September 26, 2018: Munchkin Musings: September 2018

Hi!Fall has . . . fallen . . . which doesn't mean much in Austin except that most of our days are only in the 90s instead of the 100s. This month, we have a couple of updates and our year-end shopping reminder.

Munchkin Starfinder (in both streamlined base game and overstuffed I Want It All! versions) is on store shelves now. As we announced a few days ago, demand was higher than we anticipated and we expect these games to sell through quickly. If you want to play Munchkin Starfinder at this year's holiday gatherings and you don't already have it, let your Friendly Local Game Store know now, or you'll be waiting until the spring. If you want the I Want It All! set, definitely don't wait, as we don't currently plan to reprint that one.

Munchkin: Red Dragon Inn is also on store shelves now. This mini-expansion includes monsters, magical loot, and a whole lot of drinks, stealthily pilfered (licensed) from SlugFest's hit game The Red Dragon Inn. They returned the favor by bringing Spyke and Flower into The Red Dragon Inn for some Munchkin-style mayhem. Pick up both sets today!

Over on the Munchkin Collectible Card Game side, we've been enjoying the reports of delighted fans of the new expansion, Fashion Furious. Give your games a sense of style by adding some Fashion Furious cards to the mix! If you want variety, look for the Munchkin Collectible Card Game Phat Pack on your store shelves very soon (many of you will already have it available). This pack of five boosters gives you 60 random cards usable with any Munchkin CCG deck.

Looking to the rest of 2018 . . .

Next month, Munchkin goes prehistoric with Munchkin 9 – Jurassic Snark. This 112-card expansion has cavepeople, mammoths, and all the dinosaurs you could possibly want. And it mixes right into Munchkin, Moop's Monster Mashup, or Munchkin Shakespeare Deluxe ("Forsooth, my king, a T-Rex chews my flesh!"). You do not need earlier expansions to enjoy Munchkin 9, but of course you can use them if you have them!

In November, Munchkin Collectible Card Game fans will be in Grave Danger with the newest expansion. Do you like undead? Do you like stupid jokes about the undead? Either way, you're in luck!

For folks who don't like the undead, we're also offering the Munchkin Party Pack, which has a 15-card mini-expansion for any Munchkin game plus 15 Munchkin promo cards you can give to your favorite guests (or keep for yourself). We'll have a lot more information about this, including our own guide for running a Munchkin party, later this year.

In December, those of you who backed the Munchkin Unicorns and Friends Kickstarter should look for a holiday surprise in your mailboxes. If you put yourself on the naughty list by skipping the Kickstarter, you'll have another chance to buy that mashup set in 2019. Watch here for details! (NOTE: You may also preorder if you missed out on the Kickstarter! –PR)

We've got a lot of cool stuff coming in 2019 . . . some you already know about, but some hasn't been announced yet. We've got three more months of Munchkin Musings this year, so be ready for us to reveal more news in about a month!
