I played Munchkin for the first time last night with my 3-person gaming group. I had been avoiding this game because of its theme, art, and general "kiddy" look. Too bad! It was an absolute blast. Perhaps the overall look and theme isn't my cup of tea, but the game is definitely very high when it comes to the fun factor. Our group had lots of laughs playing. I like games that are a combination of luck and skill, and Munchkin fits that bill too. I totally misjudged this game b/c of its appearance. I look forward to playing again.

Aaarrrrgghhh! You have become one of the people making this game be Steve Jackson Games primary focus be Munchkin and taking away my dream of them working on Car Wars again. Infidel! J/K it is a fun silly game in moderation but I can get my fill pretty quickly if it is played too often in a short time span. My son and I prefer Munchkin Quest the board game but it takes quite a while to play. Have fun but watch your back!

yeah, i don't see myself wanting to play this game every time we meet. sometimes we have heavy game nights playing Descent: Journeys in the Dark or Lord of the Rings, sometimes we have medium nights, and sometimes we have lighter nights. this is definitely for those lighter nights when we have a tad less time and just want to have some fun.

definitely watching my back, too . . . ninja

Note that Munchkin exists in many other themes (Sci-Fi, Superheroes, Spies, Cthulhu), with very similar mechanics (and the same type of humor).

Also read the classic Munchkin Dungeon reviews. This is my favorite expansion set b/c it adds "global effects" that temporarily change the game for everyone for a few turns.

Munchkin Zombie comes out soon. The players are zombies and most of the monsters are humans.
