Default Cheat! card and Hirelings

The cheat card references other item cards, and not simply hireling cards. Does this mean that for such text, only hirelings which are items too are applicable to such a cheat card? However aren't all hirelings in fact NOT items, lacking a gold value or a stated no value?

Default Re: Cheat! card and Hirelings

The Munchkin 4 rules (and other sets that have the special "Hireling" rules) give the Cheat! card the added ability of allowing you to use it to have an extra Hireling. It doesn't matter if a Hireling is an Item or not for you to be able to use a Cheat! card on it.

Can your Cheat! Hireling carry 1 item?

A Hireling can do only what the Hireling rules and the specific Hireling card says it can do. The Cheat! card used to give you an extra Hireling doesn't change what the Hireling can do, since it's overriding the rule about having only one Hireling at a time.

Instead of letting you use an Item you couldn't normally use, the Cheat! lets you have a Hireling you couldn't normally have. You then get whatever abilities that Hireling has, no more and no less.
