December 16, 2016: New Releases For November

November is the month of giving thanks, and we gave a lot of thanks for all these new releases. Batman made his dramatic entrance, and a couple of old-school series added new content. All that, plus new Munchkin accessories galore, as well as a holiday-themed Munchkin coloring book and a limited edition of one of our most popular games! Who could ask for more? Look for these new releases at your friendly local game store, just in time for Christmas!

Munchkin Pathfinder: Guest Artist EditionMunchkin Pathfinder Guest Artist Edition

The humor of Munchkin and the fantasy of Pathfinder join forces again, with an all-new look!

Munchkin Pathfinder Guest Artist Edition gives players the same goblin-bashing, dragon-slaying fun of the original, now illustrated by Shane White, whose art has been featured in the Pathfinder: Goblins! comic series. Iconic classes such as the Witch meet the Red Mantis Assassin and other factions to take on fan-favorite monsters such as the Whispering Tyrant and Lamashtu. Arm yourself, kill hordes of goblins, and grab all the treasure!

Contains 10 new monster cards and five goblin-related treasures with all-new Shane White (Munchkin Pathfinder Guest Artist Edition) illustrations!

This is an expansion for Munchkin Pathfinder. It is not a stand-alone game. This is NOT a collectible or randomized set. Every Munchkin Pathfinder: Truly Gobnoxious pack is the same as every other.

As a bonus, there's a special rule for anyone playing with this mat: Once per game, except during combat, discard a Goblin from your hand to take as many Treasures as it is worth!
