You and your friends won't be able to stop laughing as you play the MUNCHKIN Deluxe Steve Jackson Standalone Game. This dungeon-exploring adventure has the twisted humor of Steve Jackson throughout as you all seek the treasure, and along the way, you'll stab each other in the back, steal each others' stuff and kill all the villains. Villains in this game range from the Potted Plant to the Plutonium Dragon and you and your friends compete to defeat them with weapons like the Staff of Napalm, the Boots of Butt-Kicking and the Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment. This deluxe Munchkin game includes a rule sheet, a six-sided die, gameboard, 12 pawns with plastic stands, and 168 Munchkin cards. Ages 13 and up.
Our family LOVES this game! Our older children, aged 20 and 18, still beg to play when we get together. Fun for all ages, for sure! This is our second purchase (old game board was looking sad it was played so often)
We LOVE this game. My 7 year old even enjoys it. It is fun getting to "stab" the other players in the back. We did change a few of the words on the cards because they are words we don't use in our house.
This is a fun game but make sure you play it with someone who knows what they're doing because the rulebook is TERRIBLE. This is an incredibly simple game, but the rulebook makes it sound a lot harder than it actually is. Because of this, I dropped the quality rating of the game down. In my opinion, the quality of the game drops if you have a rulebook that can't properly teach you how to play the game.
I played Munchkin with a group of my friends and instantly fell in love with it. At first, it was pretty hard to understand but after a few rounds of the game, I was backstabbing and gaining levels just like everyone else!
This game is extremely complicated to figure out how to play, even for an adult. It seems to have potential to be a fun game for teens an adults if one can figure out how to play. :) However, a few of the cards have swears on them and some of the characters on the cards are inappropriately dressed for the suggested age of 10 years. I am returning this game because of this. I hope the helps anyone that might have the same concerns for their children.
