Once More Unto The Brain, Dear Friends
The undead munchkins return once more in this 56-card expansion for Munchkin Zombies, with a bunch of new ways to get those pesky survivors and eat their braaaaaaaiiiins! Take on a new Power, Solo, and show the other zombies on the block who's boss. Pick up the Spare Parts and Bowling Gloves and take on Your Ex-Roommate! Get Your Second Wind so you can defeat the formidable Surgeon General, but make sure you don't get hit with Curse: Dead Heat!
This is an expansion for Munchkin Zombies. It is not a stand-alone game.

If you've kept up with the news -- and we bet you have! -- you already know that the overhauled version of Warehouse 23 to include e23 is due Very Soon Now.
If you missed the news, then here's the announcement from last week. Soon, yes, soon you shall be able to explore the new Warehouse 23 . . . if you dare. (And . . . um . . . we really hope you dare.)

Munchkin Czar Andrew Hackard (that's me!) has been named an Industry Insider Guest of Honor for Gen Con 2014! I'll be on several panels over the course of the show and generally trying to be an honorable guest. When I know my panel schedule, we'll be sure to post it here.
I'm also hosting another night at the Munchkin Tavern, so I hope to see everyone there having a good time!
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.
It's April, which of course means it's time to make a fool of yourself in the service of Munchkin bonuses! During any game of Munchkin or Munchkin Quest, when you are in combat, you may balance the 2014 Silver Piece on your nose. For every three seconds the coin stays in place, your side gets a +2 combat bonus, to a maximum bonus of +10. (You should probably have someone besides you keeping time.) NOTE: No cheating! If you use any sort of adhesive to keep the Silver Piece on your nose, go back to Level 1 and lose all your cards in play AND in your hand.
Special rule: On April 1, the bonus is +4 for every three seconds! The maximum is +20 on April 1.
Keep the Silver Piece when you're done; if you actually do this, you have already suffered enough.
You may only use one coin rule per game unless a specific rule says otherwise.
Please see the full announcement here.
Happy designing and testing! We're pretty sure you'll amaze us with what you come up with!

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.
Who said tentacles should only be green?
Have you actually met Cthulhu?
The +6 Bag o' Munchkin Zombies comes with six zombie Munchkin pawns and two new cards for Munchkin Zombies.
Get them both from Warehouse 23.
