May 18, 2015: Double Dragons!

We've got a double dose of Dragons coming up later this year. Also check out our new packaging for Munchkin boosters -- now you can find them pegged with the larger tuckbox expansions!

Munchkin Dragons Munchkin Dragons (reprint)

Here There Be Dragons!

Dragons are fearsome! Dragons are cool! Dragons have LOTS of treasure for munchkins to loot! Munchkin Dragons has 15 new cards. The treasures are wondrous indeed . . . but first, you've got some dragons to slay. Good luck.

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

Munchkin Dragons Trike Munchkin Dragon's Trike

Now You've Done It!

You stirred up the nest and now Dragons are everywhere! Big ones, tiny ones, even undead ones. Munchkin Dragon's Trike has 15 new cards. Kill enough Dragons and you might even be able to start your own treasure hoard . . .

May 11, 2015: A New Look For Munchkin Boosters

Comparison Shot

We've done some research and talked to our retailer friends, and what we've learned is that the finseal packs that we usually put Munchkin boosters in aren't as easy to display on the shelf as they could be. So we went back to the drawing board on packaging for them, and now we're going to start releasing boosters in a hanging blister pack, so that retailers can hang them with our expansions. You'll see this first with our reprint of Star Munchkin: Space Ships in June. Check out the picture if you want to see a side-by-side comparison; the one on the left is the old packaging, and the new packaging is on the right.


Star Munchkin: Space Ships

Munchkin Booty introduced Ships to the world of Munchkin. You guys immediately asked why we didn't have Ships for Star Munchkin as well. So now we do!

Star Munchkin: Space Ships lets you ride in -- or on -- the Horsefly, the Starfurry, or the USS Secondprize. You can buff your ships with a Quad-Mounted Laser or a Bridge. And you can let your new Sidekick, Otto, do the flying for you.

Live long and prosper and kill monsters!

Note: This is an expansion for Star Munchkin, not a stand-alone set. Space Ships is not collectible or randomized; every pack is the same as every other.

May 4, 2015: Get Munchkin Swag At Warehouse 23!


In addition to all the normal promos and swag you'd normally get from buying things on Warehouse 23, during the month of May we're going to give away even more stuff. Here's how it works:

When you make a purchase on Warehouse 23 that includes a Munchkin item:

. . . if you spend $30 or more, you get a free Munchkin Pillow Case!

. . . if you spend $100 or more, you get a free Munchkin Goodie Bag and a free Munchkin Pillow Case!

As with our other Warehouse 23 freebies, shipping, handling, and tax don't count toward your total, and the box size has to already be big enough to accomodate the new freebies. This has to be a physical purchase; electronic stuff doesn't count.

This deal is only through the month of May, and only while supplies last!

April 27, 2015: Polo!

The Munchkin Polo Shirt is back in stock at Warehouse 23 -- this time, the Munchkin head is electric blue! We ordered twice as many as before, but experience has shown that these don't stay on shelves long . . . don't wait to order one, or you may be too late!

April 20, 2015: First-Stage Boosters

A little while ago, I talked about some upcoming reprints of Munchkin booster packs. It occurs to me that I haven't mentioned teased our new boosters for the rest of the year. By all means, let me fix that oversight right now.

We (currently) have six new boosters on the schedule for the rest of 2015. In no particular order, and without giving away too much, I can tell you that:

  • One of them is Munchkin Apocalypse: Judge Dredd, which is in Steve's hands for some TLC. (Steve is the Law!) We still expect to see it this fall.
  • One of them is a companion to a previous Munchkin booster.
  • At least two of them are monster collections, like Munchkin Dragons and Munchkin Pathfinder: Gobsmacked.
  • One of them is useful as well as fun, and just may tie into one of our booster reprints this year . . . and maybe some new releases as well.
  • And a couple of them are so secret, I'm not even supposed to be talking about them! Whoops!

Got any speculation about what might be coming? Have requests for non-licensed boosters you want to see? Want to engage in random rumor-mongering about the boosters you think we might be working on for 2016? (Yes, we already have several boosters on next year's schedule!) Post your comments on the forums!

April 13, 2015: Promo Card Page Updated

We recently made a bunch of updates to our Munchkin promo card page. Go check it out!

(To answer one question: Yes, we do plan to reprint some of the promos that are currently out of print. In fact, we've sent a few of them to print in the past few weeks, and we'll look at the list as we continue working on new sets and reprints throughout the year. We know some folks have been having a hard time getting our OOP promos, so we're hoping they can take advantage of a second chance.)

April 6, 2015: Can't Stop, Reprints Will Eat Me

Last week was a flurry of approving reprints so we won't run out of games to sell later this year. Not a lot of NEW creative work got done, but keeping our backlist available is at least as important. (Here's how important: on the wall chart in my office, I had to split 2015 into two columns, one for new releases and one for reprints, just to have enough room to see everything.)

I did sneak in a few approvals of new stuff, however, so my week wasn't totally, um, smashed up.

This week, I get to turn back to the last couple of stragglers on our 2015 schedule plus work on some new stuff for 2016, including the first real work on our Top Secret Project* to celebrate our 15th anniversary. The fun never stops here at Munchkin Central!

-- Andrew Hackard

* Or one of them, at least. It is possible we have multiple Top Secret Projects afoot!
