We were at Target yesterday and I ran across the Munchkin card game. I had seen it there months ago and passed on it with the intention of getting it "next time". I never saw it again for the next several months until yesterday. As I picked it up I noticed the price was only $12.48 because it was on the clearance aisle. I immediately threw it in our cart and we continued our shopping.
I have not played it yet but I have read through the rules. My impression is that this game can be a lot of fun. I have also visited the web site and downloaded all of the free support documents available. I also noticed that there are many expansion sets, boosters, game sets in other genres and licenses, a board game, and even a set of role-playing game books based on Munchkin.
I figured there has to be some other people out there in the blogosphere that have experience with the Munchkin line of games. I have a few questions for anyone that has the inclination to answer them:
Are the other sets like Star Munchkin, Munchkin Fu, Munchkin Conan, Munchkin Pathfinder, etc. just the same game ever so slightly tweaked or do they offer any new content/options?
Are there any sets that you would recommend?
Would you recommend the Munchkin Quest board game?
Would you recommend the Munchkin RPG?
Thanks to any and all who take the time to answer.
