Here are my comments, suggestions and questions:

1) Thanks very much for the sneak peak!  I've been eager for it.

2) Hovercraft: Why subtract one? Wouldn't it be simpler -- at least less wordy -- to just add the two numbers and list the choices from 2 to 8?

3) Hovercraft and Inflation: two possibilities:
 A) Add "This card not affected by Inflation" in small print at the bottom.
 B) Spell out *all* the numerals, not just '3'.

4) Get On With It: Does "your turn ends immediately" imply that you can skip Hand and Keeper Limits?

5) The Cheese Shop: Will there be icons? (For example, a Keeper and a Creeper, each with the "None" symbol over it [the red circle and diagonal -- does it have a name?], and the empty hand from the "Hand Limit 0" card, and "You Alone" over the whole thing.)

6) The Cheese Shop: Are there any cards in the deck which make it easier for one player to empty his hand? I'd once thought of a goal of having the only empty hand, but considered too difficult to achieve. Maybe I just haven't noticed an obvious strategy.

7) The Knights Who Say "Ni!": Wonderful! It would be even better if it were neutralized if a card with "It" is on the table -- like "Get On With It".

Hey Fluxx Fans!

Are you excited about Monty Python Fluxx?

Eager for a glimpse at what it will contain?

Well then, here's a tiny sneak peek:


Of course, that's just 9 of the 100 cards in the set...
and the art shown is just the black & white sketches,
not the final color artwork... but you get the idea!

By the way, for those of you who've already had a chance to try playtesting some version of the game, pay particular attention to the top 3 cards on the page, as they're the most recently added cards and you probably haven't seen them before.

Also, these 3 cards on the page will work in any deck, so if you can't wait to get a taste of the upcoming fun (and you have some Fluxx Blanxx or sticker paper) you can try those new cards right away! (Incidentally, since those 3 cards haven't been playtested as much as the rest of the deck has, please let me know if you try them and you have any playtesting feedback.)


-- Andy Looney

PS: Please note that Hovercraft Eels is designed to be compatible with 1,2,5 and may provide unexpected results if used in conjunction with Inflation.
