I respect your right to decide what games you think will be fun
for you and only play those games, and I understand your concerns.
I agree that SpeedFluxx would be a very different game, but I
disagree that it would become chaos.

I'm a fan of other turnless games such as "Icehouse", "IceTowers",
"Set", and James Ernest's "Falling". While some of those games can 
be somewhat chao*tic*, the rules are constraining enough to keep
the game from descending into utter chaos.

The same may be true of SpeedFluxx. I can't say for sure until I
try it. (You still don't have to play it =^)
