May 21, 2018: Munchkin Starfinder Preview: Ysoki

Munchkin Starfinder: YsokiI have some sad news. This is the last post in this series previewing the Classes and Races of Munchkin Starfinder. But I saved my favorite for the end: the adorable little rat-race called the Ysoki.

These little guys are able to stuff small objects into their cheeks for later use and have a significant advantage against larger foes who underestimate their fighting prowess. In the Starfinder Roleplaying Game, many Ysoki are viral media stars, and you can see why . . . they're so CUTE! (If you want to get close up with this little furball, click the card to make him bigger.)

We don't have any more Classes and Races to preview, but don't think we're done talking about Munchkin Starfinder! We'll have plenty to say about this new game in the weeks and months to come. Make sure to bookmark Munchkin News and check in every Monday for the latest news about all our new and upcoming Munchkin games!

May 7, 2018: Munchkin Starfinder Preview: Technomancer

Munchkin Starfinder: TechnomancerThe final class to show off from Munchkin Starfinder is the Technomancer. As the name implies, they fuse magic and technology to achieve remarkable effects, called "magic hacks" in the Starfinder Roleplaying Game. They're also able to access an extradimensional cache, so that you're never quite sure what sort of technological or magical equipment (or both!) you'll be facing. We didn't try to replicate the huge variety of magic hacks in Munchkin Starfinder, but we think we got a couple of cool effects that make the Technomancer more dangerous with One-Shot attacks. (Card magnification is available with the merest click on the thumbnail image.)

This is the penultimate preview card from Munchkin Starfinder! Keep checking Munchkin News every Monday so you don't miss the last one . . . my favorite new race in this setting.

Now Shipping!

In case you missed the Kickstarter update, Munchkin Starfinder arrived early at our fulfillment facility and we've already started shipping rewards to our backers! (I know! We're excited, too! We're using our entirely monthly allotment of exclamation points!)

April 30, 2018: Munchkin Starfinder Preview: Android

Munchkin Starfinder: AndroidGreeting, carbon-based life forms! I am here to present the latest preview for your Munchkin Starfinder card game, the Android!

In the Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Androids are a fully accepted part of society, with the same status as any other character race. Because of their unique physiology, they have some advantages other races don't, such as the ability to add enhanced targeting to their operating system and partial immunity from the effects of death. We've emulated both of these for the Munchkin Starfinder version, shown here. (Click the card to magnify.)

Our previews of Munchkin Starfinder are winding down . . . only two to go! Come back next Monday to see what we've got lined up for you in Munchkin News.

April 16, 2018: Munchkin Starfinder Preview: Three Old Friends

Munchkin Starfinder: MechanicMunchkin Starfinder: MysticMunchkin Starfinder: SoldierThis week is a little bit of a different update from the others we've done so far. The Starfinder Roleplaying Game includes three new classes that happen to share names with classes we've already done in other Munchkin sets. Rather than leave them out of Munchkin Starfinder, we decided to go ahead and reuse the names . . . which left the problem of whether to have the same abilities or not, even if those abilities don't 100% make sense, or to replace some or all of them with more Starfinder-y options.

In the end, we have one card that's exactly the same (Mystic), one that's entirely new (Mechanic), and one that splits the difference (Soldier). Click each one to see a larger version of these three new-but-not Munchkin Starfinder classes.

We have THREE Munchkin Starfinder updates to go! Check Munchkin News every Monday to see what we're talking about.

April 9, 2018: Munchkin Starfinder Preview: Lashunta

Munchkin Starfinder: LashuntaIt's always fun to work with a race that has an unusual appearance, and bringing the Lashunta into Munchkin Starfinder was certainly no exception. (Look at the Kasatha from a few weeks ago for another example.) Lashunta in the Starfinder Roleplaying Game have versatile antennae that they can use to cause a psychic daze in their opponents. It wasn't a hard choice to model both of these on the Munchkin Starfinder version of the Lashunta, and I really like what we came up with here. (Click the card to see it bigger.)

Don't forget that Kickstarter backers will start getting rewards shipped in May. If your Friendly Local Game Store was one of our retail backers, let them know that you want the game! Make sure to check out Munchkin News next Monday . . . it might be another preview or it might be something else, but you won't know if you don't come back to check!
