“Fun with a desire for more cards using the Oz theme”

If you have played one of the Fluxx games before, then you’ll already know how to play this one. Fluxx games are quite interesting in how they start. You have no rules other than to pick up a card, and play a card. You can not win. As you go along, rules are added to the table as well as goals to win the game. The game can get chaotic at any time and leave you wishing some of the rules would go away, or for someone to win and get it over with so you can start over clean.

This version with the Oz theme brings back all your favorite characters and scenes from the first Oz book, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”. Artwork appears to originally be done with ink outlines and marker infills. Goals allow players to catch a balloon ride and return home to Kansas, or have both the Wicket Witches of the East & West in order to win the game. Most of the Action, Surprise, and Rule cards are the same as other Fluxx games.

The only main drawback is that most of the action, surprise, and all of the rule cards are not themed. Some actions are Oz themed such as the field of poppies and the cyclone, but the game could use more of the themes in these card types.

“Choose one and keep it!”

As you can see, that there are lots of Fluxx games around with different themes. But as so happened I bought the one with this theme. I was searching for a simple card game for easy getaway and quick play. This one looked like the best one. It fits right into your pocket, easy to play, easy to teach and plays very quickly. It can be played from 2 up to 6 players, very flexible. And the card only component really made it easy to setup.
The thing about the game is, it is very unique with the so called system of “a card game with ever changing rules”. I think Fluxx games are the same in system, the only different is just the theme.
So if you like the game system, you can pick any with your favorite themes.
But keep in mind, after more plays, this could prove to be quite stale and boring. New theme is needed.
