"We got our first version of Fluxx from a friend several
years ago. I now buy Fluxx for every birthday party we get invited
to - and I play the game with whatever kids my teen daughter
drags home with her - and they ALWAYS ask for their own copies!
We play Aquarius and Chrononauts at home too!" --

schoolbuses in India.
All Systems Go for Monty Python Fluxx!
into the final countdown for the launch of Monty
Python Fluxx, and everything is going very smoothly. We've
got the final approvals we needed from the Licensers (yes, the
Python guys themselves have given the cards their collective
blessing) and as you see here, we've also settled on our design
for the cover of the box. (Speaking of which, doesn't the artwork
look great? We're all really pleased with the work done by our
artist on this job, Todd Hamilton of DeLano Services.)
Pre-orders are going really well -- we've already pre-sold
over 9000 decks! We're hoping to be immediately shipping over
10K copies when the decks arrive, in just a couple of weeks now.
We're all just tingling with excitement about this one...
Monty Python Fluxx is poised to do better than Zombie
Fluxx, which was a huge hit for us, and could even outsell
original Fluxx, our biggest seller ever. I can't wait to start
hearing everyone's reactions to it -- I think y'all are going
to love it!
BTW, for those who just can't wait to get a glimpse of what's
inside, there's a page featuring 9
sample cards over at the official Fluxx
In other news, I'm developing a new 3HOUSE
game and we're all really excited about it, too. But I'm not
ready to do anything more than tease you with this knowledge
at this point, but take it from my playtesters -- Secret Project
WW5 is really really cool!
Thanks for reading, and have a great fortnight!
PS: I'm on FaceBook
||Now that I have an iPhone (and OMG this thing is the greatest
gadget ever!) I've become an instant fan of Pandora
Radio and the Music Genome Project. What a system! You just tell
it the name of a song or an artist you dig, and then it sets
up an automatic "radio station" for you featuring an
endless, ad-free mix of music it thinks you'll love based on
what you like best. I've been very impressed with the results
-- a sweet blend of great stuff I've never heard of with long-time
favs I didn't tell it about but which it knew I would enjoy.
It's incredible -- and apparently totally free, too!
||"We're playing this track because it features electronica
roots, use of modal harmonies, inventive instrumental arrangements,
headnodic beats, acoustic drum samples, downtempo influences,
thin ambient synth textures, a slow moving base line, trippy
soundscapes, mellow rock instrumentation, prevalent use of groove,
and many other similarities identified in the Music Genome Project." -- typical description from Pandora
of the music I really dig
||I noticed this week that the assimilation of Kinko's into
FedEx has been completed; their newest ads say "FedEx Kinko's
is now FedEx Office." I'm saddened by this; Kinko's was
a fun name to have in our marketplace, and phrases like "I'm
going to Kinko's" will continue to be common, for me at
least, long after all the signs bearing that name are gone.
