This is great, and much more what I wanted.

I do agree with the other folks that have voiced concerns about how it
sounds in terms of who it's aimed at.  I'm going to harass a couple of
my friends (Looney Labs players who I swear I'm going to get to sign
on as blab rabbits someday) to run my thinking through their
marketing-speak brains.

The formatting looks a bit odd on my system, just as a note, IE6 on
Windows XP -- the text on the right is overlapping on the images.

The only thing that I'd say is that while the sparse look works and
loads on all browsers... it's just that, very sparse, not shiny or
polished to speak of.  People are used to reputable commercial stuff
looking so very, very shiny... goodness knows I don't want it looking
soulless or gooped up with (horrors) Flash or something nasty....

but yes.

so we've got two new pages up:


and they have a basic description of what Fluxx is... and I was
thinking to add in some testimonials...

what else can we put on these pages to help them speak to
an audience that has never heard of Fluxx but find their way
to this page due to advertising they find in Christian or
Jewish settings?

What else are you looking for on such a page, Laurie?
