The Munchkins are back! Now the game is chop-socky Hong Kong action. The characters are Samurai, Ninja, Yakuza, and Monks. The foes are mooks, demons, and assorted bad guys from all the worst martial arts films you've ever seen. Collect treasures and learn new styles to build up your character's powers. Kill the monsters, take their stuff, and be the first one to 10th level!
Created by Steve Jackson. Munchkin Fu is completely compatible with the original Munchkin (and with Star Munchkin, if you're really nuts).

You battle your munchkin warriors (yakuza, samurai, monk or ninja) against hordes of demons, Gaki and other monsters and collect heaps of treasure and weapons along the way.
The game is fast-paced, VERY varied (and funny too), and easy to set up and play. It's just two card decks and one dice. Simple!
I'm taking off one star just because it's got a fairly steep learning curve. There are a lot of rules, and every card in the deck has it's own set of rules to follow. It can be very overwhelming for a new player... but it's interesting enough to stick with it, and after your first game, it's easy to plan strategies and keep up with the rules and gameplay.
Another item to note is that most Munchkin decks can be combined. ie. you can use your Munchkin Fu decks with your regular Munchkin decks, or other Munchkin games. Rules for combining decks are included.
The imbalance in this can be summed up with the following examples.
Yakuza class cards give them the ability to use guns, one martial arts style lets you use guns, yet there is only 1 gun in the whole game (including the expansion pack of Monkey Business).
Samurai get bonuses with swords... yet there is only 1 sword in this game.
There are curses but no wishing rings, and there are too many level up bonus cards.
All the fun of Munchkin now making fun of the cheezy kung fu movies and shows of the past.
Can be combined with the other versions.
Tons of fun , buy it.
Each card contains its own set of rules that affect game play, so each card contains (often substantial) text.
The game is fairly flexible in terms of the number of players it can accommodate, but somewhere between 3-5 is probably best. If you stick to those numbers, a game will usually take around 30-45 minutes.
This game can be played as a standalone (kung fu themed) set and is also compatible with any of the (many) Munchkin expansions, so a player may consistently add new cards to the deck in order to breathe new life into the game.
Overall, the play is very fun, portable, fast-paced, and often amusing. The jabs at well-known kung fu movie tropes are all very entertaining, and the addition of martial arts cards adds a fun new element to game play.
APPROPRIATE AUDIENCE: Hardcore gamers will enjoy this as a "warm-up" between their more complicated gaming sessions. It's a very useful tool for introducing newcomers to these kinds of games (although Fluxx or Current Number of the Beast are maybe even better for this purpose).
Finally, this particular set is (obviously) kung fu themed -- in other words, if the player doesn't enjoy (or won't understand) Bruce Lee or ninja jokes, you are better off getting a different set of Munchkin cards (Zombie Munchkin for horror fans, Conan Munchkin for fantasy fans, etc).
OVERALL SCORE: B (at this point, the game is too venerable to consider anything less, and the kung fu theme is very well done).
Some of its high points are that the monsters can very easily go from weak to strong. (The Gaki monsters can be strengthened by ANY card in any players' hand to give it +2) Hong Kong monsters can be played on each other like undead monsters. There definitely are more "level up" cards than needed, but that adds to the challenge. The gold cost on the items is also higher, therefore buying levels is easier too. (But most of the items are so cool that you don't want to give them up.)
It's definitely a great standalone, but it's even better if you mix it with another good version of Munchkin (Star/Apocalypse/Super). If you don't mind a little harmless fun, and some corny puns, then this is for you!

We love munchkin games, but this is surprisingly one of our least favorite. It just seems a little bland and over powered.Published 1 month ago by Crystal
Great one. Fun homage to classic Kung Fu movies and the game play makes players stronger more quickly than in the other versions, resulting in shorter games.Published 6 months ago by Fenton
I love this game and every other expansion thats out there. Mixing this with other decks leads to so many intense games between my buddies and I. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Brandon Navarra
I haven't played this with a lot of players yet...just two players, so it doesn't work well. Too overpowered. With more people it's probably a fun game. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Brian Carman

This game's a lot of fun, we enjoy playing it quite a bit. We're in our mid to late 20's, but I've seen kids in their teens love it too. Read morePublished 12 months ago by tallgaloot
