Star Munchkin is a follow-up edition to the immensely popular Munchkin card/board game.
Created to be a parody of role-playing (RPG) card games and taking its name from the term experienced players of RPGs foist upon greedy, impatient noobs, Munchkin stripped the RPG genre back to the most basic (and fun!) elements of killing monsters, amassing treasure, and stabbing your friends squarely between the shoulder blades.
Gussied up with a quirky, irreverent humour and a wonderfully unique space-themed cartoon design, Star Munchkin makes it easy to forget the absence of all the serious stuff from standard RPGs like storylines and character arcs.
The Deluxe set includes a board which takes the guesswork out of keeping track of player levels, and the expansion packs available from Mighty Ape will keep the game from becoming stale.
A great game for both RPG lovers and those who haven't the time or patience for a full RPG.
I own the original Munchkin, this game, and am going to grab the expansions for both as well as other editions available from Mighty Ape, as soon as the Lotto Gods smile on me.
