SpongeBob is reeeaaadddyyyyy, are you? Gen Con Online starts this Thursday, July 30th and runs through Sunday, August 2nd, and we'd love to see you there! Badges are FREE this year, and you can attend from the comfort of your own home, so let's make this the biggest Gen Con yet!

We will be releasing our newest Fluxx, SpongeBob Fluxx, as a Gen Con release at the show. You can pick it up along with hundreds of other Gen Con releases at the Gen Con online store, or you can grab it from your local game store. SpongeBob Fluxx is simple and silly and adorable, just like SpongeBob himself. And you'll get a collectible coin and seven extra cards as well!

Once you've grabbed your new releases, you'll want to check out the events... there are over 6,000 of them, so you'll have plenty to choose from! Whether you want to play a game, chat with a designer, watch a livestream of the Board Game Geek crew showing off the new offerings, or participate in a Pandemic tournament, Gen Con Online has got you covered.

And in between all your events, please stop by and see us at our "booth" in the Looking Glass. There you will find this schedule of Looney Labs events. Only one made it into the official Gen Con Online schedule, but we've got lots of opportunities to talk to the Looneys, learn a new game, or grab an autograph.

Do you really want to attend, but you're not sure about the technology involved? Not to worry... it's all free, takes little time to set up, and the folks at Gen Con have got an entire video tutorial series for you. See you there!

Although our website is always a work in progress, we've made some significant advances in the last month, and have a few more things planned as well!

First, Andy has created SIXTY new pages related to the Looney Pyramid system! You will now find a Home Page, information about the Meta Rules of the system as well as the Rules for each of 54 featured games for the system, Equipment details, a History of the system, and a page dedicated to the Community of players. Whew! He's been busy! And so has Alison, who helped him with layout, and quite a few fans in the Starship Captains Facebook group who helped find pictures and other information. Congratulations, everyone... you made a thing of beauty, and we thank you for your help!

Next came an update to the Our Games page. We now have images of each game, with links to more information. You can see all the games alphabetically, or divided by type of game, or you can just look at the current best sellers. Nice work, Kristin and Craig! A thing of beauty!

Next, Andy also built a new landing page to tell all about Fluxx! This page replaces the old FluxxGames page and is an excellent place to point folks to if they want to know what Fluxx is.

We still have one more update Craig is working on. We're not sure if we can pull it off, so we'll keep it secret for now, but we're hoping it will be a beautiful upgrade to our home page in the near future!

We look forward to seeing old friends, but are also excited at the prospect of meeting lots of new friends since this event is FREE and can be attended by anyone anywhere who has an internet connection. Please invite everyone you know and let's make this the biggest Gen Con yet!

Gen Con is known as "the best four days in gaming," and with good reason! With over 500 exhibitors and 19,000 events last year, it's no wonder that nearly 70,000 people came to play and see their friends. There's nothing quite like it... one of those bucket list kind of events for gamers... now more accessible than ever!

What have you been working on lately?

A:  Well, for one thing I’ve been spending a lot of time building the webpages described in the previous section. But I’ve been keeping busy with game design stuff, too. I can’t announce anything yet, but I do have some new Fluxxes in the works! In the past few months, I’ve built four completely new Fluxx deck prototypes (and brainstormed card lists for a couple of others) and the idea our team is the most excited about is now moving into development, with a release planned for early next year. The art is being done by Derek Ring. Derek is great, we love working with him.

By my count, the next Fluxx will be our 35th different version of the game, and while we’re keeping the subject secret for now, I will say that it’s not a licensed theme. In fact, none of the new versions I’ve been thinking up lately are for licensed properties. Although we’ve made a bunch of Fluxxes in the past few years using licenses, we’ve decided those will be enough for now.

Working with licensors is always a mixed-bag. It’s fun getting to play in someone else’s sandbox, but the approvals, royalties, contracts, and just basic day-to-day interactions with other companies that are all required to make it happen can all be quite exhausting. So, now that we’ve done a bunch of them, including some of my dream properties, most notably Star Trek, we’ve decided to return to our earlier-years mandate of focusing on parodies and public domain subject matter. And we've got some great ideas!
