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

I have only started playing this game for a few months now  and  it has been a lot of fun. So i looked into the game further and found that the expansions are really quite cheap. so i bought up a few to add to the main set. 
I prefer the larger games of six players over the smaller games and more cards get played and sorts of crazy antics arise. Even being a lower level while others are higher doesn't mean you are out of the race at all. 

The game mechanic is a simple but effective one, beat the monsters score to win. sounds easy but you have to consider the other players, they may decide to boost the monster to a higher level with an upgrade card and you might have to ask for aid forgoing some of your treasure. 

                                                Munchkin 4 – The Need for Steed is a larger expansion. This set introduces Steeds,  including not just the Dragon and the Tiger, but the Giant Mutant Gerbil the Chicken The set also has lots and lots of new Hirelings. They are valuable characters to add to your retinue, use their special abilities, and sacrifice them to save your own skin. The card in the set called MBA in management allows you to have two hirelings at one time. These have made a fair appearance in the games with a lot more monsters to fight against      

Booster Packs I have included to my set.

 I couldn't have played munchkin with out adding the Conan set. Based on the new movie. These cards let you upgrade your character with great items like the Mask of Acheron or the Barbarian BootiesSword of Corin or the Stygian Talons.  New monsters like the Sand Warriors, the Dweller and Khalar Zym himself make munchkin life a little bit more dangerous.

Race modifiers Dark and High gives a nice twist to the game, encouraging players to either help or become a hindrance to other players to gain levels. The class modifier Master helps to gain extra treasures, and of course the Reloaded Die the help players get out of sticky situations.

Meet the Sparkly Good Fairy. She wants all the munchkins to play nice, and she's willing to bash heads to make sure they do. Play her way, and she'll bribe you with Fairy Dust. Otherwise, you might end up fighting her instead. And if you don't take her out, she'll be back again and again . . .
The set introduces the Sparkly Good Fairy and her deck of Fairy Dust cards. These extra rewards are for players who are willing to help each other. This small deck makes a big difference to the games as each players wants a fairy dust reward. Some rewards giving extra hands to carry items or stops players interfering in crucial combats. 

Of all of the small booster expansion this one has had the biggest impact on the games we have played, as it has become a great bargaining tool for helping other players.

One of the five Seasonal boosters bringing new Santa monsters like Teeny Tiny TimRecalled Toys, and Mrs. Claus. You know what you have to do. Armor yourself in Tinsel, and grab the Snow Shoes and the Reindeer HatThis set has been so much fun that i will leave them in the set all year round. One of my Favourite items is the Festivus pole.
The guild is the hot web series about a gaming group,  Munchkin The Guild! Add's Codex, Vork, Clara, Bladezzz, Tink, and the mighty Zaboo to the adventures. Watch The Guild here. Some great cards in this set such as Elected guild leader.

This was the last booster pack that i bought. i thought it was need as there was lots of equipment to upgrade players and not much to enhance the monsters. Some of the upgrade cards recycle themselves if the attached 
monsters aren't defeated.

A Selection of awesome new dragons to add to the Dungeons.  Dragons are fearsome! Dragons are cool! Dragons have LOTS of treasure for munchkins to loot! 


  1. Munchkin is great. That fairy idea is pretty interesting as there is normally almost no reason to cooperate. Does it work out well in practice?

  2. yeah the Fairy dust cards do really make a positive impact on the game. Most games i have play was with this booster and i now feel its absence when i am playing other peoples set.
