April 24th, 2017: Preorder Lar DeSouza's Super Munchkin Guest Artist Edition Today!

Super Munchkin GAE

Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! Wait, it's Super Munchkin Guest Artist Edition, with art from Lar DeSouza! How did I mix up a boardgame, a bird, and a plane? I need to get my eyes checked. 

Aside from being an awesome dude, Lar DeSouza is known for his stellar art, particularly comics, mashups, and pinups. Who better to take on the world of tights, powers, and capes? I had the honor of meeting Lar during Gen Con 2016, at Munchkin Tavern. In addition to being an incredible artist, he's one of the nicest people I've ever met. We interviewed Lar on the Daily Illuminator, and asked him about his artistic process, as well as the work he does for MS charities. He may be drawing heroes, but he's doing the real heroics for charity!

Our Guest Artist Edition series is a limited run, celebrating the 15th anniversary of Munchkin, so make sure to preorder Super Munchkin Guest Artist Edition today to make sure you get a copy! Just ask your friendly local game store, or check out Warehouse 23. Get yours before it's up, up, and away!

April 17th, 2017: Shakespeare Update

Just a quick note to tell you the status of the various pieces.

  • Kill-O-Meter, Drama Dice, Staged Demo: Completed and sent to print!
  • Pawns (Shakespearean versions of Spyke and Flower), Blank Card Pack: designing packaging, should go to print very soon
  • Shakespeare Deluxe, Limited Engagement: mostly done with some pieces still being laid out; we hope these will go to print by the end of this week but it may be next week
  • Colouring Book: will go to print at the same time Limited Engagement does, since it's one of those components
  • Bookmark of Firsties: will go to print soon but probably not immediately, since its turnaround time is much shorter

I'll be out of the office most if not all of next week, doing the bulk of the work for a crosstown move into my new house, so Devin will be offering a peek under the hood of the Collectible Card Game. See y'all in May!

January 1st, 2015: Munchkin Silver Piece Rule Archive

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.

Ogre News

April 6th, 2017: Does BPC Degrade In Water?

The Ogre map is a pretty harsh place, what with the craters, ridges and barren terrain. Just what you might expect from a nuclear battlefield. But not all battlefields are so desolate; small rivers and tributaries may cross the landscape, offering a small respite from the bleak terrain.

They also really can jam up an armor column!

We are pleased to announce Ogre Stream Overlays, a W23 exclusive mini-supplement designed to bring stream terrain to Ogre Sixth Edition. It contains rules for stream overlays, a number of overlays themselves, suggestions for their use in standard Ogre scenarios, and even a training scenario: Hammer & Sword. Owners of Ogre Designer's Edition will benefit as well, as many of the overlays are much longer than those found in ODE. And best of all, it's free! Click over to Warehouse 23 to download your copy today.

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.
