This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

No.

Look back at this thread, give it a good read. Rawma had no interest until he read a complaint about the Change Your Sex result in Munchkin. That triggered him and he got his panties in a wad over someone's individual personal gaming preferences that do not affect anyone outside of that person's gaming group. I'm sick and tired of this reborn Moral Majority we've got crapping on everyone who doesn't toe the same virtues they signal.

I was actually talking about the stalking. And despite your concerns, Rawma is correct, removal of those cards will affect game balance--a non-issue because it screws everyone equally (except for the obscure bookmark card, which, again, Rawma is correct). These may be pedantic issues but...this is a gaming forum, and so reasonable to bring up, even if his tone bugs you.

For purposes of playing with kids, protecting them in every way possible from the current "trans child" madness is a no-brainer against preserving  the purity of an old satirical game played seriously nowhere.

Doom, it's kinda crazy but I've seen Munchkin tourneys played super cereal at cons. I don't get it whatsoever.

As for max number of players, we've played Munchkin with 10-12 players and its scales with no issue, but the "take that" aspect generally is focused on your neighbors and the quiet, sneaky player usually wins while the rest of the dorks wail on each other.

This thread brought some life into the Other Games forum, which can sometimes be dead.

Hooray!!!
I need you to roll a perception check.....
