Well, in fantasy role-playing games, monsters typically have longer lifespans than PC races, and their monstrous nature makes them more and more powerful the older they are. Plus, all the aforementioned experience gained by eating tasty adventurers makes them tougher to kill.

Oh, and did I mention that we're talking about FANTASY ROLE-PLAYING GAMES? It doesn't have to make real-world sense, especially since the game world of the munchkin role player is about the highest of high fantasy.

At any rate, I don't like this house rule at all, especially because it inverts the intended uses of the cards in a way that can be unbalancing.
