The monsters are down in the dungeon, waiting. Look at them. So smug. Gather your friends together, kick down the doors, and wipe the smiles right off those monsters’ faces. Then, when your friends aren’t looking, stab them in the back and take their stu
Kill the monster, grab the treasure, stab your buddy. That's what it's all about. Now, Munchkin comes to the boardgame.
Cooperate with the whole group, adventure with a partner, or strike out on your own. You don't know what's behind a door until you open it, and then another tile is added to the dungeon.

It uses the basic rules of the card game combined with a dungeon that you build as the game progresses, the rules are easy to follow and have some amusing twists that lead to a lot of discussion. There is the scope to gang up on other players or to play individually adn race to finish first.
The artwork as usual is great overall a fantastic product.
If anyone has played the original Munchkin, you'll know it's a relatively simple game (the standard version just being a pack of cards and a dice). It's very easy to pickup, with only a couple of pages of rules that are quick to learn. Game play concepts are simple and a game probably takes 30 minutes to an hour. Munchkin Quest on the other hand comes with 16 pages (as I recall) of rules, and took around 3-4 hours the first time we played it.
Munchkin is a relatively simple game, with few rules or stages to a players turn. It's relatively simple and a lot of the fun comes from playing against the other players - doing each other over and "being a munchkin". Munchkin Quest on the other hand the players are also playing against monsters as they explore a dungeon, that they generate tile by tile each turn, building a labyrinth of rooms (this takes up quite a bit of table space). What that means in practise is that the turn of each player is broken up into multiple stages which can end up taking quite a while. If you then combine this with multiple players, you can end up sitting waiting for quite some time (sometimes 15 minutes or so) before you get another turn, which really breaks up the momentum of the game.
I mentioned the notion of 'being a munchkin' in the previous paragraph, which won't really mean much to people who are unfamiliar with this game, or munchkin, but essentially both games rely on the idea that you will expend cards either in support or against fellow players. In Munchkin this plays quite naturally and always felt in quite good spirit.Read more ›
First things first. Do not assume you know this game because you are a master of munchkin card games. The game is very different with a lot more depth.
Sadly a few things are missing from this box that would help out (in my eyes) for example the little character cards that come with the deluxe munchkin game.
Everything comes neatly packaged in its own re sealable bag (something I found out whilst ripping a bag open out of eagerness) which helps keep a lot of the main items separate.
The ability to be able to play this as two player straight out of the box is a real bonus. The art of each card is excellent and helps bring out the humour of munchkin.
if you are a fan of the other Steve Jackson games I would definitely recommend this set. Only playable by up to 4 players to begin with, but there are expansion packs to increase that number. Along with adding cards/rooms/portals etc.

Fun addition to the Munchkin range of games. Borrowed this from someone and loved it so much I had to purchase a set .Published on 28 May 2014 by Anji Rennie
Very good product, very fun game. It's a shame it takes so long to get through the first game but once you manage to get the rules it's really amusing.Published on 18 Oct. 2013 by Badwolf

I truly have nothing more to say. The review title sums my myriad thoughts up very well. That is all.Published on 13 Aug. 2013 by Ian Comstock Boostrom
