This is a truly chaotic game for the whole family! The entire deck is shuffled and players are dealt 3 cards each. The game begins with only a couple of basic rules, but new rules can be played and goals changed. There are four types of cards in Fluxx: Keepers, Goals, Actions, and New Rules. Keepers are the core of the game and are used to fulfill the current Goal (such as playing a certain combination of Keepers). Actions often affect one player, but can force everyone to draw cards, play cards, and even change the rules! Finally, New Rules add a whole new level of chaos by mandating how the game is played. During each turn, players draw and play as many cards as dictated by the current rules, striving to complete the current goal. But as you may have guessed, this is easier said than done; rules and goals are constantly in flux, requiring luck and timing to achieve victory!
Different versions of Fluxx maintain the basic game play and mainly change Keepers and Goals (for example, Math Fluxx has number cards as Keepers, with the goal of playing the number of your current age, the current date, or other specific numbers). 2-6 players; 5-30 minutes.
