As we begin 2019, we are very excited to announce to you all that this year for Looney Labs will be the Year of Time Travel! A big thanks to all the Time Travelers who have shown up for the occasion; you already know just how amazing this year will be! Some of you we last saw at the releases of Chrononauts and Early American Chrononauts. (Oh, you just came from there? Er, then? Thank you!)

Of course, it’s always a pleasure to see you, Doctor Who. Are you enjoying your new body? Yes, well for us it was technically last year we celebrated two of your forms in our special Coin and Doctors pack. But don’t worry, our fans will get to see more of the 13th Doctor in an expansion pack later this year! Star Trek Time Ship Aeon, thank you for coming, but we are still playtesting your version of Chrononauts. Do we call it Chrono-Trek? No, don’t break the Temporal Prime Directive. Those of us who experience time linearly will just have wait until GenCon to learn more.

Time Repair Agents, there is cake in the break room for you! Congratulations on finally capturing the Time Breaker. For us, it’s still about a month away from the official release date; February 28th. Wait, are you the ones responsible for letting local game stores get a demo copy of the game ahead of time? Maybe focus on catching chrono-criminals. Oh, he’s escaped again? Big surprise. I guess we’ll have to go with Plan C, which has a Time Traveler in reserve.

Time Breaker releases February 28, 2019. Our Fluxx titles are easy to convince game stores to buy, but non-Fluxxes often don’t get the attention they deserve. You can help us by calling or visiting your friendly local game store today and ordering your copy of Time Breaker. Store owners often buy based on whether anyone has asked for something, so your pre-order with them truly can make a difference in the success of this game. And if your local store already has it on order, they might already have an early demo copy for you to come play with!  If they order soon, they can still get an early demo copy, so please call your local store today. THANK YOU!

Early copies also means early reviews...  the Time Breaker page has links to the rules, reviews, videos, etc.  Please check it out and get excited to own a copy of Andy's new Time Travel card game.  

Thanks for playing (and pre-ordering) our games!

Every now and then there is something we want to include in a new version of Fluxx that is just TOO silly or otherwise doesn’t fit the game. Usually these ideas are left behind on the design board or the cutting room floor. But some of them tickle us so much that we just have to make them into real cards! Now, two of these special promos are available in our webstore.

The first is Bridget, a Keeper for Firefly™ Fluxx. Since we’ve already released cards for Saffron and Yolanda, fans have been asking WHEN we will have one for her final false identity, Bridget. Well now you can get your very own!

The second is a funny Goal for Fairy Tale Fluxx. We all know the age-old question about bears and what they do in the woods, so now you have an answer: It Happens! We didn’t include it originally because Mary Engelbreit’s storybook style didn’t jibe well with our tongue-in-cheek fun on this one. But we couldn’t resist sharing the joke with you! We hope you enjo!y :)

Q: Why are you so obsessed with time travel?

A:  Time travel is my favorite subject because I love science fiction and I love history, but with time travel you get them both. Sci-fi provides the how, and history provides the where. Anyone interested in history loves the idea of being able to actually go there, particularly if one is curious to know the real story of the history. Time travel also enables trips into the future, which every sci-fi fan is eager to embark upon. If you could travel in time, you could also freeze time… oh, for the ability to do that alone! But most of all, time travel stories explore the idea of changing history, imagining the what-ifs, of being able to go do one little thing that would stop the Titanic from sinking, or prevent your own personal Hindenburg from exploding. Another reason time travel stories are always interesting is the fish-out-of-water factor. Like Alice arriving in Wonderland, time travelers typically arrive at a random point in the past or future where they may think they know what to expect, but get tripped up by small-but-important differences. With a time machine you could make an instant fortune but lose it all because you stepped on a bug. Or you could save countless lives but erase your own existence. There are just so many interesting ideas to explore in this corner of the imagination… I’ll never get tired of it.

Time Travel Mart is a convenience store for time travellers. They have 2 Southern California locations, one in Echo Park and the other in Mar Vista. They carry products from the past and the future and conveniently package them for you to take home. Love mammoth chunks but your time machine is broken and can't go back to fetch some yourself? No worries, they went back in time for you, brought it back, seasoned it, and packaged it in a can for ease.

They are also a non-profit organization called 826LA. 826LA is dedicated to supporting students with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. 826LA offers free tutoring, writing workshops, in-school projects, field trips, and publishing opportunities to students ages 6 to 18.

The proceeds from the store help to keep all these programs free for students and spark imagination in our families, students, and communities. 826LA is part of a national organization (826 National), started by Dave Eggers and Nínive (pronounced nin-eh-vay) Calegari in San Francisco.
