I agree with mice about the difficulties in combining such different versions of Fluxx, and don't recommend it at this point.

However, we were talking about Meta Fluxx, which is something else, or rather, will be at some point. Meta Fluxx will be a packet containing a selection of interesting new Meta Rule cards.

I would call what mice was talking about Mega Fluxx not Meta Fluxx.

I was very aggressive in putting together a mega deck with all the
unique cards in it. I had purchased all the decks that were available
at that point.

It kinda makes sense with the 1.x, 2.x, 3.x decks. That and maybe the
boosters.Spanish deck also has a lot commonality.

But really with the specialty decks like Eco, Stoner, Zombie, and now
MP it makes less.

There aren't any goals that connect the decks. In my mind there has to
be a cross connect in order for it to be a game and not a collection.

Somehow you would have create intuitive Goal cards that would connect the

Like for example Fundamentalism (Bible + Snakes) could connect the
Christian Booster and the Eco deck.

If somehow you created all those connector goals that still would not
make the deck a great Flux deck. It still would have WAY too many
cards and thus make the game long and dare I say it boring.

The beauty of the Fluxx game is not the cards its the beautiful and
fun game play. IMO a Mega Fluxx deck no matter how clever you are
about it is missing that convergence of beauty and light.

Its like a Frankenstein's Monster pagent contestant. - Seems like it
would win but in reality its a gahstly mess

Just my opinion.
