Olympus Fluxx (“The Ever-Changing Card Game of the Gods!”) from Looney Labs was released last year, a new Greek mythology themed version, one of many available, of the card game with self-amendable rules.
“Fluxx is a card game in which the cards themselves determine the current rules of the game. By playing cards, you change numerous aspects of the game: how to draw cards, how to play cards, and even how to win. At the start of the game, each player holds three cards and on a turn a player draws one card, then plays one card. By playing cards, you can put new rules into play that change numerous aspects of the game: how many cards to draw or play, how many cards you can hold in hand or keep on the table in front of you, and (most importantly) how to win the game. Get ready to Fluxx things up with the deities on Mount Olympus! Yes, the classic game of ever-changing rules is taking on the classics of Greek and Roman mythology! Twenty-one of the best-known mythological characters are included, each beautifully depicted in stunning new illustrations by Echo Chernik! Party with the pantheon of gods and goddesses of ancient Greece — but be sure to use their Roman names instead if the New Rule “Roman Times” is in play! Zeus demands that you join in the fun!”
If you’re not already familiar with the game, the basics are super simple, but, because the rules change as players add and remove cards from play that amend the rules, it can get wild really quickly.
