I don't have a sample game to put forth yet, but I suggest that people try
to make their sample games as commonplace as possible.
What I mean is: Use 2 Keeper Goals (since the majority require 2 Keepers).
Stick to the common New Rules (Draw #, Play #, Keeper/Hand Limit # [Avoid
Hand Limit 0]). Simple Actions (Steal a Keeper, Draw 2 and Use 'Em, Rules
Reset, Jackpot). 2-4 player games.
If you disagree, that's cool. I just find that when I stick to these
guidelines to teach Fluxx at conventions, new players have an easier time
when I open hand such a game.

I suggest the classic scenario of someone being blessed with a
single-goal keeper and the keeper to match, so they play the
keeper, but then the other player swipes it with Steal A Keeper
and then gets a multi-play (play 3, play all, etc.) that forces
player #1 to make player #2 win instead...
or they could play the goal first and then fall victim to Trade
