Description

Munchkin is a satirical card game based on the clichés and oddities of Dungeons and Dragons and other role-playing games. Each player starts at level 1 and the winner is the first player to reach level 10. Players can acquire familiar D&D style character classes during the game which determine to some extent the cards they can play.

Hilarious treachery with a somewhat tricky learning curve

Reviewed by on

My experience with Munchkin echoes the reviews written by Mattew S and Johan C. The core of this game revolves around the social interaction sparked by efforts to help or sabotage each other's progress through the dungeon. To my mind, the basic mechanics are easy to understand. However, I was surprised by how difficult my gaming group found the rules. Other players took a long time to grasp who cards can be used to slow or speed each other's advancement. This might simply be a quirk of my group, but if you are thinking of buying this game, take thought for the learning curve and consider whether your group will be able to manage it.

Fuper fun and amazingly nostalgic

Reviewed by on

This was the very first board game I ever received and it only spread my love for the genre even further! This board game is a lovely blend between a card game and an almost ladder-esc type of game in which players have the oppourtunity to lie, extort and help each other to victory, or to go for the solo win. An excellent game of strategy filled with a whole bunch of fun names and cute creatures. The only problem is that some rules you may need to google online for as their interactions may be confusing, but there is a really helpful online community.

Comedic dungeon crawler

Reviewed by on

You can start as a human male and end up as a half elf, wearing pantyhose of giant strength, swinging a rat on a stick and drinking a potions of halitosis. It's a game full of silly names and silly items doing silly things that makes one of those game nights just a bit less serious. It's fun to play even when you get killed by a insurance salesman or Gazebo!

My only gripe with this game is the very long rule book. It takes about 30 minutes to go through the rules with new players and it's a lot to take in.
