Looney Labs has announced two new versions of Fluxx coming soon. First is a new variant, Holiday Fluxx, which brings Fluxx to the wintery, holiday season. The other is Version 5.0 of the basic game.
There’s also this video, because why not.


From the announcement:

We have TWO new versions of Fluxx on the way to stores right now: Holiday Fluxx and Fluxx version 5.0!

Holiday Fluxx will be the perfect game to play during any holiday gathering from Halloween to New Year’s Day. The charming, vintage-style illustrations were done for us by Ali Douglass, and we’re all absolutely delighted with the way it came together. I’m hoping it will quickly become a tradition for families to play Holiday Fluxx together after one or another of those big holiday dinners. It’s the most wonderful game of the year!

As for 5.0, it’s time for an update. It’s been six years since the last big revision to our flagship game, and we’ve created a lot of other versions of Fluxx since then. Indeed, the game has evolved quite a bit since the first edition, which we published almost 20 years ago. With lessons learned from those other Fluxxes and all the games of version 4.0 we’ve played over the years, we’ve found quite a few things we wanted to update.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Got to play an advance copy of Holiday Fluxx on Saturday, it was pretty solid. Most fun I’ve had with fluxx in a while.

  • Soulfinger

    I got to play Fluxx once. It made me wish that my grandfather was still alive, because sitting by his deathbed a second time would be more enjoyable. I considered cutting the brake lines of the people who brought this abomination to game night, but I think someone beat me too it as we never saw them again.

      I hate this game SO MUCH!

        Liking Fluxx is a good litmus test for the worth of a person.

          I bought Switzerland with how much I like Fluxx.

    Death match time, Fluxx vs Munchkin

    Would you prefer Fluxx to the bloody flux?

    • Soulfinger

      I would rather play Munchkin while dying of dysentery than play Fluxx again. In fact, I’d do that while sober and listening to someone describe in detail the D&D character that he has played since high school.

    Junior high?
