Default Munchkin + Expansions

I plan to have all the expansions for the basic fantasy Munchkin game that are not redundant. I just started with new editions of the Munchkin 1 and 2, and so I'm pretty sure I don't need GUaL. However, I was reading an entry in the Illuminator, mentioning that Munchkin Blender, due mainly to its different color scheme, has been replaced for the fantasy Munchkin game with Munchkin 7. This would make getting both expansions redundant and unnecessary, correct? Or would it be good to have the extra powerful cards mixed in there, as the whole deck, with Munchkins 1-7, Marked for Death, Fairy Dust, Waiting For Santa, and Santa's Revenge has a total of 808 regular cards and 20 dungeons? I don't want to have way too many of the "good" cards, either, however, as that would make race and class cards somewhat rare in comparison.

To be UTTERLY clear:

Munchkin 7 More Good Cards is being retired. That set will not be reprinted in its current form.

Munchkin Blender is being retitled Munchkin 7 Blender. It is also being reskinned as a fantasy set, rather than sui generis, and will use some of the More Good Cards art where that's appropriate. All art will be (re)colored.

The cards from More Good Cards that were not duplicates of Blender cards will be put into a booster whose title I'm not yet at liberty to announce. That art will be colored and text modified as necessary.

Both Munchkin 7 Blender and the More Good Cards "leftovers" booster will be released early next year. At that point, all expansions for fantasy Munchkin will be in print in updated, color editions, and we can focus on new releases. (And since 2011 is Munchkin's tenth anniversary, we have some really fun ones on the horizon . . .)

It means "you need a better dictionary."

Or, if you prefer, it's Latin for "of its own kind."

It was just announced that the cards from dice will be in a booster titled Munchkin Reloaded!, but the dice theselves are in limbo due to cost and time in putting them out. The booster is scheduled to be released in November.

That's been answered in another thread, but in short yet exhaustive detail:
  • As mentioned above, Munchkin Reloaded! is on the horizon, and will contain the cards from the Munchkin Dice set.
  • There are no current plans to make more of the oversized d10's from the Munchkin Dice set, although there are Rumors of possible Devious Schemes to bring 'em back.
  • Each core set comes with one Munchkin d6 in its color scheme.
  • No Munchkin expansion - besides the +6 Bag O' Munchkin d6, which should be out Real Soon Now - comes with dice.
I think that's all the news to be had about Munchkin dice, Munchkin Dice, and all things related.
