February 17, 2017: Munchkin Shakespeare Project Update

Munchkin Shakespeare

Hark! Lend me your ears and I'll tell a tale of bardic campaigning – the tale of Munchkin Shakespeare! We've surpassed our initial goal by leaps and bounds, and unlocked a ton of extras to boot, and we're on our way to even more!

If you don't know the backstory, Andrew Hackard explained the origins of Munchkin Shakespeare on Medium. Suffice it to say it's a Munchkin game based on the writing of William Shakespeare, with some ideas crowdsourced from our fans! We've got a lot of awesome loot, and even more surprises to come, happening over on Kickstarter. What started out as a Munchkin Christmas Lite-sized set and Kickstarter Exclusive Expansion has grown into a core-size box, and a core-size expansion box, with tons of accessories!

Backers at the "Shakespearean Player" level or higher are now going to get more than 200 cards, plus bookmarks, a metal coin (something we haven't made in a long time), and even a Kill-O-Meter. Backers at the "I Want It All!" level are getting even more, like additional dice, Flowerspeare pawns, and an extra Kill-O-Meter, among other things! And yes, you read that correctly, we are bringing back a version of the highly requested Flower pawns! We've even introduced blank Dungeon cards, something we haven't done before. 

This is a campaign of firsts, and we're not through yet! We have more cards unlocking soon, and at $180k, we will unlock Spykespeare pawns as an add-on, with more secrets to be revealed. We're also sharing some sneak peeks at art and cards for the set, so keep an eye on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as the campaign updates, for more on that.

The campaign closes March 10, so make sure you don't miss your chance to get stuff like the Kickstarter Exclusive Expansion. Once it leaves the stage, there is no encore!
