College Park, MD – Looney Labs has released Monty Python Fluxx, the Looney-est version of their ever-popular Fluxx ® card game based on the popular Monty Python ™ license. It’s the card game where the rules change from one turn to the next. Help King Arthur and his Knights find the Holy Grail. Bring a Shrubbery to the Knights who say Ni! Lob the Holy Hand Grenade at the Killer Rabbit – just do it quick before the rules of the game change again! Whether you are a fan of Monty Python or not, you will love this new version of Fluxx because it is fun, unpredictable, and great to play over and over again!

Monty Python Fluxx will be available in specialty stores everywhere starting in October, at a suggested retail price of $20.00. This new version will fly off the shelves like catapulted cows!

In 1999, Fluxx won the prestigious Mensa Select award as one of the five best games of the year. Nearly 500,000 copies and nine years later, Fluxx is still one of the most popular card games in the hobby market today. A game for 2-6 players, Fluxx begins with one basic rule: Draw one card, play one card. As cards are played, new rules change the number of cards played, drawn, or even how many cards can be left in your hand at the end of your turn! Fluxx is a great game for groups of mixed ages, as kids and adults alike can play each other and remain competitive. Fluxx is available in English, German, Japanese and Spanish editions, as well as spin-off versions Family Fluxx, Eco Fluxx, Zombie Fluxx and the brand-new Monty Python Fluxx. Christian Fluxx and Jewish Fluxx expansions work with the original version, plus Fluxx Blanxx card packs are available, allowing players to customize any version of the game with their own personal cards.

Looney Labs designs, produces, and markets award winning, specialty card and board games. Founded in 1996 by Andy and Kristin Looney, and located in College Park, MD, this team has become well-known in the gaming industry for their innovative and unique approach to making and selling games. The Looneys, both former NASA engineers, believe that one of the most important things they create is the fun people have while playing their games. Looney Labs games are proudly made in the USA.
