I got a suggstion offline to maybe use Nanofictionary cards instead of Fluxx.

I think this reading is possible but it is sort of like a Morgan's
Tarot. Du Wacky Du if you know what I mean.

I also think a single card reading is more appropriate to this
attention span and crowd.

I think some keepers would work but some might be um not so hot.

Cookies? What? Your mom loves you OK Maybe.

Chocolate? ???

Bread. OK thats kinda like pentacles

The eye? OK maybe thats a good one about observation, paying attention.

I think making your own deck might be better. That way only the best
of the tarot and fluxx cards would as they say make the cut.

You could put in the Halloween ideas, some fluxx keepers, some major
arcana and go to town.

I guess my best advice is tread lightly you have a potential of
offending both the believers and the non-believers alike.
