March 28th, 2015: Crowdfunding Focus: Lord Of The Fries

Crowdfunding Focus

I enjoy Lord of the Fries very much. I even had the privilege of publishing it once, while Cheapass Games was in its Relatively Dimly Lit Ages. But now Cheapass is gloriously resurgent and James is Kickstarting a new edition of Lord of the Fries, and you should go support it right now. You've got until April 3, which will be here before you know it, so you should go support it RIGHT NOW.

March 23rd, 2015: GAMA Announcements!

We made several announcements during the GAMA Trade Show last week. If you weren't paying attention to the Internet, here's what you missed:

  • Our pals at USAopoly have three more Munchkin games coming out this year!
    • Munchkin Adventure Time 2 – It's a Dungeon Crawl! will be in stores next month. It's a 100-card expansion (including 12 new Dungeons!) retailing at US$19.95.
    • Munchkin Zombies: The Walking Dead is a 56-card expansion based on Robert Kirkman's hit comic book, featuring great Charlie Adlard artwork. You will need Munchkin Zombies to play. The Walking Dead will be in stores late this summer, retailing at US$10.95.
    • There will be a Munchkin The Nightmare Before Christmas core game! We aren't quite ready to announce when it will be available; price will be US$24.95.
  • We will be reprinting Munchkin Dragons this August. Both it and Star Munchkin: Space Ships will be packaged in a blister attached to a backing card the same size as our tuckbox expansions, so retailers can hang these boosters right on the same peg. Price will still be US$4.95.
  • Munchkin Steampunk Deluxe will be released in a launch kit this July, with three copies of the game, 72 promo cards (24 each of three different cards), and three posters for stores to hang in their shops. The game by itself will ship in September, so the launch kit is the only way to have the game when it is initially released. Steampunk Deluxe will be US$29.95 and the launch kit will be US$89.95.
  • Munchkin Stocking Stuffers will be getting a full release later this year.
  • Munchkin Gloom and Munchkin Smash Up are still on track for release this year. It's a bit too soon to narrow it down further than that.
  • We're teaming up with Renegade Game Studios on a set of Munchkin trading cards! These are actual trading cards, just like sports cards and the like (but without the nasty chewing gum), and there will be some special or even unique chase cards scattered through the set.

Hard as this is to believe, we still haven't announced everything coming out this year! We've got some more love for Star Munchkin and some support for Munchkin Steampunk coming. We've got some new Munchkin expansions and accessories I'm really looking forward to. And a big part of what I did at the show was talk with some people about our Munchkin plans for 2016 and beyond . . . plans that I think define the term "ambitious." It's an exciting time to be a Munchkin fan!

Traveller News Service

February 16th, 2013: Capital/Core 047-1130

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.
