November 20, 2017: Wrapping Up PAX U, BGG.Con, And More!

The SJ Games staff has had a whirlwind of a weekend! Not only did we attend two conventions (PAX Unplugged and BGG.con), but Phil was at ChiTAG, and demoed the Munchkin Collectible Card Game at local Chicago game stores!


The inaugural PAX Unplugged took place in Philadelphia, and we had a plethora of huge events! The Munchcathlon was packed with 64 players vying to be the top munchkin in the land, while the Zombie Dice tournament ended up with tons of brains being eaten. We crowned a new pirate king in Port Royal, and Munchkin Shakespeare took center stage for its own tournament! Command Posts fell during our Ogre Sixth Edition tournament. Plus, we had multiple, packed Munchkin Collectible Card Game events, like our Learn to Play and the mock draft on Sunday, not to mention round-the-clock demos taking place at the booth. We hope everyone who wanted to had a chance to check out the Munchkin CCG (and make sure you preorder the holiday special over on Warehouse 23!). Fans of*Triplanetary had the opportunity to demo the classic*game ahead of the impending Kickstarter!*


We even debuted our brand new Pinny Arcade collector pins, and I have to say, they are impressive! These collectible pins feature Spyke for Munchkin, and a Zombie Dice for, well, Zombie Dice. We sold a ton, but*a little birdie told me that we may not have sold out, so keep an eye at future PAX events, and maybe even Warehouse 23.*


Our BGG.con crew held it down in Dallas with Super Kitty Bug Slap, which almost sold out of our advance copies! Folks were slapping tables left and right at the convention, and some lucky attendees even went home with free copies, thanks to the generous folks at BoardGameGeek, who added copies to a few of the prize bundles. If you haven't been to BGG.con, you're missing out; it's five straight days of gaming, and is one of my personal favorite shows of the year. Check it out, if you have the chance next time!


Of course, Phil gave our Chicago fans a personal tour of the Munchkin CCG with his demo nights at local game stores! A very special thanks to The Gaming Goat and Maximum Distractions, who hosted these awesome events. We're truly lucky to have some great local game stores ready to support the Munchkin CCG when it comes out next February.*

We had an absolute blast this weekend, and now we're happy to wind down for the holiday break. Oh, wait*-*we're running Kickstarters for Ogre Miniatures Set 2 and Triplanetary. Guess it's back to the gaming grindstone. Well, let's get to it!*

Here's the story, in Katie's own words: "Callie thinks that in the grand scheme of the worlds at large, she's nothing special. With the unexpected addition of friendship and adventure into her life, she's about to find out that she was very, very wrong."

Ogre Miniatures Set 2, the sequel to our highly successful Ogre Miniatures Set 1 campaign, is live on Kickstarter now! This new set expands your Ogre options with seven all-new units.*


The defenders are bolstered by the fast support of the Light Tank and Light G.E.V., while getting some heavy artillery with the Superheavy Tank and Mobile Howitzer. Infantry is also included, and has a faster way around the battlefield: the G.E.V. Transport. But all of these are ants in comparison to the two big miniatures in Set 2: the Fencer and the Ogre Mk. IV. The Fencer comes with two turrets, giving you the choice of building it in an A or B configuration. The Ogre Mark IV is another step in the Ogre evolution, faster than most Ogres and armed with long-reaching missiles.

Due to the high demand for multiple sets, and our constant quest to get fans more minis for the money, our $75 reward level will include three full sets of miniatures, in red attackers/blue defenders, reverse colors, and hunter green, which comes out to over 150 miniatures! Of course, if you're building a really big army, we have options for even more .*.*. so check out the Kickstarter and muster your forces.

