Looney Labs News

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!



Our 2018 Holiday Gift is a print-n-play Looney Pyramids game called ICETOIDS! 

In IceToids, a gameboard is created out of 16 special tiles. The symbols are hidden at first and are gradually revealed as players explore the board. Be the first to position your three pieces on the three tiles that display the icon of your color. 

2-4 players can play! Equipment needed: 16 IceToids tiles + 3 pyramids per player.

ICETOIDS rules  <-- the rules PDF

ICETOIDS Print-n-Play <-- print doubleside on cardstock, cut out tiles & tokens (in case you don't have pyramids)

Deluxe ICETOIDS Tiles <-- high quality tiles produced on demand by The Game Crafter. A printed copy of the rules and the Pyramid Arcade-style card for IceToids is included. The tiles that replace pyramids in the print-n-play version are not included.

Thanks for playing our games! 

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...

Zendo Will Be in Stores Soon!

After years of refinement and playtesting, we are proud to present our new vision of this popular 2003 classic.

The new Zendo is available for pre-order now! 

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!


Nano for NaNoWriMo!

Attention Writers! NaNoWriMo is just around the corner, so it’s time to be gearing up and getting ready!
Yes, November is National Novel Writing Month, for those creative souls ready to motivate themselves to hammer out a new novel by writing a little each day during Month #11. Because sometimes, when you’re trying to get the creative juices flowing, you need the type of structure and restrictions that NaNoWriMo provide.
If you plan to take the NaNoWriMo challenge, or just want to support those who are taking the plunge, our story-telling card game, Nanofictionary, can help get the juices flowing!    <READ MORE>

We Make Games That Teach

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!
