You might not be able to get any more Szechwan Sauce, but you can still check out the Rick and Morty version of Munchkin this weekend.
Munchkin is a popular hand management card game with ‘take that’ mechanics reimplemented in more themes than I care to count. I expect if you’re reading this, you know what Munchkin is and how it works. Regardless, in Munchkin players take turns flipping the top card from a deck of Door cards, which usually reveal monsters or traps. The player must use the Treasure cards they have acquired, as well as the cards in their hand to bring their combat value over that of the monster to defeat it and gain a level and some treasure. Other players can attempt to swing the combat in favor of the monster, which will force the combatting player to suffer the monster’s Bad Stuff. The first player to reach level 10 wins!
In Munchkin: Rick and Morty, players start with a role card. Players can play as Rick, Morty, Beth, Jerry, Summer, or Mr. Poopybutthole. Each character has a unique ability which they can use whenever applicable. Players can find various Class cards as well to grant additional abilities: Parents, High Schoolers, Super Geniuses, or Songwriters. This version of Munchkin also brings Parasite monsters. Each time a Parasite monster is drawn, a die is rolled and on a 3 or less and add it to the combat. That parasite also triggers another die roll, potentially creating a waterfall of parasites. Players can also add parasites from their hand directly into combat without needing to roll. Each parasite is fairly weak on its own, but grouped together they can create a formidable force.
