A Trio Of Third-Party Announcements
March 26, 2018
I wanted to take a break from Munchkin Starfinder previews to talk about three other companies who announced Munchkin games this month. It's going to be a good year!
- We've pointed at Munchkin: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from IDW Games in this space already, but I wanted to congratulate them on a very successful Kickstarter. They ended up with 3,353 backers and a total pledge of $146,647, which is fantastic for a project with no stretch goals and exactly one add-on. Alain and I have been looking over the files as they've come in and we could not be more delighted. I can't wait for y'all to see the results in a few months.
- Last week, USAopoly announced Munchkin Harry Potter, their first Deluxe-style game. We've been working closely with them on this one and it's going to be a real treat for everyone in the Potterverse. (And I would be remiss if I didn't mention that it blends very well with Munchkin Spell Skool . . .) That article talks about some other Harry Potter-themed games USAopoly will be coming out with, so definitely go read it!
- On Friday, SlugFest Games launched their Kickstarter for The Red Dragon Inn: Munchkin, bringing Spyke and Flower into the tavern for their special brand of hijinks in a two-player expansion that is also a playable game. Better yet, for an extra $10, you can also get Munchkin: The Red Dragon Inn, a 29-card Munchkin expansion that brings your favorite foes and loot (and, let's be honest, DRINKS) from The Red Dragon Inn into Munchkin itself. It even comes with a special promo Prize card for The Red Dragon Inn games. The Kickstarter ends on April 7, so don't forget to pledge, or you'll have to wait for the games to hit shelves this fall.
We're very excited to be working with three great companies this year and bringing you some games we're proud of. We certainly haven't forgotten our own Munchkin projects, including three that we just sent to print late last week. I can't talk about them yet, but as soon as I can, I'll definitely mention them here! And there are still more surprises on the horizon . . .
