Looney Labs has announced the next version of the popular Fluxx card game:  Pirate Fluxx.  Scheduled to release on February 11, 2011, this pirate-themed version of the highly popular card game will feature a new game mechanic and a deck of new cards.


The all-new “Surprise” cards add a new feature to the Fluxx game:  for the first time in the history of the game players will be able to play these special cards out of turn to react to the actions of the other players.


New cards in the set include pirate-themed cards such as “Talk Like a Pirate,” the “Captain’s Hat,” and “Mutiny!”


The game comes packaged in a six-pack countertop display box.  Retailers can also purchase a special Advance Demo Kit during January.  The demo kit includes an advance copy of the game, a poster and sell sheet, and 25 copies of the “Skullduggery” promo card.


Pirate Fluxx will have a suggested retail price of $16.00.  The stock number will be LOO-045. 


Fluxx is a fast-paced humorous card game suitable for two to five players.  A number of different themed versions have been released, and the game has been a perennial bestseller for Looney Labs.
