The mention of Scientific Fluxx certainly got me thinking! I think
it would have huge educational value and simultaneously be
appealing to a great deal of gaming geeks.
And gaming geeks with kids.
I wouldn't position it as "another one of the Religious Fluxx decks", mind
you. Rather, it would fit alongside Eco.
Science is a broad topic, of course... I mean, ecology is a science
itself. What do you imagine as the subject of a "science" deck? Other than
flashbacks to a classroom in high school.
I'm not sure that a Science deck per se would work. But Chemistry,
Astronomy, etc have potential.
Acid and Base and Salt, Organic and Inorganic, Water... Water
goes with anything... Catalyst...
Planet, Star, Galaxy; Red Giant, Red Dwarf, etc, etc; Nova, Supernova,
Black Hole; Microwave Background; Life...
Igneous, Metamorphic, Sedimentary; Crystal; Continental Drift; Clastic...
(A lot of these idea sets fall into "X is a Y" relations. That would make
a good underlying Fluxx card mechanic for them.)
"And Aholibamah bare Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah: these were the borogoves..."
9/11 did change everything. Since 9/12, the biggest threat to American
society has been the American president. I'd call that a change.
