Unnatural Axe is the first expansion for the Munchkin card game
by Steve Jackson Games
. Like Munchkin, it was designed by Steve Jackson
and illustrated by John Kovalic
. It adds 112 new cards to Munchkin, including the Unnatural Axe itself, the Cute Shoulder Dragon
, Druid Fluid, and the dreaded Hydrant. It also adds a new race to the game, the Orc
Unnatural Axe is an excellent expansion to a great game. While Unnatural Axe isn't playable on its own (naturally), it does add a lot of content to Munchkin.
Unnatural Axe is also a card in the XXXenophile collectible card game

Strategy analysis: Unnatural Axe, like most gizmos, is difficult to pop on all four edges... it usually pops other cards. If you can get it into your Toybox, though, you will have a very powerful ability at your disposal, since it will allow you to choose whether or not to have the Instructions on Modern Character cards (Roughly a sixth of all cards) affect you.
