The Card Game with Ever-Changing Rules
- 100 playing cards (view
- for 2-6 players
- ages 8 - Adult
- 5-30 minute playing time
There are 5 main types 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.
- Creepers: These are sort of like Keepers in that you
keep them in front of you, but you have no choice about playing
them and they usually stop you from winning. (But sometimes,
Creepers are just what victory is calling for!)
