Hello, fellow game players! It is rare that I address you all, but I wanted to reach even the most reserved of our membership to explore interest in a Munchkin-themed Game Meetup in the near future.
This meetup would be in partnership with the Roleplayers of Jacksonville (ROJ) Meetup, with which some of you may already be familiar. One of our newer members, Joseph Tremain, is also in ROJ and has generously offered to host this meetup to accommodate 24-30 guests.
Unfamiliar with Munchkin? Wikipedia calls it "a dedicated deck card game by Steve Jackson Games, written by Steve Jackson and illustrated by John Kovalic, that has a humorous take on role-playing games, based on the concept of munchkins (immature role-players, playing "to win"). Munchkin won the 2001 Origins Award for Best Traditional Card Game,[1] and is itself a spin-off from The Munchkin's Guide to Powergaming, a gaming humor book that also won an Origins Award in 2000."
It adds that a general Munchkin card game (4-player, I am inferring) might take an hour or so to play. I would say that by contrast, most role-playing games (such as Dungeons & Dragons) are very lengthy and far more technical. In short, I'd describe Munchkin as a fun, entertaining, action-card game for 4-6 players per table.
I have played Munchkin many times and it is easy to play, cheeky-geeky in humor and relatively light on strategy. Our gracious host has many varieties of the basic game to share with us.
Please let me know if you'd like to give this meetup a try!
Thanks and have a great weekend! I hope I'll see many of you at Denise's House on Sunday!
