April 10, 2018: Munchkin Musings: April 2018

Red Pen of Doom

Spring has hit Austin in a big way, which means pretty wildflowers next to our highways, random storms on clear blue days, and all the pollen you could ever ask for (and a whole lot more that you did NOT). It also means it's time for another installment of news from the world of Munchkin!

As we announced on Kickstarter recently, Munchkin Starfinder is on a ship headed toward the U.S., due to arrive at our distribution partner in mid-May. Go read the update for more information and get ready to start fighting the Swarm!

Two Kickstarter projects by other companies closed with great success. If you backed Munchkin: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or The Red Dragon Inn: Munchkin, you already know about those. If not, keep watching this space for an announcement when they hit the shelves at your local game store. Thanks to the teams at IDW Games and SlugFest Games for being great partners and introducing Munchkin to new fans!

We recently announced Munchkin Cheats, coming out in June. I had a great time writing and playtesting this set, and Lar deSouza's art elevates my silly ideas to a whole new level. And who doesn't like to cheat (according to the rules and customs of your table, naturally!) in your Munchkin games? I expect a lot of fun will be had by the people who try out this expansion. Also in June, a whole lot of reprints will be hitting shelves to make sure everyone's ready for a Munchkin-filled summer.

Over on the Munchkin Collectible Card Game side of the fence, the team worked hard to get the Fashion Furious expansion out the door last month and has been nailing down all the cards for Grave Danger, the last 2018 expansion for the game. The cards are being playtested right now, while our team of illustrators is working to turn our ideas into beautiful card art. Fashion Furious will be out this summer and Grave Danger will be out late this year. And don't forget that The Desolation of Blarg hits stores next month!

That's enough news for one month . . . we still have a lot of cool things to announce for 2018 even as I begin working on 2019. In fact, my first draft of the January 2019 expansion is already being illustrated by [ARTIST NAME REDACTED] - I can't wait for y'all to see what they're coming up with!

Catch you in May!
