LOONEY LABS AND CARTOON NETWORK ENTERPRISES ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP
TO CREATE CARTOON NETWORK-THEMED FLUXX GAMES
Regular Show and Cartoon Network Fluxx games will be available beginning this summer
COLLEGE PARK, MD. – June 9, 2014 – Looney Labs and Cartoon Network Enterprises have announced a licensing partnership to create Cartoon Network-themed versions of the award-winning Fluxx card game. Regular Show Fluxx and a multi-property Cartoon Network Fluxx will be unveiled this July at Comic-Con International and will be available at select retailers beginning this summer.
“We’re huge fans of Cartoon Network, so we’re beyond excited to partner with the network on this project,” said Andy Looney, founder, Looney Labs. “Regular Show Fluxx is based on one of the network’s biggest hits and is one of our favorite shows. Cartoon Network Fluxx showcases a colorful assortment of Cartoon Network characters from shows past and present – and combines them into one awesome game.”
Regular Show Fluxx highlights the show’s lead characters, a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby, who are best friends working as groundskeepers at a local park. Their attempts to slack off and get out of work lead to strange, surreal misadventures. Created by JG Quintel, more than 150 Regular Show episodes have been created since the EmmyÒ Award-winning series debuted on Cartoon Network in September 2010.
Cartoon Network Fluxx will feature a diverse line-up of fan-favorite characters from a variety of the network’s hit original series including Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Dexter’s Laboratory, Ed, Edd ‘n Eddy, Johnny Bravo, The Powerpuff Girls and Samurai Jack.
Regular Show Fluxx ($20) and Cartoon Network Fluxx ($12) will be available at retailers nationwide including Target and several hobby, game and bookstores.
About Fluxx: The Card Game
There’s one basic rule: Draw one card, Play one card. You start with a hand of three cards… add the card you draw to your hand, and then choose one card to play, following the directions written on that chosen card. The rules of the game constantly change as you play. Fluxx is simple to set up and great for game nights, parties, travel or any time.
