Munchkin Custom Cards by Zaree-Nilerabanwen Munchkin Custom Cards by Zaree-Nilerabanwen
I have been a fan of the Munchkin games for a few years now. I bought some expansions a little while back for my game.
Currently, my Munchkin collection includes the main set with two expansions (2 and 4) and the GBM Set.

Included in one of these expansions were 4 lonely blank cards.
The gauntlet was thrown down! Could I embrace the spirit and style of the World of Munchkin with the flair of Steve Jackson and John Kovalic and create my own cards to bring flawlessly into my set? Challenge Accepted!

After much brainstorming between my husband and I, these are the top picks and results (there has been some mention that we may now seek out more blank cards in the future).

For those who may miss the references in our geeky munchkin additions:
Top left: Inspired by the quote in "Despicable Me"
Top right: Minecraft... need I say more?
Bottom left: Inspired by kitten meme inspired by Zelda
Bottom right: Hagrid's umbrella in Harry Potter

I must give thanks to Munchkin forum members, who pointed me in the right direction for the fonts. For the Kovalic art style, I spread cards all around me as I drew in my sketchbook. I now step back and look over my response to the challenge....
Close enough!

For any fellow Munchkin fans who would like to add these cards to their deck, I do, in fact, ENCOURAGE you to download the full size image (it is 300 dpi full scale) and print for your gaming pleasure.

Hi there!
I've planned to play this game with my scout girls, which are quite young. I've the englisch version but I want to transform it to a easy understandable version for camp in dutch.
So my question is, Have you made these on the computer? Which fonts have you used then?

You will need to download the fonts off the internet as I do not believe they are standard fonts in any OS.
The title font is called 'Windlass'
The font for descriptions is called 'Caslon Antique'

It's easy to miss, but I mention in the description that you can download the image and print it.
This set is freely available to turn into your own cards. Have fun!

I am impressed by your ability to mimic the style. I plan on making a few custom cards but I had no intention to duplicate the style, just the level of goofiness.

These are great, but I think it would be better if the creeper said -5 against Thieves instead of +5 against everyone except thieves.

Which would have meant I would need to increase the Monster to 15 to make it equal to the stats I wanted: 10 for thieves and 15 for everyone else. The reason I did it as I did was to try and "creep" that onto most folks (all but thieves) who would initially see the card and think they would be fighting a 10 monster... until they read the details of the monster (bwahahahaha!). 
It is a personal preference, and I enjoy it as is.

How did you print these onto the blank cards? I want to make my own cards, but I'd rather they looked professional.

I don't know about directly printing.
I printed them normally on good paper and carefully cut and glued them on the card.
They look great, even though it does make the cards slightly heavier/thicker.

I don't recall where I got them, but I found some suggestions on the Munchkin forums and after some hunting on the internet ended up using Windlass (title style font) and Caslon Antique (descriptive font).

Very nice cards. I'm including at least a variation of 'It's so fluffy!' and 'The Creeper' into my deck. Wish you did more! Great style copy.

I really like all of thes, but especially the kitten card.

I also like to make my own Munchkin cards, along with Fluxx and Magic: the Gathering
