October 24, 2017: Munchkin Booty Just Keeps On Bootin' (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2017-10-24)

http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2017/BootyGAE2DIThumb.png (http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2017/BootyGAE2DI.png)The great thing about the pirate theme is that it never gets old. Every kid goes through the phase of "I wanna be a fearsome pirate." Some of us revert to that stage every September 19 for Talk Like A Pirate Day. Jack Sparrow, I blame you, though it was happening long before you came along.

At any rate, Munchkin had to get a pirate game*-*and in 2008, it did.

Lots of accumulated booty (arrr) later, it seemed time for a bigger ship. So we've reissued Munchkin Booty (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/guestartists/booty-siddell/)*in the deluxe Guest Artist Edition (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/guestartists/) format, with illustrations by Tom Siddell (Gunnerkrigg Court (http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/)). I really enjoyed working on the original Booty project; it's one of my favorites to play .*.*. and not just because I get to talk like a pirate. I thought at the time that I was getting every single stupid nautical joke out of my system. As it turned out, not really .*.*. we did an expansion, Jump the Shark (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/jumptheshark/)(2009), and then a mini-expansion, Fish & Ships (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/fishandships/) (2010).

Will there be more? It might be time, and I won't pretend we haven't talked about it. Booty is still very popular, and the bad ideas keep cropping up and we keep writing them down. Arrrr.
