Default (Updated 8/1/13) Forum rules: Trust me, you'll want to read this first.

There are few things I would suggest you try, before you ask a question:
  • Search through the PDF of the rules. It's easier than trying to scan through 20 pages without a search engine.
  • Verify that your question hasn't already been handled in the FAQ. I know the FAQ is not well populated at the moment. I'm sure it will be more helpful as the years go by.
  • Search the forum. It can help a lot. There's a button, on the right side above the topic threads that says, "Search this Forum."

Searching this forum:

Munchkin Quest uses a lot of small or common words. There are two important ideas to remember:
1) Using the asterisk (*) in the forum search can help you find short words, by making Elf into Elf* (for example).
2) Google has a feature that will allow you to us it to find stuff in the forums. Just add "" in your Google search. Now, that will be ALL of SJ Games' forums, not just the Munchkin Quest forum, so you might still have a lot of items to scour through, but with the right application of Search Fu, you should be able to find what you're looking for.

Custom card ideas:

We know you really want to share your custom card ideas, we really do, but please don't share them on this forum. Instead, submit them here. Using that form puts your card ideas into our database, which makes it easier to find them later on when we're scratching our heads for inspiration.

Dealer Shoes/Discard bins/Card sleeves:
Occasionally, someone asks, "Hey, why doesn't SJ Games make a really cool, tricked-out dealer's shoe for Munchkin Quest?" or a similar question about custom Munchkin Quest card sleeves. The short answer is: We'd really like to, but we can't make it cost-effective. We'll keep working at it. (Note that Munchkin Quest uses different-sized cards from Munchkin and its spawn.)

I want to play Munchkin Quest online!
So do we all. Munchkin Quest is such an exception-driven game, however, that coding a computer or console version is something of a nightmare. For now, SJ Games doesn't have any definite plans for a "Munchkin Quest Online." It's unfortunate, but we're not a computer game company and our talents don't lie in that direction. If this changes, we'll trumpet the news from the heavens!

Hey, I said Warrior worked like THIS and you contradicted me! I've been playing Munchkin since 2001!
Remember that Munchkin Quest is not Munchkin, and you can't rely on Munchkin rules to work the same way in Munchkin Quest. There are some intentional differences, and others that just grew that way.

Who are you guys, anyway?
Andrew Hackard is the Munchkin Czar (or, if you're being boring, Brand Manager). It's his job to keep all the Munchkin sets in print and make sure that everyone hits their deadlines. Andrew drinks way too much coffee and has been known to mutter to himself in Latin.

Leonard Balsera (lenny) is the Munchkin Hireling. He works with Andrew to make sure that everything that needs doing gets done. This involves a lot of saying, "Andrew, don't forget about . . ." Be nice to Lenny; he has to work closely with Andrew.

Angie Kreuser (angiek) used to be the Munchkin Hireling, but has moved over to Warehouse 23 and e23 customer service. An old saying about frying pans and fires comes to mind . . . and we wish her well in her new role.

Erik Zane (MunchkinMan) is the Munchkin NetRep. It's his job to know everything about the rules for Munchkin Quest, including what we said the last time someone asked your question.

Steve Jackson wrote Munchkin Quest. Thanks, Steve!

Andrew, Lenny, and Erik are the moderation staff for this forum. Generally, we try to keep things friendly and cheerful. You can help by treating other posters as you'd like to be treated -- or, even better, as you'd like your favorite relative to be treated. When one of the moderators answers a rule question, you can assume that answer is official unless they say it's just an opinion.

One last request: Please try not to post a bunch of unrelated questions in a single post. We really do go back and look at previous rulings, and it helps us out when the discussions stay focused. If a conversation starts getting too fractured, we may split it into separate threads.

Okay, let's have fun! Now! Have fun now, people!
