Q: I’m a collector trying to find [OUT OF PRINT TITLE]. Any chance there’s some lingering stock or old demo copies at Looney Labs you could sell me?
A: Unfortunately, no. Although we do still have a limited supply of various old titles, we have a rather possessive attitude about them, given their rarity. Yes, we’ve been known to be generous at times, such as special occasions (like when we dug into our stash for prizes at LooneyCon) or hard luck situations (e.g. “my house burned down and I’m trying to restore a particular cherished item”). But for collectors trying to fill in the gaps, we recommend the secondary market — thrift stores, used game vendors, and of course, eBay.
One big issue we are faced with when asked this is the price tag: it’s very difficult for us to decide on an appropriate price for an out-of-print game. That’s the secondary market’s job. But the biggest reason we have for saying no to this type of request is fairness. There are a lot of fans would like a chance to get stuff from our dwindling supply of out-of-print games, and it’s only fair to limit such availability to situations in which everyone has the same opportunity, such as an auction or a raffle. Sorry. But good luck in your quest!
Q: How can I easily separate two different Fluxx decks if I’ve mixed them?
A: Each version of Fluxx has some distinguishing feature. It’s almost always the font at the top of the card, but on some very early decks, we did fun things with the color stripe. Here’s an example of two of the “same” card from Star Trek (TOS) and Star Trek (TNG) Fluxx versions:
Q: I’ve designed a great new version of Fluxx! Can I get Looney Labs to publish it?
A: If you think your deck idea is so good we might want to publish it ourselves, you are welcome to submit it to us. But please understand that we will need for you to grant Looney Labs permission to use your ideas for free before we can even look at them.
Andy already has more unpublished Fluxx decks designed than we have in print, and chances are very good that he’s already thought of whatever it is you’ve come up with. Given this, we can’t risk opening ourselves up to claims that we stole ideas from you if we subsequently publish something that seems similar to an idea you suggested.
You are always welcomed to make one copy for yourself. But just one:

Q: Is there really a Star Wars version of Fluxx?
A: Yes, but only in Russian. The Russian publisher who licensed Fluxx from us has the license to make games with the Star Wars assets… but that is much harder to come by in the US. We’ve explored all the avenues, and we’re unable to get that license. We have not been able to get any copies of the Russian version to sell in our webstore, but some fans have had success from here:
If you end up getting a copy (go you!) here is a handy reference:

Q: Are you going to make a Rick & Morty Fluxx?
A: Andy is a big fan of Rick & Morty, so he loves this idea. Unfortunately, it’s not going to happen. Our 3-year license agreement with Cartoon Network has run its course, so we won’t be making any new games with Cartoon Network branding anytime in the foreseeable future. In a related story, Cartoon Network Fluxx, Adventure Time Fluxx, and Regular Show Fluxx have all now gone into the Vault.
However! Like Star Wars Fluxx, one of our international licensees has the license to produce Rick and Morty games, and Andy is designing it for translation into… Polish. So there will be a version, but it will only be in Polish.
Q: I’m having trouble with my iOS/Android version of Fluxx. Who should I contact about that?
A: Looney Labs did not do the software for the iOS version. We worked with a company called Playdek, so if you’re having any technical difficulties with the app, please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org
