Overview: Starship Captains


Andy Looney and his friends have been playing and inventing games for these pyramids for more than 20 years! There is a huge variety of games, some are quick and easy, others require strategy and more time. There are literally hundreds of pyramid games to choose from. A fan of the Looney Pyramids, who knows how to play at least ten games, is known as a Starship Captain. Until you know ten games, you will be known as a Space Cadet. you can call yourself a First Class Space Cadet as soon as you know 3 or more games. Please join the Starship Captain FaceBook Page to meet other Starship Captains. 


Cadet Training

Looney Labs has developed a Cadet Training program to help pyramid fans enlist more pyramid fans. We have an amazing group of Starship Captains that are registered as Game Technicians who regularly demo Looney Labs games, including the Looney Pyramids gaming system. These Starship Captains host training sessions to teach other Cadets to play ten pyramid games so that they too can call themselves Starship Captains. The ten games taught in the training course are all fun, easy games designed by Andy Looney, the creator of the card game Fluxx. If you love Fluxx, you should definitely try Looney Pyramids games!
