Star Munchkin: Scifi Parody For Everyone

Star Munchkin  

Are you a fan of science fiction? Then this is the Munchkin for you!

Take it to the stars with Star Munchkin!
Oozing with space travel, science fiction tropes and film and television references, Star Munchkin is set in space, with futuristic guns, alien monsters and futuristic treasures. Pick this up if you're a fan of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Firefly, Dune, and similar space based shows.

If you appreciate having a Red-Shirted Hireling around to do your heavy lifting and dying, know exactly how to wield a Sonic Screwdriver, are a fan of Red Dwarf and can distinguish a Death Star from a moon from a thousand light years away, then the Star Munchkin is the version for you! It even references the film Invasion Of The Bee Girls, for hardcore geeky reference fans.

The stackable 'aser weapons are probably the bit of game play most worth buying Star Munchkin for (other than the jokes, obviously). It's a fun rule in which all weapon items ending in 'aser' are allowed to stack together to form upgraded super combination weapons. Like Laser-phaser, or the Bananafanafofaser-razor-laser. Truly, the guns of the future.

Once you've got the first game, the Space Ships booster pack adds Ships, which are pretty awesome. Oh, and if you combine this with The Good, the Bad, and the Munchkin, you get Firefly!
