I often get asked what my favorite Munchkin card is. That's not a question I can answer intelligently; with thousands of cards, picking just one is impossible. (Although if you absolutely pinned me to the wall, right now my favorite card is one from Munchkin Magical Mess, because the art is exactly what I asked for and far, far more creepy than I could possibly have imagined.) However, picking three favorite cards from a single set is something I can do, and I've chosen Munchkin Spell Skool. Note that this is a snapshot in time, and my favorite cards will probably change down the road. But for now, here are my thoughts. Favorite Effect: The Chess Club card has two abilities.

#RPGaDay 2017: Which RPG Do You Prefer For Open-Ended Campaign Play?

Mon 14 August 2017 by blackcampbell from The Black Campbell

As with other questions we’ve had this year, my response is “All of them?” A more precise answer would be, whatever one you have on-going material for. I’ve played a lot of long games, but they usually last about two to three years before they run out of ...

Wed 09 August 2017 by Tim Knight from HeroPress

I would argue that if you and your group know the system well then any game will do, the answer really involves coming up with a tight mini-campaign scenario that can be wrapped up in 10 sessions. Obviously, looking back at yesterday's question, it also depends how long the ...
