    A friend of mine brought it over today and we played the hell out of it. That was probably the most fun I've had with a traditional game in a very long time. I can't wait to play it some more this weekend. [​IMG] I wish there was a way to play this digitally or something online for free, cards cost a lot. Yeesh.

    My friend recently introduced me to this game and I'm inclined to agree with you, it is some of the most fun I've had playing cards in a long time. We've played a few games over the last couple of weeks and he's already picked up a couple of the expansions. I disagree about the online part though; this is a game designed to be played in person. Nothing beats the look of frustration on your friends' face as you screw him over for the umpteenth time. Game is expensive though, ~30 dollars for some cards? I thought 8 for regular ones was expensive [​IMG].

    I played it years ago and was great fun. Good that you've found it.

    That's exactly why I was hoping for an online version mainly, cardboard costs money. [​IMG]

    Probably any shop that specializes in role-playing books/games (the pen and paper type). Maybe a comic shop? Or perhaps online: http://www.sjgames.com/munchkin/game/ .

    Amazon.com sells them the cheapest, but they have so few left of the base game. [​IMG]

    I'm just sad I don't have RL friends who'd appreciate a good game of Munchkin or Paranoia. ;_;

    It's fun, used to play it a lot with friends from uni [​IMG] I preferred Munchkin Fu to the original, possibly because the one time we played with the original deck they threw in an expansion pack with 8 of us playing, and after a few *hours* in a single game fun wasn't starting to seem quite so fun anymore.

    We did Paranoia once as well, I didn't like it. I spent most of the game *trying* to get my character/s killed off.
