|Kick in the door!|
Munchkin has been out for a long time and has approximately eleventy billion expansions, which, to my knowledge, are pretty much just revisions/rewordings/reskins of the core game. Said core game has players building a hand of characters around a character; you start as a level 1 human nothing (no class), and you can pull race cards (that sounds wrong) and class cards to make yourself more interesting and badass in combat.
Game play consists of kicking in a door (drawing a card from the "door" deck) and, if it's a monster, either fighting it or running away. Fighting said monster involves totaling up all the bonuses your get from your various cards and weapons and so on, and seeing if you can beat the monster's level. If you can, kudos, you gain a level and can draw treasure from the treasure deck. If not, you get whatever Bad Stuff comes from losing to the monster (which can range from "nothing" to "you're dead and all your stuff falls into a volcano," probably).
