July 17, 2012: Munchkin Conan And Illuminati Expansions Now Shipping

What is the best way to have fun? Play more new games, of course! This month we started shipping Munchkin Conan and put two Illuminati-related expansions back in print -- just in time for the game's 30th anniversary!

Munchkin Conan

What is good in life?

To kill the monsters and take their stuff!

Conan -- challenging the world, slaying monsters, defeating armies, laughing in the face of death. He steals the treasure, spends it, and steals more. Conan is THE Barbarian.

Robert E. Howard's epic hero gets the full Munchkin treatment in Munchkin Conan, the new core set written by Steve Jackson and illustrated by John Kovalic. Play a Cimmerian Warrior or a Stygian Wizard! Wield the Sword of the Phoenix and poison your foes with Black Lotus! Slay Thoth-Amon's minions, Pict raiders, and abominable monsters, and hear the lamentations of their women!

168 cards, one six-sided die, and a rulesheet. Stock #4411, UPC 837654320983. $24.95.

Back In Print

Illuminati Y2K (Reprint)

The Y2K bug failed to knock civilization back to the stone age, but it did inspire this expansion for Illuminati -- adding another layer of weirdness to the classic game of conspiracy. Add the Alien Abductors, Cattle Mutilators, Gamers, and 73 other groups to your power structure. Twenty-six Special cards and two Illuminati groups -- Shangri-La and Church of the SubGenius -- further the frenzy.

Illuminati Y2K adds new ways to beef up your Illuminati group and its puppets. Use High Fashion to channel megabucks to Discordia, or Computer Dating Services to add extra cards to the Network's hand. Play Red Scare, May Day, or Political Correctness for additional income or pump up Resistance, but only for one Alignment. Add your favorite organization, urban legend, or personality with the six blank Group cards. Plus: Ninjas!

This is not a stand-alone game; you'll need Illuminati to play.

110 cards. Stock #1325, UPC 837654320853. $17.95.

Bavarian Fire Drill (Reprint)

Bavarian Fire Drill is the second expansion for Illuminati. It adds 110 new cards illustrated (mostly) by the redoubtable Dan Smith.

Control new and terrifying groups like Bloggers, Reality Shows, and Intelligent Design. Will you use Embedded Reporters and FEMA to destroy the Webcams, or will you be defeated by Bird Flu and Bobbleheads? Fans of the mega-hit INWO will recall the Deprogrammers and Science Alarmists, as well as more of the best groups from the best-selling conspiracy CCG.

BFD also introduces a new kind of card: Artifacts! Some are magical, some are technological, some are just . . . strange. But they all give their owners an unfair advantage in the struggle for world domination. Hitler's Brain, the Spear of Longinus, the Screaming Meme -- and these are just the beginning.

Bavarian Fire Drill. You know what it means, but your cover requires you to look innocent . . .

110 cards in a tuckbox. Stock #1394, UPC 837654321591. $17.95.
