Pyramids and Fluxx. While most people outside the hobby would not associate these words together, long-time fans of Looney Lab’s games know that Kristin and Andy Looney have turned these words into expansive worlds and games. Founded in 1996, Looney Labs is best known for its Fluxx card games that have spanned themes ranging from Cthulhu Fluxx to Cartoon Network Fluxx to Firefly Fluxx. Looney Labs has also developed the Looney Pyramids, a game system that uses colorful pyramids as the foundation for playing an expansive library of games published by Looney Labs and other enthusiasts on the internet. In 2016, Looney Labs successfully launched a Kickstarter campaign for Pyramid Arcade, an anthology with components to play 22 classic Looney Library games. Andy referred to Pyramid Arcade as his magnum opus, a sentiment shared by an ecstatic review of the set from the Dice Tower’s Tom Vasel.
In addition to serving as WashingCon 2 sponsors, Andy and Kristin attended last year’s con and participated in Andy versus Everybody. The event, which was one of the most popular ones at WashingCon 2, had Andy play different games against against over ten players – at the same time. In between meeting fans and taking on a room of gamers, WashingCon had a chance to sit down with Andy to talk about the evolution of Looney Labs, the development of Pyramid Arcade, and news about upcoming products that the company will be releasing in the future. WashingCon would like to thank Andy, Kristin, and the rest of Looney Labs for supporting our convention and work.
