July 17, 2017: Munchkin Musings: July 2017

Red Pen of Doom

Short entry because I'm writing this on July 4 (Happy Independence Day!) while I'm waiting for a load of laundry to finish so I can pack for a trip.

We have now seen physical samples of almost everything from the Munchkin Shakespeare Kickstarter, and it looks very much like we'll be shipping the rewards to backers on time, with almost everything appearing in stores throughout the last few months of this year. Thanks to everyone who has been sending great feedback as we've posted more information – we can't wait to show it to y'all!

Our big news last month was Munchkin Spell Skool, which is showing up in Walgreens stores across the country. If your store doesn't have it on the shelf, ask; they may have a copy in the storeroom they'd be willing to sell you (and it's one less game they have to stock later!). This was a really fun game to work on and Katie Cook's art elevates it to the next level. I wrote some Designer's Notes and a quick guide to mixing Spell Skool with Munchkin Oz Guest Artist Edition – go check them out!

We've been working on several cool things for the Munchkin Tavern at Gen Con 50 – we hope you'll join us there if you're at the show!

A lot of what I did in June was make sure the shelves at your Friendly Local Game Store would be well-stocked for the holidays. We have several reprints coming later this year, including TWO printings of Munchkin and Munchkin Deluxe – because we had to be sure we had enough. We've got some cool new stuff lined up as well . . . and some of the new things will be holiday surprises, so keep watching the Daily Illuminator and Munchkin News for the latest information! Or follow us on social media: we're active on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and we even have a YouTube channel where I put in the occasional appearance. (There are lots of other good videos if you're sick of my mug, and I wouldn't blame you a bit.)

Today is also the last day of our Munchkin Special Delivery Kickstarter campaign (ending at noon, Austin time). The original printing sold out so fast that we just had to print some more, so back the Kickstarter if you are interested in getting a great deal on a lot of Munchkin games, expansions, boosters, and accessories. 

See you in August . . . when I have THREE conventions planned. Oh, dear . . .
