Munchkin pawns are plastic figures of the Munchkin Man in six different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. They were released with Munchkin Quest, then made available for purchase separately. The pawns have a special rule for use in any Munchkin card game:
Any time you are entitled to go up a level – or when you do something that WOULD earn you a level if you weren't already Level 9 – you may, instead, place a Munchkin pawn in front of you. In any combat, you may discard it for a 1d6 bonus. You may only have one in front of you at a time.
