Originally produced in 2002, Nanofictionary is a card-driven storytelling game. Players use cards representing common story elements -settings, characters, problems, and resolutions- to craft their own short stories. At the end of the round, each player tells their own story, using the cards they played to guide the plot. The players then vote on which stories they liked the best, with the story collecting the most votes winning the game.
The new version of the game, releasing on August 17, features new artwork and is designed for 3 to 6 players, ages 10 and up. Game play takes about half an hour. MSRP is $15.00.
In May, Looney Labs will release the science-themed Chemistry Fluxx (see “Weird Science Escapes Looney Labs”). Looney Labs’ adult-oriented imprint, Fully Baked Ideas, also plans three summer releases: Stoner Loonacy and Drinking Fluxx (see “Fully Baked Ideas Introduces Adults-Only ‘Loonacy’”), as well as Adult Mad Libs (see “Fully Baked Presents ‘Adult Mad Libs: The Game’”).
