Good tongue in cheek entertainment,

This review is from: Munchkin Color Card Game (Game)
I bought this game after playing it with some friends. If you're a role-player with any sort of sense of humour you'll love it.
It's a card game where you compete against your fellow players by bashing down doors, fighting monsters, and collecting loot. All these actions are performed by turning cards, with the odd die roll thrown in. The first player to ascend to the heady heights of level 10 wins.
The beauty of the game is that it takes the mickey out of all those fantasy role-playing stereotypes, so you end up with weird equipment like "kneepads of allure". Oh, and you also get to stitch up your fellow players.
If you ever find yourself with an hour to kill before or after an RPG session, get the game and keep it handy. Great entertainment.
