Some of you are certainly aware, but most of you are probably not: on International TableTop Day, we chose ten game stores around the country and sent them each five pizzas, on us, for their patrons to enjoy. How did we choose them? I'm glad you asked.
We querried our Men in Black. Andreas, our MIB Control, sent them a survey and got a huge number of responses from enthusiastic MIBs saying great things about their local stores. We used that information to put together a list. This likely won't be the last time we do something like this; if you're interested in being in the running for this kind of thing, the best way to ensure that you are is to make sure you have MIBs at your store. In addition to this kind of thing, MIBs can demo our games for your store and run all sorts of events.

We recently made a bunch of updates to our Munchkin promo card page. Go check it out!
(To answer one question: Yes, we do plan to reprint some of the promos that are currently out of print. In fact, we've sent a few of them to print in the past few weeks, and we'll look at the list as we continue working on new sets and reprints throughout the year. We know some folks have been having a hard time getting our OOP promos, so we're hoping they can take advantage of a second chance.)
We have decided not to release a 2015 Munchkin Silver Piece. The Silver Pieces you already have are still usable, however; each coin can use the rule matching the current month and the year of the coin. You can find all the previous rules on the Silver Piece rule archive.
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.
