November 15, 2013: Now Shipping! (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2013-11-15)

Your FLGS (http://storefinder.sjgames.com) is going to have all sorts of great stuff soon! We've got the Zombie Dice Brain Case (http://www.sjgames.com/dice/zombiedice/braincase.html), Munchkin Gets Promoted (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/getspromoted/), Munchkin Pathfinder: Gobsmacked! (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/gobsmacked/), and GURPS Zombies (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/zombies/)! http://www.sjgames.com/dice/zombiedice/img/braincase_sm.png (http://www.sjgames.com/dice/zombiedice/img/braincase_lg.jpg) Zombie Dice Brain Case (http://www.sjgames.com/dice/zombiedice/braincase.html)

Upgrade your game with the Zombie Dice Brain Case .*.*. a stylish, noisy dice cup with a screw-on lid ringed with 13 braaaaaaaiiiins. Brraaaiiiinnnnsssss!!!

It comes with one Zombie Dice Score Pad (http://www.sjgames.com/dice/zombiedice/scorepad.html) for easy brain counting.

This is not a stand-alone game. This is an accessory for Zombie Dice (http://www.sjgames.com/dice/zombiedice/).

Our Munchkin promotional cards (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/cards/) have been popular giveaways for years, but they've been tough for some fans to track down. Worry no more! We've taken a dozen of our favorite promo cards and made a new booster pack out of them .*.*. and, for good measure, we included three NEW cards, never before available!

This set includes:

Curse! Zombification
Cut In Line
John of the Dead
The Last Laugh
Love Thy Neighbor
Mug The Shopkeeper
Ranger Hireling
Stacked Deck
Whim of the Elder Gods
Zombie Santa

It also has three NEW cards: Billiard Ball of Nonexistence, Get A Head, and the titular Get Promoted!

After we finished Munchkin Pathfinder (http://pathfinder.worldofmunchkin.com/) we found another hob of goblins hiding under the desk .*.*. so we made a booster out of 'em. Fight off the Goblin Babies, Cog Goblin, and Goblin Hood with the Gobliterator! Just don't get Gobsmacked!*.*.*.
http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/zombies/img/cover_sm.jpg (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/zombies/img/cover_lg.jpg) GURPS Zombies (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/zombies/)Undead, Infected, or Just Plain Cursed?

So .*.*. you think you know zombies. Are you sure? You want to be certain about something like chopping off an arm after a crazy person gets bitey, and it would be most unfortunate if you were looking out for the walking dead when a little kid with a fever lunged for your brains. If only there were a guide to all this stuff!

GURPS Zombies aims to please. It goes into detail on all kinds of zombies undead and living, slow and fast, supernatural and superscience, and more. Its pages include:

A rules-free survey of zombies by fictional and folkloric origin, physical and supernatural type, and dramatic role.
Systematic guidelines for creating custom zombies to surprise your players.
Ready-to-use examples for the zombie-master in a rush: B-movie and fantasy undead, living-but-infected crazies, necromancers' pets, science experiments gone horribly wrong, surgical constructs gone disturbingly right, and many others.
Rules for topics dear to the zombie-lover's heart: horde management, splatter and contagion, cures, and even inventing new kinds of zombies!
Information for those who must confront zombies, including gear recommendations, rules for avoiding infection and simply surviving, and templates for survivors, zombie-hunters, and zombie-makers.
Advice on using all this in any genre. Who says zombies are only for horror?

Get ready for the time of your life or unlife, if need be. Every zombie fan will find something to cackle about here! GURPS players get the bonus of detailed rules and stats to tell them exactly how hosed they'll be when the zeds turn up on their doorstep.

Warehouse 23 (http://www.warehouse23.com/) News: Where Can You See Lions?

Only in Nymabe: African Adventures (http://www.warehouse23.com/item.html?id=AG3700), the African fantasy setting from Atlas Games (http://www.warehouse23.com/info/browse-atlas.html) that spins familiar genre staples in new and unusual directions!

All right, maybe you can see lions and tigers elsewhere, but perhaps nowhere as fun as in Nymabe (http://www.warehouse23.com/info/atlasd20.html#nyambe) .*.*. and your players will never see it coming.

http://www.warehouse23.com/img/e23minilogo.jpgThe Power of PDF: Nyambe: African Adventures (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=AG3700) is also available as a digital download on our sister-site, e23 (http://e23.sjgames.com/)!
