August 24th, 2016: Munchkin Comics #20 In Stores Now!

Munchkin #20 Munchkin #20

You can't feel gloomy and mixed up while reading Munchkin comics! Well, actually, you can if the comic issue is based on Munchkin Gloom and Moop's Monster Mashup. What a coincidence, those are the games featured in Munchkin #20 from BOOM! Studios.

The first tale, "Tomb of Gloom," finds our adventurous duo of Spyke and Flower learning the grim history of Abbey Seadey from the mysterious monk who runs it. What happened to the previous explorers of the tomb? Why does the monk know so much? And why didn't Spyke just find a hotel? Only a couple of these questions will be answered. "Moop's Mini Misadventure" is the first comic appearance of Moop, the titular star of Moop's Monster Mashup! We also find out why being a wizard's assistant is not a glamorous job, and when to stop springing puns on people. (The answer is never. There are never too many puns.) 

In the back, you'll find the first part of an interview with the designers of Munchkin Gloom, which continues online. And don't forget about the promo code, located at the end of each issue, for an exclusive BOOM! Studios Munchkin bookmark. The Official Munchkin Bookmark of Moop's Spring Special bounces off the page this month! 

Pick up issue #20 at your friendly local comic shop, or from Warehouse 23, today!

August 22nd, 2016: Munchkin Collectible Card Game Update

Hello everyone! We've been pretty quiet about the Munchkin Collectible Card Game since the announcement at the GAMA Trade Show in March. That's because we've been hard at work, playtesting the cards and all of the possible combinations. There's more balancing involved in a CCG than in a trapeze act. We've had Eric Lang and Kevin Wilson, the designers, on speed dial, and we could not have gotten this far without their design and their help with the development of the game. Thanks, guys!
Of course, CCGs have a lot of moving parts. While all of the testing has been going on, we've also been busy naming the cards and coming up with hundreds of art specs for our talented artists! Those specs are bearing fruit and we've got some truly amazing art coming in that I can't wait to share with you in a future post.
One of the most important steps in developing a game is the writing of the official rulebook. This is one of the most important pieces of our game and we're striving to get it just right. If you can't understand how to play the game, and I'm not leaning over your shoulder to tell you what you're doing wrong, then we've failed the game and we've failed our players. So, no pressure there!
All of adds up to one thing: Progress! Everything is coming together nicely and we plan to have the game ready for you all to play at Board Game Geek Con this November!
Of course, once we've got this done, we don't get to rest . . . on to the expansions!

Please find rules for Light Artillery Drones posted at this link. We hope you take them out for a spin, and then come back here and let us know how they performed, by posting on the forums.

What's that? There are no counters for them? Well, for now please make do with whatever you have. Who knows what the future might hold?!

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.
