Looney Labs Games

I can't get enough of board games. I play everything from the typical to the vintage to the indie games. Back in the day, when I lived in Columbus, I couldn't wait to visit Origins in June. As if the rows of dice, collectibles, and books weren't enough to get me there, board games abounded in the aisles.  Hallways and tables throughout the convention center were scattered with game pieces, figs, and cards.

Eventually, I came across the Looney Labs booth and after a demo (or two, or three) from the Mad Lab Rabbits, I picked up a deck of Fluxx.  It was like crack in a cardboard box.  So addictive was this game that even our D&D group stopped rolling the dice and flipped cards for a few weekends instead.  And that says a lot.

Looney Labs is an independent game company founded by Andrew Looney and Kristin Looney.  Fluxx, the card game with ever changing rules, is just the beginning of the Looney Labs addiction.  It's a fine game to start with.  I mean, it did win a Mensa Mind Games Select award.  But then you might want to pick up a stack or two of pyramids and a rulebook for endless strategy gaming.  You can even time travel with a deck of Chrononauts or roleplay with a deck of Are You A Werewolf?  Now that I live with someone who doesn't love games as much as I do, I really appreciate that a few of their games can be single player too.  If you come across their stuff in a retail store, pick something up.  Any of the games will do because they are all highly creative.  Then once you're hooked, visit their website and buy more.

    Was also introduced to Shadows Over Camelot by Days of Wonder (http://www.daysofwonder.com/shadowsovercamelot/en/).

    And, and, and! Last Night on Earth! Who can resist brain-starved zombies as you fumble through buildings looking for weapons. Brrrraaaainssssss....

    1. Đế phẩm đan dược ở giữa chênh lệch tựu giống như Đấu Thánh cùng Đấu Đế chênh lệch. Không phải linh hồn chi lực cùng thực lực đạt tới Đấu Đế Luyện dược sư có thể đấy!

      Nhớ ngày đó, chính mình từng tận mắt thấy qua một quả Đế phẩm Sồ Đan biến ảo thành Đà Xá Cổ Đế bộ dáng cùng trên Đấu Khí đại lục cao cấp nhất ba vị Cửu tinh hậu kỳ Đấu Thánh chống lại!

      Bởi vậy đó có thể thấy đưdongtam

      "Ha ha, Lâm lão cứ đùa, tiểu tử hiện tại bất quá chỉ có thể luyện chế ra Cực phẩm linh đan mà thôi, về phần Đế phẩm đan dược, ha ha, tiểu tử mặc dù có tâm, nhưng vô lực a!" Tiêu Viêm cái này lời nói được có thể nói là tương đương xảo diệu, lại không thấy trực
