The rules are simple at first: everyone starts by drawing one card and playing one card.

But not so fast!—throughout the game, cards that change the rules and the goal of the game make for ever-evolving game play. Every turn can change your fate, and victory (or defeat) might not be as certain as you think…

Fluxx 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. Even the object of the game will often change as you play, as players swap out one goal card for another. Can you achieve World Peace before someone changes the goal to Bread and Chocolate?

Because Fluxx is "the game of ever-changing rules," it is an excellent "text" for encouraging close reading to determine what is said explicitly, to argue what can be logically inferred, and for citing specific text to support players' conclusions. Fluxx is also often used in group settings focused on teaching social skills because it lends itself well to discussions about addressing different point of view, discussing differences politely, coming to consensus through discussion, and coping successfully with unknowns and constant change.
