July 24, 2009: Anniversary of Munchkin
This month marks eight years since Munchkin was first shipped from our warehouse. The first print run was 6,000 copies; the second run was only five months later. The first expansion was just three months after that.
We knew that Munchkin was fun. We knew John Kovalic's art was good. And we knew SJ's humor was wicked. We didn't know how these factors would combine to create something greater than the sum of its parts.
Now, eight years, eight new boxed sets, 16 expansions, and one boardgame later, we're still marveling at the power of the Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment-wielding maniac.
