Looney Labs Rare Items Raffle
 
We have a table piled high with rare items from Looney Labs history that we will be giving away over the course of this anniversary year. Out of print games, interestingly colored pyramids, uncut sheets of Aquarius cards, various promo cards, Andy's old LARP equipment... all sorts of fun stuff.
 

Raffle #1 (of 4) is underway! 

SIGN UP for a free GLEAM account to track your tickets. There are over 75 tasks you can complete this quarter to earn raffle tickets, and some can be done multiple times for multiple tickets! The tasks are things that will help us promote Looney Labs and our games, and the more tasks you do, the more raffle tickets you earn. There is no way to purchase raffle tickets.

3/15/21 - last day to complete tasks this quarter
3/17/21 - email with bucket placement instructions sent
3/28/21 - last day to adjust ticket placement in buckets
3/31/21 - winners will be randomly selected and notified 
4/08/21 - raffle #2 begins (sorry... we got delayed by a few days from the original plan)

What's a bucket raffle, you ask? It is a raffle version in which you get to decide which prize(s) your raffle ticket(s) try to win for you.  This first round will have 25 buckets, which will be announced and promoted throughout the quarter in posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram - and will be posted in the chart below as they become known. 
 
Congratulations to all who won a prize! You will be receiving an email confirmation shortly and your prizes will be shipped in the next two weeks. For those who did not win this round, another round will start on Sunday! 
 
IMPORTANT MESSAGE: It has come to our attention that an error occurred during the prize draws. We have double, triple, and quadruple checked and are certain this error only affected one bucket--the Electric Yellow Pyramids. All tickets earned were reported correctly, all other bucket winners were reported correctly, but a shift occurred in the spreadsheet just before we drew the electric yellow winners which caused 14 peoples' tickets to get shifted to other people's rows. We are very sorry for this error and very thankful to Isaac Arellano for his honesty in pointing out that he hadn't put any tickets in electric yellow so couldn't have won. This led to the detection and correction of the error. For that help, we are going to send Isaac a box of chocolates (the bucket he put all his tickets in). We are also going to let the other four reported electric yellow winners (who did have tickets in that bucket) keep those electric yellows, and add four additional sets to ensure that the five who were the rightful winners also get their prizes. So you will see that the total number of prizes increased to 75, with electric yellow going from 5 to 9 and chocolates going from 1 to 2. We hope this satisfies all participants that we have correctly handled the problem, and we apologize for the error!

Seven Dragons is finally being re-released, but very little is being changed. (The only change for the new version is that the green dragon-rider will have a slightly less revealing dress.) So this one is really meant for the collectors!

Vintage Cloth Pyramid Bag

This is a single Icehouse bag from the early pyramid days pre-Looney Labs existing. Note the company name of Icehouse Games, Inc. This is the type of bag that the wooden pyramids ("Xyloid") were packaged with. This does NOT include any pyramids... it's just the bag.

Andrew Looney's Interactive Literature Souvenir Sampler Packet

This is a sealed envelope full of some artifacts of some of the Interative Literature games he helped write and organize back in the 80s, before such games became known as LARPs. This is one of the last of such packets Andy made to sell on eBay long ago. This page contains a more detailed description of this artifact.

Q-Turn Wooden Coins

This is a reconstructed copy of Q-Turn, one of 21 sets which Andy assembled from leftover parts in early 2021. The mix of 16 wooden nickels doesn't quite match the original game (details decribed on the insert you can read in the photo) and it comes in a plastic bag instead of a tube, but otherwise it's exactly the same as a copy of the original game -- including the rulesheet and 4 bingo chip game tokens.
