Kill the monster, grab the treasure, stab your buddy. That's what it's all about. Now, Munchkin comes to the board game.
Cooperate with the whole group, adventure with a partner or strike out on your own. You don't know what's behind a door until you open it . . . then another tile is added to the dungeon. Battle monsters for power and treasure, or send them after your friends. Reach Level 10 and get out alive if you can!
Designed by Steve Jackson and illustrated by John Kovalic, this board game doesn't take itself seriously, except for the loot - munchkins are always serious about that!

I've been playing Munchkin the card game for going on 3 years and I really loved it. However some people that played the card game had a little trouble visualizing their scenarios and distress in large fights.
Munchkin Quest really is a great game to play. It takes a little while to get to grips with it to begin (as did Munchkin the card game, right?) but once we had 1 or 2 games we were in full swing.
It is definately recommended to get the expansion pack also as it does add quite a nice balancing effect to the game. Similar to Munchkin the card game it is possible for 1 person to get all the loot really fast and win before anyone has a chance, and that is sometimes possible in Munchkin Quest if you do not have the expansion. Which is well worth the money I should add.
Bottom line; if you liked the card game you will love this board game. You get to have all the fun you have in the card game, plus pieces to move and to create the dungeon how you see fit.
