Munchkin Treasure Hunt has been out for a week now; if you're holding off on making the decision to buy because you're not sure what the game is like, Father Geek has you covered. He posted a comprehensive review of Treasure Hunt a little while back; it tells you everything you need to know about the game, and also gives a summary of opinions on the game from a variety of different people.
Go read it, and then head to Toys"R"Us to get your copy!

Munchkin is a great game, and we're really excited about how many people like it. We noticed a while back that there was an audience that didn't have a Munchkin game all their own, though: kids! So what did we do? We made a game for kids.
Munchkin Treasure Hunt isn't just another Munchkin core set; it's a whole new board game in which kids (or grown-ups; you know y'all love this stuff too) move their characters around a board fighting monsters and taking their treasure! Monster cards make the monsters tougher, and you can use your Treasure cards to defeat the monsters and get even more treasure. But you'll want to hang on to those Treasures; each one has a Gold value, and the player with the most Gold at the end of the game is the winner!
You can find Munchkin Treasure Hunt in Toys'R'Us stores right now. There are Toys'R'Us stores everywhere, so it shouldn't be hard for kids all over the country to get their hands on a copy, but if you don't live close enough to get there, you can order from toysrus.com, too. Go get your loot!

Meta-rule for all of 2014: if you are playing Munchkin Apocalypse, or a blended game that includes Apocalypse cards, you may use the 2014 Silver Piece to Open or Close a Seal, your choice. Give the Silver Piece to the next player to successfully Run Away from a monster. As usual in Apocalypse, this rule cannot be used to reverse the opening of the Seventh Seal.
You may use the 2014 Silver Piece in any game of Munchkin or Munchkin Quest to make yourself Undead for one combat, unless you are fighting for the win. This means that you can add Undead monsters to your side of the fight, but it also means that any player who has cards or abilities usable against Undead can use them against you. After the combat, win or lose, give the Silver Piece to the lowest-Level player (other than yourself, if you are the lowest).
You may only use one Munchkin coin per game unless a rule says otherwise. This one does not.
We're pleased to announce that, as part of a stretch goal on the OGRE Designer's Edition Kickstarter, we now have a German translation available for download at Warehouse 23. It includes the rulebook, scenario book, and reference sheet, and is ready for print and play!
As always, we're blown away by your support of OGRE, and we're looking forward to hearing about epic OGRE battles from our friends across the Atlantic.
The Imperial Navy announced today that the private cruiser Sargon, formerly the private transport of the deceased Archduke Dulinor, will be returned to Archduchess Isis, his daughter and heir. Dulinor was killed in 1116 while shuttling to the surface of Capital in one of Sargon's small craft, which exploded while entering far orbit. The cruiser has been in Imperial custody since the day of the assassination, under guard at an undisclosed Imperial Naval facility, but was recently released back to the Archduke's family, as the Naval investigators feels no further evidence in the crime will be forthcoming. Archduchess Isis is not in system at the present, but her office issued a press release announcing that a crew will be provided to return the vessel to Illelish, but gave no further details.
