Check out this new article from the Daily Illuminator that Steve Jackson Games posted:

March 27, 2012: Stakeholder Report Feedback (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2012-03-27)

We got a number of comments on the Stakeholders' Report. So: responses!

We want more detail about GURPS (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/)!

Read the weekly status reports that Kromm posts on his LJ here (http://dr-kromm.livejournal.com/tag/gurps). He goes into a lot of detail. He also wrote a couple of year-end reports in 2011, which appeared in the Daily Illuminator.

Aren't you worried about depending so much on Munchkin (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/game/)?

We've been getting this question for years. Short answer: no. Everything has a life cycle, but the curve for Munchkin (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/game/) is still rising. The big mistake would be to fail to support our big hit.

Well, what will you do if Munchkin (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/game/) ever loses popularity?

Invent something else. We have lots of projects under way. Remember that over our 30-year history, Munchkin (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/game/) was our fourth mega-hit, following Car Wars (http://www.sjgames.com/car-wars/), GURPS (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/), and INWO (http://www.sjgames.com/inwo/). Plus solid evergreens like Illuminati (http://www.sjgames.com/illuminati/) and popular new abominations like Zombie Dice (http://zombiedice.sjgames.com/) and Cthulhu Dice (http://www.sjgames.com/dice/cthulhudice/). Okay, I'm bragging now, so I'll shut up.

Printed books are dead! No, they're not! Yes, they are! No, they're not! Yes, they are!

There is nothing I can add to that.

What does Steve do with all that money?

Ah, if it were only that exciting! I pay taxes. I eat. I pay salaries and more taxes. I do get to put some away for the "Someday there will be a new house" fund. Also, LEGO is bought. And books. BOTH physical and digital!
