Muertoons is a really, really cool show for kids about five girls living in a Dia de los Muertos-inspired world. It's got a striking visual style, and focuses on themes of friendship and cooperation. And guess what? We're making a game based on it!
Muertoons Mix-Up, due out in 2015, is a card game based on the show, with lots of great Muertoons art, and gameplay that we think you'll like. We're really excited to get this out to the fans, and help get this show the attention it deserves.
Check out our press release for more info!

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.)

Somehow, the news item intended for THIS week posted LAST week and no one noticed. Whoops.
Randy and I leave for PAX Australia today (not last week), and the convention is this coming weekend (not the weekend that just ended).
Everything else is true, however, especially the part about planning to have a great time. If you're going to be at the show, we'll see you there! (And if you thought you were just AT the show, quit living in my alternate timeline.)
(P.S. If you're in the Austin area this week, be sure to check out our playtesting group on Facebook -- Devin's going to be running more playtests over the next little while and we want your input!)
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.
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.
