October 23, 2018: Munchkin Musings: October 2018 (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2018-10-23)

http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2018/AndrewHackardMunchkinCzarRedPenOfDoomDI11.pngHope everyone is having a spooooooky October! Here's our monthly roundup of news from the world of Munchkin.

The biggest and best news is: we have a new website! Our IT team has been working for most of this year to get munchkin.game (http://munchkin.game) up and running and ready to show the world, and we're very pleased that the hard work is paying off. For us, the coolest part of the site is that any of us can edit or create pages .*.*. no more bugging Jimmie for trivial fixes! If you haven't taken a look, head over and kick the tires. When you're done, visit the forums to point out our mistakes (http://forums.sjgames.com/showthread.php?t=159990) or tell us your ideas for making the site even cooler (http://forums.sjgames.com/showthread.php?t=159993)!

Our other big announcement was another expansion for Munchkin Warhammer 40,000: Savagery and Sorcery (http://munchkin.game/products/games/munchkin-warhammer-40000/savagery-and-sorcery/)! This 112-card set adds the rich history of the Space Wolves and Thousand Sons to your Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 (http://munchkin.game/products/games/munchkin-warhammer-40000/) game. This expansion complements the first expansion, Faith and Firepower (http://munchkin.game/products/games/munchkin-warhammer-40000/munchkin-warhammer-40000-faith-and-firepower/)*– you can add either or both of them to the base Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 set. Savagery and Sorcery will be out in the summer of 2019.

Right now, we're shipping Munchkin 9*– Jurassic Snark (http://munchkin.game/products/games/munchkin/munchkin-9-jurassic-snark/) to stores .*.*. some of you may already have it! Steve loves dinosaurs and all things prehistoric, and that shows in this new 112-card expansion, lovingly drawn by John Kovalic. (Hey, did you know John's running a Kickstarter to fund a new*Dork Tower (http://dorktower.com) collection? Check it out! (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tao-of-igor/the-tao-of-igor-a-new-dork-tower-collection)) We coupled this with reprints of a lot of Munchkin games and expansions to make sure all the friendly local game stores (http://storefinder.sjgames.com), including Warehouse 23 (http://www.warehouse23.com/products?search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558398552&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399365&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399410&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399580&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399591&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399597&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399598&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399601&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399602&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399603&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399604&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399605&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399606&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399609&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399610&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399611&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399612&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399613&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399614&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399615&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399623&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399631&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399632&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399633&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399640&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399645&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399647&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399682&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399683&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399686&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399687&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399693&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=558399694), have enough stock for the holiday season, so no little munchkins wake up to empty stockings on Christmas morning.

Coming in November, we have the next set of boosters for the Munchkin Collectible Card Game (http://munchkinccg.game). Grave Danger (http://munchkinccg.game/products/season1/grave-danger-booster/) adds all the undead you could ever hope not to meet! We're also shipping the Munchkin Party Pack (http://munchkin.game/products/games/munchkin/munchkin-party-pack/), which we've talked about a fair bit already this month. And we're expecting to launch a Kickstarter for Munchkin Steampunk: Girl Genius (http://munchkin.game/products/games/munchkin-steampunk/munchkin-steampunk-girl-genius/)*– keep an eye on our Twitter (http://twitter.com/SJGames) and Facebook (http://facebook.com/sjgames) for the most timely notifications, or follow us on Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/profile/sjgames) to get notified immediately when a new campaign goes live.

See you turkeys next month!
