November 24, 2016: Grab Boxes And Messenger Grab Bags Now In W23

Do you like your loot with a side of surprises? Then our Holiday Grab Boxes and Game-In-A-Bag deals on Warehouse 23 are just what you're looking for! Trust me, a side of surprise tastes better than a side of that canned cranberry sauce .*.*.

Holiday Grab Boxes come in two flavors &ndash; Mostly Munchkin, and Surprise Me! You may have guessed that the first option, clearly, contains mostly Munchkin merch, whereas the second has a variety of items from the SJ Games catalog. So pick your favored flavor!

But why buy random stuff? Because it's a steal! The Holiday Grab Boxes cost $40, and come with over $80 of loot! Plus, boxes of both varieties may contain an item signed by Steve Jackson! He's got a big stack of stuff signed and ready to insert into random boxes. Maybe you'll get lucky! Either way, you'll receive tons of value from the deal, and it's a great way to get gifts for friends and family.

For those of the more mobile variety, our Game-In-A-Bag promotion is also happening now! When you purchase a Munchkin Messenger Bag on Warehouse 23, we'll throw in a random Munchkin game, expansion, and accessory, plus extra swag. You buy the bag, and we fill it up for you! Show off your Munchkin fandom, and carry your games in style. Or carry books in it, if you're boring. Either way, it's a great deal!

Both of these promotions are happening now on Warehouse 23, and end on December 15 or while supplies last. Make sure to get them soon, before time runs out!

November 22, 2016: Recognizing The Munchkin Collectible Card Game Team

Developing the Munchkin Collectible Card Game has been an eye-opening experience. I'm not going to get into how the sausage is made in this post, but I do want to recognize the people who have put so much hard work into this project.

Eric Lang and Kevin Wilson, over the course of more than a year and a half, have crafted an incredibly fun game unlike anything I've played before. Working with them has been a fun and enlightening process.

We have had the good luck to work with several artists and colorists who have made this game look phenomenal. I plan to do another post highlighting each of them individually, but for now, I'd like to thank (in no particular order) John Kovalic, Katie Cook, Ian McGinty, Mike Lucas, Lar DeSouza, Tom Siddell, Shane White, Stephanie Chan, Fred Stresing, Meg Casey, and Lee Simpson.

I haven't been alone in the development of the game here on the SJ Games side, either*&ndash;*it's simply too big for one person. Darryll Silva helped me make the cards funny for CCG fans and often found the "whoa, too far" line by leaping across it. Balancing a collectible card game is no easy task, but Darryll, along with an awful lot of playtesters, helped make it happen.

Shelli Galey has done the work of hundreds &ndash; or at least a couple of people &ndash; wrangling our very talented artists and amazing colorists. This is an unfortunately short thanks for what has been a huge part of this process.

Sabrina Gonzales has been in a knock-down drag-out fight with the layout of the cards for so long now that we're not sure who is winning. But the cards look great and she's responsible.

Sam Mitschke was a late addition to the team but has, through sheer force of will, gotten this tanker of a project back on the right path. Thanks to him, we are on track to finish this first set and start working on expansions!

Andrew Hackard has always been ready with advice, a punny card title, or at least a very meaningful shrug.

Phil Reed is the one who made this entire thing happen in the first place. Once this game launches and you all realize how much lighter your wallets are, blame this guy.

Of course, I can't leave out Steve Jackson. His advice has helped shape this into the exciting and fun game that it is today.

We're still tweaking the first set, but we do see light at the end of the tunnel. That light is the oncoming freight train that is the next set .*.*. but after everything we've been through and learned this time, we'll be ready for it.

November 21, 2016: Give The Gift Of Guest Artist Editions

We're closing in on the end of 2016, and it's been a whirlwind year for our Munchkin Guest Artist Edition line.*To celebrate Munchkin's 15th anniversary, we've released a whopping 10 limitededition games, with a few more on the way. That means our Guest Artist Edition series offers something new for fans of any theme. And what better time to introduce someone to Munchkin than the holidays!*

Having everyone home for Thanksgiving is the perfect time to get potential victims &ndash; I mean friends and family &ndash; to play a game! The Guest Artist Edition line is a great start, because we have a theme to match whatever they're into. For horror and monster fans, there's Munchkin Zombies Guest Artist Edition and Munchkin Cthulhu Guest Artist Edition. You're playing as zombies and cultists, but you are heroes! Maybe monsters are just misunderstood? Or perhaps it just feels good to be bad?

