Have you played against random-move opponents before?

So one day I was bored, and decided to get out Fluxx 5.0. I set out five ghost opponents and a randomizer. And I managed to... lose. Because one enemy played a Goal that made another win.

Seriously, everything was random. Steal a keeper? Pick a random number from 1 to #keepers.
Problems arise with GetOnWithIt, Mystery Play, Recycling, and Goal Mill though and I want advice.
Since then, I have managed to defeat increasing numbers of opponents. I want to play against nine, but I never find the time.

Has anyone else done something like this? If so, did you manage to win? Did you run into problems with certain rules?

I've not tried it with Fluxx, but a few weeks ago I tried a similar experiment vs 2 random players in donaldx's Greed. (I won easily.)

FWIW I've also played solitaire against the Robots in Power Grid a few times. :)

Wow. I just managed to do a 10P game. Nine opponents, quite suspenseful.

Rotate Hands was used THREE times, all of which messed up my plans. And when I finally got to my last turn, all I had was the goal 5 Keepers, and I had one keeper.

But I drew my 6 cards. (There were tons of rules: draw 6, play 5, inflation, SPFD, goal mill, etc.) And I managed to beat the odds with a lucky Goal Mill, and soon enough, I had 11 Cards In Hand (both meanings). So I won.

I really feared a mess-up, but constant hand limits prevented others from getting too many keepers. One player had four at some point, but then someone Shared the Wealth.

Overall, it was quite fun, and I encourage someone to one-up me. It is especially suspenseful right before my last turn, when I thought someone with the wrong attitude could easily abuse the mountain of New Rules, but no one played a goal to cause others to win.
