June 1, 2017: New Releases For May (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2017-06-01)

Summer means it's time for parties, pools, grilling, capes, ghosts, and cybernetic tanks .*.*. regular summer stuff. Start off the hottest months of the year with these even hotter new releases!http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2017/SuperMunchkinLarDI1Thumb.pngSuper Munchkin Guest Artist Edition (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/guestartists/super-desouza/)

Fly through the city. Smash the villains.*

This Guest Artist Edition (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/guestartists/) joins the unique visual style of comic creator Lar deSouza with Super Munchkin*-*a parody of capes, utility belts, day-saving, and nemeses. DeSouza's stylized comic art perfectly suits the game's pulpy sense of fun.

Be a Mutant, an Exotic, a Mystic, or a Techno. Get bonuses from a Plot Device, the Telezapinator, some Heroic Angst, or the (jet-powered) Pogo Stick. The higher your Level, the more Powers you can have. Battle dastardly masterminds, devastating monsters, and invading aliens from the next dimension*-*from the wimpy Bucketman all the way up to the Big Ol' Planet Eater Guy himself.http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2017/GhostsLoveCandy1080Thumb.pngGhosts Love Candy (http://www.sjgames.com/ghostslovecandy/)

It's Halloween – and you're a ghost who loves candy!

Haunt trick-or-treaters so they'll leave you their sugary treats*-*collect more than your spectral opponents, and you win! But don't scare the costumed kids too much, or they'll run away*-*and that means less candy for you!

Pay special attention to the kids' unique powers, too; each one is themed to their Halloween costume. May the savviest spook win!

The ghost, kid, and candy cards feature frighteningly adorable art. This is the cutest game you've ever played about a haunting! It's scary, fast-playing fun for three to six phantoms.http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2017/OgreScenarioBook3CoverThumb.pngOgre Scenario Book 3 (http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/scenariobook3/)

Get ready to rumble.*

Ogre Scenario Book 3 has nine new scenarios to expand your Ogre battles. Written and designed by Steve Jackson for use with Ogre Designer's Edition (http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/products/ogredesigner/), most are compatible with Ogre Sixth Edition (http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/products/ogre6e/) as well.

An Ogre questions its luck as it returns home*in "Gauntlet."*"Longview" features a Command Post that can fight back. And in "Sidewinder," the map is turned on its side, changing the dynamics of the terrain for both the Ogre and the defenders. These and six other scenarios are curated for your enjoyment!

Also, be sure to check out these other scenario*collections:

Ogre Scenario Book 1 (http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/scenariobook1/)*-*A classic, now updated for Ogre Sixth Edition.

Ogre Scenario Book 2 (http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/scenariobook2/)*-*The winners of our scenario contest from the Ogre Designer's Edition Kickstarter.http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2017/cover_lg4Thumb.jpgGURPS Hot Spots: The Silk Road (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/hotspots/silkroad/)

Trek across thousands of miles of adventure.

For centuries, East met West along the Silk Road. With GURPS Hot Spots: The Silk Road, this time and place comes alive for your campaigns, with details about the region's people, food, religions, languages, and architecture. Travel with rare goods through bandit country, navigate micro-wars for dominance, or quest for holy lore and artifacts. Use The Silk Road and its included maps in your historical campaigns .*.*. or blend it with other GURPS genres, from Dungeon Fantasy (http://www.sjgames.com/dungeonfantasy/) to Horror (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/horror/) and beyond!http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2017/pyramid103-cvr_1000Thumb.jpgPyramid #3/103: Setbacks (http://www.warehouse23.com/products/SJG37-2703)

Not all challenges can be solved with a sword or blaster.

To rise above adversity, you must first understand the problems you face. This issue of Pyramid, the PDF magazine for roleplayers, presents a variety of setbacks and obstacles for adventurers to overcome. David L. Pulver offers a system for GURPS Spaceships (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/spaceships/spaceships1/) malfunctions to endure and fix. Matt Riggsby gives designer's notes for GURPS Hot Spots: The Silk Road (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/hotspots/silkroad/) that includes a handful of new mythic monsters perfect for that historical setting. With this issue, it's the right time for things to go wrong!http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2017/cover_sm.jpgCardboard Heroes Castles: Walls and Towers (http://www.warehouse23.com/products/SJG30-2150)

Print a castle you can put in your backpack!

Cardboard Heroes Castles (http://www.sjgames.com/heroes/castles/) are great-looking 3-D structures that are easy to set up for play .*.*. and designed to fold down again for travel or storage!

This set continues the Cardboard Heroes (http://www.sjgames.com/heroes/) tradition of great miniatures and accessories, with four towers and four walls (plus assorted castle goodies). Assemble a set as a full castle or two smaller strongpoints. Cardboard Heroes Castles are full-color, gorgeous, and designed to be portable. And with multiple sets, you can make your fortress the envy of the surrounding kingdoms!

(This digital edition is trickier to print than most other Cardboard Heroes PDFs, since the original set was printed on oversized cardstock, die-cut, and scored. Please read the instructions in the preview and make sure you're up to the challenge; this set is not for the faint of heart!)