If you have a fan of action and sci-fi in your life, maybe Munchkin Fu Guest Artist Edition, Munchkin Apocalypse Guest Artist Edition, or Star Munchkin Guest Artist Edition is more up their alley. Martial-arts, laser-battling, disaster-dodging, B-movie antics are on tap for these high-flying games.

And for a hilarious new twist on the classics, check out Munchkin Oz Guest Artist Edition and Munchkin Legends Guest Artist Edition. Classic myths, legends, and storybook heroes throw down for loot. Fortunately, there are no bonus points for canon, so go ahead and play the Tin Woodsman and a Hero Sandwich together. We won't mind.

No matter who's around your table this holiday season, the Guest Artist Edition line is sure to please. You can find many of these titles at your friendly local game store today! But remember, they're limited editions that won't be available forever. Check these off your gift list soon!*

November 20, 2016: Crowdfunding Focus: Wizards Of The Tabletop



Before I worked in the boardgame industry, games were a big part of my life. But despite being an avid gamer, I couldn't put a face to even my favorite designers. That's just not fair! These creators provided hours of enjoyment. I mean, I know what Steven Spielberg looks like, and I know what Neil Gaiman looks like, so why were these tabletop designers so enigmatic?

Well, times have changed. With thousands of games releasing a year, tabletop and boardgame designers have become minor celebrities in our geeky circles. Today's Crowdfunding Focus isn't a game, but a book that canonizes members of the boardgame community in picture. Wizards of the Tabletop, by Douglas Morse, is a collage of these creators, including our very own Steve Jackson. It captures moments in time and, more important, gives a face to the legion of awesome people we share our hobby with. (Douglas Morse also helped create The Next Great American Game, a documentary that Steve also played a part in.)

The campaign ends in about three weeks, so back Wizards of Tabletop soon, to get a candid look at some amazingly cool people in our hobby.*

November 19, 2016: Munchkin Musings: November 2016

It can't be November already; why, it seems like just a week or two ago, it was Halloween! .*.*. Oh.

November at Munchkin HQ is often crunch time, and this year is no different. We're working further ahead than usual, but that is no reason to rest on our achievements*&ndash; the more we get done in 2016, the better situated we are to start 2017 on the right foot. This is especially critical because Chinese New Year is particularly early in 2017, so we have a very short window to work with our printers before they close for several weeks.

Of course, as every year, we've had a couple of last-minute opportunities arise, so it's good that we're so far ahead of the schedule .*.*. it makes our crunch time a little less, um, crunchy. (No, we can't talk about them yet, but we'll certainly holler when the time is right!)

This November is busy for me, personally, as well; I'm out of town for more than half the month, going to California for work meetings and a close friend's wedding and then heading straight to Dallas for BGGcon. I expect that there will be a lot of late-night hotel-room work this month so I can hit my deadlines and stay on top of things back in Austin. I get back just in time for the long Thanksgiving weekend, and then it's only three weeks before we close for the winter break.

We have lots of cool stuff still to announce this year; keep watching the Daily Illuminator and Munchkin News, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook, for the latest rumors and scuttlebutt from SJ Games and Munchkin HQ. If you'll be at BGG, we'll see you there; otherwise, I'll be back in December for a 2016 wrap-up edition of Munchkin Musings!

Do you hear those sirens in the distance? That's the sound of a raid .*.*. a*Yellow Brick Raid!

In fact, it's Munchkin Oz 2 &ndash; Yellow Brick Raid, the first expansion to the Munchkin game set somewhere over the rainbow! Loot the Emerald City even more thoroughly than before with 56 new cards inspired by the 14 Oz books by L. Frank Baum.

There are 34 Doors and 22 Treasures, with plenty of monsters (including a handful of high-level ones), some Allies and Curses, and lots of treasure. Now, you can fight the Googly-Goo or The Lizard of Oz in the Lemonade Rain and Popcorn Snow using a Can of Brains or the*Magic Apron.

It's a great way to experience all the characters, locations, and quirks of the Oz books, whether you're a fan*&ndash;**or you've always meant to read them but never quite got around to it.

