my thanks for the prize support LL provided for this event. Even the organiser was a little taken aback by the sheer amount of goodies!
This convention is one of the more formal ones that I regularly demo at, but since everything is geared to making it all run as smoothly as possible, all the organisation is finished off by con time. I generally zip round the trade hall at some point in order to get some idea who's selling LL games and what their…Continue

I'd just better explain first why this convention is called 'Beer & Pretzels'. The obvious reason is that it focuses mainly on board games, with a leavening of wargaming and RPGs. The other reason, that non-UK people may not know, is that it's held in one of the great brewing towns of England and one which still has a massive brewery in operation (and the edible malt remains leave the plant via a pipe and go straight to the input area of the Marmite factory next door). The bar is…Continue
