ABOUT MY HISTORY WITH LOONEY LABS...
I found Looney Labs because a friend introduced me to Fluxx. Actually, I found the website several years ago because I was doing research on games and recognized that I'd found the place that made Fluxx. I had arrived at the website because of the pyramids as I was looking for games that could be used to invent new games. I sure found that, and how! My friend and I have been working on a version of Tafl, or Viking Chess, that uses pyramids, and it's been both challenging and super fun!

I managed to do several demonstrations at a local store and on a University campus or two. I've been getting people to play with pyramids and had good success at that.

I played Icebreaker on a 3DO system when it first came out, and I recently picked up a copy of the game for the 3DO system that was gathering dust in my closet. I remember how one of my friends decribed that game as, "One of the strangest games I've ever played." I had no idea that I would, years later, be playing with physical pyramids! Moreover, when I introduced my little brothers to Icebreaker 2, one exclaimed, "This is the most intense shooter I've ever played!"

Here's a list of the games I play with my Looney Pyramids, which I keep handy, in no particular order, except the first: Icehouse, IceTowers, Zendo, Treehouse, Martian Chess, Martian Coasters, World War 5, Gnostica, Zarcana, Volcano, Pharaoh, Homeworlds, RAMbots, Twin Win ...
HOW DID YOU LEARN ABOUT LOONEY LABS?
I'm a guy who sometimes wears hats.

More importantly, I know which came first, the chicken or the egg. I am also the founder of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Pumpkins.
LOONEY LABS GAMES I PLAY/PROMOTE:
Fluxx, Looney Pyramids, Time Travel Games, Aquarius, Are You a Werewolf?, Are You The Traitor?