The art by original Munchkin illustrator John Kovalic is a ton of fun (as usual), so it'll go great with either Kovalic's Munchkin Oz or Katie Cook's Munchkin Oz Guest Artist Edition.

Yellow Brick Raid will be out early next year. So watch this blog &ndash; we'll let you know when it's in stores! (If you buy a copy when it comes out, the sirens will stop.)

The ground shakes. There's a distant rumble, like thunder cresting the hill .*.*. except this is not natural. It's a deadly, AI-controlled tank &ndash; an Ogre. And now it's coming to Kickstarter, in miniature form!


Hot on the heels of our recent Ogre Sixth Edition announcements, Steve Jackson Games is proud to present the*Ogre Miniatures Set 1*Kickstarter!*This long-awaited collection includes all the units from Ogre Sixth Edition rendered in three of our glorious dimensions. We've taken the classic line of miniatures that veteran players loved, improved them, and rendered them in plastic. As is, these highly detailed sculpts will make your Ogre game stand out on the tabletop, but they also make a great canvas to show off your mini-painting skills.

Included with the set are more than 30 miniatures representing Infantry, Heavy Tanks, Missile Tanks, GEVs, Howitzers, and a Command Post in Paneuropean blue, and the infamous Ogre Mark III and Mark V in Combine red. You'll get enough miniatures to play a full game of Ogre Sixth Edition, for only $30. The models come unassembled on the sprue, perfect for hobbyists, but still simple to put together for anyone who wants to deck out their tabletop experience. If you're the kind of commander who wants it all, we have various add-ons, like a copy of Ogre Sixth Edition, the upcoming expansion Ogre Reinforcements, different dice, and even posters. And you know we're going to have lots of stretch goals! Alternate colors, more miniatures in the box, and even rules to play the miniatures on their own are just some of the things you can unlock throughout the campaign.

The campaign runs until November 30. Of course,*Ogre Miniatures Set 1 will be coming to your friendly local retailer if it funds, but stores can also back at our Retailer Pledge Level at a special price! So whether you're a fan or a store owner, there's no reason to miss out on this Kickstarter campaign. Unless you're actually an AI-controlled super tank reading this. But that's just crazy .*.*.

November 3, 2016: A Dragon's Hoard, At Walmart



You know what they say: Where there's gold, there be dragons.

And at Walmart right now, there is, in fact, both gold and dragons!

Inside marked copies of the gold-foil, Walmart-exclusive edition of Munchkin (pictured at left), we've stuffed the mini-booster Munchkin Dragons: Four More. You'll know the dragons are inside by a handy sticker on the box that says so.*

It's a curious quartet of weird wyrms! Rules for mixing them into your game are here, but feel free not to read them and simply embrace the fiery chaos.

Here's a teaser: The pack includes the Level 4 Gummy Wyrm, which neutralizes your Footgear when it oozes all over the floor. There's also Poof, the other magic dragon, who's stronger if you're a Wizard. You'll have to get the game to find out about the other two!



And if you like this pack, look for*Munchkin Dragons and*Munchkin Dragon's Trike at your friendly local game store.

Then you can have a fire-lizard extravaganza!*

November 2, 2016: New Releases For October

If you're afraid of spelling, cats that never stop smiling, zombies, or counting your murder victims, then October was a month of appealingly spooky, scary releases from Steve Jackson Games!

If none of those things scare you, we have to say: Your bravery knows no bounds. At the very least, we thought you'd be afraid of counting your murder victims. Nobody wants to face that number. *

Read on, if you dare, for a recap of our October releases!Munchkin Zombies Guest Artist Edition

I say, good sir, I certainly would not object to a repast consisting primarily of your cerebrum.

It's new art for a beloved, undead Munchkin game! In keeping with that spooky October spirit, guest artist Greg Hyland's zombies are graphic; they don't shy away from the blood'n'guts.

Just as in the original game, you are a zombie. You equip yourself with An Arm and a Leg, a Bowling Trophy on your head, and Mousetraps on your feet. You might be Fast, Smart, Stealthy, Tough, or Rotting; you could be a Voodoo Zombie, an Atomic Zombie, or a Plague Zombie. *

So say it with me like a Smart zombie eating an organic farmer: Mmm, artisan cerebrum. *Munchkin Wonderland

Off with their heads!

