Order of events in a Fluxx turn
2
3
Fluxx can be a complicated game which offers many opportunities to do different kinds of things on your turn, including things that happen "at the end of your turn", "at the beginning of your turn", or even "before beginning your turn" as well as including conditions of being "during your turn" or "not during your turn." When do these events and phases begin and end? Here's an ordered list of when certain things would happen. Of course, not all of these cards or types of cards are in every deck, so treat each line item on an "if applicable" basis.
