But if you buy Munchkin, you ought to seriously consider buying Munchkin 4: The Need for Steed. Why, you ask? Because unlike the first two expansions (2 & 3), Munchkin 4 introduces two new aspects to the game: Hirelings and Steeds. Hirelings are similar to NPCs in traditional role-playing games. Your buddies who fight alongside you that are not controlled by another player. Steeds are, well, animals you ride. (But you knew that already, what, I'm a dictionary?) Both basically give you more bonuses to your character, to increase your combat strength and your overall satisfaction with the game, life, the universe, and everything. (Wait, slipping into a Doug Adams review now. Sorry.)
Munchkin 4 also has a lot of new cards. More is better. Munchkin is awesome. That is all.
The Need for Steed is a 112 card expansion for the Fantasy Munchkin theme. It contains 78 door cards and 34 treasure cards. It does not introduce any new classes or races, but it does introduce steeds (which are big items that carry themselves and have some sort off special ability). This is an interesting addition to the game. You don't need a ton of expansions to get the most out of the base game, but the base game and least two are definitely worthwhile investment.
As noted in my other reviews, I own all of the Fantasy Munchkin expansions, and if I were to recommend an order to get the most new variety for your dollar, this one would be near the bottom of the list (still worthwhile, but there are several that I'd get before this one). Instead, I would suggest Munchkin Clerical Errors as it adds a race and a class, followed by Munchkin 8 Half Horse, Will Travel Card Game as it adds two races and three race/class enhancers, followed by whichever ones that are most interesting to you after that.

This pack is in brown and white instead of color. I was really disappointed that this fact wasn't stated anywhere on the order before I received it.Published 9 months ago by Austin
I had no idea i had such a need for steeds. And now that i have such steeds, i have even more need! Oh me, oh my.Published on March 25, 2013 by J. Lozano
The Munchkin franchise is wonderful, and this is a great add-on to the game. Adding steeds, kind of like henchman, they add zero to five bonus to the game. Read morePublished on July 13, 2010 by MBHimple
My husband and I LOVE this expansion--and not just because we want the thickest Munchkin deck in town. The cards add a new layer of play; and who doesn't like that?Published on April 22, 2009 by Nancy Margaret McAndrew
