Millennium, according to the Munchkin Resources page. :)

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. ˇGracias Koto!

Great feedback so far, guys. Keep it coming!

I mean... Those questions which appears when you play more and more and you try to be a Munchkin, for own interpretation of each card tipical in any Munchkin game... The traduction is good, anyway.

Not all the jokes, but maybe some of them...

A Monster from Munchkin Classic, I don't remember who exactly, got in his text the lyrics of "Bailaré sobre tu tumba"

In Munchkin Cthulhu, all the Song of Madness cards are based in Spanish Music. The best is the Cthulhu version "Chiqui Chiqui" of Chiquilicuatre (Do you remember Eurovision? xD).

De nada :P

See ya

Oh, no problem then. As long as it keeps them talking...

That is awesome.

-sigh- even Munchkin got affected by that? Oh, well. At least they are going to get the joke; the song was quite well-known here --the way a plague of locusts is well-known: you cannot avoid it no matter how you try-- at the time...

Anyway, this looks good. I'll talk with the managers before the start of the Autumn classes and we'll see what happens. Thanks to all who posted!
