Munchkin Shakespeare

Since its release in 2017, Munchkin Shakespeare has been one of our more popular Munchkin games, with multiple printings and a host of expansions and accessories. Because it's now such a successful game, it's fun to look back on its origins. Not only was it the first Munchkin game on Kickstarter, but its crowd-sourced roots go all the way back to a certain JoCo Cruise, where Andrew and SJ brainstormed ideas for what was to be an expansion.  Andrew wrote about the experience, and why it was integral in us choosing to crowdfund the game. 

What started as simply an idea for an expansion grew into a full deluxe game, plus expansions, plus bonus items and promos. It truly was a passion project for Andrew in particular, and once the Shakespearean tap had been opened it was impossible to close! So in this, the fourth year of Munchkin Shakespeare, we must say that while brevity may be the soul of wit, we're glad that the Munchkin Shakespeare line has been anything but brief!
