Description Edit | History

In Loopin' Louie, a battery-powered motor placed in the center of the table rotates a boom with a little plastic plane. Four radial arms lead out to the players' barns and the chickens they're trying to protect. Each barn has a little lever, which is used to knock the rotating plane away from your chickens and hopefully into someone else's. When only one player has chickens remaining, he or she wins the game. Very silly and very addictive.

Ages 4 and up

Extremely similar versions of the game, but with different themes, are available.

Awards

Reprinted in 2005, in a somewhat smaller scale, documented in A photo comparison of the Classic and 2006 editions.

Technically, this is a kids' action game, along the lines of Hungry Hungry Hippos. After an appearance at Alan Moon's Gathering of Friends, though, it's had a renaissance.

2 Salto Sammy Installation translation.
English translation of 'Salto Sammy' speed randomiser device installation instructions. Apologise to any native German speakers for butchering your beautifully language. Having no knowledge of the German spoken word I simply fed the text through Google Translations. The result is functional and gets the message across but is probably not the best of translations. Please feel free to suggest any better interpretations.
