For adventurers, Avengers, and everyone in between - Marvel Fluxx and Jumanji Fluxx are coming, and we’re so excited we can hardly stand it!  But WHEN, you ask? WHEN?!? There is a lot of confusion about the release date on this product, and we’re here to clear it all up!

We are very happy to announce today (Press Release) that Looney Labs has once again partnered with Playdek to make Fluxx available to smart phones and tablets everywhere. Back in 2012 we partnered with Playdek to make an electronic version of Fluxx for the iPhone. The app was awesome - Andy has played over 3000 games with fans on his phone over the last 7 years!
 
Coming July 18th, 2019, the new updated app will run on both iOS and Android and will also be coming to PC and Mac via Steam later this year.
 
The app works for 2-4 players in three modes: pass-and-play, AI opponent(s), and online play. We are particularly excited about the new chat feature! There will be both in-game and global chat interfaces. One of our goals for digital Fluxx is to allow fans to find friends worldwide to enjoy a game of Fluxx with. Being able to chat with those friends as you play is part of the fun. We’re looking forward to playing a game of digital Fluxx with you!

 

Cardinal / Looney Labs Partnership

We are announcing a partnership with Cardinal Industries to produce exciting new versions of Fluxx!
 
Looney Labs will sell a specialty edition with 7 bonus cards not found in Cardinal's mass market edition. Both versions will display a premium poker chip style collectible turn token in a clear window on the front of the package!
 
 
Look for both titles to hit stores this summer!

On November 23, 2017 we will release our newest variety of Fluxx, featuring one of our most-requested themes: Doctor Who!
 
So what will Doctor Who Fluxx contain? The Doctor, of course, in as many different incarnations as we could squeeze in! We’ve got everyone from the first Doctor all the way up to the twelfth. But not the 13th… she’s still in the process of regenerating! But we’re already planning a promo card appearance for her later. (Same with the War Doctor.)
 
What makes all these Doctors particularly fascinating is the way they interact. To begin with, since they are all the same person, many of the Goals can be satisfied with any version of The Doctor...

Looney Labs games have always been educational. Fluxx won the Mensa Select award way back in 1999!
 
We are coming out with so many new educational games this year that we decided we needed a catalog and website dedicated to all our brain-building options. Please take a look at our new catalog and website!
