Since the rules specifically state that you can't do it, it can't be normal. It has to be an aberrant practice, which we politely call a house rule.

I haven't gone through all the posts here, so I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but I think the only house rule my group usually plays with, is that you only gain a level from beating a monster if the monster is at the same level or higher than yours. This prevents powerful players at perhaps 30+ fight a level 1 monster for the win :)

So far the only special rule that has come up at my FLGS is not tearing, shredding or otherwise destroying your bookmarks, all other effects, like giving them temporarily or permanently, to other players still apply.

It does sometimes suck when you find yourself on the wrong end of it at times, but it is indeed awesome when you manage to get it!

I got Munchkin Deluxe as a gift this Xmas and have so far only played it (lots and lots of times) as a two player game and it's worked great with this rule, which I found on another forum:

You can only be Munchkinly to your opponent if they are level 4 or above (so you cant play curses or negatively influence their combat etc while they are levels 1-3.)

And to add a twist to the end of the game, when a player gets to level 10 they actually take the treasure from the defeated monster. If the treasure includes any Go Up A Level cards then they must play the cards immediately but go DOWN a level for each card. And if they get the Steal A Level Card then they go down a level while they opponent goes up (even if the opponent is on level 9!)

My only house rule is that you can't tie for the win.

I really like that. I'm going to steal it.

Hey Guys, Its been a very long time since I been on the forums and im looking forward to spending some time on here and catching up, in the mean time A Few questions I would like your opinion on,

I have almost all of the 15 / 30 card booster packs (Fairy Dust, Munchkinomicon, Dragons, Golbins, etc etc)

I used to play munchkin with them all mixed up in the Main door and Treasure decks. Allowing for an occasional special card draw.

A few years ago I participated in my first munchkin tournament and what they did was,

Each player got their own 15 card booster pack and they can either draw from the main draw deck or their own personal 15 card booster deck . Which was a super fun and different way of playing with it, and ive essentially adopted this technique.

Now that Hipsters is out, Its a 30 card deck, and it doesn't allow for this type as the deck is twice as big.

How do you guys play with these booster decks ? Or do you just mix them up in the base set ?

Do you have any various ways you can recommend ?

I was really disappointed with all the weak dragons in the Here Be Dragons set, so I used a pen to modify their levels and treasures to be harder. Seriously, there were like 4 Level 1 dragons. Dragons are supposed to be the ultimate boss beasts!

Also, I took out like 25% of the GUALs from my conglomerate of expansions, since they seemed to always clump together when shuffled and ruined the fun of the game.
