My husband doesn't like Fluxx due to the randomness. I like it alot (I am not very strategic minded and like fast ganes).
BUT, My husband does like Zombie Fluxx becuase it has a little bit more strategy, I guess- I haven't found it yet though.
(My kids like EcoFLuxx.)

re randomness: Have you played Zombie Fluxx? The "Creeper" mechanic introduced in Zombie adds a lot more strategery to the game, IMO. Nothing serious or challenging-- it's still zany as all get out (as it should be)-- but it was enough to convince a couple of my more hardcore gamenerd friends that Fluxx is a game actually worth playing sober. :-)
I was happy to see that Martian Fluxx is going to have Creepers, too, in the form of "Pathetic Huuumans". Hopefully Monty Python will have them as well (maybe singing lumberjacks? or knights who say "NI"?)
