Product Description

Fluxx is a fun, quick, addictive card game that never plays the same way twice. The rules change as the game progresses, offering uniquely high replay value. Now grab your cutlass, pirates have taken over Fluxx. There'll be times ye must Talk Like a Pirate, and rules about how ye can Plunder from yer mates - even cards that let you play out of turn to take your enemies by Surprise. Playing the Captain's Hat gives ye certain privileges but watch out for Mutiny amongst the crew.

From the Manufacturer

Yarr. Grab yer Cutlass. Pirates have taken over Fluxx, the ever-changing card game, and their rules be new and strange. There'll be times ye must Talk Like A Pirate, and rules about how ye can Plunder from yer mates. But the most excitin' treasure fer Fluxx fans new and old is the Surprise. A new card type that you play out of turn. Your trusty Monkey can watch over the Gold Doubloons while you commandeer Ships on the high seas, but only Fruit can protect you from Scurvy. You'll enjoy the privileges of wearing the Captain's Hat but watch out for Mutiny amongst the crew.

First off, the basic Fluxx game mechanic is a 4-star game. It's fun, trivially easy to teach and not too frustrating for the players. But in its "beer and pretzel" silliness are mechanics that let it sometimes get bogged down or too weird.

Pros:
It's very easy to play, even for beginners--starting with a single "draw one, play one" rule.
It's silly fun with half the cards changing the rules or the goals of play.
It scales well from 2 to many players
It is somewhat replayable
Normal games are about 15 minutes.

Cons:
It's hard to use very much strategy
It's HIGHLY variable in length. One game can be a 3-card laydown win. Others are an hour or more.
It's good for about 3-4 games before you're moving on to other things.

The "Pirate Fluxx" deck is a stand-alone game which has the same basic pros and cons, while being marginally more fun than the basic game. It contains a full deck of cards specific to Pirates, and introduces new concepts along with the new theme. A few key cards of note:

The Captain's Hat, adds bragging rights to the game and a few play variations.
The "talk like a pirate" card is fun, though gets silly after a while.
Two new creepers are interesting, easily gotten rid of, and add a bit of variation to play
The "Plunder" card introduces significant card swapping among players.

If you've played Fluxx before, or want a safe first time purchase, it's worthwhile. It won't make the sole basis of a 4 hour game night, but is a good filler.

Of the theme decks I've played so far (Original, Monty Python, Zombie, Pirates) Pirates is my favorite.

I am actually using this game in my counseling group with younger students to help them with their rigidness and dealing with the unexpected. The students love it and it has been great in getting them to be more flexible with their thinking. We play it with teams which makes it a little bit easier for them to understand and speeds up playing time. I play as my own team so I am able to have a little bit of control in changing things up. With your immature students expect them to point out that FLUXX sounds an awful like a certain four letter word they can't say. Actually, I thought the same thing when I first came across the game. The students love the pirate theme idea. We use a toy parrot to set in front of them if they get the captain card because, then we don't have to worry about head lice with a hat.The students really get a kick out of having me call them the captain. Their favorite card is the talk like a pirate card, because I have the worst pirate accent.

As a fan of the original Fluxx card game, I couldn't resist trying the Pirate variant. Game play is similar to the original (it's called "Fluxx" for a reason - everything is always in flux!!), with a few added surprises, including the "Plunder" rule which allows stealing of other players' Keepers and several Goals that are significantly more flexible than those in the original game. (For example, one out of four possible ships will satisfy one of the two conditions of a Goal.) I highly recommend Pirate Fluxx!!

My friends and I like this version of Fluxx the most out of all of the ones we've played - I also have the Zombie and Stoner editions. You can play Fluxx over and over because of how dynamic and varying the game is. An earlier reviewer said that there isn't opportunity for strategy - not true at all; if you play enough times you can work out what people are planning to do, not to mention the variety of cards that can really be a disadvantage to others. In general, Fluxx (any version) is an amazing game that always changes, but the reason we like this Fluxx the most is because this edition holds "Surprise" cards; you might not understand what this means if you've never played Fluxx before but trust us veteran Fluxxers - its a complete game-changer!

I was scared for a long time of this game because of the insanly long instructions. They are long with tiny font and it makes the game seem so complicated. Nearly a year after purchasing it, my friend and I finally felt brave enough to try (only after hearing from a friend to ignore the directions and start with the "simple rules" card and go from there)

It was amazing, one of the most fun card games I have played in a long time. Its competitive yet light hearted; it's fun and exciting. Everyone should know how to play this game.

My advise is to just go head first into the game and only worry about rules when you need to. Only read the discription of what each card is. Then put the "simple rules card" out in front of you and follow them until you change them. Put keepers cards down in front of you if you can. Change the rules and way to win as many times as you want. And if you have questions, refer to the directions. Otherwise, play the game and have a blast!

For current Fluxx players, this pirate theme lives up to its name. Jolly Rogers, cannon balls, and parrots await you in this deck. Y'arrrr!!!

Pirate Fluxx is a great game, don't get me wrong, but it's not as fun or as hilarious as Star Fluxx or Zombie Fluxx. The Keeper cards don't have enough special uses for my taste, and the only New Rule which really changes the game up is the Plunder card. If you already love Fluxx, go ahead and buy Pirate Fluxx, it will be a great time. If you've never played Fluxx, start with Star Fluxx, Zombie Fluxx, or vanilla Fluxx (unless you really love Pirates).
