Working with Paizo to make Munchkin Pathfinder has been one of our favorite partnerships . . . and now there's a deluxe edition coming out! It's the same great game! It includes a board and standees to help you track your Level, and of course all your favorite monsters from Golarion . . . including more Goblins than any sane person could want. If you've been holding off buying Munchkin Pathfinder, you can't beat the value in Munchkin Pathfinder Deluxe!
It's shipping from our main warehouse now, so you'll be able to buy it at your Friendly Local Game Store very, very soon.

Hello, loyal Munchkin fanatics! Team Munchkin is going to be at a couple of local conventions next weekend, and we'd love to see you at one of them if you're able to attend!
The REALLY local con is Board Game Bash, now in its fourth year of bringing board gaming to Austin. We've been part of BGB since it started, and we're happy to support them again this year!
We're also going to have a booth at San Antonio Comic Con, in beautiful downtown San Antonio (be sure to grab a margarita on the Riverwalk!). I'm going to be there Saturday to sign stuff and play some games -- San Antonio is my home town, so it's always nice to get back for a day or two! (And this show will be a good test for PAX South, coming up in January . . .)
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.
July is the seventh month, so here's a rule in honor of lucky number seven. At any time, in any combat in any Munchkin game (including Munchkin Quest), you may flip the Silver Piece to try to increase your bonus. After the first flip, each matching flip in a row is worth an extra +2, to a max of +10 if you can flip the same side six times. If you do successfully flip the same side six times, you can choose to go double or nothing on the seventh flip, gaining either +20 or no bonus at all. You may use a Loaded Die or Cheat! card to change one flip to the side you prefer. (Your opponents may not use a Reloaded Die to frustrate your attempt.)
If you flip the opposite side on the very first try, you may keep the Silver Piece and try again in a later combat; otherwise, you must give the Silver Piece to another player of your choice. You do not receive any bonus if you don't relinquish the coin!
You may only use one coin rule per game unless a specific rule says otherwise.
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.
