Looney Labs Announces Marvel and Jumanji Fluxx

Feb 20, 2019

Cardinal/Spinmaster and Looney Labs are pleased to announce a new partnership to create licensed card games for all channels.

The companies are currently working on two games—Marvel Fluxx and Jumanji Fluxx.

Both companies will publish versions of the games, each in the same slightly-larger-than-typical sized box. The Cardinal version will release with a $15 MSRP for mass market, whereas the Looney Labs version will contain seven bonus cards, and will sell for $20 in specialty and hobby. In addition, both versions will display a premium poker chip style collectible turn token in a clear window on the front of the package! This is the start of a creative partnership between the two companies, which will see more jointly released games in the future.

“We are so excited about these titles! Andy has created some really innovative new cards for these versions that will keep Fluxx fans coming back for more, and partnering with Cardinal means that we will be able to introduce Fluxx, the card game of ever-changing rules, to a much broader audience than ever before,” said Kristin Looney, CEO of Looney Labs. “Our goal is for a win-win-win. Cardinal adds Fluxx to its line of classic card games, Looney Labs reaches a larger audience, and specialty retailers not only get to sell a special version, but they will hopefully experience a sea change in the level of demand for Fluxx products.”

The Looney Labs versions will release in July of this year and the Cardinal versions will release in August. Look for them in stores everywhere!

     

Looney Labs Announces Time Breaker

Jan 26, 2019

Looney Labs Announces Time Breaker, a cutting-edge, catastrophically chronological competition.

It’s a chase across time to catch a chrono-criminal!

The Time Breaker is running amok in time, jumping from one tile to another, each representing a different year. In this fast-paced card game, you must carefully navigate the time-stream to find and arrest the Time Breaker. Then, return with them to Time Repair HQ before your opponents catch up or the Time Breaker slips away. Good luck, Agents!

You work in the security division of the Time Repair Agency (TRA). As you know, changing history is a crime, so our job is to apprehend the Time Breaker currently at large. Unfortunately, we don’t have a good description of the perp, so we’re using a cube to represent them. The sooner we can capture this Time Breaker, the less damage they’ll be able to do to the Time-Space Continuum. Therefore, whoever bringsin this dangerous criminal will earn a bonus and maybe even get a promotion. Quick everybody, into your Time Machines!
Players: 2 – 5
Playtime: 10 – 40
Ages: 8 – Adult
MSRP: $25.00

Zendo Available for PreOrder Now from Looney Labs

Nov 3, 2017
After years of refinement and playtesting, Looney Labs are proud to present their new vision of this popular 2003 classic.

The new Zendo is available for pre-order now from Looney Labs!

For those who’ve never played Zendo, it’s an inductive logic game in which one person serves as Moderator, and sets forth examples of arrangements of pieces (Structures) which either follow, or do not follow, a secret Rule. Players take turns building additional Structures and learning whether or not they also follow the secret Rule. The first player to officially guess the secret Rule wins!

The new Zendo still has Pyramids, since pyramids are so cool, but they are joined by Blocks and Wedges, all in just one size.  The pieces are made of the same beautiful clear plastic as our pyramids, in three vivid colors, with plenty of each type to build Structures with.
The set also includes a deck of 40 secret Rule cards, labeled by difficulty, for the Moderator to use. These cards generate multiple distinct rules (plastic clips are used to mark the current selections) such that more than 200 different rules are possible.

Looney Labs Announces Math Fluxx

February 18th, 2017

Looney Labs has announced the release of Math Fluxx on March 9th, 2017.

The Numerical Card Game with Ever-Changing Rules!

Math Fluxx really is all about the numbers. Players use positive integers (whole numbers) in their quest to achieve a very mathematical Goal. But it’s not just putting 4 and 2 together to achieve the 42 Goal (for example); Math Fluxx also features the Plan B Meta Rule. Plan B puts Special Victory Rules into play which give you a second way to win and require even more arithmetical acumen (ex. Plus Victory lets you win if your Keepers add up to the current Goal). With Math Fluxx, the fun is exponential!

Uglydoll Loonacy available from Looney Labs

March 14th, 2016

Uglydoll Loonacy, the Maniacal Matching Card Game from Looney Labs is available now.

Uglydolls like to have fun. When Babo, OX, Wage, Ice-Bat, and all the rest aren’t busy working, they love playing the fast-paced matching game: Loonacy. And now that Loonacy has been imported into the Uglyverse (through Ugly Port Harbor, of course), it’s become Uglydoll® Loonacy!

Players start with a hand of seven cards, and, as fast as they can, without any turns, they rush to play their cards onto the open piles on the table. The more players, the fewer the piles, so competition is fierce!  The first player to empty their hand is the winner!  If the frantic rush of card playing comes to a halt because nobody can play, everyone draws a card to their hand, so you might find yourself on the brink of victory, only to be saddled with extra cards.
