Default Chez Guild

I figured this would be the appropriate spot to talk about this...

So, um, Chez Guild, huh? Any thoughts or enthusiasm about this one?

Really? Awesome! Way more appropriate than Munchkin, actually!

How can we not be happy about this? It's Chez, It's the Guild. Chez is an adult Munchkin. When I demo it, I put in that no one under 16 is allowed at the table.

Now, how will it mix?

Part of me wonders if they will go with an incompatible but similar system like Chez Dork did. I enjoyed the fact that each character started with specific obsessions that could change the game a bit and was a neat extra mechanic, but that made it difficult if not impossible to combine with the other genres.

If not, I'd expect something new like the Madness and Gloom counters.

Have you played them? I ask this question because I play Chez before I played Munchkin. Both use the same play style. Lots of parody, Screw you cards, get Screwed cards. Both play a lot alike. Chez is just more random.

I don't really see the similarity in game mechanics but if it works for you...
