Time to take a look at a Shiney card game. Its Firefly 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 out there and we took a look at the Adventure Time Fluxx here and had a blast with it, and being a fan of the TV show Firefly I was looking forward to seeing how it stacked up.
Fluxx is a great little expandable game that can be combined with other sets to increase variety and replay ability, though Olivia declared I was not allowed to mix them in with the Adventure Time set (she is a huge Adventure Time fan like me) as "Its Adventure time dad, not SPACE adventure time". She knows how Fluxx plays because of that game
so what's inside? lets look...........
We played a few other games straight after as it played so fast, and it changed each time, 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, or adjust the rules to your liking more.
Its a fun game for all ages to enjoy, and if you are a Firefly fan you will love it, if not but you like the idea of Fluxx, there are plenty of other versions out there, so find one give it a try, and you will soon want them all.
I asked Olivias thoughts on this.....
I like Fluxx, its a good game and its fast and fun, though I am not sure if I like Firefly or not. I love Fluxx Adventure Time, and I know how to play the game, so if you are good we can play this sometimes instead of Adventure Time as I know you like spaceships"
