Your chance to wade in the shorts of your favorite underwater characters is coming soon, because the popular role-playing card game Munchkin is bringing Bikini Bottom to your tabletop! Dive into the endearing and irreverent world of Nickelodeon’s silliest sponge and beat your frenemies to Level 10 in MUNCHKIN: SpongeBob SquarePants!
The #1 animated TV series for 18 consecutive years is hitting the deck (of 168 colorful cards) in the latest collaboration to come from The Op and Steve Jackson Games, which pairs the improvisational fun and adventure of best-selling game Munchkin with the comical characters, phrases, and places fans love from SpongeBob SquarePants. Play as SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick Star, Squidward Tentacles, Mr. Krabs, Sandy Cheeks, and Pearl Krabs as you gather Items and earn Treasure with the help of their special abilities!
“Kick Open the Door” to find yourself faced with foes such as the Krabby Patty secret-seeking Sheldon J. Plankton and gruel-loving Captain Starfish. If the chance encounter doesn’t reveal an adversary but a Curse card instead, you’ll have to deal with inconveniences like Smelly Smell, which makes you lose your Allies, or Undercook the Patty, which puts you in a helpless holding pattern until you level up!
Luckily, as Munchkin-lubbers know, it’s the Treasure that will make it worth treading uncharted waters. With bonus Items like Magic Conch Shell and King Neptune’s Trident, you’ll be summoning heroes and freezing enemies on your way to victory! Allies like Fred and Larry the Lobster will offer support if the other players appear to be too wishy-washy.
MUNCHKIN: SpongeBob SquarePants is for 3-6 players ages 10 and up, and will be adding to a fantastical lineup of other Steve Jackson Games products such as MUNCHKIN: Disney, MUNCHKIN: Critical Role, and MUNCHKIN: Marvel for $24.99!
