Excerpts from the Munchkin rulesheet

  • “Everyone starts as a Level 1 human with no class.”

  • “Decide who goes first by rolling the dice and arguing about the results and the meaning of this sentence and whether the fact that a word seems to be missing any effect.”

  • “This rulesheet gives the general rules. Cards may add special rules, so in most cases when the rulesheet disagrees with a card, follow the card. However, ignore any card effect that might seem to contradict one of the rules listed below unless the card specifically says it supersedes that rule!”

  • “When you kill a monster, you must wait a reasonable time, defined as 2.6 seconds, for anyone else to speak up. After that, you have really killed the monster, and you really get the level(s) and treasure, though they can still whine and argue.”

  • “There will be times when it will help you to play a Curse or Monster on yourself, or to ‘help’ another player in a way that costs him treasure. This is very munchkinly. Do it.”

  • “If drawn face-down or acquired some other way, Curse cards may be played on any player at any time. ANY time, do you hear me? Reducing someone’s abilities just as he thinks he has killed a monster is a lot of fun.”
