If there’s one constant about games, it’s that they all need a set of rules that players must follow—or do they? Fluxx is the card game where the rules are always changing as the game is played! If you like crazy, chaotic, thematic fun, Fluxx is the game for you—and there are plenty of versions to choose from.
Of course every game has to start somewhere, and Fluxx starts with one basic rule: draw one card, play one card. You start 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. Needless to say, things quickly become chaotic!
Here it is, the latest version of the basic Fluxx card game, now with 100 cards (including cards previously available only as promos). Remember, even the object of the game will often change as you play, as players swap out one Goal card for another. Can you get the Rocket to the Moon before someone changes the goal to Death by Chocolate?
Fluxx is published by Looney Labs and is designed for 2-6 players, ages 8 to adult. A game can take anywhere from 3-30 minutes to play!
Zombie Fluxx takes the award-winning card game Fluxx and cranks up the fun with a Zombie uprising! The Zombies arrive in the form of a new type of card, called the Creeper, which hangs around in front of you, preventing you from winning.

Plus you’ve got Sandwiches and Coffee and a couple of Friends to help you win. The bad news is, if your Friends become Zombies, you’ll have to destroy them. Welcome to the dark side of Fluxx …
