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.
You and up to 6 friends (10 year olds to Senior Citizens) can still Kill the monsters, steal the treasure and stab your buddy only in... Zero gravity rather than a dungeon. Players still work their way up from level one to see who can reach level ten first. Players progress acquiring bonuses via cellophane space suits, faithful robot sidekicks, photon cutlasses and lazer weapons (like the Bananafsnafofaser), while fighting Worminators, slaughterbots, space amazons to the Great Cthulhu himself. Players may use traps to hinder others, hallucinogenic nanobot devices and even plot devices to help other players for a selfish cut of the treasure (space treasure, that is). Available to offer further special abilities are classes each Star Munchkin can become like: Gadgeteers, Bounty Hunters, Psychic and Traders. Combine these with space races like: Feline, Mutants, Cyborg and you've got yourself a game. Combine this set with any other genre of Munchkin and you have another game even. Like Star Munchkin and Munchkin Booty for a game of Space Pirates!
New Gamer Note: You should know this set is as easy to manage quick start up whether you've played before or not, but it you haven't played any version of Munchkin before a word of warning ...Read more ›
