The Game we have all been playing lately as a family is Munchkin. Munchkin is a card game designed by Steve Jackson that "simulates" (well, sorta') a fantasy-themed RPG (oh, ok, D&D) in a simple, card-based game that's chock full o' silliness. Everyone begins the game as a 1st level Human with NO Class (heh-heh) and via cards, they acquire Classes, Items, Armor, Potions and more that they use to combat hideous monsters The object of the game is to reach Level 10 and levels are acquired via the slaying of monsters and the selling of acquired treasure (1,000 Gold Pieces equals 1 Level). Very silly and a lot of fun!
Munchkin Cthulhu is a the version of the game we have been playing in the Munchkin line, this version lampoons H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos and the horror gaming that surrounds it. The boy’s really love it. Some times they just can’t stop laughing.
