"When I worked at a Wizards of the Coast game store , Chrononauts (and Fluxx, and Nanofictionary) was the game I always grabbed off the shelf when people asked me "Are there any good games to play? We're bored with _____" In the time I spent at Wizards and the Game Keeper, I sold about a thousand Looney Labs games... just two nights ago we had a huge gaming session where I got to laugh in glee as my roommate, upon playing the game for the second time, was frustrated because he kept saving the damn Titanic and we all kept sinking it! I love Chrononauts, and I really love all of your games. I will continue, as long as I am able to work and play the games, to push them, and I wanted to say thank you for making them. I know a lot about board games, and truly, Chrononauts is one of the best. I don't really normally write emails to people, but I was pondering this and decided to write this instead of finishing my Fourier. So, from one game player to another, I say thank you, and continue making games." -- email from "A Friend in Time" named Kevin

What's Going On? Skyland Looney Reunion #2

We're back from spending a weekend in the mountains with 15 members of the Looney Family, and we had a splendid time. This being our second such trip, I think we can start calling it a tradition, and after years of experimentation with various big family excursions (often involving large boats) this is my favorite. At fairly nearby Shenandoah National Park, they have these wonderful old cabins you can rent, with lots of separate rooms and a large common living room (with a fireplace!) and with 15 of us there (Dad & Mom, Howard, Leslie, Eric, & Sarah, Rash, Jeff, Judy, James, & Sharon, Me, Kristin, & Alison, and Kathi) we took over a whole cabin. Then we spent the weekend hanging out together, strolling back and forth to the lodge for heavy, delicious meals, and wandering off in various groups to explore the woods and hike the trails.

As shown below, my 7-year old nephew James became an official Junior Ranger during this trip. He diligently completed all the assignments in the training manual, and was therefore officially sworn in by the Ranger on duty at the Big Meadows Visitor Center. They gave him an official pin and I couldn't resist springing for the official Jr. Ranger hat, which he proudly wore as he lead the family on a hike up to the top of Black Rock.

Sharon on the other hand was too busy enjoying her vacation to keep up with James in Junior Ranger training. I'm with her... this weekend was a time for relaxing and climbing on rocks, not for doing a bunch of homework!

But now, back at work is where we are, and the deadlines are looming, too... we leave for Origins in just a few days! Which reminds me... this site won't be updated next week!

Anyway, it was a wonderful weekend, and thanks again Dad for sponsoring it!

AndyEnjoy Life! See You at Origins!


the story so far

Thought Residue
"Sure, people were up in arms about Clinton's lie -- "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" -- but it pales when compared with Bush's lies. Bush told the American people and the rest of the world that Saddem had weapons of mass destruction, and he initiated a war based on that lie. He killed hundreds of American soldiers and wounded and maimed thousands. He killed thousands of innocent Iraqis. Bush used these lies on top of 9/11 as an excuse to attack Iraq, which was part of his agenda from the day he stole the election. As we know from the congressional hearings, Bush was obsessed with Saddam from the day he took office. According to Richard Clarke's and others' testimony, the obsession with Iraq diverted attention from Bin Laden and the other terrorists who actually did threaten us." -- Michael Moore, from the interview in Playboy magazine, July 2004

Generalizations are usually flawed by exceptions.
"And they criticize, gripe, and complain about almost everything and almost everyone almost all the time." -- Joanna M. Ashmun, from her page about the traits of Narcissistic Personality Disorder
