Review Roundup

Saturdaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Woo!
My favorite day of the week, as I can just sit back, relax, and do some gaming.
Nevermind that this week I'm vacuuming, dusting, and cleaning countertops in the den. That's important, too.

Looney Labs Announces Anatomy Fluxx

Fluxx is a game that can be nearly-infinitely reskinned to bring in new themes. But more than just adding different art, it gives the folks over at Looney Labs to come up with new mechanics to try out as well. So, what will we find in the newly-announced Anatomy Fluxx? Certainly, there's going to be a collection of various body parts to get together. Then there's the various diseases that make up the Creepers.
It's all bit Dr. Frankenstein, isn't it?

Looney Labs Announces Get The MacGuffin

In a movie, the MacGuffin is the item that the characters want to get. It's the giant diamond in Snatch. It's the Maltese falcon in... well... The Maltese Falcon. It's the briefcase in Pulp Fiction. In some movies, it's not even something that really exists. Well, Looney Labs is looking to bring the search for the MacGuffin to your tabletops in the appropriately named Get the MacGuffin card game.

Looney Labs Taking Pre-Orders for Zendo

I love logic puzzles. You're given an image or set of images and you have to figure out what's alike between them or what rules were used in creating them. Doing just that is what you'll do in Zendo. One player will create an arrangement of pieces, then the other players have to guess at what secret rule was used in its creation. You can pre-order a copy for yourself now.

Looney Labs Announces Nanofictionary Card Game

While I, obviously, am writing every day, I'm not so great at coming up with stories. I mean, I can tell you about new games and such, but to have a traditional story with characters, plot, setting, and all that, I'm pretty terrible at. Well, Nanofictionary might be able to help out. It's a new storytelling card game coming from Looney Labs.

Looney Labs Announces Math Fluxx

I was always very good at math in school. Though, to be fair, I was generally good at school in school. Some of my friends, though, not so much. Though gamers, I've found, are usually better at math, there's always room for some improvement. And if you can have a game related to that, so much the better. That's where Math Fluxx comes in. It's coming soon from Looney Labs.

Friday Snippets

It's been a long week.
Well, ok, technically it's been as long as pretty much every other week. But it seems that it really slowed down starting Wednesday afternoon. I'm certainly ready for the weekend, anyway. Gotta refuel in order to make it there, though. So I'm going to chow down on some bite-size gaming stories. Don't worry. I'll share.

Shiny: A Review of Firefly Fluxx

Raise your hand if you’re a fan of Firefly. *watches pretty much everyone’s hand go up* Yeah, me, too. I actually have been meaning to get those DVDs back out and re-watch the series. It’s a sci-fi western done right. Well, now the crazy antics of the Serenity and her crew meet up with the zany rules-changing of Fluxx.

tgn-reviews_360

The fine people over at Looney Labs sent me a copy of the new Firefly Fluxx to try out.

So get ready, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time it’s Firefly Fluxx by Looney Labs. Pay attention, or by my pretty, floral bonnet, I will end you.

Uglydoll Loonacy Now Available From Looney Labs

I'm certainly no prize in terms of beauty. I'm not going to be winning any "best dressed" or "greatest hair" or "most handsome gaming news reporter" awards anytime soon. I don't know if anyone would call me an Uglydoll, though. The creatures on the new version of Loonacy from Looney Labs, though? Those are Uglydolls. But it's ok. They're used to being called that.

TGN Review: Batman Fluxx, Adventure Time Fluxx, and Fluxx Dice

Looney Labs’ Fluxx is always getting new versions coming out for it. The game where “the rules are always changing” is easily reskinned to fit different themes. I’ve personally played 6, not counting the two (and a partial) that are in this review. But rather than just different pictures on the cards, Looney Labs really does try and make the sets act and play differently. Did they succeed with Batman Fluxx and Adventure Time Fluxx? And what about these Fluxx Dice? Well, that’s what we’re here to talk about today.

So kick that creeper to the side, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time it’s Batman Fluxx, Adventure Time Fluxx, and Fluxx Dice.
