Munchkin: Disney Edition Review

Order: Munchkin: Disney Edition

Last year USAopoly released a DuckTales edition of Steven Jackson’s strategic board game Munchkin. You can read our review of Munchkin: DuckTales edition here.

Released this year, right on time for the holiday season is USAopoly latest themed version of the game, Munchkin: Disney edition. This is the first edition of the game to cover the Disney movies. Our friends at USAopoly sent us a copy of Disney magic. Thanks USAopoloy.

Let’s start out with the well themed box.

The Box

The front of the box features a Disney themed door with a Mickey silhouette. This is the door that you kick down on each of your turns.

The back of the box features some of the cards that you will encounter while playing the game. It also gives you the basic premise of the game: 1. Kick open the door, 2. Fight the Monster, 3. Grab the Treasure, 4. Reach level 10 and Win.

The contents of the box includes 168 cards, 6 role cards, 6 plastic trackers, 1 six sided die, and the game instructions.

You can play this game with 3-6 players, and the Disney character roles that you get to choose from are Heroine, Villain, Adventurer, Dreamer, Animal Friend, or Sidekick. You can definitely tell that the Disney character representation in the cards of this game has a great variety from Disney’s deep bench of characters. Disney fans will have a hard type choosing their favorite role, but I have to give the edge to the Villain category for myself.

The back of the Role cards as the same classic Disney door art from the box cover. This time the door is brown instead of blue. I love that they chose Moana for the Heroine.

You win the game by getting to level 10 which you keep track of with blue plastic trackers.

The six sided die that comes with the game even has a unique design in place of the one side.

The 168 cards that come with the game are made up of two decks of cards. One deck is a treasure deck and the other is a door deck. The treasure deck card design features treasures from The Little Mermaid, Robin Hood, Moana, Aladdin, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, and Wreck-It-Ralph.

Let’s talk about how to play as well as take a closer look at some of the classic cards in these decks.

I will post a sample of some of my favorite cards from the decks.

Character Creation

Each adventurer starts at level 1, each with special abilities as described by their Role cards. You will then look at your starting eight cards that you get at the start. If you have any Class cards you may play one by placing it in front of you.

Class cards are a type of treasure card where you can be a Princess, Hero, Companion, or Fairy Godmother.

You may also hold a Motivation card for your character. Motivations include Love, Adventure, Family, and Inspiration.

If you have any Items or Ally cards you will play them by placing them in front of you.

The Ally cards is where you will find Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and Minnie. In addition to many other Disney feature animated characters both classic and modern.

Treasure Cards

The remaining Treasure cards in the treasure deck are made up of accessories that you may equip your character with to help in monster combat battles and to help you level up your character. Items may be traded or giving to other players as bribes. All of the treasure cards are not pictured below, but wow do they open up the door to some nostalgia feels. There are some deep cut Disney references in the Treasure cards.

Door Cards

The door deck is full of monsters and classic Disney villains with the Monster cards that you will battle. All of the villains have been given different level numbers that you must defeat. Here is a sample of them.

There are also Curse cards that will slow you down in your quest to reach level 10.

Final Thoughts

Munchkin: Disney Edition is available now for all of the Disney fans out there! It is a worthy and magical addition to the Munchkin family. You can tell a lot of special thought and care went into designing this game with all of the different classic and modern Disney franchises that are represented.

Wrap it up and put it under the tree. The box may even fit in your stocking if you have big enough stockings.
