Munchkin

#1 Postby horrorman009 » Tue Oct 14, 2008 9:40 am

Hey guys. I don't know how many of you out there have played the card game Munchkin but think it would be hella cool and hilarious if they took Deadlands and converted into Munchkin. The monsters would be just the villians and of course the horror monsters. It could very easily be done. It might not have the same appeal but it would be something different.

Ya I've played it and it's fun. My co-worker bought a copy of the World of Darkness version for him and his daughter to play but when they realized it took three players and she wouldn't read the rules he handed it to me and said congrats... It's a funny take on a "serious" game.

Could always take the "Western"edition and the "horror" edition of munchkin and mix them together. even have Kung fu for some enlightened action and maybe some Cthulu munchkin for rattlers.

I believe that the Steve Jackson Games web site has a suggestion form for its Munchkin games. Perhaps we could suggest a Deadlands expansion for The Good, the Bad, and the Munchkin. Plus suggest some villains like Dr. Heckstromme, Reverend Grinne, Baron Lacroissant, and the Warlord Tang.

I think I'll look into that. Good Idea.

Weren't we making fun of this very same thing (Deadlands-Munchkin) just a few weeks/months ago? I think I remember Noshrok (and others, who I don't remember :oops: ) posting some funny ideas! :)

Yes indeedy. In fact, I was the one who started that particular thread (over in Break Room). I fear it may have already been culled though.

yes it's steve jackson games.. way back when he/they released a dime novel in both dl:c and gurps.
they also have gurps western and i believe another western.
i don't think sjg will be releasing anything else dl related.. it's kinda the competition.

but that's just my unknowing opinion.

Classic DL

- Munchkinthulhu and the Good the Bad and the Munchkin

Lost Colony

- Same as above but add in the Star Munchkin set

HOE

- Same as above but add in Munchkin Fu

They work real well as an interlude to any game you are playing. Often got us in the right frame of mind.
