Game play is slightly friendlier than the original Munchkin. The traps and class abilities of the original allow for much more fierce competition, a dynamic that is somewhat muted in Star Munchkin. Despite my love of sci-fi, the mechanic of the game that has made this my favorite is the "-aser weapons." We're familiar with lasers, and phasers, but Star Munchkin has allowed us guns that are razors, spraysers, masers, dasers, and so on. Any weapon ending in "-aser" can be combined with any other weapon ending in "-aser" allowing the bonuses to stack. This is worth several laughs around the table when you are wielding a "maser-daser-shmaser-bobaser-banannafanafofaser-laser."
Star Munchkin is great game play for anyone who enjoys either science fiction or roleplaying. Everyone else may enjoy the fun of the game, but will likely miss the genre specific jokes.
You will like this game if you are a fan of the TV show Survivor. If you are a fan of both Survivor and the Sci-fi channel you will love this game. If you are both of the above and you also consider yourself a somewhat perverse person who enjoys being backstabbed just as much as he enjoys backstabbing...you should see a psychiatrist. Seriously.
This game differs from the original Munchkin in two important ways. One positive, one negative.
Positively, you can acquire henchmen in this game. the ubiquitous "red shirts" from Star Trek are here to be disposed of as your fortunes (or whim!) dictates.
The down side is that there are no expansion sets for this game yet. Since you can play the original Munchkin with up to three available expansions it is a more interesting and less likely to be repetitive game.
I would advise you to buy the original Munchkin if you are only buying one.
If you already have the original Munchkin plus expansions, or Sci-Fi is more your preference over a fantasy setting, then I would reccomend Star Munchkin. Either way it will be the most fun you have had playing cards in a while.
I think it has a lot of replay value and can be pretty fun. Just like in a MMO, you collect items and fight battles. Not a very unusual game which I would normally rate at three stars, but the high replay value makes me give it an extra star. Note these cards are basically normal playing cards, so they will get worn and damaged like normal playing cards.

I wish it would flow better with more of the base games. As long as you play it with a base game that has dungeons or rooms, it works fine.Published 3 months ago by Sheena Adamson
Back of cards are SUBSTANTIALOUSLY different than other Decls or packs.Published 4 months ago by E. Grant
This Game is great. I has a bunch of horrible puns from sci-fi movies. Plus when ever you say a combination of the cards out loud it just sounds ridiculous.Published 4 months ago by sailor21
