This recently came up with a game (and was resolved in the true munchkiny way of screaming for about 5 minutes at each other)

One player has a rain coat on ("no one may throw potions except you in your combats" not exact wording but pretty close if i can remember correctly) and after many monster enhancers put on to try and beat me someone threw the cotion of ponfusion card at the monster (making him actually beat me) I attempted to argue that the cotion was in fact a potion and this cannot be done however the argument was that only cards with potion in the name are potions (which is logical) and they said if something like "pretty balloons" could be used against the raincoat then why not the "Cotion of Ponfusion" we fought over this for about 5 minutes at the end me asserting that the cotion was in fact not a potion and ended up getting my behind handed to me by the monster.

I was wondering other peoples thoughts on the issue.

Is the "Cotion of Ponfusion" a potion or not?

It's pretty obvious that it's a potion. The Spoonerized name, of course, is the joke.

However, if you enjoy the Munchkinly screaming matches over rules interpretations, then go ahead and make a new call every time someone wants to use it. It's your game!

Who IS this masked man? And WHY has he never been photographed together with 6 year old millionaire playboy Calvin?

From the SJG Munchkin FAQ - http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/faq/#potions

Quote:
Q. Are cards like Yuppie Water, that don't say "Potion" on them but LOOK like Potions, considered potions for rules purposes?

A. Yes. If it's a liquid in a container, it can be considered a potion.
