1. Start your turn by drawing a Door card and then reading it aloud before displaying it for everyone to see
– If the card is a monster, fight it or run away from it. Fighting involves rolling your dice, adding bonuses from any items you may have and matching or exceeding the monster’s level.
– If you win the fight, collect Treasure cards as your rewards; if you fail you welcome penalty like losing levels!
2. After picking up any rewards and penalties (if applicable) from your Door card, you may take an encounter with another player. During this stage players can play one-time perks or use their Items to gain an advantage at another player’s expense. Trading items between players is also allowed during this phase.
3. Everyone except the active player has a chance to make something called a ‘Help’ by playing cards that add to his/her playthrough power or inflict negative effects on monsters. Helps need to be accepted by the active player in order for them to take effect (without exception).
4. Next up are ‘Curses’; these are special cards that target players with pre-existing items of ‘bad luck’ such as losing levels or making them lose their bonus points etc…..Curse cards must be accepted by players just like Help cards except with these their loss rather than gain is at stake!
5. Finally, all is concluded with end-of-turn bonuses for all players if applicable; These include gaining extra levels if the player has achieved certain thresholds during this turn cycle (mostly related to Luck & Gear stats).

Finishing the Game

At the end of the game, each player counts up the total number of Points they have.

Points are also awarded to any player who did not cheat during the course of playing.

The points earned from level gains are equal to 10 times the number of levels gained by a player. Example: If a player gained 3 Levels in play, then they would score 30 points (3 x 10=30). Any levels gained “from birth,” i.e., by discarding an item and picking up something else, do not count when totalling up your level gains at the end of the game.

Points can be claimed for killing monsters only if they are slain with one blow (which occurs exactly when a Player plays enough levels plus either items or curses which add up to more than what is printed on a Monster’s counter). A Player earns +10 points for each monster killed in this way (which is also known as exact combat). The exception to this rule is that all successful fights against Super Munchkins earn a total of +20 points instead. It’s worth noting that Cheating Monsters may not be killed for Points because doing so does not constitute ‘killing’ it.

Finally, any special cards with gold pieces indicated will award you with additional points; usually five per gold piece but double that if you successfully complete a Curse played onto you by another Player or Drawer before its effect happens! Additionally, any treasures/items held between Winning and Losing can also be claimed during Scoring Rounds if it states that option on certain cards or counters! Items like Big Footsucker count two points per card while Curses won’t contribute much at all since those normally result in -5 point penalties instead!
