The classic card game Munchkin today makes the transition from table top to small screen with the arrival of Munchkin: Quacked Quest on all the digital storefronts.
Featuring the same sense of humour and back-stabbing the tabletop card game has become famous for, players must compete against, and work together in order to reach the highest level.
Transitioning into a dungeon crawler, a team of up to four players travel through various levels of a dungeon completing objectives and claiming the spoils. Each level of the dungeon is randomly generated so no two games are the same!
Players can pick between four different races and classes, each with their own special skills. Then equip one of 20 different weapons to take down the 15 different enemies – excluding your friends that is – in a game that offers rich yet accessible gameplay.
The game is fully playable in local play, meaning the person you’re about to stab in the back must be in the same room as you. But fear not if you have no friends to play with, the game can be fully playable solo. And it wont insult you for playing on your own. Not too much, at least.
Munchkin: Quacked Quest is available to download now priced at £20.99. Buy it once though, and you can play this game on both your Xbox One and PC; Munchkin: Quacked Quest is another Xbox Play Anywhere title. Utilising the cloud storage means you can pick up where you left off on PC, and then continue on your Xbox. Failing that, PS4 and Nintendo Switch storefronts will also be on hand to deliver a download.

Dive into Munchkin: Quacked Quest and re-discover the parody, puns, and humor from the hit card game Munchkin by Steve Jackson. Gather gold, throw your foes (and friends) into sacrifice pits, collect ducks, eliminate the monsters—from reanimated skeletons to the Potted Plant and even the Plutonium Dragon—and reach the highest level to win the game! After all, there’s only one spot at the top and you just found a chainsaw… Sometimes the enemy is next to you on the couch. Gather your best friends, or enemies (doesn’t matter, you’ll turn on each other either way), and take down the rampaging hordes of monsters! Beat your “allies” to the treasure and gear up with legendary weapons such as the Rat-on-a-Stick, a Scepter that sends love or a Flare Gun.. Fast-playing and silly, Munchkin: Quacked Quest can reduce any roleplaying group to hysteria. And, while they’re laughing, you can be the first to grab the ducks. …HEY, THAT’S MY DUCK! Not afraid of chickens and trolls? Do you enjoy smashing random objects for loot? Are you eager to vanquish epic bosses and betray your friends? In either the solo or local multiplayer mode, you race through randomly generated dungeons and overcome increasingly bizarre challenges. Choose from four different races and classes and unleash their special skills at the right moment to gain an advantage over your opponents. The mix between accessible, yet rich, gameplay and a leveling race offers intense and skill-based brawling action. …I SAID DROP THE DUCK, BOB! Trust the Wight Brothers and their Fabulous Dungeonarium Machine (FDM™©) to generate unique dungeons filled with deadly traps, dangerous enemies and magnificent ducks. Every adventure will be enhanced by random modifiers. The more victories you claim, the more possibilities will be added to your game. Main gameplay features: • Play solo or with up to four players in couch mode and adventure through deadly dungeons where enemies lurk. Be careful, sometimes the most dangerous enemy is sitting right next to you… • Be the fastest, the most cunning, or the most effective at accomplishing the crazy objectives of each dungeon: capture ducks, slay monsters, defeat bosses, while throwing your friends/foes into pits and smashing furniture… everything you wish you could have done at your cousin’s wedding. • Four races and four classes available: become a fashionable Orc Priest, a grumpy Dwarf Wizard, or dozens of other combinations. (Management will deny any liability in case of a botched spell or missing limb.) • More than 20 weapons to wield for hitting, cutting, shooting, hugging, burning, smashing or knocking down more than 15 different enemies—or friends. Just in case, you know…they get in your way. And if you want to hit harder, run faster, or be even more annoying to the other players, there are nine almost-lethal items to choose from. • Randomly generated dungeons for infinite replay value! You will never need to purchase another game. Ever. #MarketingDPTApproves • Customized experience: choose player mode and game duration and let the back-stabbing, loot-grabbing, slaying, and betraying commence! HA HA! THE DUCK IS MINE! MINE!!!
