Munchkin is a popular game franchise in which players take on the role of adventurers exploring a dungeon. Players knock down a door at the start of the level and try to deal with whatever is hiding behind it. These cards range from useful items to curses that hinder the player to monsters that must be defeated. When faced with a monster too difficult for a player to handle, they can try to convince other adventurers to help. Opposing players will often curse a player when they face an enemy, trying to prevent a player from leveling up and winning the game.
