Looney Labs 5512576 Game Star Fluxx
The wonderful artwork aside - this game has it all. Educational (for me the teacher)and high interest fun (for students)and can be played by 2 or more because the rules have included how to do this.
With five levels of play, anyone in my class can have fun and learn some chemistry while engaging higher level thinking to beat their opponent. We could get started quickly playing the element level and as they were ready for more sophisticated play, we moved to the next level.
I enjoy Magic the Gathering and this has some of those elements while still teaching about the Periodic Table. Love the blank cards so they can create new characters (wonderful writing assignment to tie in with science)
Box is sturdy as well as the cards. Good thing cuz play can get intense when everyone is down to the last card or too. Very clever having the discard pile called the toxic waste dump too. Did not feel or look cheesy at all.
So glad I got this!
