When is Doctor Who Fluxx going up for preorder? When will Zendo be available at stores? How do I get the 2017 Holiday Gift? These are just some of the questions we get from you, our fans, on a daily basis. That’s why we try and stay active on all our social media pages: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! On these pages, you’ll learn about new releases, their time tables, promotions we have, what we’re playing, and all sorts of other fun stuff… including random contests!
And since we’re Looney Labs, we’re going to do a little experiment – a fun way to engage with each other on all the social media sites. It’s one of those random comments previously mentioned! Here’s what you do: find the post on each platform that has the message: Fluxx Back Tuesday (and looks like the picture in the bottom left corner of the above image). Like/heart the post and then comment: SurPRIZE me! Just copy/paste that as a comment. We’ll pick one person on each platform to win a super awesome mystery prize. We don’t know what it will be yet, but we’re pretty sure you’ll love it.
So go to your favorite social media platform (Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram), like our page if you haven’t already, find the post we mentioned above, and comment the secret phrase. On Friday, October 20, we’ll pick one winner on each platform to win a special mystery prize! Because other than this newsletter, our social media pages are the best places to learn what’s going on at Looney Labs!
Andy Looney: man, mystery, award-winning game designer, hippie, Emperor of the Universe, time traveler, writer, programmer, activist, photographer, and… artist! That’s right, some of the art you know and love in Looney Labs games was created by Andy!
Not only did Andy design such wonderful games as the original Fluxx, Chrononauts, Early American Chrononauts, and Math Fluxx, but he also drew all the art for them! Numbers, time machines (really fast, teeny tiny, extra large, very clean, or super deluxe), cookies, dreams, music, and the cutest little lunar lander on the moon – all these things and more have illuminated Looney Labs games thanks to the artistry of Andy Looney. So, if you ever get to meet Andy and want to thank him, give him some cake (he loves cake)!
This month’s shirt design is really cool. It will be available for preorder for the next two weeks for only $20! Get it on preorder now, so you can get it on your body later!
Kristin and Andy will be running games and looking forward to talking to YOU in their own con-within-a-con space, the Looney Lounge!

Come play Pyramid Arcade, Loonacy, Just Desserts, and ALL the Fluxxes with the Looneys!
PAX Unplugged will be an exciting analog-focused extension of our already existing portfolio of PAX events. The creators of PAX found that the Tabletop parts of PAX had grown and grown to the point where they said, “You know what? Let’s make a show that’s just that.”
Kristin Looney and her assistant, Laurie, will once again be bringing some fun to the Dice Tower Cruise! This year they plan to play a lot of Zendo, along with pyramid games, board games, and card games galore!
The Dice Tower is excited to announce its second annual Dice Tower Cruise! This is a 5 day, 4 night cruise leaving from Fort Lauderdale, Florida and traveling to Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico. Food, fun, prizes, and 24-hour-a-day gaming! This is a unique experience you won’t want to miss!
Q: How do you feel about being this month’s Featured Artist?
A: Actually, I feel kind of awkward about it… like it’s a little too self-indulgent or something. But everyone else liked the idea, so OK! (shrug)
