First look: Monty Python Fluxx

We just received our copy of Monty Python Fluxx from Looney Labs today, and I had a quick look through the cards. Despite what I saw in a prototype deck at GTS ’08, it appears the card selection has been de-spammed – as in, no cards with the word “Spam” on them. The cards favor Monty Python and the Holy Grail over all other Pythonisms (with a few other references sneaking in), which isn’t a bad idea when trying to appeal to the gamer market. In addition to the Creeper mechanic from Zombie Fluxx (winner of Best Card Game in our 2008 Ogre’s Choice Awards), some of the cards seem to have dual purposes – certain situations that cause them to function differently, or allow them to be sacrificed for an effect. In all, just from this early glance at what Monty Python Fluxx has to offer, this may be another Keeper. (*ahem*) We’ll post a full review to our reviews section in the days ahead, once I’ve rallied some players.

  1. They need to do a fluxx drinking or dating game.

    btw I love the picture of the cave explorer, especially how you guys modify it for the holidays!

  2. Dear Ogre Cave,

    I don’t know if its possible but I am enquiring if I may send my RPG game ATLAS to your august publication for review. If it’s ok to send to you for review I would love to send it to you. So please feel free to send me your contact address so I can pop it in the post to you. Below is a link to the games website for a preliminary look but I would be more than happy to send you the complete game.

    Kind regards
