Fluxx: the Board Game
, by Looney Labs
(the creators of the "Looney Pyramids" and the "Fluxx" card game series) was recently released. A common complaint is that the pegs used for tracking the current rules of the game don't seat fully in the pegboards. While the game is
all about change, rules changing every time the board is bumped is a tad too much flux for most people.
Andrew Looney proposed affixing foam "feet" at the corners on his blog, Wunderland
. Fan Daniel Hess (of Midsouth Makers) created a 3D-printable pegboard tray
to serve the same purpose: lifting the board from the table so the pegs can fully seat.
When I received my demo copy today, I hacked together the following solution, using only cellotape and one of the punchout frames from the included board tiles. The results are sturdy, snazzy (if I may say so myself), and in keeping with the aesthetic of the components (since they use identical material). You'll need
* your very own copy of Fluxx: the Board Game, complete with
* at least one of the punchout frames; and
* a utility knife, with, of course,
* a good cutting surface; and don't forget
* the cellotape.
