If you can't find your answer here, check the errata , to make sure we didn't make a mistake. Every Munchkin set puts its own spin on the game, but they do have many rules in common. This first section deals with some of those. All answers in this FAQ refer to editions of Munchkin published in or later.
If you have a game published before then, look at the Munchkin Change Log for a detailed list of changes, set by set. June update : We are no longer supporting the Epic Munchkin rules, so all answers here outside of the Epic Munchkin section itself assume that you are playing a regular game ending at Level See that section for more details.
July update : We have made two global rule updates to all Munchkin games, and these updates will affect some answers in this FAQ. Both of these rules implement changes globally that we have already made to individual cards in newer Munchkin games and expansions. Rule 1 came about because many players over the years have been frustrated by being forced to help someone else win the game. Rule 2 deals with an annoying timing edge case by removing the edge case. It does make it slightly easier to win with an instant-kill effect, but most of those require exactly the right card combo.
There are official errata for two cards as a result of this rule:. We added one important question about unequipped Steeds, Vehicles, or Ships short version: you can't and a few others that don't quite rise to that level of universality. Most of the cards in Munchkin have rule effects of one type or another. In general, rules on specific cards override the general game rules. However, there are certain rules that must be specifically contradicted by cards.
See the "Conflicts Between Cards and Rules" box on p. The general rule is that you may not reach Level 10 except by killing a monster. If you are at Level 9 and something else happens that would normally let you go up a level. You stay at Level 9.
If you have a card or an ability that lets you mess with another player and get a level in return, you cannot play that card or use that ability. If the card explicitly says that it can end the game, or that the level it grants can be the winning level, then obviously it can be.
The corollary is that if the card does not say it can be the winning level, then it cannot be. Note also that ANY level gained as a result of killing a monster counts as the winning level. If a card says a monster is automatically defeated, this counts as a kill unless the card says otherwise. If you have a character ability that lets you get an extra level after winning certain combats e. A Go Up a Level card played after combat, however, cannot be, because the card does not itself kill the monster.
You cannot use a card or ability to force someone to help you if the combat is for the win. If you have forced someone to help and then the combat becomes one for the win, your helper is kicked out of the fight without penalty and you must fight alone or ask someone to help — good luck with that.
On the other hand, if you force someone to help and they would win the game, they get to stay in. For the purposes of the game, "defeating" a monster involves beating it in combat or removing it from play in such a way that you do not have to Run Away. This means that if a Wizard casts a charm spell, or a munchkin uses a Pollymorph Potion , or something else happens that ends a fight without the munchkins Running Away, the monster is defeated.
This may or may not grant Treasures, depending on the method of defeat; assume it does not unless the card or method says otherwise.
For this, you get levels and Treasure. When you are in combat with more than one monster, you cannot resolve ANY aspect of the combat until ALL monsters are defeated or until the munchkins flee.
You cannot, for instance, use your Wizard to charm one monster and take its Treasures before fighting the rest. One thing to remember is that if a monster has a special ability, it applies to the entire combat. When you are combining some or all of the different Munchkin sets together, some general card types have different names in the various sets. The rules say one thing. This card says another. What do I do? In most cases, follow the card. But there are a few rules that can't be broken unless a card explicitly says so.
See Important Note 0. Can yadda-yadda be used to do yadda-yadda? It isn't in the rules or on the card, but it seems logical. If it's not in the rules, it doesn't matter how logical it is, unless you can talk the other players into it.
And if you can, go for it! Is yadda-yadda the same as yadda-yadda? Usually, no, but see Important Note 5. The rules say that the owner of the game has final say in disputes, and the guy who owns the game in our group screws up the rules and won't listen even when everyone else agrees he's wrong.
It feels like he's cheating! What should I do? The "owner of the game" rule is meant to give groups a way to end arguments about the rules when they've gone on too long. It is not a license for anyone who buys a Munchkin game to apply their own interpretation of the rules if everyone else disagrees.
Ultimately, if your friend won't accept when he's wrong or if he's deliberately cheating, which is worse , you may want to consider buying your own Munchkin game. Life's too short to play games with unpleasant people. But don't the rules say it's OK to cheat if you don't get caught? Not since , and even when they did, it was a joke. If you want a game where cheating is in the spirit and the letter of the rules, try Illuminati.
How long do I have to react to someone else's card before it takes effect? Card effects happen as the cards are played, in the order they are played. Unless you have a card or an ability that says it can cancel another card or effect for instance, a Wishing Ring can cancel a Curse before it takes effect , you have to resolve every card, in the order it was played, before doing anything else.
If two players try to do things simultaneously, how do we determine which one happens first? If they were truly simultaneous and you can't agree on anything else, each player who wanted to do something should roll the die; high roll decides what order the cards happen.
If that makes later cards moot, well, that's the way the game goes. But: abilities that require discards don't happen until the discards hit the table. This is a good reason not to announce your plays until you are ready to make them! Is there a limit to the number of Curses I can play on a turn? What about on a single player on a turn? You can play as many as you have in your hand. But so can everyone else. If a Curse could apply to more than one Item, who decides what it applies to?
The victim of the Curse decides, unless a card says otherwise. It depends on the exact wording of the Curse. If it is "Lose One Armor," you would lose any single Armor card you had in play. And if it is just "Lose Your Armor," discard everything you have in play that is Armor. As mentioned below, Cheated Armor is still Armor! I just kicked down a door and was hit by a Curse that will force me to get rid of an Item.
Can I sell the Item for a level instead? You have to resolve the Curse before doing anything else, unless you have a way to cancel the Curse completely e. What happens when you die? Do Curses that persist go away? Not unless the Curse itself says so. Sucks to be cursed, but, well, you knew that. Some of my cards have weird symbols on the bottom.
What do those mean? Those are set icons, designed to let you separate your sets and to tell where a card comes from if you want to look at this FAQ or the errata page for that game. Click here to see a page showing all the icons in use. If something tells me to draw a face-up card but the discard pile is empty, what should I do?
Never draw from the discards unless you are specifically told to do so. A face-up draw means take the top card from the appropriate deck and turn it over for everyone to see.
A face-down draw means take the top card from the deck and put it in your hand, or play the card if it is legal to do so at that time. This says to pick a random card from my opponent's hand, but I can tell his Doors from his Treasures. May I use that information? If it's important to your group that choices be truly random, then either close your eyes when you pick a card, roll a die, or have the other player mix up the cards below the table and you tell him which number card you want.
What do you mean by cards in play? Do cards in my hand count?
