Coming soon from Looney Labs is a version of Fluxx you may have wondered why it didn’t exist already – Chemistry Fluxx. The newest entry to the series takes it’s propensity for educational, or at the very least informational, cards and themes them with elements and compounds. Definitely better than flash cards you’d have made to study up for a high school exam, this new set will add an introduction to the periodic table and how elements interact with each other while players attempt to bend the rules to favor their winning hand. As explained in the Looney Labs press release:
“Chemistry Fluxx® is the elemental car game where the rules are always changing. Use atoms and laboratory gear to match the current Goal and win! Chemistry Fluxx® is the perfect compound of chance and skill, where you’ll not only be playing with elements and molecules, but you’ll also be learning about them! Chemistry Fluxx® is so much fun you’ll be playing it more than periodically.”
Honestly Chemistry Fluxx just seems like a no-brainer, for too many reasons and puns to count. For someone who wasn’t too great at learning the periodic table the first time around, I might have appreciated this version much more in my adolescence. Still, it’s never too late to learn more about science and the fundamental building blocks of our universe. If you’re interested, Chemistry Fluxx is set to release on May 25th and if you want see more titles from the education line (such as Math or Foreign Languages), please visit their web catalog for it and other varieties of the ever-expanding card game.
