Welcome to Follow-Up Friday!
By this time, you know the drill. Follow-Up Friday is a chance for us to revisit the subjects of previous posts and bring the PuzzleNation audience up to speed on all things puzzly.
And for today’s blog post, we’re returning to one of my favorite subjects: puzzly events!
We’re closing in on a very special anniversary for a company PuzzleNationers know well. From Loonacy, Just Desserts, and Fluxx to Chrononauts, Mad Libs: The Game, and Pink Hijinks, many of their games have passed beneath the PuzzleNation Blog microscope!
That’s right, we’re one week away from the 20th anniversary of Looney Labs!
More specifically, it’s the 20th birthday of Fluxx, the very first Looney Labs game!
And how are the folks at Looney Labs celebrating this joyous occasion? Why, with their very own convention: LooneyCon!
From their Facebook page:
LooneyCon is a weekend long convention focused entirely on Looney Labs and our fans! What will we do at LooneyCon, you ask? We’ve got tournaments, giant game pieces, tie dying and craft projects, unpublished prototypes, and foreign language versions to try… We’re going to bring Andy’s Ice Breaker video game full console machine! Rare items will be given out… Grab your tickets before we sell out!
From July 22 to July 24, all things Looney Labs will be celebrated! They’ve got gaming tables, an auction where you can spend Looney Bucks earned during the event, rare versions of their most popular games, and the intriguing “Andy vs. Everybody” event pitting creator and game designer Andrew Looney against all comers!
So, if you’re near Chevy Chase, Maryland — or within traveling distance — reach out to them on Facebook and join in the fun!
