Product Description

Beware! The daring Louie is on the way in his glaring red flier. But instead of whizzing through the air in a straight line, he flies in a circle and frightens all the chickens when he zooms too close to the farms. So watch out and quickly save your chickens by catapulting Louie up and perhaps turning him in a somersault.

I played Loopin' Louie in Germany and loved it! So much fun for all ages, and I mean all ages! Google "Loopin' Louie Germany" and see how adults can also have fun.This game challenges the dexterity of the players unlike most games, which in certain situations can be quite entertaining!

I am very pleased with the customer service of FunagainGames, I needed this game last minute and they were very quick and responsive to ensuring my package would arrive on time. And what I love most of all, sparing you most of the details, is that they could have taken advantage of my desperation and gotten more money from me, but did not. They were very reassuring and prompt in letting me know that my package would arrive on time with my current shipping rate.

Thank you FunagainGames!

Excellent stupid fun
June 07, 2002

Certain games are fun, despite the fact that they are essentially stupid. Looping Louie is just such a game. The idea of the game is simple. There is a small plane on a counterweighted arm. As the motorized base turns, the plane cruises around and around at the height of the four 'barns' surrounding it. If the plane comes in contact with one of the cardboard disks that stand atop the barn, it knocks them down. It is the player's duty to keep this from happening to his disks by whacking the underside of the plane with a teeter=totter situated just before the barn. If successful, the plane will be catapulted high above the cardboard disks, and hopefully will come to land in the neighborhood of someone else's disks.

That is essentially the whole game. Wait for the right moment, whack the plane, hope it doesn't do a nose dive into your barn and knock out your disks. Stupid fun, but much more emphasis on the fun than the stupidity. This has been marketed both as Looping Louie, which accomodates 2 to 4 players, and as Barn Buzzing Goofy, essentially a two player version with Disneyfied graphics. Both are in unnaturally short supply, but are well worth the cost. Looping Louie is by far the preferable edition, since it accomodates more players, but Goofy is definitely worthwhile.

Even adults can enjoy this game, and it can be played by young and old alike. Recommended.

Strategic? Hardly. Inane? Surely. Fun? Yep!

I don't like to line the pockets of American board game companies because they produce so much luck-driven shlock and take space up at Toys R Us that I wish were given over to the superior German board game companies (Rio Grande Games greatly excepted! Way to go Jay Tummelson!) However, this game is so much fun, I will make an exception.

True, this game has the same IQ requirement as Hungry Hungry Hippos, but it's a blast! My game group will play Tigris & Euphrates and Modern Art, or Princes of Florence and Elfenland, then finish with 10 games of Loopin Louie! What fun! It's just a mash-the-lever kind of game, but who knew how much fun that could be with the right group.

Families will like this one to for the same reason Hungry Hungry Hippos is so much fun for families!
