May 19, 2014 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUSTIN, Texas (May 19, 2014) – Steve Jackson Games and Alderac Entertainment Group have partnered to create Munchkin Loot Letter. Loot Letter, a game that combines elements of Alderac's Love Letter and SJ Games' Munchkin series, is due out later this year. Loot Letter will include:
"We are thrilled to join Love Letter with Munchkin for this crazy and fun release," said AEG Owner John Zinser. "We hope that Munchkin players will enjoy the elegant design by Seiji Kanai mixed with their unique form of dungeon crawling!"
"Love Letter is one of the best games to come out in the last couple of years, and it's been a lot of fun working with AEG on a way to Munchkinify it for all the gamers who have no use for love," said Munchkin Brand Manager Andrew Hackard. Upon being poked with a sharp object, he added, "...or who have already found true love, I guess."
Munchkin Loot Letter is based on the award-winning world-wide hits Love Letter, by Alderac Entertainment Group, and Munchkin, by Steve Jackson Games. Loot Letter's 16 cards provide hours of fun for kids and adults while they scramble to grab all the loot and leave their friends in the dust. Loot Letter also comes with an exclusive Munchkin carrying bag and an exclusive Munchkin game card.
