Steve66, what seems like a simple question is not. Each set has it's own flavor and twist. However, for a semi newbie, Star, Booty and Zombie Munchkin are pretty straight forward and very fun. The sets also have expansions which add more cards into the mix.

Salem Midnight Crew / MIB 1987 Or the Wrong MIB. Salem Cell leader, for the clueless in Oregon.

nothing wrong with starting with the original but yeah if theres any particular genre you like there are plenty of options. Munchkin Fu is a blast and so are Zombies, Cthulhu, Bites, and Apocalypse

For starting players, besides the Original, I would recommend The Good, The Bad, and The Munchkin. Even if cowboys aren't your thing, this is a great basic game. It only has classes ( i.e. no races' accents etc.) and the only extra rules addition are Steeds and Hirelings.

Conan is another pretty straight forward set.

Super was my second set. It adds Powers, which are a lot of fun.

As the other posters said, go with what you like. These are just what I like :)
