Q: In Olympus Loonacy Jupiter and Zeus have the same art; are we supposed to just match the pictures?
A: Yes, the image is the same for Jupiter and Zeus because he’s the same God just with different names, one Greek, one Roman. What matters is matching up the art. Throughout the deck we used the Greek name sometimes and the Roman name other times, giving both approximately equal representation. For those who know both names, it’s interesting, and for those who don’t it’s educational.
Q: How can I keep someone from cheating on the draw because they can tell which Loonacy cards are promos?
…I have the 2014 Xmas gift (Fruitcake Fun Pack) that has the extra loonacy cards with the fruitcake that I mixed in with the game. The coloring of the cards is a very slight shade off. Normally I don’t notice because I am not focused on that. But my 12 year old does. And that makes a difference if she picks first or not (basically, will a fruitcake at that moment benefit her).
A: Since we can’t fix the slight variations in cardback color that are bound to happen with promo cards, our best solution is to make the draw phase more structured:
Before the game, decide on a set draw order. Decide who will always draw first, and players will then draw in order around the circle.
Everyone will still hold their cards face down and look simultaneously, of course.
Yes, this means that observant players may still know that they (or another) has a card which is guaranteed to be playable, but at least it prevents the irritating “I’m just going to hover here and let someone else draw first because I don’t want that top card, because I know it’s a Fruitcake.”
Q: Which editions of Fluxx did Looney Labs take images from for original Loonacy?
A: Here’s a chart of which Fluxx versions each picture came from:
The “regular” Fluxx images were the versions used in the Special Edition originally made for Target, and also used in Fluxx: The Board Game.
