Firefly Fluxx Review

by xdustineflxon 11/04/2016
I love the game Fluxx. I love the TV show Firefly even more. Put the two together, and it’s a match made in heaven. If you’ve ever played any version of Fluxx in the past, you know how the game works, and it’s no different here. However, if you haven’t played, the rules are really simple. The game starts with […]
