Munchkin 4 – The Need for Steed is an expansion for the original Munchkin – 112 more cards for killing monsters, stealing treasure, and backstabbing your fellow players. This set introduces Steeds, the trusty mounts of legend. But this is Munchkin, so these Steeds include not just the Dragon and the Tiger, but the Giant Mutant Gerbil (drawn by guest artist Shaenon K. Garrity of Skin Horse), the Chicken, and Big Joe, who might be a Steed or might be a Hireling. It's hard to tell.

Hireling? Yes indeed, The Need for Steed has lots and lots of Hirelings! Add these valuable characters to your retinue, use their special abilities, and sacrifice them to save your own skin!

Feel the need . . . The Need for Steed!

    Errata to Be Corrected in the Next Printing

    There are no reported errata for this printing


    Corrected Errata

    Corrected in the 8th Printing

    . . . A-Matic, . . . Of Destiny, and Shiny are now labeled Item Enhancers. The Item Enhancers rules have been added to the rulesheet.

    Corrected (again) in the 6th Printing

    Rules:

    The first bullet point under Hirelings should read "If your Hireling sacrifices himself to save you, any Items he is carrying are lost."

    Corrected in the 8th Printing

    Fire-Breathing Bridle, Press-On Wings, and Talking Potion are now labeled Steed Enhancers.

    Corrected in the 3rd Printing

    Rules:

    The first bullet point under Hirelings should read "If your Hireling sacrifices himself to save you, any Items he is carrying are lost."

    Insert this paragraph after the one that begins "A Hireling is not an item . . ."

    A Hireling can sacrifice himself for you. If you lose a fight, then instead of rolling to run away, you may discard one Hireling and anything he is carrying. You automatically escape from all monsters in the fight, even if a monster card says escape is impossible. If someone was helping you in the fight, YOU decide whether that person automatically escapes as well, or must roll to escape.
