Munchkin can be a nasty game with the backstabbing that can happen. Steve Jackson Games wants Munchkin to be more accessible and friendly, so they are releasing Munchkin Wonderland, a version that’s more family friendly.
A new Munchkin-inspired game due out this fall will let families with young kids explore Wonderland in a game that plays like a friendlier, simpler version of classic Munchkin.
In Munchkin Wonderland, players wander a whimsical landscape fighting enemies such as the the Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire Cat, or the Jabberwock. They’ll get help from classic characters such as the Dormouse, March Hare, and Alice herself using weapons like the Vorpal Blade and Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast.
Unlike traditional Munchkin games, when one player fights a monster, other players can help, but they can’t make the fight harder. The game ends when there’s no more treasure, and the winner is whoever’s loot is worth the most!
Munchkin Wonderland is based on Munchkin Treasure Hunt, the first Munchkin game geared toward kids, but Wonderland has 100% more Stolen Tarts, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and Croquet Mallets.
It sounds like a fun theme that anyone can get into. Look for it on store shelves.
