August 22, 2016: Announcements For December

Which green creature do you prefer: Goblins or Martians?

We know it's a hard decision. That's why you don't have to make it. Whichever you choose, we've got something you'll love coming out this holiday season. One choice features an obnoxious number of Goblins; the other comes with invasive levels of Martians. Look for both new releases at your friendly local game store around the time you should be buying people holiday gifts!

Speaking of which, here's a friendly reminder: All your friends love Goblins and Martians. That's right. We've just solved all your gift-buying woes.Munchkin Pathfinder: Truly Gobnoxious

Why be a little excessive when you can be .*.*. Truly Gobnoxious?*

This booster pack has ten goblin monster cards, just to make sure your game features true hordes*of enemies. You know, the way all good fantasy adventures do. There's also a handful of cards thrown in to help you fight the goblins, because winning is also important when you're trying to live out a good fantasy adventure. *

Munchkin Pathfinder: Truly Gobnoxious shuffles right into Munchkin Pathfinder *or classic fantasy Munchkin.

The art is by Shane White, a comic and game artist known in part for Pathfinder: Goblins!,*Bad Karma,*and Comic Book Tattoo.

White also illustrated*Munchkin Pathfinder: Guest Artist Edition,*due out in October. Combine the two for an epic quest in path-finding and goblin-fighting!

GURPS Mars Attacks

It could have been the end of the world .*.*. *

Saucers descended from the skies, releasing unstoppable waves of robots, giant insects, and blaster-wielding soldiers. The armies of earth didn't stand a chance.*

All would have been lost were it not for the scientists of the Novas Vira, who saw the invasion coming. These men and women turned to science to create weapons and inventions powerful enough to defend earth from the Martians.*

It's a war of technology, where bigger and better vehicles, guns, and weapons win the day. Play as either the invaders or the human defenders. There are even rules for Martian space ships!

GURPS Mars Attacks is a GURPS Fourth Edition book. It requires the two-book GURPS Basic Set to play.

We've got some fun, some strange, and some cape-wearing new releases coming this November! Look for these products at your friendly local game store as we draw nearer to the Thanksgiving season.

Munchkin Standard Card Sleeves: Spyke

Spyked and dangerous.

Don't you want Spyke to protect your poker-sized cards? Now he can! Guard your cards*from animal attacks and scratches with this high-quality accessory. Each package comes with 50 sleeves.*

But that's not all Spyke can do. Armed with his Bloody Chainsaw of Dismemberment, a sword, a hammer, and a decidedly evil grin, he's sure to make your foes quiver when they see the card sleeves you've chosen.

They'll fit on any standard-sized cards &ndash; including cards for the upcoming Munchkin Collectible Card Game!

Munchkin Standard Card Sleeves: Flower

A Flower by any other name would be .*.*. just as terrifying.

These sleeves, also for poker-sized cards, feature an image of Flower armed with her shield, a spear, and her signature Unnatural Axe. The art is from the original*Munchkin*illustrator, John Kovalic.

Each package comes with 50 sleeves. Buy a mixture of Flower's and Spyke's sleeves to outfit any of your future Munchkin Collectible Card Game decks.

Discworld Roleplaying Game

The world is round. And also flat.

Sir Terry Pratchett created an odd and wonderful world in his 40-plus novels, and he called it the Disc. This complete roleplaying game helps players create brand new adventures on the Disc. You can visit settings from Pratchett's novels*and meet characters like Rincewind the incompetent wizard, Granny Weatherwax the witch (known to trolls as She Who Must Be Avoided), Captain Carrot the six-foot dwarf, Archchancellor Ridcully, Susan Sto Helit (granddaughter of Death), and a cast of strange and unique characters. Now players can step into this fantastic setting and have adventures of their own.*

This is the second edition of the Discworld Roleplaying Game. It contains everything from the first edition as well as everything from the supplement GURPS Discworld Also.

12 Days of Munchkin Coloring Book

On the first day of Christmas, my chainsaw slew for me .*.*.*

This adult coloring book chronicles the adventures of Spyke during the 12 days of Christmas. And guess what he's up to during that season of warmth and good cheer? That's right! Killing things and collecting treasure.

