Looney Labs is a Friendly Little Game Company

We publish the FLUXX series of card games... it has that certain something that makes a game addictive —  when it ends, you want to play again immediately, even if you lost! Fluxx (and its various special editions) is the company's best known product, but we have published many other award-winning games that are just as addictive. OUR GAMES include time travel card games and board games featuring LOONEY PYRAMIDS, innovative pyramid-shaped gaming pieces useful for hundreds of different games. 

Looney Labs Games are well distributed in specialty game stores. Visit our STORE LOCATOR to find the store nearest you that sells our games, or you can also buy directly from our ONLINE STORE.

   The company was founded in 1996 by Kristin and Andrew
   Looney, a husband and wife team that gave up successful
   careers as aerospace engineers (they met while working at 
   NASA) to pursue their hobby business full time... they could
   tell early on the true hit potential this little card game Fluxx 
   had, so they took the jump off the cliff and quit their day jobs, 
   so they could dedicate all their energy to making and 
   promoting Andy's games. You can read about OUR HISTORY 
   on these pages, and for even more details, you can poke 
   around in the archives of our BLOGS — we have been 
   creating cool stuff and talking about it online since the very 
   enjoy your journey through our many web pages.
