Looney Labs...

From Kristin Looney:

I just started pitching our games to thinkgeek.com, and I
have been telling the buyer that geeks love our games. We
were guests of honor a a Linux conference once, and Fluxx
and pyramid games are common at such geeky conventions!

so I thought I would put a call out to this list for a
few geek specific testimonials to send them - to help
convince them that our games would be a good fit for
their web site. Anyone want to take a crack at telling
me what it is that makes our games good geek gifts?

Thanks for helping us get more geeks access to our games!


Looney Labs are the makers of Fluxx, Chrononauts, IceHouse, TreeHouse, and a few more... anyone have any geek testimonials to share?

This is yesal if you don't know me, but I totally have a testimonial for you, and I hope it helps.

My friends and I had formed a group originally to play D&D, but things were getting a little too busy for all of us to play or plan any campaigns, but we still had an urge to hang out and game together. We had tried video games before, but they get muddled as the group that was playing constantly shifted.

Finally, one of my friends decided that one night when we'd planned to go to Denny's, he'd bring out Fluxx. Well, we tried it, and we ended up really liking it. Thus, we decided that certain nights when we got together, we would play card and/or board games. As our nights of these games progressed, we were introduced to Chrononauts, TreeHouse, and Aquarius, the last of which is a current favorite. These game nights also helped to bring our group a little closer especially to the friend who started the whole thing.

So thanks, Looney Labs, for some really awesome games and for helping us to come together.

Hi hi!

That's totally grand -- I'll link the Looney folks direct to your post, if you don't mind.

Hey, are you signed up on the Looney Labs website, any of you? There's a ton of great mailing lists, you can get Rabbit points just for signing up and posting a picture, and as a Blab Rabbit all you're signing on to do is to tell people how awesome the game is, if it comes up. They're such great folks there, I gotta recommend the community.

That's fine. Hee.

I'm not sure. The one friend who started all this might be, but I'll definitely have to tell him about it and maybe a few of my other friends. Thanks!
