topic of [Fluxx] Renaming Martian Fluxx?...
Greetings Fluxx Fans!
Did everyone see my article about the newest version of Fluxx we're
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
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:
Area 51 Fluxx
Invasion from Mars Fluxx
Plan Fluxx from Outer Space
Flying Saucer Fluxx
Conquest of the Earth Fluxx
Under the Alien Boot-heel Fluxx
Anybody got any other ideas we should be considering?
My preference is Fluxx Invasion, without the Colon.
Alternatively, Alien Fluxx.
