Sketchbook Harvest


Gina and I are in bed eating hard pretzels and listening to Stacy. She's sitting nearby with a coke in her hand, nodding her head slowly, saying, "He sat at one end of the long table, and I sat at the other and I glared at him hatefully. I was pissed."

Sorry, I've haven't had time to watch anything new this week (other than Survivor and LA Law).

"Buy this! Buy it now! Now now now! These pieces are great. If you have an iota of creativity in you, you will no doubt come up with rules for a pretty good Icehouse game just by handling these things. I chalk it up to Pyramid Power. For those unaware, Icehouse is a set of 60 plastic pyramids: 5 in each of three sizes in each of four colors. These work rather like a deck of cards in that they can be used to play a variety of very different, incredibly addictive games unlike anything else seen by mortal men. Well, mostly unlike anything else seen." -- Paul Blake, in a 5-star review of Icehouse at

What's New?

What's Going On? Co-op Ads and Impending Events

OK, let's start with a look at this week's headlines:

  • Gen-Con Program Book to Feature Co-operatively Funded Looney Labs Ad
  • Uncut Decks Finally Shipped; Order Filling Literally Takes All Night
  • Tax and Travel Deadlines Crushing Skulls at Small Game Company
  • Impending Trade Show Shuts Company Down For Over a Week
  • Lost Rabbit Recovery Program Yields 16 Enthusiastic Bunnies

Here's a preview of a full page ad we'll be running in the Gen-Con pre-event program book, which is being mailed out to like sixty thousand gamers sometime in the next few months. As you can see, the top half of the page is about our newest games, Chrononauts and Cosmic Coasters:

Under this will appear a list of a dozen+ game stores from all around the country which currently carry our product line. Each of these stores kicked in few bucks to be listed on this page, making this is our first experiment with "co-op advertising". This mechanism is allowing us to do some much needed promotion at a time when our cashflow is tight, and it seems to be working well! Be sure to look for the ad when your Gen-Con pre-mailing arrives, and you can expect to see more co-op ads from us in the future.

I suppose I should explain those other headlines a bit more, but frankly, it's getting late and I'm too tired. We're hoping things will calm down a bit after GAMA...

Thought Residue
The last two cat fatalities we went through both involved intestinal troubles. Could this be because we've been using clumping cat litter, which I've suddenly learned may have significant health risks?

"To me, the spark of [the Hippie movement] was that there was something sort of beyond what you see everyday. It's the same thing that causes people to want to be poets instead of bankers. And I think that's a wonderful thing. And I think that this same spirit can be put into products, and these products can be manufactured and given to people, and they can sense that spirit... If you talk to people that use the Macintosh, they love it. I mean, you don't hear people loving products very often - you know, really." -- Steve Jobs, "Triumph of the Nerds"

"What's more, the side-effects of smoking marijuana day and night for 15 years appear to be zero. DeQuattro said his team tested Kubby for cognitive function before and after smoking and found his mind, memory and motor skills unimpaired. But the discovery that really jolted them was the lungs. Here they had a subject who admittedly smoked a couple hundred joints a month for 15 years -- a perfect opportunity to measure the damage from chronic high level consumption -- but they couldn't find any. 'His respiratory functions are the same as for someone who never smoked at all.'" -- "The War on Drugs Takes Another Hit" by Mike Gray
