Adventure Time Fluxx by Looney Labs Review
Time to take a look at a card game today, its Adventure Time Fluxx. Fluxx is a simple concept, It all begins with one basic rule: Draw one card, Play one card. You start the game with a hand of three cards... add the card you drew to your hand, and then choose one card to play, following the directions written on your chosen card. As cards are drawn and played from the deck, the rules of the game change from how many cards are drawn, played or even how many cards you can hold at the end of your turn. There are several other variants of the Fluxx game, but never having played them we are just going to concentrate on this one, the Adventure Time edition.
Comes in a small box fully licensed with a great colourful eye catching cover. Olivia and I are huge fans of Adventure time the cartoon show, its full of humour for Adults and children alike, so the fact this is Adventure Time is what caught our interest.
The back of the box states its suitable from 2-6 players, we have played it 2 player and 3 player and it works perfectly well for both of those, so I think would work just as well for more. The time limit seems about right we had games go from about 10-20 minutes on average but with more players I could see it potentially reaching 30, it all depends on what rules cards you draw.
So lets open her up, see what you get and look at how it plays.....
Lastly we have the basic rules card, this goes down on the centre of the table during play so you can add draw and play rules cards as they are played from your hand to keep you aware of whats going on.
And I snuck a win with the goal "wizards only, Fools" when I played the Keepers Abracadaniel, and Ice King. You can easily see his ability when in play that you can steal a princess from one of your opponents each turn. I got the goal first so I won. We played a good few other games, and it changed so fast that every goal was different and the play was simple, fun, but you still had to think to aim towards your goal, or when to play down the action cards for the right effect.
Its a great game, suitable for all ages, another one your gaming group will enjoy as a solid filler or mini styled game, they will LOVE it if they are Adventure Time fans. Its good for Family fun as well, takes seconds to teach, and does not out stay its welcome on the table.
It can be combined with other Fluxx sets to ramp up the craziness should you desire, so there is inbuilt expansion ability with the game to provide even more variety.
Its RRP is £14.99 so head here to find your local store and go and grab it, you need this game like Ice King needs princesses! For non Adventure Time fans, its still a fantastic fun purchase to introduce you to the world of Fluxx, as you do not need a familiarity with the show to understand it or enjoy it, but if you play this and haven't seen it, I am sure you will want to!
