So I bought Munchkin Legends at Target to teach my kids how to play and have some family fun. I plan to purchase 2-8 to expand the game. Also all the booster packs to really flesh it out. I guess my bigger question is, if I buy The Good The Bad The Munchkin, and say Munchkin Pathfinder, can all these other releases mix with the others? Or are they manly stand alone games to give a different feel to them. So Munchkin Conan would not mix with the rest (of the stand alone) but play out as its own stand alone Munchkin game with obviously different cards to keep it fresh?

Man this was tough to put into words, hope that made some sense.

Yes, Munchkin Games can all mix together.

Although I prefer not to mix Difference core sets. I like it when more, when I keep to one set at a time, because then, the flavor and theme gets stronger.

Also, the decks can get diluted if you mix lots of different sets.

Eksample. You get a weapon that can only be used by an Elf. But it will take forever to see an Elf card, if you play with both Legends, Good, Bad, Munchkin, Conan and what not .

Also some sets mix´es better than others .

Ahh OK, so maybe what I will do then is focus on boosters and the 2-8 main expansions. From there I can always add a different core set to play stand alone and just mix up the boostes and expansions to that set to flesh it out more.

Thanks!!!

I have to disagree (somewhat).

I do think that mixing all sets doesn't necessarily work terribly well, depending on what you're expecting (though it can definitely be fun, you'll often have issues using -only equipment). I'm not against mixing all sets, but there are definitely some drawbacks.

If you mix just two different sets, you can make some neat combinations. (For example, if you're a Firefly fan, mixing Star Munchkin and The Good, the Bad, and the Munchkin gives you a good space cowboy feel.) There are some interesting combinations of sets, if you mix just a few.

The eerie war chant emanating from the morning fog set chills down every spine. "Lah, lah, la lah, lah, lah."

What we do when we want to play multiple sets, is have 2 door decks and 2 treasure decks. One for each set we're using. That lets us choose which deck we want to focus on on our particular turns but it still allows the mixture to happen. We always play the sped up version where you start with 4 and 4 cards. Those are split evenly between the 2. All treasure rewards are split between the 2 as well.

We play the Firefly version as mentioned above and every Halloween we play Bites + Zombies. (Before Zombies came out it was Bites and Munchkinthulu). I also enjoy mixing Impossible with Super or Impossible with Fu.

Why not also get the original Munchkin to complete the set? Munchkin Legends is different from Munchkin the base game

Mixing sets completely works...I always recommend folks get Munchkin 7: Cheat With Both Hands if they plan on set mixing. It's car mix is for this very purpose. If you want to set mix pick it up early on as you begin expanding your collection.

Only by theme. The contents (classes, races, etc) are the same.
