Looney Labs Big Experiment #2

You see a sign sitting in the hallway that says "Big Experiment" with a listing of many games. You look up to see a large signpost that proclaims "Looney Labs." Curious, you decide to poke your head in the room, and see people sitting around at various tables playing games with colorful pyramids, talking about unsinking the Titanic, and proclaiming that they have stolen the toaster. As you enter the room, you glance around to see a small den in the center of the room, decorated with tie-dye sheets and people sitting on the floor around the table asking about the buddha-nature. And in the corner people are stacking large foam pyramids.

Before you know it, you're approached by someone in a lab coat. "Welcome to the Lab... would you like to play a game?"

The Looney Labs Big Experiment #2 happened at the Origins game convention in Columbus, OH from July 5th-8th, 2001. It was a blast.
