From the publisher's website:
Crush every foe you meet. Backstab your friends and steal their stuff. Grab the treasure and run. Munchkin Legends is the new Munchkin card game about legendary adventure . . . with none of that stupid roleplaying stuff. You'll defeat mythic monsters and grab fabled magic items! Don the Death Mask and Achilles' Heels. Wield Thor's Hammer . . . or maybe the Magic Bassoon. Start by slaughtering the Heebie-Jeebies and Johnny Zucchiniseed, and work your way up to the Kraken... Fast-playing and silly, Munchkin Legends can reduce any group to hysteria. And, while they're laughing, you can sneak past them for the win.
