Fluxx Remixx Released
Looney Labs has released Fluxx Remixx, a new edition of the base game with some tweaks. "This version of the base game is intended to be a little more advanced and a little more chaotic than the “milk and cookies” version. With a whole new slate of Goals to work toward and New Rules, Actions, and Surprises that keep things hopping, you can be sure zaniness will ensue! And since this is a "remix," it's got musical references throughout, just for the fun of it."

Reviews
The Chronicles of Avel (The Tabletop Family): “If you have been looking for an event game the whole family will love, Chronicles of Avel is the one! This is a bar setting game for me and if it doesn’t sweep the family board game awards this year I’ll be shocked.”

Dice Miner (Gaming With Sidekicks): “It’s a lot of fun. It plays quick, is easy to explain, and hasn’t gotten old after over a dozen plays and three solo plays. The Heroes add a nice little touch of variety. The dice are a little oversized and feel great in your hands and the cardboard quality of the Hero cards/tiles and the mountain are top notch.”
