The term that precedes "Fluxx" answers the question of "What type of Fluxx is it?"

You know, like this:
"Hey, that's cool.  What kind of Fluxx is that?"
"It's EcoFluxx."

"What kind of Fluxx is that one?"
"That's Zombie Fluxx.  It's Fluxx with Zombies!"

"And that new one?  What kind of Fluxx is it?"
"Alien Invasion Fluxx!  We get to take over the world from the Pathetic Humans!  Mwahahahaha!"
