Default Re: Munchkin in Spanish: how good is it?

That's what I meant with "encouraging": that it is in fact possible to translate Munchkin and keep it funny. Cool.

Do you mean that the rules are not 100% clear? No problem, the main objective is to make them read/speak Spanish as much as possible, so if there is a rules question, loudly arguing over it (and boy, does this group love loud arguments) is actually part of the class ;-)

The jokes are different, and maybe you didn't get it if you don't live here, but I find it very funny.
Good to know. I'm actually from Bilbao, so no problems with getting them, but do you think the jokes would be too local for non-Spaniards?

Games avaliable: Munchkin 1~7, Star Munchkin 1&2, Super Munchkin, Munchkin Cthuluh
Cool. I'd start with Munchkin and maybe Star or Super Munchkin. ¡Gracias Koto!

Great feedback so far, guys. Keep it coming!
