Review - Fluxx By Looney Labs

The Blurb

Fluxx is a card game in which the cards themselves determine the current rules of the game. By playing cards, you change numerous aspects of the game: how to draw cards, how to play cards, and even how to win.
At the start of the game, each player holds three cards and on a turn a player draws one card, then plays one card. By playing cards, you can put new rules into play that change numerous aspects of the game: how many cards to draw or play, how many cards you can hold in hand or keep on the table in front of you, and (most importantly) how to win the game. There are many editions, themed siblings, and promo cards available.

AEG 2015 Blackbox Draft - Round 2

Round One Recap:

Jim: Bacon Wars really threw a bacon-greased wrench into the whole draft. Once they were allowed to be a participant, it was difficult to tell how the rest of the first round would fall.

Mike: You said it, Jim!  Bacon Wars really was the lynchpin of the draft this year.  Look how drastically the field has been altered now that the Nokeepers are unable to follow their roadmap.  Will the second round hold as many surprises as the first?
