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.
March 1, 2014: Munchkin 2014 Silver Piece Rule For March 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.
You may use the 2014 Silver Piece at any time -- except during any player's combat -- in any variety of Munchkin, including Munchkin Quest. Explain this rule before using it -- if you fail to do so, everyone BUT you goes up a level, and you LOSE a level!
Stand the coin on edge and flick one side to start it spinning. (You may have to try it a few times before you get a good spin going.) While the coin is spinning, everyone at the table guesses how they think it will land by showing thumbs up for Heads (Spyke) or thumbs down for Tails (the Seal of the Apocalypse). Everyone who is correct goes up a level (but this may not be the winning level). Anyone who fails to guess loses a level, unless they were not at the table.
If your guess was wrong, keep the Silver Piece. If your guess was right, give the Silver Piece to someone who guessed wrong.
You may only use one coin rule per game unless a specific rule says otherwise.
