August 22, 2017: Munchkin Musings: August 2017 (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2017-08-22)

http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2017/andrew4.png (http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2017/andrew4.png)Greetings, humble Munchkin fans! It's been a really quiet month .*.*.*

Just kidding! We had a busy Gen Con (http://gencon.com) full of Munchkin announcements, and we know some of you missed out*– so here's the rundown!

We announced a new game:*Munchkin Magical Mess (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/magicalmess/)! Fans of Moop's Monster Mashup (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/moopsmashup/) and/or terrible jokes (http://pun.me/pages/dad-jokes.php) do not want to miss this Deluxe set! Written by Andrew Hackard and illustrated by Ian McGinty, this game ships in January .*.*. but fans got to play a mockup set at Gen Con.
The Munchkin Collectible Card Game (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/munchkinccg/) has an official release date! The three starter sets and the first wave of boosters will be in stores in February.
All the goodies for our Munchkin Shakespeare Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/847271320/munchkin-shakespeare) backers are on boats, heading for the warehouse. We were showing off an early sample of Munchkin Shakespeare Deluxe (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/shakespearedeluxe/) at Gen Con, too.
Our partners at USAopoly (http://usaopoly.com) were showing off Munchkin: Rick and Morty (http://usaopoly.com/games/munchkin-rick-and-morty), and it wasn't squanchy at all!

We had some non-Munchkin things to talk about, too (Super Kitty Bug Slap, holla!), but that's not my bailiwick, so I'll leave them to others to discuss.

I'm back in the office for a bit, to work on some reprints and new items for 2018, and then off to Toronto to be a guest and panelist at Fan Expo Canada (http://fanexpocanada.com). I'm looking forward to returning to this show; I had a blast here a couple of years ago and I'm very pleased to have been invited back. When I'm not on panels, expect me to be in the open-gaming area running demos and playtests. Plus, real poutine!

That's it for this month. Next month, look for more news about Shakespeare and maybe even some more hints about our 2018 calendar.
