  • Munchkin

    Encountered a set of games called Munchkin by Steven Jackson Games, the base game seems to be a parody of the dungeon and dragon genre.

    Has anyone played this game or any other variations from The World of Munchkin series?

    Re: Munchkin

    I purchased the base Munchkin game some years ago and played it once with two other people.

    The game series has a running joke with "you start off as a level 1 human with no class".

    At this point in time there are 15 games which are:
    • Munchkin (base game - on the Dungeons and Dragons genre)
    • Star Munchkin (space opera)
    • Munchkin Fu (martial arts)
    • Munchkin Bites! (horror - vampire)
    • Super Munchkin (superhero)
    • Munchkin Impossible (spy)
    • Munchkin Cthulhu (horror)
    • The Good, The Bad, and The Munchkin (western)
    • Munchkin Booty (pirate)
    • Munchkin Zombies (horror)
    • Munchkin Axe Cop
    • Munchkin Conan
    • Munchkin Apocalypse (end of the world)
    • Munchkin Legends (a collection of various fantasy stories)
    • Munchkin Pathfinder

    The game tends to parody common things and tries to twist it in a humorous way. For instance in the base Munchkin game there is a card that says a 11 foot pole (based on the saying "I wouldn't touch that with a 10 foot pole").
