First demo of Regular Show Fluxx

At the end of a day of games of assorted levels of weight, I brought out the Regular Show Fluxx that had arrived that day.  Everyone was familiar with Fluxx, but no one (not even me) had seen many episodes of that cartoon, so several of the individual cards were mystifying.  A couple of the players were somewhat familiar because they have kids who watch it.

After the actual game was over, we looked through the rest of the cards to see what they were.  No one understood things like…

Fluxx: The Board Game at Game Paradise

In my first demos of Fluxx: The Board Game at Game Paradise on Sunday, July 14, I demonstrated it to six other people, three of whom had never seen any form of Fluxx before.  The ones who were familiar with Fluxx thought that this form was more interesting than the usual card game.

I came up with a technique for demonstrating the peg boards while explaining the rules:

"At the start of your turn, you will draw," peg, "1 card."

"For each move, you have the option…

Star Fluxx demos

Quick summary:  On eight of the nights since I got the demo pack, I played a total of 14 games of Star Fluxx across 5 locations in 3 Indiana counties, and I have given away 8 of the promo cards so far.  One store mentioned considering a specific Fluxx demo day once they get their shipment in, with me in charge of the demos.

 

Before starting these demos, I selected CD tracks corresponding to two dozen cards (or combinations of cards) and created a playlist in my iPad; my…

Daniel W. Johnson replied to John duBois's discussion 'Fluxx: The Board Game rules question'
"Two other questions that I forgot to include: 2. If wraparound is enabled, does that also work for bumping? 3. I suppose "You must make all of the moves you can" allows for the possibility that someone's pieces can't move at all."

Daniel W. Johnson replied to John duBois's discussion 'Fluxx: The Board Game rules question'
"I have a question about the end of the game:  If claiming a game-winning goal from the goal stack reveals another goal which is already met on the board, does that get claimed as well before determining whether the game is over?"

Daniel W. Johnson replied to Joseph Sullivan's discussion 'Cthulhu Fluxx!'
"I ran into another question that I was expecting to see in the FAQ: If Cosmic Instructions is in effect, does the mandatory play of an Ungoal count as one of the Plays for the turn?"

Daniel W. Johnson replied to Kristin Looney's discussion 'GenCon, PAX, and DragonCon'