And for those looking for painting inspiration, we talked to Ben Williams, our in-house painter, about the amazing paint jobs he's done; we showed off some of his models on #SJGamesLive .*.*. give it a look. Ogre Miniatures Set 1 was also featured on GTM's Happy Li'l Minis show, for even more painting fun! And if you're interested in other Ogre content, check out our most recent Ogrezine additions*-*three new articles, to be exact!*

Note that this is a short campaign, ending November 27, so make sure you back soon!*

Since you loved the miniatures in our first Ogre minis Kickstarter so much, we decided to launch another campaign to add even more to your maniacal fun! The Ogre Miniatures Set 2*gives you more armor units to defeat the Ogre: the Light Tank, Superheavy Tank, Light G.E.V., G.E.V. Transport, and Mobile Howitzer, as well as one Fencer cybertank with an extra Fencer-B turret. Of course, you'll get a new Ogre to fight as well*-*the Ogre Mk. IV. Brace yourself, because this will be launched on Kickstarter on November 13! Follow us there to get an alert when it goes live.*

If you didn't have the chance to back the first set on Kickstarter, you can purchase the Ogre Miniatures Set 1 at your local game store*when it ships to retailers later this year.

The public playtest for the 2018 edition of Illuminati is coming to a close on November 1, and we've received a lot of great feedback. If you want to take part, you only have a few more days to do it, so print it out and have an Illuminati test weekend!

We wanted to take a moment to answer a couple of the more common questions fans have had during the playtest. With questions about the size of cards, many fans were wondering about the compatibility of their existing expansions. Those expansions will not be compatible with the newest edition. However, that isn't to say we won't reprint the expansions to be compatible with the new edition. It's not a guarantee, but if the game does well enough, it's something we would definitely consider.*

Speaking of expansions, new expansions aren't out of the question; as a matter of fact, they are a definite possibility. But again, we'll have to see how game does with our updates to contemporize it a bit. So no guarantees, but it's definitely on the table for consideration.*

Make sure to leave your feedback to our playtest on our forum before November 1! The secret masters are listening.*

This stand-alone game contains 168 cards, Pact &ndash; I mean packed &ndash; with characters, monsters, and loot from the hot new Starfinder RPG. Not only is this the first space-themed Munchkin game since Star Munchkin, it's full of firsts for us.

Munchkin Starfinder also features the art of Howard Tayler, in his first full Munchkin game. Known for the Schlock Mercenary webcomic and Planet Mercenary RPG, Howard has drawn a few guest cards for other Munchkin sets, but will take the spotlight during this project.*

The game includes Ships to fly, as well as the Swarm, a growing mass of enemies and one of the big baddies of the Starfinder universe! Look for even more monsters and treasure in the 56-card expansion. Plus, if you can't get enough Starfinder, we have a ton of accessories and more expansions you can unlock via stretch goals! We've already unlocked add-ons for a Star Field board, Kill-O-Meter, and Hero Pack, with more on the way if we hit further stretch goals!

We expect to get the game to backers in May 2018, and will be hitting store shelves a few months after. This is a shorter campaign, lasting only 10*days,*back it soon, before it leaves orbit!*

1. Don't panic! Take everything out of the box. Admire it. Read the books. When things get too intense, take a break and punch out the figures or skip to one of the steps below for a while.
2. Get a feel for the rules by playing the solo adventure in Pyramid #3/104. This issue also includes the "Heroic Background Generator" for inspiration while creating characters, and Pyramid editor Steven Marsh's thoughts on how to prepare yourself for the game.
3. Delve into Pyramid #3/106, which provides ready-to-go equipment kits to reduce the shopping workload, a follow-up to that solo adventure I just mentioned, and designer's notes offering insight into why the game is the way it is.
4. If finding players is a problem, try our Gamer Finder (until we add a "Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game" box, just check the "GURPS" box).
5. For advice from fellow gamers on setup, rules, cool character builds, and how to find players, look no further than the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game Forum. I hang out there, too .*.*. so you might be able to get help directly from the author!

October 24, 2017: Munchkin Booty Just Keeps On Bootin'

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*in the deluxe Guest Artist Edition format, with illustrations by Tom Siddell (Gunnerkrigg Court). 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 (2009), and then a mini-expansion, Fish & Ships (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.
