Munchkin Cthulhu by Steve Jackson Games

Munchkin Cthulhu is a maddening Lovecraftian flavor of Steve Jackson Games smash hit Munchkin.

Munchkin Cthulhu is a maddening flavor of Steve Jackson Games smash hit Munchkin.  While it may not redefine Munchkin in it’s entirety it does provide a nice refreshing feeling for players who may have burnt themselves out on the original.  One thing that has always been a problem for me with Munchkin is that generally my amount of fun is dependent on the group size.  While it plays 3-6 players it really is best with that middle area of 4-5.

This version of Munchkin ditches the race mechanic and simplifies classes to be much more Lovecraftian.  There is the Professor, Investigator, Monster Whacker, and the Cultist to contend with; while cards like Super Munchkin still exist once you become a Cultist it is very very difficult to not be one.

The Verdict

7Good

The Good: Theme | Same Munchkin Feeling

The Bad: Amount of fun depends on size of group
