Product Description

Product Description

It's a Martian Invasion-themed version of Fluxx! Just as Zombie Fluxx draws on all those classic Zombie movies for inspiration, Martian Fluxx is about all those great alien invasion stories going back to the original, the War of the Worlds. Some of the Keepers you'll find in the Martian Fluxx: Mars, the Mothership, the Flying Saucer, the Tripod, the City, the Cow, the Ray Gun, the Space Suit, and the Tentacle. The Tentacle? I hear you asking. How is that a good thing? All those other things sound like great Keepers but what's good about a tentacle? Well, they're great if you're a Martian... which is what we are in this game! In Martian Fluxx, the players are invaders from Mars, and the Creepers are those pesky Pathetic Humans who are always getting in our way, keeping us from winning. Cows of course are Keepers because for Humans and Martians alike, they're good eating. There are actually two Cow Keepers in the game; if you have them both you can win with the Goal "Two All-Beef Earthlings." The idea of making us the Martians came about as I realized the Martians are the ones who get all the cool stuff! Other cool Keepers you'll find include the Abduction Chamber (which you can hide your Pathetic Humans in), the Space Modulator and the Mind-Control Transmitter. And yes, you can use that Ray Gun to vaporize Pathetic Humans. (The Germs Creeper however is harder to get rid of...)

All are easy and fast to play, great fun for all ages.

You may be on the verge of winning until another player changes the rules in his or her favor, then you have to restrategize and hope to draw good cards.
Adrienne
The game, as with other Fluxx games, is in constant flux and is so funny.

This is a good version of flux. It really captures the essence of humanity's pop culture sense of mars and martians and makes for a fun version of flux. Beyond the original flux, there are new cards called "Creepers" that complicate and change some of the strategy for winning. Additionally, the "Keeper" cards sometimes have special functions in the game that spice things up. A great combination with Zombie Flux (yup, two decks at the same time with the right number of people is quite fun).

I actually got this version of Fluxx before playing regular Fluxx. I had it recommended to me by someone at the local game store here and decided I'd pick it up. It really is a very good game, and I personally don't agree with the other reviewer in their opinion of it being more complicated than normal Fluxx. There are a few rule cards that in my opinion can make it a lot harder in normal Fluxx. Not to say it isn't fun, I still love both versions and consider both to be 5 star games, and are my favorite card games to play. If you want a game that will make you laugh, think a little bit, and will most likely never be the same game twice, definitely pick this up!!

My husband and I have been playing Fluxx since the very first edition was released. We have since purchased almost every variation of it and have yet to be disappointed. Just when you think you understand all the wacky ways to play, they throw in a new feature, like creepers and the fun starts all over again. It's a very hard game to explain to people in a way that gets them excited to play, but once the first game is underway, the rules of play are crystal clear and everyone feels the excitement. Everyone we've introduced to the game has gone on to purchase a deck of their own.

The only thing I'd like to see changed is to have a small icon in the corner of each card denoting which deck the card belongs to. Shuffling together multiple decks can make it much easier to play with a bigger crowd, but sorting it all back out again afterwards can be bothersome.

Fluxx is a gnomic, a game you define as you play it. At the start there is no goal and you simply draw a card and play a card. That changes fast as cards are played that define new rules and goals.

The conceit for this deck is that the players are Martians invading Earth. Goals are themed accordingly, drawing on Hollywood, Ed Wood and popular knowledge. I find them hysterically funny.

There are Action cards that are pretty much the same in all Fluxx variants. The keepers (cards that enable you to achieve goals) are stuff like cows and ray guns and Martian teleporter booths - again side splitting in context and can be combined to form a number of clever visual puns in the goal cards. The creepers (cards you must play and that usually prevent you from winning but not always in this variant) are mostly Pathetic Humans, but there are also the dreaded Germs and Army cards. Again, in context, they make for an amusing and nifty mechanism as well as offering a neat win possibility.

Special for this deck is the Martian Tech, a subset of the Keepers that allow all sorts of nifty things to be done by the owning player.

Fluxx is a short-term tactical game in which the win is almost always a lucky spur-of-the-moment thing, and the play value can be diminished because of that, but for a quick game with no real limits on numbers of players (I've had as many as 9 at the table in one game) it can't be beat.

Martian Fluxx is in my opinion the best of breed.

My family and I are slowly working our way through all of the Fluxx variations. We started with Zombie, and have since tried Star, Regular/Original, "Monster" (a Halloween special), and now Martian. Martian is probably our second favorite, with lots of Creeper cards and unique types of Goals: not all goals are "get these 2 Keepers," some require Creepers or more than 2 things. There are also some clever rules for Keepers, like being able to actually hide Creeper cards under certain Keepers, etc. However, we still find Star Fluxx to be the best. It has tons of rules assigned to Keepers to make them more than just "collectibles," a crazy amount of Action cards to keep the game interesting, and Surprise cards which no other version (that we've found) has. If you can only try one Fluxx game, make it Star Fluxx. If you'd like to try two, Martian Fluxx should be the second one.

My boyfriend introduced me to this game last night and I can say that I'm absolutely addicted. We played for 4 HOURS straight! The game is a nice balance of luck and strategy. The rules are constantly changing which is why the game is so much fun. It's never boring. You may be on the verge of winning until another player changes the rules in his or her favor, then you have to restrategize and hope to draw good cards. Chances are, if you play with a group of friends, there will be no single person who wins more than the rest, which I like very much since I can be very competitive. Normally, I hate being stuck at home on a Friday or Saturday night, but now I can count on Fluxx games to keep me entertained if I decide to stay in. I highly recommend this for both families and college roommates alike.
