Hello

So I have seen Star Fluxx the card game being played and I think it looks like a fantastic game. I have now noticed that there are so many other versions of the game.

How do these differ, is it the same game but just a different theme? or is it a new set of rules?

Would anyone recommend a particular version?

It is always a new set of rules, as the cards make the rules

The main difference is the theme, but... some versions contain creepers (cards that prevent you from winning), while others don't. Also Pirates for example have surprise cards (play whenever you want). Star flux also has some extra symbols on the keepers I believe.

My suggestion:
pick the theme that you like the most, but also that your gaming group likes. I love Monty Python, but so many people don't know it, so the jokes are not funny for them. I sold my copy of monty python fluxx because of that.

I have Monster Fluxx, Star Fluxx and Batman Fluxx.

They all play different. Monster Fluxx is the easiest because it doesn't have "creeper" cards. I pull this out when there are new players to teach.

The rules for "creeper" cards in Batman Fluxx are very different than those of Star Fluxx.

Three themes, three different games. Lot's of fun!

Agreed - pick a theme you like.
I've got base Fluxx, Star Fluxx, and Oz Fluxx, and each of them shares a core rule set with the other games but tweaks Creepers and some other cards (ie, if you can play one, you can most likely play any, but they're not "all the same game." and do have some different feel.

I know Fluxx gets some dislike but I enjoy playing it every now and then.

I'd recommend just the good old original Fluxx.

Yes, many different themes. Cartoon Network Fluxx is a hoot too. Grab your fave theme and just go for it. It's an easy game to learn, even with creepers and such. If you like quick and silly card games, you can have a fun time with any of them.

Pirate Fluxx is the best.


Cause theres a captains hat.

And the other players have to call you captain while you have it.

Pirates sounds fun.

I think I may have to go for the Space one. This is the one I saw being played and it looked great. Batman interests me but not read good things about it so makes me apprehensive about it.

Thanks for the help.

it's the same game with slight changes. Most of the changes are to the theme.

You can, but I'd advise not to blend in 3 or more fluxx decks. I did it once and it was a never ending game (after 2,5 hours we finally stopped). The thing is, you need to have the correct combination of cards on the table to win. With more decks, the chances of getting those combinations get smaller.

... and I thought you meant in a blender. Of course, this should happen to all Munchkin cards! yuk

You can, but it might make it virtually impossible to win, since the combinations required would be less likely to be present at any given time.

Pete (thinks a thin Fluxx deck is better than a fat one)

Also, to save on headache:


If your fluxx deck has an "inflation" card in it. DESTROY THAT CARD. Your life may depend on it. (or at least your frienndships)
