Product Description

The Munchkins are back – and they're in space! Now they're Mutants, Cyborgs, and Cat People . . . grabbing Lasers, Vibroswords, and Nova Grenades . . . fighting Fanged Fuzzballs, Bionic Bimbos, and the Brain In A Jar. This is a complete game using the best-selling Munchkin rules (with a few twists like Sidekicks). Yes, it CAN be combined with Munchkin and all the sequels! And, of course, it features the twisted humor of Steve Jackson and the wacky cartoons of John Kovalic.

Like the others of the Munchkin Series, Star Munchkin features wacky and lovable art while lampooning roleplaying games and gamers. Obviously the most distinctive feature of the game is its science fiction-oriented comedy. The art and flavor text of the cards take jabs not only at Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Gallactica, Red Dwarf and others, but also at general science fiction themes.

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.

We bought this and the Good, the Bad and the Munchkin for the sole purpose of being able to play what we call "Firefly Munchkin" since you have the space aspect along with the western :) Have a lot of fun with it, every card is entertaining to read and has such fun art.

Star Munchkin is a fun card game that manages to pit players against each other or force them to help one another depending on who's the perceived frontrunner.
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.

Star Munchkin is the outer space version of Steve Jackson Games' successful Munchkin cardgame. We played this one with a friend of mine, and my 12 year old son thought it was the coolest game ever, so I bought him his own copy for his birthday. We've had loads of fun playing it for the past couple of months, and we've really gotten into it. (My son particularly likes being a feline bounty hunter with a "Bananafanafofaser.") Gameplay is pretty simple; a game session can last from a few minutes to almost an hour, depending on how much you want to "stab your buddy." The only downside is that with only one set, it can become repetitive. But we're only playing it with 2 players (the box recommneds 3), so that may be part of it. I'm guessing that the more card sets you add, the less repetative (and more chaotic) it will be. We're already talking about the other sets we want to add. All in all, Star Munchkin is a good, fast game for anyone about 10 or older.

Long time gamers will already know Steve Jackson Games from their long history of RPG wins like TOON and GURPS. Since the wildly successful introduction of SJG's D&D and Magic: The Gathering parody/game system MUNCHKIN there have been many spin-offs, expansions and dips into other non-fantasy genres like The Old West, SuperHero, Vampire, Spy, Zombies, Post-Apocalyptic, Cthulhu, Pirates and now SPACE!
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 ...
