also a fun idea - if you've converted a player to, or met another fluxx
player, trade your deck's traveller action card (that doesn't sound like
a bad idea for the card title either) with theirs, and continue the
tradition.  if the player lacks a blanxx, make them one and start the
chain!  sounds like a (fun but semi-pointless) keeper card, actually.

i'd be sure to write my name/info of some sort onto the bottom of the
face card too, or around the outer ring, just to see, when and if it
finally comes back to me, just how many people had it before it came

We've toyed with ideas like this, but never come up with a concrete plan.
But it's a really intriguing idea for a product...   imagine one of those
wooden boxes that said 'Traveling Fluxx Deck' on the top, and contained
a log sheet for a multi step journey. You put your name and address into
it, and then give it away in some prescribed fashion.  There would be
guidelines around how to pick who to give it to.  Ideally it should be
someone in a completely different circle of friends from you, preferably
in another city or country. The recipient promises to play it with all
of their friends for a while, and then pass it along to someone else
who promises to do the same, to eventually come back to the person who
started the deck on it's journey.

Would it work?  Would the decks come back? It's not quite the scenario
that Laurie described... since her deck kept coming back to her between
each new step on it's journey.

Does anyone else have a story of a traveling Fluxx deck?

one more thought on this:

Once they get the new deck, they're going to give my dear,
converted-them-all seven-year-old deck a vikings' funeral -- save the
Basic Rules, which they are sending back to me for posterity.

Ask them if they can bring a camera - I want to see this on YouTube!
