May 3, 2018: Upcoming Events Near You: Munchkin CCG and Munchkin in May and June


Hello and welcome to our new monthly feature, Upcoming Events Near You! This regular Daily Illuminator feature will let you know what local game-store events to expect in the coming month or two so that you can pencil them in on your calendar.

May and June will be exciting months for the Munchkin Collectible Card Game. In May, we've got a dozen stores running Sealed & Dealed Events to offer players a new booster-licious format. Later in the month, the stores below will run a pre-release event for our first expansion, the Desolation of Blarg! Check to see if there's a location near you! Then, at the end of May and throughout June, the Regional level of our 2018 Championship Tournament Series goes off around the country. 

And if classic Munchkin is more your speed, 2nd & Charles stores will run Munchkin Magical Mess Learn-To-Play Events on May 19!

Here are the specifics, by date:

May 11 to 13: Munchkin Collectible Card Game Sealed & Dealed Events

Want to play the Munchkin CCG in a sealed format? Check out the Sealed & Dealed events at the stores below! Each of these events will feature a 6-pack sealed tournament with promo cards - including the brand new, never-before-seen Potted Plant! So go get your Potted Plants and some new booster packs. Oh, and these events are new-player friendly, so be sure to let your friends know they can come learn to play.

June 8-10: The Desolation of Blarg Release Events

Nearly 200 stores ran excellent Munchkin Collectible Card Game Day of Wreckoning events in April, and now it's time to gear up for the next big play event. This one is tied to the release of The Desolation of Blarg, our very first expansion. Expect to see stores running draft events, sealed events, or casual-play events with cards featuring this new set. Each store should also have some brand new, never-before-seen promo cards for you!

Sign up for the Spotlight, our newsletter, to be sure that we'll notify you when the full list of local game stores running this event goes up.