This Munchkin-inspired, Wonderland-themed game is suitable for the whole family, even the youngsters! It's like Munchkin, but with streamlined rules and less backstabbing.*

You'll fight classic monsters and megalomaniacal queens from Lewis Carroll's Wonderland novels. You'll encounter characters and collect items from the stories. Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast, for example, might help you fight the Red Queen. Meanwhile, that always-smiling terror feline, the Cheshire Cat, might help your opponent fight the Jabberwock!*

Whoever has the most gold at the end of the game wins! This lighthearted romp is available exclusively on Amazon.*Munchkin #22

Every Flower has its .*.*. fists.

In the latest edition of our Munchkin comic, Flower journeys across wastelands and pleasant suburban lawns in search of her kidnapped kung-fu master. But does he want to be found? Maybe not.

Then, a group of survivors hole up in a bowling alley to stay safe from the zombie hordes. But when the zombies get inside, it turns out .*.*. the survivors are still safe. These zombies have unusual tastes.

Find out more when you buy the comic!

Munchkin Alphabet Activity Kit*and*Munchkin Alphabet Coloring Book*

A is for alphabet! B is for book!

At hobby stores, you can now buy an adult coloring book that contains brand new line drawings from John Kovalic, as well as alphabet verses written by Steve Jackson.

And only at Books-a-Million stores, you can get that coloring book as part of a kit that also contains bookmarks*and a Munchkin poster, line drawn and ready-to-color, and the colored pencils to go with it!

Whichever option you go for, you'll never again forget that A is for Adventure, and B is for Bar.Munchkin Kill-o-Meter Guest Artist Edition

One! One dead monster! Two! Two dead monsters!

During a Munchkin game, a lot of things affect your power level. Gear, one-shots, Go Up A Level cards, and &ndash; of course &ndash; killing things.

This Kill-o-Meter helps you keep track of all that .*.*. in style. With illustrations from comic artist Ian McGinty, who also drew a recent Munchkin Guest Artist Edition, this Kill-o-Meter packs a visual punch.*

Visit your friendly local game store or Warehouse 23 (or Amazon for Wonderland) and expand your collection today!

November 1, 2016: Munchkin Wonderland Hops Onto Amazon

Munchkin has a history of invading stories and causing trouble. From Oz to Grimm Tidings, Spyke and Flower can't seem to keep their heads out of books. It was only a matter of time until they made it to the zaniest literary realm &ndash; Lewis Carroll's Wonderland novels!

The colorful world of Munchkin Wonderland is brought to life by the master himself, John Kovalic. The game is a feast for the eyes, with vibrant and fanciful illustrations based around the crazy locales and wacky characters from the novels. The board is larger than normal, because this game is based on Munchkin Treasure Hunt. This makes it a great game for introducing kids to the world of Munchkin, and equally fun for adults who just want to bash some monsters and grab treasure! You'll interact with classic Wonderland characters like the Jabberwock, Cheshire Cat, Caterpillar, and many more on your journey around the land, collecting the best Treasure to win.

So don't be late to the party! Get Munchkin Wonderland today, exclusively on Amazon.

November 5, 2016: Extra Life Game Marathon For Charity

Do you like helping kids? Then this weekend, support a great charity &ndash;*Extra Life! Gamers around the country are playing 24-hour streams to raise money for Children's Miracle Network, which helps kids dealing with terrible stuff and hospital visits that no child should have to endure. It's a great cause, and all you have to do to help is watch gamers play games, and donate!

Many streams are taking place on Twitch over this weekend. You can also check out their donation pages to make a contribution. Anything helps, even a buck, though more is always welcome. If you'd like, it's easy to participate, as well! You play games with your friends all the time, so why not start your own Extra Life page (like my friends and I do each year, shameless plug) and see what you can raise? Your friendly local game store may be running something as well, so check with the store to see if you can be involved!

If you are participating in Extra Life this weekend, share a link to your stream with us on Twitter and we'll send out a signal boost! If you aren't, give some support to those streamers and fundraisers, because playing games for 24 hours straight is harder than it looks. Good luck, fellow Extra Lifers, and remember*&ndash;*it's for the kids!
