Munchkin pawns are plastic figures of the Munchkin Man in six different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. They were released with Munchkin Quest, then made available for purchase separately. The pawns have a special rule for use in any Munchkin card game:Any time you are entitled to go up a level or when you do something that WOULD earn you a level if you weren`t already Level 9 you may, instead, place a munchkin pawn in front of you. In any combat, you may discard it for a 1d6 bonus. You may only have one in front of you at a time.
