If you listen to Munchkin Land, you know we love playing Smash Up. Only problem is, we are so busy playing other games, we don’t get enough time to play the game as often as we want. That’s about to change this fall when AEG’s Smash Up comes to Steam, iOS, Macs, and Android devices.
In gaming, a munchkin is a player who plays what is intended to be a non-competitive game in an aggressively competitive manner. A munchkin seeks within the context of the game to amass the greatest power, score the most “kills”, and grab the most loot, no matter how detrimental their actions are to role-playing, the storyline, fairness, or the other players’ enjoyment. This week, the group discuss the best and worst parts of Smash Up, upcoming Smash Up expansions, and possible upcoming games.
Munchkin is 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. This week, it’s a Munchkin Minute: A quick update on why there was as gap in programming, updates on upcoming releases, why you should go to GenCon, and an update on the Critical Hit Munchkin expansion!
