Mysterium & Fluxx

Played Mysterium tonight with Reesa and Michelle and had an absolute blast. (Sorry you missed out Stanley and Lori.)

The artwork is beautiful. The game is a cooperative Clue where a ghost passes clues to you about the murderer through abstract artwork.

We were successful in our first playthrough as a team. It was a great party game with a fair bit of setup. But it’s very easy to understand once you get going.

After this, we played possibly the wildest game of Fluxx. This is a game where you start with simple rules of “Draw 1, Play 1.”

Then the rules can change the number of draws. Or plays. Or the number if cards in your hand.

The goals to win also change constantly.

It’s a fun game where everything changes so quickly it’s hard to have any kind of strategy.

We spent most of the game with a hand limit of zero. We picked and played the same card for turn after turn. Until we finally got to draw 4 cards at once and Reesa got both cards needed to attain the goal and won.
