In our ongoing effort to improve our websites, we're going to have some scheduled maintenance time in early December.
On Thursday December 4, warehouse23.com will be down. You won't be able to buy anything during that time, unfortunately, but fear not! Warehouse 23 will return.
On Friday December 5, warehouse 23.com, sjgames.com, and worldofmunchkin.com will all be either down or intermittent throughout the day. They should be back online by about 6 or 7 pm Central Time that day, though.
And certainly, by December 6, everything should be back up.
Thank you for your patience while we perform this maintenance. We really appreciate it.

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.)

Lots of you have asked us to revisit Star Munchkin, and so we are!
We've been playtesting this around Austin for a month or so (thanks to all the playtesters for keeping this quiet!) and John's been working hard on the art for this 112-card expansion. With luck, we'll have real card mockups to show off at our spring conventions next year.
I had a blast going back to one of our first Munchkin games and playing in that sandbox again with another decade-plus of science fiction to draw from. I can't wait to find out what y'all think of the result!
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 the middle of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, and here's an appropriately dreary rule!
In any game of Munchkin or Munchkin Quest, you may use the 2014 Silver Piece to die, according to the Death rules in your game. (Sometimes, a little death is healthy!) Give the 2014 Silver Piece to the oldest player at the table (other than yourself), or at least the player who is willing to admit to being the oldest.
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.
