I like both your ideas. I did have some ideas and was working on a
mega-flux project. Lately though it has been all I can do to play a
game of Python or Zombie Fluxx as it was designed.

Back in the old days before there was the eco, family and other
specifically designed decks I think the idea was more appealing. It
was a matter of keeping a card that had been dropped like doghnuts or
something like that. No problem.

Lately I have been feeling like Mega-Fluxx is almost re-inventing the
game. A game that I think is very well designed. Who am I to mess with

I still have my semi-mega deck but when I play it is met with mixed results.
