Given how treasure obsessed Munchkins are, it's a wonder we waited this long . . .
Munchkin Coins are special bits of promo goodness. Not only are they durable and shiny, the rules that govern their use change from month to month.
The first Munchkin Coin was the 2008 Munchkin Silver Piece. We've released a new Silver Piece each year since then, for 2009 through 2013, as well as a special Christmas variant set, a blue version for Game Trade Magazine in 2010, and a Gold Piece for Munchkin Quest.
All of these rules apply to any Munchkin game, and may be activated at any time (except where noted differently). The effect of each rule is limited to the owner of the coin, unless otherwise noted. Each Coin may only be activated once, and only one Coin is allowed per player.
Let us restate that for emphasis:
Each player may only have a single coin per game, and a single coin effect per game, unless stated otherwise.
August 1, 2014: Munchkin 2014 Silver Piece Rule For August 2014
Meta-rule for all of 2014: if you are playing Munchkin Apocalypse, or a blended game that includes Apocalypse cards, you may use the 2014 Silver Piece to Open or Close a Seal, your choice. Give the Silver Piece to the next player to successfully Run Away from a monster. As usual in Apocalypse, this rule cannot be used to reverse the opening of the Seventh Seal.
In any variety of Munchkin, including Munchkin Quest, you may "spend" the 2014 Silver Piece to block the use of any other promotional or accessory item (defined, in this case, as anything that has a Munchkin/MQ rule but is not a Munchkin/MQ card). You can even use your Silver Piece to block the use of another Silver Piece, of this or any year. Exception #1: If the use of the item requires its destruction or consumption, you cannot block its use once that destruction or consumption has begun. Exception #2: You cannot prevent the use of a Boon from the Munchkin Level Counter app.
Give the Silver Piece to the player whose plans you have just thwarted. He keeps the coin and cannot use the item he was trying to use for the rest of that game.
You may only use one Munchkin coin per game unless a rule says otherwise. This one does not.
