Looney Labs + Table Top Day = The Looney Lounge & A Whole Lot Of Fun!

A lot of fun was to be had at the 2nd annual Tabletop Day hanging out with the Looney gang.  Nerdarchy decided to take a little road trip for this tabletop day from New Jersey over to College Park, Maryland. Six of us piled into a mini-van and began our quest for Loonacy and fun.  Let me tell you there were plenty of both to be had.  Literally as depicted to the right there :).  Loonacy was one of the many games we got to play while at the Looney Lounge Tabletop Day event.
