Default Door card percentage

In the last three weeks I have purchased the Munchkin game box, The Munchkin Deluxe Edition, Munchkin 2, Munchkin 3, Munchkin 4, Munchkin 5, Munchkin 6, Munchkin 6.5, Munchkin 7, Munchkin 8, Munchkin 9, Munchkin Cthulhu, Munchkin Board of Health, Munchkin Shakespeare, Munchkin Shakespeare Limited Engagement, Munchkin Head Kickers, Munchkin Dragons and Munchkin Dragon’s Trike. As such I have something of an embarrassment of riches in terms of cards especially as I normally only play with a total of three or four people. Is there a formula that I can get for the composition of a door deck without having to use all twenty five thousand cards I seem to have?

X monsters, y curses, z classes etc? I’m not asking for actual numbers just percentages of what makes up a good balanced, or appropriately unbalanced Door deck.

Thanks

If you dig through the House Rules thread, Iím pretty sure people have discussed how to ďtuneĒ larger decks. There arenít any published guidelines for it.

There is an official standardize formula per se that is not house rules, yet Munchkin Rick and Morty so far is the best balanced Munchkin game to date without over-powering the character too much that players cannot match or stop the strongest Combat Strength player from winning a Combat. The balance comes from when the sets do not have too many specific conditionals combinations.

Reducing the number of expansions or boosters in a single game helps, due to there are a lot of cards from each set that can be too conditional, and those combinations may never happen. Look into the expansions and booster packs, which you have, those can add an extra element the game without having to enforce house rules. The few cards in a single booster pack can actually alter game play to a more or less balanced game without having the magnitude of cards in a single game.

My perspective, of course, comes from personal experience. Hope this advice can help in your quest towards Munchkin enlightenment. :)

Thank you for the input. Unfortunately since I have no clue who Rick and/or Morty are I have not purchased that expansion. I have worked out the percentages of card types in my total supply of Door cards and applied those percentages to a reduced deck (300 cards) and will see how that plays. Yes that did require separating and counting over a thousand cards, my eyes are still tired.

Thanks for your help.
