MIDNIGHT MUNCHKIN MADNESS
I Will Never Grow Up Gaming will be hosting a “Midnight Munchkin Madness” event once again. We started this at the 2nd annual FMGCon and loved it! Now, we’re doing it EVERY YEAR! Join us in the madness!
Munchkin brings you the essence of the dungeoncrawling experience . . . without all that messy roleplaying!
Kill the monsters! Steal the treasure! Stab your buddy!
We will be providing the Munchkin cards and a variety of expansions (randomly distributed to each table).
We just need people to sign up to participate! Sign up in advance here on the website (preferably) or at the front desk on the day of the event!
Play with friends or even better yet, play with complete strangers (because, let’s face it, we’re ALL a little strange)!
Random prizes will be awarded throughout the event.
These prizes will have absolutely NOTHING to do with HOW WELL YOU ARE PLAYING or even if you’re winning but rather will be handed out completely arbitrarily!
MIDNIGHT MUNCHKIN MADNESS
11pm to 1am – Approximately 2 hours total game time
Maximum of 4 Tables available with room for 3-6 players per table.
We will consolidate players into fewer tables if required.
For those who have never played you can view the official base game rules HERE. All additional rules will also be in play. If you don’t know those rules .. that’s ok! We do and we will provide assistance during the event.

Publisher’s Description ;
Go down in the dungeon. Kill everything you meet. Backstab your friends and steal their stuff. Grab the treasure and run.
Admit it. You love it.
This award-winning card game, designed by Steve Jackson, captures the essence of the dungeon experience… with none of that stupid roleplaying stuff. You and your friends compete to kill monsters and grab magic items. And what magic items! Don the Horny Helmet and the Boots of Butt-Kicking. Wield the Staff of Napalm… or maybe the Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment. Start by slaughtering the Potted Plant and the Drooling Slime, and work your way up to the Plutonium Dragon…
And it’s illustrated by John Kovalic! Fast-playing and silly, Munchkin can reduce any roleplaying group to hysteria. And, while they’re laughing, you can steal their stuff.
Munchkin is a satirical card game based on the clichés and oddities of Dungeons and Dragons and other role-playing games. Each player starts at level 1 and the winner is the first player to reach level 10. Players can acquire familiar D&D style character classes during the game which determine to some extent the cards they can play.
There are two types of cards – treasure and encounters. Each turn the current players ‘kicks down the door’ – drawing an encounter card from the deck. Usually this will involve battling a monster. Monsters have their own levels and players must try and overcome it using the levels, weapons and powers they have acquired during the game or run away. Other players can chose to help the player or hinder by adding extra monsters to the encounter. Defeating a monster will usually result in drawing treasure cards and acquiring levels. Being defeated by a monster results in “bad stuff” which usually involves losing levels and treasure.
