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 of rotating a tile," peg, "or not."
"The game will end when someone has claimed," peg, "3 goals."
