Maybe you will try this release and think “Vell, Astronomy Fluxx's just zis game, you know?” Or maybe you'll think, like I do, “Hey, you sass that Hoopy Fluxx? There's a frood that really knows where it's towel is.” It's a guide to our little solar system that can both entertain and educate in a Mostly Harmless way.
Fantasy Fluxx could have easily have been a stuffy version of the same tired old Fantasy stuff we've seen before. Instead, the lighthearted take makes it true to the “Fluxx Feel.”
Never were things of such size before, and they held strange colours that could not be put into any words.
This is not Kemet. This is not Root. What it is is a much more accessible -dare I say- gateway type of experience. Conqueror:TC feels like, and this is not a slam against it, a refinement of Dudes on a Map games back before the term Dudes on the Map was even invented. (Are we still calling them Dudes? Is it people on a map now?).
don't wanna know your name
'Cause you don't look the same
The way you did before
Okay, you think you got a pretty face
But the rest o' you is out of place
You looked all right before
We had a number of “High Five” moments when figuring out a particularly perplexing puzzle. I wouldn't suggest it as a starting point for the Exit series, but it is a fun experience if you have found yourself addicted to Exit.
Kosmos may have been aiming for a more relaxed version of the escape room genre with this release but it misses that mark.
