I wanted to play with all my decks too. I adapted the portal rule. On his turn a player can discard 3 cards to roll a die detemining what deck is next used. Or 4 cards to choose. So far I like the way it's played out.

That's an interesting way to go about it. And I mean interesting in a good way. I think I may try that out.

In Uno, if someone else says Uno before you do, you have to draw 4 cards: if the player down to one card can finesse someone else to say, "Uno," does he get to draw 4 cards?

In our box of Munchkin Booty, the level gained by being killed by Davy Jones CAN be the winning level. We call that the Jack Sparrow win.

It'd be more punishing if failing to declare "Uno" would force you to discard 4 items from the table. ;)

In our Box of Holding Super Munchkin, Mystics are not prohibited from using Forewarned and Forearmed. We do not feel Mystics are sufficiently underpowered to justify the restriction, and it seems to us that Forewarned and Forearmed is very appropriate flavor for Mystics: it makes them like those Hindu gods with lots of arms.

When we have lots of folks over and one game of Munchkin just isn't big enough, we get two going side to side. We shuffle the blank cards into the decks. When one is drawn, that player stands up and yells "CHANGE PLACES!!"

Everyone drops their cards and finds another spot immediately and the games continue like nothing happened. All your scheming is for naught! :D

House rule related to this thread: For the card Midnight Munchkin Madness we count booster wrappers as "boxes." Initially we did that because we only had 1 proper box, but several boosters. But now that we have lots of each, it just makes the card more powerful (and therefore more fun!)

During a few games the last month or so, we have a new house rule for blank cards.
When the decks are shuffeld, we mix in a few blanks, and when you get a blank card, you have to create it on the fly. They may not duplicate classes etc, but items, curses and various enhancers and cheats are ok. If a value are requierd, a Munchkin die are rolled.

Needless to say, most of them are quite internal, refering to events most of the group have participated in or heard about.

A favorite is the curse: Fell of the Bridge, loose your armor or sink.
Refering to an event where one of the members of our group fell into a small stream. He slipped on the wet wood of a footbridge, trying to show off his good balance and got wet, and we all hade a bit of a laugh :-)
He's a good sport and can take the joke.

I've been playing Munchkin during the lunch hour with some friends and we're trying to figure out how to make it last around 45 minutes. Yesterday we tried starting at level 4 and that actually ended to quick. Previous times we had to stop and the highest level player was between 6-8. Any thoughts?
