NOTE: Version sold (picture on the right) is the Japanese print by Hanayama which they have called "Kukurin Panic", but it is essentially the same game as Loopin' Louie.
How To Play: Just tap the lever when the Louie (the pilot and the plane) come around, to prevent him from knocking down your discs. Watch the videos to see how it's played!
BGG Brandon Holmes:"My family love this, young and old. Huge hit with us, great drinking game or to play with a mix of adults and kids. Everyone scoffs when I pull it out... until they try it. I have yet to show this to someone and not have them demand we play multiple times."
BGG Matthew Gray:"This is probably the best dexterity game ever. Louie is a little motorized plane which circles around trying to knock chickens off your barn, but if you hit your paddle at the
right time, you can send him looping toward your opponents. Amazingly fun, and the description doesn't do it justice. "
BGG Mark Delano"You haven't played Loopin Louie until you are in a room with 31 other people playing at the same time, under tournament rules. Who knew a motorized plane going around in circles could be so much fun?"
An exceedingly popular game amongst kids and adults alike, that it was published in many countries under different names such as Loopin' Louie, Stef Stuntpilot, Kukurin Panic etc
Game Description: 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' homes and the egg chips they're trying to protect. Each person's home has a little lever, which is used to knock the rotating plane away from your egg chips and hopefully into someone else's. When only one person has chips remaining, he wins the game. Very silly and very addictive.

Reviews & Comments:
BGG Jonas Barkå:"Best game of it's type. Of course it's not a deep strategy game but I've been playing this with adults for hours and needless to say it's also great for kids."
BGG Kevin Heinz:"Not really a great "game" per se, but the fun factor will always make this a 10 for me. I have yet to bring this out for someone that doesn't enjoy the silliness."
BGG Caroline Berry:"I love this game. Very simple, but does include some skill. When it was talked about, I thought it was silly, but one play and I was hooked."
BGG Loi Lam:"The only problem with this game is its limited availability. After playing with 10 adults, they all wanted a copy, and I had to tell them the bad news. "
BGG David Seddon:"Possibly the most fun game for parents and their kids that I have ever played. Ok, so for some critics this would be "just a dexterity game" or a "kid's game," but in both categories it's just about in the best couple of games I've played - and I think the best of any type deserves to be a 9-10. It's a bit addictive and everyone who plays it seems to love it. Yep, you can get the adults to play this for ages, too! We play that if you're out of tokens and you can make Louie stand up vertically, you can get a token back, and we cheer anyone who can make him loop the loop. We also regularly declare and play "the World Championships" between us. It's a game that needs some skill. With practise, you can (sometimes) get the plane to flip just right onto any of the other three player's chicken tokens in a way that means they cannot defend the dive you get Louie to produce. And what a great idea to have the adjustable paddles to give the kids more of a chance against you when you get that good! "
