My main Fluxx deck is filled with blanxx cards and promo cards, and my deck is roughly twice the size of a normal deck of Fluxx--I'm just about filling the large Fluxx Boxx. As a result, a few of my cards never actually work in play (see He Who Dies With The Most Toys
). I am proud to announce that, yesterday, Everything is Better With Beer
was finally used to win the game!
Everything is Better with Beer
- For any goal that lists two or
more specific Keepers for a single player to have on the table, Beer
may be substituted for any of those Keepers. Ignore this rule if any
player has Death
or the Bible
on the table.
A member of my weekly gaming group used this rule to fulfil the goal Peace on Earth
. He had Earth
, signifying that if the whole world has beer, we won't need peace.
This incident has brought to my attention that, with such a large deck of cards, the chance of Beer and EiBwB being on the table at the same time is slim. For this reason, I will be striking out the last sentence of the card that mentions Death
and the Bible
. I used it for game balance reasons, but it is self-defeating in my case. If anyone chooses to use this card (along with the corresponding Beer
keeper) in a more traditionally sized deck, I suggest leaving the clause in.
I just wanted to share with you all our group's joy in finally seeing this card in action. It's no fun to make a cool new card and never have it come up--although I fear that He Who Dies With The Most Toys
is doomed to eternal uselessness in my deck.