It's got 28 pages of art by Len Peralta, and all of it's ready to color. Plus each coloring book comes with 10 new Munchkin cards that shuffle right into any game. You may have plenty of Net Troll cards by now, but what about the Comment Troll?*

Batman: The Animated Series Dice Game

Things are getting dice-y, Batman!*

This November, Steve Jackson Games and Cryptozoic Entertainment, in partnership with DC Comics, are publishing a new game based on Batman: The Animated Series.

Players take on the roles of the most nefarious villains in Gotham City in this newest member of the One More Roll&trade; line of press-your-luck dice games, joining Dino Hunt Dice, Trophy Buck, and Zombie Dice. In Batman: The Animated Series Dice Game, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, The Riddler, and The Joker are attempting bank heists all across Gotham City. Assume the role of one of these evil-doers and use your unique power to foil the World's Greatest Detective and escape with the most loot!

In addition to complete GURPS stats, the monsters come with tactics, variants, and other devious ideas. (For example, not every entity here needs to be an adversary .*.*.) This supplement also offers meta-traits and three new monster prefixes, for more versatility. Fight holy rock trolls, flying octopus blooms, furious doppelgangers, and other threats.

Do you ever ask yourself, "What's wrong with this world?"

We do, too. And usually, we come up with a whole lot of very different answers. Some of them relate to the 2016 American presidential election or to the current state of pop music. But one of the answers we come up with is this: "There just aren't enough people figuratively stabbing each other in the back en masse on the same day all across the seven continents and calling it the '#PlayMunchkin Event'!"

And seeing as we are a company that makes games, there really isn't much we can do about the presidential election or terrible generic "folk" music, but we can*do something about that third thing we mentioned.

That's why this Saturday, August 13, almost 200 friendly local game stores across the country will host their own #PlayMunchkin Events!*

To help you find the closest one, here's a list of the participating stores. Each one will host its own Munchkin event, and each one has #PlayMunchkin Event-exclusive promo cards and bookmarks to give out to fans. And while you're playing, don't forget to post a picture to Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram of your*Munchkin*game with the #PlayMunchkin hashtag for a chance to win cool prizes!*

You really should go. You know you've been saying you need to get out more.

August 8, 2016: Can New Art Keep These Zombies Fresh? Figuratively, Yes



Nothing says "versatile" like "zombies."

They can be genuinely scary. They can be funny. They can be romantic. They can be cute and cuddly. They can be tools of capitalism or tools of critical thought. They can be a cereal flavor or a nightmare, a dessert topping or a floor wax. They can be anything &ndash; which is why approximately 50% of modern movies are about them.

It's this adaptable quality of zombies that made it so easy to choose Munchkin Zombies as one of our Guest Artist Edition games. And it's why we're so excited now to show you more of guest artist Greg Hyland's zombified art!



Where John Kovalic's original zombie illustrations are more cartoon-like and family-friendly, Greg Hyland's new Munchkin Zombies Guest Artist Edition &ndash; due out in October &ndash; is a bit more graphic and loose. Both versions are great in very different ways &ndash; like, say,*Night of the Living Dead and Army of Darkness,*or peanut butter ice cream and mountain pine-scented hand soap.

Just look at the Ghoulbladder cards. John's drawing is hilarious, but there's not a gut or a glob of blood in sight. Greg's zombie, on the other hand, has an open chest cavity. Mm-mm, good.

Other cards from Hyland are reinterpretations, like his Slacker or his Tax Man.*



This is why we're doing these Guest Artist Editions*&ndash;*these cards lend themselves to interpretation. You can see Greg's fresh take on the other 164 cards when the game rolls out in October.*

Hyland is the creator of Lethargic Lad, a comic strip (and now webcomic) that has been running since the late 1980s. He has worked with us before; he did the original Munchkin Fu, as well as Burn in Hell*and Chez Guevara.*

So when Halloween season rolls around, remember that this game will be in stores, and that it's probably a better use of your money than yet more zombie movie tickets.*
