I’ve always liked games. The Game of Life, Monopoly, card games and ultimately video games out the yazoo. However, I’m always looking for games that the husband and I can play together. It’s way more fun that way to me. So last year, we found a nerdy, awesome, geeklicious game called Munchkin.
Here is the product description from the actual manufacturer: 168 cards, 6 pawns, 6 player cards, game board, rules, and die. What makes this edition “deluxe”? It’s got a big game board to keep your cards in place, and six
colored pawns that you move on the game board as you level up. Plus a card to go with each pawn, to make it easy to remember who is what color and whose sex has changed. Go down in the dungeon. Kill everything you meet. Backstab your friends and steal their stuff. Grab the treasure and run. Admit it. You love it.Munchkin
is the mega-hit card game about dungeon adventure . . . with none of that stupid roleplaying stuff. You and your friends compete to kill monsters and grab magic items. And what magic items. Don the Horny Helmet and the Boots of Butt-Kicking. Wield the Staff of Napalm . . . or maybe the Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment. Start by slaughtering the Potted Plant and the Drooling Slime, and work your way
up to the Plutonium Dragon . . .And it’s illustrated (in full color) by John Kovalic. Fast-playing and silly, Munchkin can reduce any roleplaying group to hysteria. And, while they’re laughing, you can steal their stuff.
Basically, if you’ve ever played Magic: The Gathering or any roleplaying game like D&D you’ll get the idea. But the weapons are hilarious, the attacks fun and the monsters amazing. Plus they have all these super cool expansions like Space (with veiled references to Star Trek and Star Wars) or Zombies (with Zombies!) or tons of other fun stuff.
If you like that kind of thing, like I do, it’s pretty fun. Where else can you change your spouse’s sex?
