July 18, 2017: Announcements For November

November is a time to give thanks, and we're thankful for awesome games! Lots of new Ogre and Munchkin hitting your local game store, as well as reprints of classic originals!

Ogre Miniatures Set 1Ogre Miniatures Set 1

Why should the Ogres have all the fun? Now defend the Command Post with 3-D units as well!

That's right – Ogre Sixth Edition and Ogre Designer's Edition can officially become miniatures games. These quality units, sized to fit the current generation of Ogre products, provide the most immersive experience yet. Customize your game like never before with these unpainted miniatures:

  • Combine forces in red – two Ogres, a Mark III and a Mark V.
  • Paneuropean defenders in blue – Heavy Tanks, Missile Tanks, GEVs, Howitzers, Infantry (with bases), and a Command Post.

Munchkin WonderlandMunchkin Wonderland

Wander Wonderland! Collect whimsical treasure! Fight the Red Queen!

Munchkin Wonderland is for two to six players, ages 6 and up, and plays in about 1 hour – so the whole family can join in! Plus, you don't have to know how to play classic Munchkin to enjoy this game; the rules are a little simpler, making it a great introduction to Munchkin for kids.

The game transports players to the iconic world of Lewis Carroll's Wonderland novels. Move around the illustrated game board. When you land on a monster like the Jabberwock or the Red Queen, beat it with a roll of the dice and Treasure cards like Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast, the Vorpal Blade, or Stolen Tarts! Maybe you'll even get help from the Caterpillar or Dormouse. When the deck of Treasure cards runs out, whoever has the most loot wins!

Munchkin Shakespeare Spykespeare PawnsMunchkin Shakespeare: Spykespeare Pawns

Wherefore art thou, pawns?

These six pawns show Spyke in full Shakespearean regalia. Use them to track your Level in Munchkin Shakespeare Deluxe or some other Munchkin game with a board . . . or to mark your place in any game. For more munchkinly ways to use them, look inside.

Also look for the Munchkin Shakespeare Pawns: Flowerspeare!

Anything Spyke can do . . .

Flower gets her Shakesperean makeover with a set of six pawns, perfect for tracking your level. These pawns are ready to deliver poetic justice to opposing munchkins in any Munchkin game, or any game that uses pawns.

Six vibrant colors to complement the Spykespeare pawns! 



The original classic gets a 34th printing!

Munchkin is the mega-hit card game about dungeon adventure . . . with none of that stupid roleplaying stuff. You and your friends compete to kill monsters and grab magic items. And what magic items! Don the Horny Helmet and the Boots of Butt-Kicking. Wield the Staff of Napalm . . . or maybe the Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment. Start by slaughtering the Potted Plant and the Drooling Slime, and work your way up to the Plutonium Dragon . . .

And it's illustrated by John Kovalic!

Munchkin DeluxeMunchkin Deluxe

Classic Munchkin action, with more bells and whistles!

Munchkin Deluxe takes the classic fun of Munchkin and adds cardboard standies and a board to track your level! (This is a popular addition; we're on the 17th printing of our first Deluxe set!). All the classic monsters, like the Net Troll and Gazebo, are ready to fight, but you'll be fine as long as you have weapons like Magic Missile and Rat on a Stick.

Munchkin 4 Need for SteedMunchkin 4 – The Need For Steed

Feel the need . . . The Need for Steed!

Another classic, entering its 14th printing! Mount up with 112 more cards for killing monsters, stealing treasure, and backstabbing your fellow players. This expansion introduces Steeds, the trusty mounts of legend. But this is Munchkin, so these Steeds include not just the Dragon and the Tiger, but the Giant Mutant Gerbil (drawn by guest artist Shaenon K. Garrity of Skin Horse), the Chicken, and Big Joe, who might be a Steed or might be a Hireling . . . it's hard to tell.

Hireling? Yes, indeed, The Need for Steed has lots and lots of Hirelings! Add these valuable characters to your retinue, use their special abilities, and sacrifice them to save your own skin! 

Find these games, expansions, and more at your local game store this November!
