Of the proposed list, my favorite so far is Fluxx: Invasion.  Reminds me of
the X-com series names.

I am also of the mindset that something longer than two words tends to be
cumbersome for a Fluxx title.

As a proposed alternative, I will suggest Fluxx Attacks, calling on the Mars
Attacks fandom (and perhaps font) of a short time ago, which was actually a
revision of the Mars Attacks of before. (I remember having some of the Mars
Attacks trading cards when I was younger.)

You might even consider a secondary title to further enhance the alien
feeling of the game.  Something like:
Fluxx Attacks:
The Day the Looneys Stood Still

Just some suggestions.

Subject: [Fluxx] Renaming Martian Fluxx?

Greetings Fluxx Fans!

Did everyone see my article about the newest version of Fluxx we're working 


My alpha-test deck has been getting great reactions and we're all pretty 
excited about it here.

However, there is one element we have doubts about: the name. While Zombies 
are obviously hot stuff in today's market, Martians are a little 
old-fashioned. I don't want to change the game itself... it's designed 
around the idea that these invaders are from Mars in the classic style -- 
never mind what NASA may think they know about the Red Planet.

But we could still choose a different name... after all, the name Martian 
Fluxx doesn't even convey the idea that these are nasty Earth-Conquering 
Martians! Also of course, since we have Martian Coasters and Martian Chess 
it's likely to be a little confusing. So I'm becoming more and more 
inclined to choose another name before we get any further along in the 
product's development.

My favorite candidate at the moment is Invasion Fluxx. What do YOU think?

Here are some of the other ideas we've been kicking around:
	Alien Fluxx
	Area 51 Fluxx
	Fluxx Invaders
	Invasion from Mars Fluxx
	Fluxx: Invasion
	Plan Fluxx from Outer Space
	Flying Saucer Fluxx
	Tripod Fluxx
	Conquest of the Earth Fluxx
	Under the Alien Boot-heel Fluxx
	UFO Fluxx

Anybody got any other ideas we should be considering?
