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

Subject: [Fluxx] Monty Python Preview Cards
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
