May 9, 2016: Munchkin Musings: May 2016

Welcome to the first installment of a new monthly feature on the Daily Illuminator: Munchkin Musings! In this space, I'll talk about what's going on -- at least as much as I'm allowed! -- and give you a peek into some things you may have missed.

First of all, I want to thank everyone who has been spreading the word about the Munchkin Guest Artist Editions. We're pleased with how the first couple have been received and we're very excited to get even more of them into your hands. Keep watching the Guest Artist Editions page for more news as we're cleared to release it . . . there's a lot y'all still don't know about!

At the end of April, I was pleased to be a returning guest on the Geek Apocalypse podcast. Host Steven Hesse and I talked at considerable length about lots of things, including the Munchkin Tavern, Munchkin: Marvel Edition, Munchkin's 15th anniversary, and even a couple of things not related to Munchkin at all. You can listen to it right here (note: the link leads to an autoplay audio file).

We've had several great Munchkin releases already this year! Ian McGinty's Munchkin Guest Artist Edition and Len Peralta's Star Munchkin Guest Artist Edition headline the year, but we've also shipped Munchkin Puppies, Munchkin Meeples, the first Munchkin Playmat (Spyke Gets Suckered), the non-Deluxe version of Munchkin Steampunk, and Munchkin Hipsters even went mainstream.

Definitely don't forget about the monthly Munchkin comic book from BOOM! Studios -- it's got stories from creative writers such as Sam Sykes, Tom Siddell, Will Hindmarch, and even some people you already know from Munchkin, such as Len Peralta, John Kovalic, and -- um -- me. There are some crazy issues coming up later this year!

This month, we're going to be shipping out John Kovalic's Munchkin Fu Guest Artist Edition -- yeah, we found a way to get John involved in the fun! -- Munchkin Knights, and Munchkin 6.5 -- Terrible Tombs. We've got more great stuff coming out later this spring, and things will explode this summer and fall. Bookmark the New Releases page so you're up to date on all the Munchkin news!

Thanks again to all the great Munchkin fans out there who keep us working hard at the best job ever. See you next month!

-- Andrew Hackard
