Publisher Comments:

The card game with ever changing rules! It starts out simple, with just the Basic Rule card: draw one card and play one card during each player's turn. But New Rule cards quickly make things chaotic.

Even the object of the game will often change as you play, as players swap out one Goal card for another. Can you get the Rocket to the Moon before someone changes the goal to Death by Chocolate?

Players: 2-5
Playtime: 5-30 minutes
Ages: 8-Adult


There are 4 kinds of cards in Fluxx:

Keepers: You put these out on the table in front of you when you play them.

Goals: When someone plays a goal, it stays in the center of the table until a new goal takes its place. To win, you simply need to do whatever the goal says. Most of the time, the goal requires you to have a couple of particular Keepers on the table in front of you. As soon as any player achieves the current goal, that player wins!

New Rules: This is where the fun really starts. When the game begins, the only rules are that you draw 1 card per turn and play 1 card per turn. But when you play a New Rule, these rules are either changed or added to. New Rules change the number of cards drawn and played per turn as well as the number of cards you are allowed to hold in your hand, the number of Keepers you can have, bonuses for players who have particular Keepers, and more.

Actions: These are 1 time use cards that let you do fun stuff like stealing someone else's Keeper, getting rid of a rule you don't like, drawing more cards, and so on.

flux: (noun)continuous change - That definition is definitely how they came up with the name for this great card game (no matter which version you buy: Zombie, Oz, Stoner, Eco, Cthulu, Monty Python and more). It starts simply enough: You have three cards in your hand and the play rule is draw one card, play one card. That is until someone plays a new rule card which might be draw 4 or play 2 or a big selection of other rules that effect the game. The goal needed to win the game is set by a card that determines two particular "keeper" cards you need to have in front of you ... until someone changes the goal (and they will ... often) unless you have a "creeper" card that will keep you from winning ... unless the goal card says that you have to have that card. Then there are action cards that you can play which will let you steal cards, force players to discard cards ... the game is never the same, hence the name. Super fun and because the rules and goals change constantly, games can last 5 minutes or 30.
