Re: [Fluxx] New Rule Proposal; Optical Illusion

The problem there is such a rule would likely catch any new players offguard. So by "experienced", I imagine I meant that they have played Fluxx before. Perhaps I shall add a caveat to replace that word, which says "If today is your first day playing Fluxx, you are exempt from this rule until midnight."

I'm still looking for a good optical illusion to put as an image on the card.

...but you might want to be more explicit on what "experienced"
entails, since in general, Fluxx card rules are supposed to be
complete on the card, i.e. no separate definitions required,
which is one of the chief advantages of Fluxx over most other
card games -- you only have to read rules on cards in play, in
order to know all of the rules that apply at that moment

If there are exceptions, feel free to rules-lawyer me; I can
take it!
