"Out of print" is what the book says.  I think it's fine without 3.0.
after all, we've already got 3 of most cards, would putting 3.0 in
really add anything?

I think that's fine - although I've not been to origins before, I get
the impression that it's intended to be pretty family friendly.
Notwithstanding the Looney's views on cannabis, I can imagine that
some parents would be... discomfited if they saw their kids playing

HHmmmm... checking The Book again, it does say that Stoner may be part of the mix - and I did set the age at 18+, so that's fine....

Promo cards are special, and they aren't part of a "version of Fluxx
currently in print".  Promo cards aren't available for sale either.

Um... yes they are Timothy - at least, some of them are....


What about the Religious Fluxx expansions?  They too aren't
technically part of a "version of Fluxx currently in print", but they
are in print and available for retail sale, unlike promo cards.

Ah... yes... I should put those in.  Got it.  :)

In that case, what about the 7 card pack that will be on sale at Origins?  Should I add that in? They are technically "promo" cards....
