Oh!

Hi there!


Chances are you just clicked on my Games Owned or Commented, saw a bunch of Munchkin stuff and recoiled in disgust.

It's not what you think, honest!

I assure you I am a discerning gamer who lives for true strategery and decisions so meaningful they make grown men weepy. I must admit, however, that I do enjoy "stupid fun" just as much as a rarified mind-fight.

So, the Munchkin thing: It's a sweet little bonbon when played by 3 or 4 RPG geeks inside 45 minutes as a storytelling/party game. And while you could play it with 6 angry people for a multi-hour marathon of boredom, bile and eye-biting I can't in any way recommend that.

With that out of the way I bid you welcome to my Carnival of Comments—where the Strong Man has a pituitary disorder, the Bearded Lady isn't, and the Geek strangles hobos on his day off.

Enjoy!

A must-have. More than just more, the cards that come with it utilize a double-fistful of dice, satisfying to shake 'n roll, terrifying to behold from the other side.

A novelty item that adds random weirdness to a relatively stodgy game, like using dice in chess. Agricola is no chess, but you get the idea. My opponent got several nice things while I got sent to gaol and cursed for butchering a tasty, tasty unicorn (-3 VP).

Giving this a tentative 7. It's got a lot going for it on the surface—portability, theme, art—but the simple system feels just the littlest bit clunky. If it smooths out with more plays, I could see this being a staple... we will see.

The global-effect dungeons are cool, flavorful, and actually speed up the game (a Good Thing). Sure, the Portal cards will get lost in massive decks, but you can always shuffle them into the top 150-or-so or just do the "discard four cards" trick to change dungeons. (Or houserule it to three if four is too onerous.)

Doors & Treasures --> 6

Dungeons --> 5

The extra cards are great, but a bunch of the dungeons look like they'll actually increase play time (!) with global effects that strip levels and items, as well as adding "death" to the Bad Stuff of every monster...

Ennui-inducing play time dilation is the fatal flaw of every Munchkin game, lurking deep in its DNA, and every effort must be taken to prevent it from expressing itself.

When we play I like to make sure everyone has at least one piece of game-altering swag; these extra bookmarks will go a long way toward that ideal seeing as how the ones that don't change hands get destroyed.

Much slicker than pennies, poker chips, glass beads or hobo molars. Way more convenient, too. And the "spend a level to roll on the chart" adds to the stupid fun.

YES!!!

This is the way to expand Munchkin—small, affordable "booster packs" that don't bloat the game decks but live off to the side on their own, entering the game through special circumstances.

MORE PLEASE!!!

Holy crap this thing is sturdy. Makes sense if I'm going to be hitting people with it... or getting it chucked at my head.

UPDATE: Man oh man is this thing dead handy. How did we ever Munchkin without it? I dunno, but I now know those were dark days. Beyond gimmick, beyond branded swag, this thing is not only indispensable (especially when you have two—one for the party and one for the monster(s)) but genius the way it allows you to manipulate the gaming metaspace using the Scroll of Reversal. That, and the forlorn looks around the table when the Kill-O-Meters read something ridiculous like 81-80 and the antagonists are all tapped out.

This is the only extra Munchkin bit that I would consider to be a must-have.

A wee bit pricey, but I'm going to assume that Steve Jackson knows what he's doing (even if it's only filling his tube socks with Krugerrands)—regardless, this is dead useful. The board is essential for visualizing relative position in the game; you can tell, at a glance, who must be picked on and who will be most amenable to being your lickspittle.

And it fits inside a standard Munchkin box!

I don't really care for the Epic Munchkin track on the reverse (for play to Level 20) as the game is only really fun for about 30 minutes.
