July 11, 2018: Steve Talks Munchkin Unicorns

Unicorn and Friends

There I was, minding my own business, when I thought of a cow joke.* Before I could even write it down, I thought of two more. By the time I got those three written down, another was banging at the rickety doors of my attention span. What got me onto a cow kick? I have no idea. But I eventually wrote down more than a dozen stupid cow jokes as Munchkin cards and sent them to Andrew.**

Fast forward a couple of months. I asked Andrew whether he'd been able to do anything with the cows. He said "We're putting them in with the unicorns."


If you unpack his statement, it would go something like "We figured out that we can do less work AND bring the gamer's per-card price down if we combine two or three mini-packs into one set, so the Cows are going in with the Unicorns and a bunch of undead." In any case, that was how I found out about this set – I checked on my cows and that's where they had gone.

Now it's the Munchkin Unicorns and Friends Kickstarter, which is already going great guns. If you want a big batch of silly new Munchkin cards, please, go support. If you do NOT want more silly new Munchkin cards . . . I don't know what to say. I fear you are lost to me!

* Okay, it could be argued that cow jokes ARE business.

** Not that he had asked for them or anything. I just sent them.

*** There is no ***.

**** But there is a **** and this is it: Cow jokes are following me around. At LibertyCon, someone suggested an (arguably) cow joke. I dutifully made note. Maybe it will show up as part of this set, maybe later. But yes, I listen to fan submissions . . . . if they're ba-a-a-ad enough.*****

***** Now we're into the sheep jokes.
