Oz Fluxx

From the box: “Does life seem drab and humdrum? Let the cyclone of the ever-changing card game, Fluxx, whisk you away to a magical world of fun! Mingle with Munchkins, make new friends, and follow the Yellow Brick Road to see the Wizard – but keep a bucket of water handy: you never know when you might need to melt a Wicked Witch. Next stop…the land of Oz! It all begins 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.”

Loy says: “Each Fluxx pack has a fun theme and this one is based on the Wizard of Oz. Like all Fluxx games, this one starts with a deck of cards and no idea of how to win the game. On your turn, you’ll draw some cards and then play some cards. The cards you play may be to change the rules, to set (or change) the winning goal, or simply to collect sets of keepers. This game changes its own rules constantly, and anyone can win at any time. This makes Fluxx unique in that new players can join in at any point and leave at any point, because everyone has an equal chance of being able to collect and set the winning goal, and win the game.”

Sam says: “Growing up as an avid player of Rummy and Euchre, card games have always been a passion. Oz Fluxx presents card games in a way I had not played. Using a deck specific to Oz Fluxx, the point is to complete ‘goal’ cards, which can change as players lay down new goals. Though rules start basic, they grow complex as players add multiple ‘rules’ cards (click your slippers twice to gain ability X [it’s quite clever]). This game can end quickly or can take a half hour, depending on the rules and goals played and the craziness that ensues. The best thing about the Fluxx game series is there are plenty of versions: Pirates, Math, Oz, Star, and those are just a few. Pick up this game for laid back fun and a chill afternoon with friends.”
