We surprised many of our fans in the United States by shipping your Munchkin Shakespeare Kickstarter rewards ahead of schedule. We've been seeing lots of posts on social media from happy people who have been reading through the cards and playing the games, which makes us very happy, too!
If you've received your Munchkin Shakespeare and want to talk about it, head over to our forums or post on the social media platform of your choice with the #PlayMunchkin hashtag. We'll share the best posts we find!
If you missed the Kickstarter, it's not too late: we'll start shipping to stores in October. Let your Friendly Local Game Store know now if you want a copy; preorders really do help!Share this post!
I just realized that while we discussed this at Gen Con, we didn't post anything about it here. So let me rectify this now. The Munchkin Collectible Card Game has an official release schedule, seen below:
- February 2018: Munchkin Collectible Card Game core release.
- May 2018: Munchkin Collectible Card Game: The Desolation of Blarg.
- August 2018: Munchkin Collectible Card Game: Fashion Furious.
- More to come!
The February release will include three two-player starter packs, each of which contains two class decks and everything else you need to start playing the Munchkin Collectible Card Game. (The first printings of each starter pack will also include a booster.) It also includes randomized 12-card boosters. The May and August releases are boosters only.
We'll continue to talk about the Munchkin Collectible Card Game as February gets closer. Watch this space and check out munchkinccg.game for more information.

Next January, we will ship the 25th printing of Munchkin 2 – Unnatural Axe and the 20th printing of Munchkin 3 – Clerical Errors. That's way more printings than many full games get and is a testament to the continuing support we're getting from Munchkin fans. Thanks, gang!Share this post!
Over Labour Day*, I'll be attending Fan Expo Canada in Toronto. Phil Reed and I went to this show a couple of years ago and had a blast, so I've been hoping for a return visit.
I'll be sitting on several panels and hope to have time to playtest some 2018 Munchkin expansions as well. Look for me in the open gaming area when I'm not behind a microphone! Here's my schedule as of today:
- Crowdfunding Your Concept: Friday, 6:15 p.m., 715B
- The D&D Panel (moderator): Saturday, 1 p.m., 717A
- Game Publisher Speed Dating: Saturday, 4 p.m., 712
- Playing in Someone Else's Sandbox: Sunday, 2:45 p.m., 705
I'm already making plans to obtain Timbits and poutine (not simultaneously), and maybe I'll bring home some wacky Canadian chip flavors, too.
* They insist that's how it's spelled, and who am I to argue with my hosts?Share this post!
At Gen Con, we announced a new release for January 2018: Munchkin Magical Mess. Moop is back with a new menagerie of messed-up monsters in this standalone companion to Moop's Monster Mashup.
Munchkin Magical Mess will be a Deluxe-style game and retail for $29.95. Now you know how to spend your Christmas money!Share this post!
If you'll be at Gen Con this weekend, make sure to come see us in our new location at booth 1413 for a variety of demos and show-and-tell of new and upcoming releases. And don't forget to come to the Munchkin Tavern – great food, cold drinks, awesome swag, and signings by special guests at 7:30 every night Thursday through Saturday.
We're looking forward to seeing everyone!

This past weekend, I attended Board Game Bash, a small convention that has been run the past several years here in Austin. This year, the convention was down the road from the office, which made it more convenient than ever!
In addition to the usual run of demos and handshakes, I got to playtest a couple of small Munchkin expansions scheduled for 2018, and Devin was there with the Munchkin Collectible Card Game.
Thanks to Austin MIB Seth for his hard work, and thanks as always to Jonathan Grabert for organizing a fantastic, fun weekend!Share this post!
