October 9, 2017: You Need This, And I Ain't Kitten Around

Munchkin KittensMunchkin Kittens is back in Warehouse 23! This 30-card expansion sold out within months of its release, so we're pleased to offer it again. It has some fantastic art from Katie Cook and cards by noted ailurophile Devin Lewis.

If you haven't picked up its companion set, Munchkin Puppies, you're missing out on the Munchkin set that loves you just as much as you love it! And it won't chew on your slippers . . .

October 2, 2017: October Means It's Time For Munchkin

Of course, that's true of every month, but October is especially good because everyone's getting excited about Halloween (or at least the post-Halloween candy sales) (I admit nothing). With all manner of evil nasties in the zeitgeist, this is the perfect time to explore some of the Munchkin games and expansions that go especially well with the season. If you haven't picked any of these up, talk to your Friendly Local Game Store or come visit us at Warehouse23.com.

For pure Munchkin horror, we have Munchkin Bites! and Munchkin Zombies and their expansions. These sets mix very well, if your brain can get past the idea that you're a vampire/werewolf/etc. AND a zombie. (You're munchkins; you'll figure it out.) For more esoteric horror, we have the entire Munchkin Cthulhu series of games and accessories. If you'd rather fight the living dead than become them, check out Munchkin Undead – this mini-expansion mixes with any Munchkin game. Plus, there's Munchkin Clo– Oh, wait, we haven't announced that one yet. Forget I said anything.

If you prefer the lighter side of Halloween gaming, check out Munchkin Tricky Treats. It's getting a little hard to find, although some stores probably still have copies. It's the only Munchkin game that is guaranteed to have candy in every pack!

And if you want to branch out into some non-Munchkin Halloween games, might I suggest Muertoons and Ghosts Love Candy?

Whatever you end up enjoying this Halloween, we hope it's safe and fun. We want you all to hang around for a long time!

September 25, 2017: Have You Been Reading Munchkin Musings?

It's possible some of you don't realize that, in addition to our weekly Munchkin News (which you're reading right now), we have a blog of news about everything happening at Steve Jackson Games. It's called the Daily Illuminator and posts, well, daily.

Every month for the past year and a bit, I've had a news post called "Munchkin Musings" (link goes to the September post) that is a summary of things we've announced here and on our forums and Twitter. If you go back through the Illuminator archives, you can see previous month's posts, or you can trust to Google or your favorite other search engine.

Make sure you're getting all the Munchkin news; watch for Munchkin Musings every month!

-- Andrew Hackard

P.S. If you're reading this on the morning of Monday, September 25, you still have time to back our Kickstarter for Munchkin Holiday Grab Boxes! They come with the 12 Bonuses of Munchkin Christmas rule and a whole lot of extra swag, no matter what your pledge level . . . but the Kickstarter ends at noon on Monday! Check it out now!

September 18, 2017: Munchkin Shakespeare Takes The Stage!

Munchkin Shakespeare DeluxeWe 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!

Shipping to destinations outside the U.S. should begin very soon. Keep watching our Twitter and Facebook for the latest news.

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!

September 11, 2017: Munchkin Collectible Card Game Release Information

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.

September 4, 2017: Milestone Reprints

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!
