Munchkin Land

During the gaming session on Tuesday I had the pleasure of playing a card game called Munchkin.  this game is basically a RPG with a very comedic tone.  The games tag line goes like this: “Go down in the dungeon. Kill everything you meet. Backstab your friends and steal their stuff. Grab the treasure and run.”  To me this sounded like a really fun game.  At first the game was quite frustrating because trying to decipher the tricky rule book was no small task.  It seemed like the way in which the rules were written made it so you had to argue with your competitors over the true meaning of them.

Unfortunately I was stupid enough to pick up the Duck...

The humor of this game is really great.  Many of the cards feature monsters and spell that are quite hilarious.  Though the game was a bit frustrating at first it eventually became quite fun when you realized how easy it is to back stab one of your competitors and make it almost impossible to kill a low level monster.  Overall this game is frustrating to learn however it quickly becomes quite enjoyable.  I would like to get a chance to play this again sometime.
