Re: [Fluxx] Favorite/Least favorite cards

I have a few favourite cards, but I really like Go Fish. It's a little
confusing to new players because they don't know what the names of the
cards are but I remember using it to good effect the first day i was
introduced to Fluxx. I find it quite satisfying to Go Fish for a goal
and force someone to hand it over for the win. There is also something
about fishing for a keeper, and finding as the top card of the deck.

As for least favourite, it used to be hand limit 0, but lately i've
changed that opinion. In my current Fluxx group if someone has hand
limit 0 in their opening hand it usually is their first play (with
some exceptions). There are a lot of cards that are frustrating when
used against you, but they are even more fun to use against someone
else. At the moment i don't play with the Computer keeper in the deck,
because i feel that it is unbalanced and i haven't found a good method
to balance it yet. First play random is another one that i dislike,
but only because it's so easy to forget to do, not because of what it
does to the gameplay.
