Default Re: Level Counter App Makes My Friends Hate Me

I find that any advantage that apps, shirts, or promo items bestow on players are typically balanced by everyone else hating that player for the rest of the game.

In my group it is understood that you are allowed to play anything that gives you a unique advantage, but then you better expect to see a LOT of Wandering Monsters, Monster Enhancers, and Curses coming your way.

I think this just makes the game even better. It gives rise to situations where you really have to weigh the cost-benefit ratio of promo items. For instance, hmmmm, I'll get three more treasures... but is it really worth ******* everyone else off when I am already out ahead?

Conversely, players that are way behind in terms of levels or treasures often play promo items in my group without anyone noticing. "Oh, he's only level three anyway, who cares!"

Also, there is just absolutely nothing better than winning thanks to a promo item. There is no way for other players to retaliate (until next game, and my group has several good natured meta-game grudges) and you get to be as ridiculous and pompous as you want when you make your move: "Well, I guess there is no way for me to win this combat... OH WAIT! I still have the BOON FROM PHONE!" <cue level ten fanfare music!>

BTW, we just rolled out another few dozen Boons. Check for an app upgrade.

Quite so! Glad to have the insight, ladies and germs. Fun>winning. Unless you're stupidly competitive...which makes my decision still difficult but not impossible. xD

I haven't even used a boon in the game yet. >.< this is why it's awesome to jump into a game in year ten (which I've done with Final Fantasy VII, World of Warcraft and now Munchkin), you don't have to wait for new features because there's no way in Hell you can afford it all anyways. xD

New boons to make your friends hate you! Is there any way we can get an Epic Ability list in that app? I'd pay another dollar. I'll send you whatever is in my pocket.

Seconding this! Epic is a free download as it is, adding it in the the Munchkin App would be BEYOND useful!

That's very odd.

The next question would be: iPhone only, or Android, too?
