Review: Fluxx

Looking for a game that you can play straight out of the box? That's ideally suited to gamers and non-gamers of all ages? You're looking for Fluxx.

When I say play straight out of the box too, I really mean it. Find the "starter" rule card in your set (Draw 1, Play 1), shuffle the remaining cards together, deal out 5 a piece and you're good to go. Now that's what I call games design!

No convoluted rule books, next to no tuition time for new players and, to top it all, Fluxx comes in a variety of flavors (Family, Eco, Zombie, Pirate, Martian, Monty Python, Stoner, Oz, Star and, Cthulhu at the moment).

Each set has a very distinct feel to it and there is nothing to stop you mixing and matching to create your very own deck. There are even promotional cards that you can throw in there to add to the fun. To boot, should you want to, collecting all of the sets won't see you out of pocket either.

As you have probably guessed by now, this game gets a big thumbs up from me and, if you don't already own it I highly recommend you pick up a copy.

Alchemy Rating: 9.5 out of 10.
