Loony Quest plays in a similar way to a platform video game - players progress through levels, beating bosses, collecting bonuses and avoiding obstacles as they travel. The aim of the game is to stay alive and be the first to the finish.
Loony Quest can be played with 2-5 players, and you don't need to be a video game fan to enjoy it, but it probably helps and certainly makes it more amusing. Game play is pretty simple, and I've talked about it more in my Loony Quest review post.
Loony Quest is a really different sort of board game, and it does take some of the most fun aspects of platform video games and translates them really well into a board game using a series of cards, transparent plastic 'screens' and bonus/forfeit tokens.
The forfeits are very simple and very clever, and some of the drawings on the screens are hilarious enough even before you see how many points they did or didn't score for the person who drew them.
Loony Quest is made by Libellud, distributed by Esdevium Games and available to buy now from all good games stockists instore and online, with a recommended retail price of £19.99. To find your nearest stockist see the Store Locator.
