Legates' nightly event :)

I'm writing this post to share an awesome game with you guys. This game is so awesome that we play it every night (just about). It's our new favorite!



It's an awesome game it which you are all munchkins, and your goal is to get to level 10. To do that you need to defeat monsters and use cards. The best way to learn how to play, is to watch this video (thanks again Wil Wheaton)...

In this game when you come across a monster that is to hard for you, you can ask your friends (or in our case family) for help, and if a monster is to easy for you, those same friends can make it harder.

Although we play it most every night, I have only won twice (I'm not kidding). Jeremy, my lovely husband wins most of the time. Now this would make you think... "Well if you and the boys would start ganging up on him, then maybe he would lose." and yes that is true, but I just can't bring myself to do it. I don't like being mean to people, and I love him so much (yeah that's really not helping me right now).

We bought this game right after seeing the TableTop episode (the very same video up there). Thanks to TableTop we have a long list of games that we now want. I think it's great though, more family time.

One thing that all of you parents should know is (if you buy the game). Their is one card that has a bad word on it. We just ended up taking that one card out of the game. This does not effect the game play in anyway what so ever, because in Munchkin you can add and take away any number of cards, and kind of play it your own way. You can also make up your own cards :)

This is what we came up with

This was Zachary's idea (all of us love pirates)

This was Darien's idea (we are big Mario fans)

This was Nathaniel idea

This was my idea (Lame-O-Potato is one of our favorite phases in the Legates house)

The game was easy enough that it only took the kids a few times watching to catch on.

They love this game :0)

So if you don't have this game, then you need to go out and get it right now... (are you going? right now?)... You also need to start watching TableTop (on youtube), if you haven't already.

Thank you :)
