#15 S1 (36 plays since 2012-06-28)

This game is one of the few in this list that I was playing before I started logging plays on BGG, so that it shows lower than my actual "lifetime plays" count.

It is a light, pleasing card game for all ages. Players create an array of cards in an effort to link seven panels (one to four panels per card) of one of the five elemental suits. As is common among Looney Labs card games, you can just deal three cards to a newcomer and bring them on in the middle of the game. It's a little less random than Fluxx, with some hand management tactics and possibilities for bluffing and deception around the hidden goals. I'm quite fond of Andy Looney's hippie art here: I like it better than the Elmore art in the Seven Dragons re-theme.

I got the Aquarius Dragon promo card that serves as an optional start card, and I like it pretty well. I don't always use it, but I've probably played with it in the majority of my games since acquiring it.


Aquarius has a number of clever variants, including Anti-Aquarius and Aqua-Chicken.

In addition to the fun of playing Aquarius itself, I've found that it makes a good component set to combine with Looney Pyramids in inventing new games. None of these Icequarius (or Aquahouse) games are counted among the 30 plays here, but ones that I've designed are Aquarius Rising and Quintazone-Chaser, while those by other designers include Quintazone, Alheimur, Pantopia, and Kaeru. Here's an image of an Aquarius Rising session:

Savers - $1.99 (in hanging bag with oddly unidentifiable Ninja turtle figure. ..it's Michaelangelo but doesn't match exactly any pics of figures from that year. Oh well.)

All cards there. Instructions missing but downloaded from Looney Labs site for printing.

I do like this game a lot, and it hasn't seen play for a while. So it's great to have it among my move games. Plays will include the Aquarius Dragon as often as not.
