April 23, 2021: Reprints For August
August brings some long-awaited reprints of our most popular games and expansions. Close out the summer with some hot games!
They are all around us. Secret conspiracies are everywhere.
In Illuminati, you increase your wealth and power to take over the world until only YOU reign supreme.
Now this classic game of conspiracy and world conquest has been updated to include current events and up-to-date references! Illuminati is for two to six players and contains 110 cards with new card back designs. It features new art created by Lar deSouza, known for his 2008 Shuster Award-winning online comic Least I Could Do.
As a winner of the Origins Award for Best Science Fiction Boardgame, Illuminati is one of the all-time greats. Now that it has been modernized for the 21st century, you'll wonder whether it's really only a game as you scheme your way to world domination!
Stir Things Up!
Admit it. You really like to combine all your Munchkin sets . . . the stupider things get, the better. Playing Star Munchkin Cthulhu Booty Zombies is really weird and really fun . . . but it can also slow things down.
There are a lot of ways we COULD have addressed this problem. But this is Munchkin, so the solution we chose was to create a lot of really overpowered new cards. Why be a Super Munchkin when you can be an Ultra Munchkin? If a Half-Breed isn't enough, you can be a 1/3-Breed. And if a single Cheat! card doesn't do it for you, you can Cheat With Both Hands!
There are also a lot more monster enhancers . . . and ITEM enhancers, too. There are several new low-level monsters to help you get those easy kills. Until somebody takes that Sock Puppet and turns it into the Ultra-Rare Extremely Sneaky Sock Puppet With Extra Cheese . . .
It's the World of Dorkness!
The munchkins are now vampires . . . and werewolves . . . and changelings. Bash through the haunted house and slay the monsters. The OTHER monsters. You can't slay your fellow munchkins, but you can curse them, send foes at them, and take their stuff. Of course . . .
This is a stand-alone game, which (of course) can be combined with other Munchkin games. And it's illustrated by John Kovalic. OF COURSE. See Igor, Gilly, and all the other Dork Tower characters in their munchkin-vampire finery . . .
Laugh it up.
Clowns bring joy and laughter to people everywhere with their happy antics. For many circus-goers, the clowns are the best part of the show.
They've never met these clowns.
Wear your Big Red Shoes and Big Red Nose for big bonuses! Fight Poundfoolish with Pound Cake. If you fail, that's it . . . you're dead!
Take the scenic route.
When you need a short detour from the business of killing monsters and betraying your friends, try Munchkin Side Quests! This 30-card expansion can be added to any of your Munchkin games, and it's illustrated by Ian McGinty, who has previously drawn for the Munchkin Collectible Card Game and Munchkin Magical Mess. Get secret in-game goals that you can complete to cash in for a reward AND, just maybe, surprise everyone with a new way to win the game!
