Munchkin Monster Pawns




Introduction: Munchkin Monster Pawns

I recently got infected with the Munchkin virus and after we tried poker chips and M&M's I decided it was time to make my own Munchkin monster pawns to keep track of our levels...

This is a quick and easy project that will take no more than an afternoon to make a handful of monster pawns.

Step 1: Tools & Materials

You will need:

- a couple of wooden stir sticks / coffee stirrers, the ones I used were about 5mm wide
- 6 (maximum number of Munchkin players) wooden balls, mine were 20mm in diameter
- some sort of hobby knife
- black pen
- woodglue
- sand paper
- optional: disc sander

Step 2: Sand the Base, Draw the Face

To make sure your monster doesn't roll away, sand a small piece of the ball to create a level surface for the ball to sit on. I used a disc sander to do this, but you can also use a piece of sand paper by putting it flat on your desk and 'rubbing' the wooden ball back and forth for a while. A wood file will also do the trick.

Now that it sits steadily on your desk, get your black pen and draw on your monster's face.

Step 3: Cut & Glue the Arms and Spikes

Take your wooden sticks and knife and cut out 2 (or more, depending on your monster) arms, legs, horns, spikes, wings, a tail, or whatever you think makes your monster look good. Or evil of course...

Use a very small amount of woodglue and glue the parts to the body of your monster.

Step 4: Enjoy Your Munchkin Monster Pawns!

Decorate your monsters however you like and use them together with your Level Counters during your Munchkin games. Or just make a bunch of these and use them to count the levels by themselves.
