Drew, our quarter-lifer (look that up on Google) friend and consultant, suggested that we check out NatureFluxx so we headed out to a game store and got a copy. That, along with some fair-trade chocolate, made for an interesting afternoon at the shop. We loved the game and so here we are! Lots of fun, easy to learn, lots of twists and turns, and did we mention it was lots of fun? Add fair-trade chocolate to anything, of course, and it is fun. Right?
About the Game:
In the wild, you must adapt to survive! Will you win by having your Bears Eat Fish? Or will someone change the Goal so that their Frogs and Insects can make Night Music? Play ecology themed Actions and Rules like Scavenger or Composting, but watch out for Creeper cards like Forest Fire, that can hurt everyone! Discover a little about how things go together, with NatureFluxx - the nature game of ever-changing rules!
Playtime: 10-40 minutes
How To Play
It all begins with one basic rule: Draw one card, Play one card. You start with a hand of three cards... add the card you drew to your hand, and then choose one card to play, following the directions written on your chosen card. As cards are drawn and played from the deck, the rules of the game change from how many cards are drawn, played or even how many cards you can hold at the end of your turn. This ecological version of Fluxx introduces a new type of "Eats" Goal which demonstrate food-web connections, and three new Creepers representing natural disasters (Forest Fire, Drought, and Flood) which affect all players.
