Munchkin - Base Game (Classic edition)
MUNCHKIN : Base Game (Classic edition)
Munchkin is a card game based Dungeon Crawler, in which, your objective is to get the treasure and get out
again.  Compete against your friends to get to the treasure and get it safely home again, but watch your back
as the monsters in the game are not the only ones trying to take you down, your friends will also be trying to get
the treasure from you.
The feel of this game is very much Dungeons & Dragons, but unlike Dungeons & Dragons, doesnt get weighed
down with all that role-playing guff.

Munchkin was designed by a living legend in the Fantasay Gaming world, Steven Jackson.  He helped with the
Dungeons and Dragons Rulebook back in the 80's, he has also written a series of "Fighting Fantasy" books (A
simplified RPG mixed with a "pick-a-path"/"choose-your-own-adventure" book), and many other great fantasy
gaming works.

This is what the creators say about this game:

Go down in the dungeon. Kill everything you meet. Backstab your friends and steal their stuff. Grab the treasure
and run.

Admit it. You love it.

This award-winning card game, designed by Steve Jackson, captures the essence of the dungeon experience...
with none of that stupid roleplaying stuff. You and your friends compete to kill monsters and grab magic items.
And what magic items! Don the Horny Helmet and the Boots of Butt-Kicking. Wield the Staff of Napalm... or
maybe the Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment. Start by slaughtering the Potted Plant and the Drooling Slime,
and work your way up to the Plutonium Dragon...

And it's illustrated by John Kovalic! Fast-playing and silly, Munchkin can reduce any roleplaying group to hysteria.
And, while they're laughing, you can steal their stuff.

Part of the Munchkin series.
Munchkin is a satirical card game based on the clichés and oddities of Dungeons and Dragons and other role
-playing games. Each player starts at level 1 and the winner is the first player to reach level 10. Players can acquire
familiar D&D style character classes during the game which determine to some extent the cards they can play.

There are two types of cards - treasure and encounters. Each turn the current players 'kicks down the door' - drawing
an encounter card from the deck. Usually this will involve battling a monster. Monsters have their own levels and players
must try and overcome it using the levels, weapons and powers they have acquired during the game or run away. Other
players can chose to help the player or hinder by adding extra monsters to the encounter. Defeating a monster will
usually result in drawing treasure cards and acquiring levels. Being defeated by a monster results in "bad stuff" which
usually involves losing levels and treasure.

In May 2010, Steve Jackson Games made the "big announcement." Many rules and cards were changed. See The
Great 2010 Munchkin Changeover for details. Of note to Munchkin fans, the Kneepads of Allure card, which had been
removed in the 14th printing, was added back to the game but modified to be less powerful.
