Munchkin: Disney is a Musical Adventure

Munchkin: Disney is the fifth game we sent to a high school in Oklahoma for students to play. Unlike other games, being played by several classes, this was reviewed by a group of four female-identifying students over two afternoons.

Players will find their favorite characters from across Disney’s most cherished franchises in this magical edition of Munchkin. Villains and unexpected pitfalls await in this role-playing card game where hunting for treasure, lining up Allies, and collecting Gear is all part of your world as you race to be the top Disney fan at Level 10. Are you ready to kick open the door and see what’s on the other side?

What’s In The Box?

How’s it Play?

So, here’s the thing. High schoolers are a wild control group. As documented in previous games they’ve reviewed, while they’ll at least try to play the game by the original rule set, they have more often than not, made their own “home brew” version (that also has a tendency to have at least some tenets of ERS included).

While the girls didn’t seem to have too many problems with the rules on this go around, one of them who must have some exposure to card deck games asked:

“So, it’s like Disney tried to make their own Magic: The Gathering?”

The original gameplay did return mostly positive opinions, with three of the girls saying they’d play that version again. All four said they would recommend the game to their friends. However, they greatly preferred their home brew version that consists of:

The winner is the person who has the most cards by the end. You draw a card from the pile and win said card if you can correctly sing a song from the movie correlating to the character/a character on the card.

So, basically they turned it into a competitive Disney sing-a-long.

The Verdict?

Overall, all four girls had fun with the game and thankfully avoided the “we don’t understand these rules!” problem other games ran into. The actual gameplay was enjoyable, but like with previous games, teenaged imagination means that there are multiple forms of gameplay they will find a way to come up with. Granted, that also means that there are endless ways to play and re-play, so value for the money is pretty well spent!

You can purchase Munchkin: Disney for $24.95 at The Op.
