For those of you who are not familiar with the Fluxx concept, I have to tell you a little about the game. It is very well named because the rule and the objective is always changing. You start by drawing a card and playing a card. You or one of your opponents might play a card that changes so that you have to draw 2 cards or play 3. It can get a little out of hand- sometimes literally. You have to to have cards played in front of you that match the current goal in order to win. It is impossible to ever know who is winning the game. It just kind of happens suddenly.
It's in the genre i like to call "screw your neighbor" games. Don't ever play it with someone who takes things personally. Things can get pretty mean and tense quickly. It's also very funny. As long as you keep your sense of humor, this is a terrific game.
Any of these expansion sets can be played on their own or in combination with the original Fluxx game and/or other expansions. It can get out of control. Sometimes that's fun. Each additional set add to the complexity of the game- and usually the time it takes to play it.
This expansion is pretty fun when played on it's own. The concept is that you are playing the martians who are looking to take over the world, or at least eat a few humans. The combinations are a little cheesy and quite funny. Your nemesis, of course, is the human race. Creepers come in the form of humans who, for some reason, want to stop your quest for global domination. These creepers usually prevent you from winning and occasionally make it so everyone loses.Read more ›
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.
