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.
Munchkin captures the dungeon experience... with none of that stupid roleplaying stuff. All you have to do is 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...
Fast-playing and silly, Munchkin can reduce any roleplaying group to hysteria. And while they're laughing, you can steal their stuff.

|Munchkin is a game which is firmly a tongue-in-cheek parody of dungeon crawl games. Players have to kill monsters they meet to gain levels, the object being to be the first to gain 10 levels, while at the same time trying to prevent your opponents from doing the same. It's lots of fun and can actually be played with 2 just as easily as playing with 3 or more.
The base game now has several expansion decks to add variety to the game, as well as spin-offs for other genres such as spies, Cthulu, Western and sci-fi. There are even rules to combine everything into one massive game!

|I'll keep it short and sweet: this is a perfect way to play a typical old-school dungeon crawl without dealing with things like staying in character. It's hack and slash in its most condensed form. Kill a bunch of things and take their stuff. Screw your friends over while you're at it. Loads of fun, and even better with the miniatures and/or expansion sets. You can even combine it Space Munchkin for added effect! :)|

Munchkin, first of all, is a humorous game, and as such, despite its name, should not ever be played with a real munchkin who can’t loose. There, you’ve been warned.
Now, what is Munchkin? A card game for role-players, about hack, slash, loot and all that other good stuff. The objective of the game? To be the biggest munchkin around, first to advance their character to level 10. The means? Well, I have mentioned hack, slash and loot, haven’t I?
Obviously, merely playing this game can’t be what is fun about it – it’s a bit simple for that. It’s the parody that matters, so while anyone should have a good laugh with this game, fantasy role-players will get the most out of this game.
All in all, Munchkin is a great game if you’re looking for a laugh. In the right crowd (like, say, your role-playing group), chances are you’ll waste the night away (instead of killing the evil overlord, mayhaps). Definitely recommended.
