The Munchkin Book
The Official Companion : Read The Essays, (ab)use The Rules, Win The GameeBook - 2016
With 18 exclusive Munchkin® game rules! By gently - and sometimes not so gently - mocking the fantasy dungeon crawl and the sacred cows of pop culture, the Munchkin card game has stabbed and sneaked and snickered a path to the pinnacle of success. Along the way, it has sold millions of copies, been translated around the world, and spawned more than two dozen sequels and supplements. More fun than a Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment and more useful than a Chicken on Your Head, The Munchkin Book is a lighthearted and suitably snarky celebration of all things near and dear to the munchkin heart, featuring exclusive content from:Munchkin's designer and Steve Jackson Games president Steve JacksonMunchkin's signature artist John Kovalic (creator of web comic Dork Tower)Steve Jackson Games' "Munchkin Czar" Andrew HackardCEO of Steve Jackson Games Phil ReedThe Munchkin Book also includes a foreword by New York Times bestselling author and Forgotten Realms creator Ed Greenwood, an introduction by editor James Lowder, and contributions from notable mavens of geek culture, including:Andrew Zimmerman Jones - David M.
