Excellent addition to the base set
on 27 October 2012
A bunch of great cards for your Munchkin game. Remember that you'll need the standard base game and that this isn't a separate game. Personally I feel that you need at least one expansion (like Unnatural Axe) to get the most out of Munchkin. That's just what my friends and I have for our weekly games (Munchkin + Unnatural Axe). There's enough variation to keep everything feeling fresh, and the card pile doesn't look too high. I'd even consider throwing one more expansion in.
The cards themselves are brilliant, and funny too, with a new race: the Orc. This race allows you to dodge the effect of a player inflicted curse at the cost of one level (and there's also another minor effect of the Orc that I'll leave out). That may not sound too great, but believe me, some curses - especially those in Unnatural Axe - are worth losing a level to avoid. The back of the cards are just ever so slightly different, like a very minor shading difference, so you can quite easily separate the cards back out from your standard Munchkin deck.
Definitely recommend buying.
