Default Character Creation

At the beginning of the game does each player create their initial character only at the beginning of their own turn or is there an opportunity before the first player takes his first turn for everyone to play all of the race, class, and item cards they want?

We've been letting all of the players dump their hands into play before the first door gets kicked down but I just saw a clip of TableTop where they followed turn order to create their characters.

Yes, there is a period before the first player's turn where all players can play Race, Class, persistent Items and any other cards that form your character.

They ignored the Character Creation phase in the Tabletop episode.

Note that you aren't REQUIRED to create your character before the game starts. They might have thought it made for better TV for each player to set things up in turn.

A good place to use the verb 'may' rather than 'can'.

Thanks for clearing this up, I was beginning to doubt my understanding of the rules.

Thanks for asking (& answering this question). I was wondering this as well. I don't feel the Munchkin Apocalypse rules didn't state that very clearly.
