Munchkin is a humorous card game that pokes fun at other, more-serious fantasy games. In the game, the players compete with one another to fight monsters and get levels. The first person to reach Level 10 is the winner. During the game, the players reveal cards and must do what the cards say. Each Munchkin game comes with a few blank cards you can customise and make into anything you like. Making the cards is not difficult, but it does require some thought.

  1. 1

    Decide what you want the cards to do. Munchkin cards can include race cards, class cards, monster cards, curse cards, item cards and instant level cards. You could make just one of these categories, or all of them. You can also make cards that counteract existing cards, such as a card that negates the "Divine intervention" card, where all clerics go up a level, even if it means they win the game.

  2. 2

    Draw a basic design for the card onto a scrap piece of paper. Most Munchkin cards have a funny name or rhyme on the card, such as the "Bee's knees" card, which could add protective armour to the knees by coating them in bees. This could also be a curse card and prevent the wearer from wearing any other armour. You will want to include a small picture, the name of the card, what it does, how many hands it takes or where it goes on the body and how much it costs.

  3. 3

    Transfer the information from the paper to the card. Try to write as neatly as possible so that the cards are easy to read during game place. Allow the marker to dry for about 10 minutes.

  4. 4

    Mix the new cards in with the original cards and play the game.
