April 6, 2018: Munchkin Collectible Card Game Starter Shortage!
We launched the new Munchkin Collectible Card Game in February, and the response has been phenomenal! During the launch month, the game accounted for over 50% of our sales, and since that time, we've only run into one significant issue: We're out of starters! We thought we had enough to get us through a few months, but it was soon apparent that we dramatically under-printed all three starters.
Fortunately, the starter sets have not yet completely vanished at retail, so there's still a chance to grab them and get into the game without paying inflated after-market prices. As we've noted before, the first run of the starters (the copies currently available) include a bonus booster pack, at no extra charge!
If your favorite local game store is out of starters, you can always DIY a starting set with this handy article posted on the munchkinccg.game website. That should tide you and your friends over . . . at least until the starters return to stores in May or June. Remember, though, that the next wave of starters does not include the bonus booster. If you see one of the first printing sets, snatch it up before it's too late!
