Go down in the dungeon. Kill everything you meet. Backstab your friends and steal their stuff. Grab the treasure and run.
Admit it. You love it.
Munchkin is the mega-hit card game about dungeon adventure . . . with none of that stupid roleplaying stuff. You and your friends compete to kill monsters and grab magic items. And what magic items! Don the Horny Helmet and the Boots of Butt-Kicking. Wield the Staff of Napalm . . . or maybe the Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment. Start by slaughtering the Potted Plant and the Drooling Slime, and work your way up to the Plutonium Dragon . . .
And it's illustrated by John Kovalic!
Fast-playing and silly, Munchkin can reduce any roleplaying group to hysteria. And while they're laughing, you can steal their stuff.
Ages 10 and up. Plays in one to two hours. Three to six players.

Errata to Be Corrected in the Next Printing
None at this time!
Corrected in the 27th Printing
On p. 4, under "Monster Enhancers," the following text was omitted:
Exception: Anything that enhances a monster also enhances its Mate . . . if Ancient, Enraged, and Mate are played on a single monster, in any order, you are facing an Ancient Enraged monster and its Ancient Enraged Mate. Good luck . . .
Corrected in the 24th Printing
In the 19th through 23rd Printings, Ghoulfiends should say "No items or other bonuses help against them – fight with your Level only."
The Wand of Dowsing should say "Usable once only."
Add a subhead under "Monsters," on p. 5:
Several monsters in this set are tagged Undead. You may play any Undead monster from your hand into combat to help any other Undead, without using a Wandering Monster card. If you have a card that can be used to make a monster Undead, you may play it with a non-Undead monster to use this rule.
Corrected in the 19th Printing
Really Impressive Title is not an item, so it should not say "No Value"
Corrected in the 13th Printing
On the text for the Malign Mirror, change "weapon" to "items except Armor."
Corrected in the 2nd Printing
The Bad Stuff on the Floating Nose card should end with "Lose 3 Levels."
Mr. Bones should be Undead.
The Swiss Army Polearm should say "2 Hands".
For 3,872 Orcs, the Bad Stuff should read:
Roll a die. On a 1 or 2, they stomp you to death. Otherwise, lose as many Levels as the die shows.
