The rules are still as you remember, but the scenarios have all been gathered together. Plus, there’s new campaign rules.

CMON Partners with Steve Jackson Games to Make Munchkin Board Games

Just about all of us have played some version of Munchkin in our time as gamers. It’s a fun, little card game from Steve Jackson that takes the usual tropes of dungeon delving (or going into space, or pirates, or faeries, or a hundred other things it’s spun off into) and turns them on their ear, many sets lovingly drawn by famed artist John Kovalic. Well, soon, that fun, little card game is going to be a board game series from CMON. Steve Jackson and CMON are partnering up to create a new line of games based on the beloved card game.

They’ve got some sceenshots and a trailer video to check out.

Photos from Day 4 of Gen Con

Well, Gen Con wrapped up yesterday. Today’s a travel day for me. Then we’ll get you back to a closer-to-regular posting schedule tomorrow and going into the rest of the week. It’s impossible to thank all the people who made this show so awesome. There’s just too many to list (and my brain is still far, far too tired, even after some sleep). But it was an amazing show. Every year, I wonder if “The Greatest 4 Days in Gaming” is going to be false advertising or not, and every year, it proves itself correct. The show does, truly, deserve that title. Anyway, here’s the last galleries from the show. I hope you like ’em.

Steve Jackson Games Running Ogrezine Kickstarter

Steve Jackson Games’ Ogre was one of my first forays into gaming. I remember cutting apart the little chits from the “VHS Box” version of the game. Heck, my screen name for a while was OgreMkV on various media. I know it’s been a big part of many other gamers’ lives. Well, Steve Jackson is looking to continue support for the setting via the Ogrezine, a collection of Ogre articles. The project is up on Kickstarter now.

It’s April. The end of April. It’s about to get really hot here in Atlanta for a couple months. I don’t know about you, but I’m already wishing it was October.

X-Men Munchkin Now Available

Back when I read comics, I was an X-fan. I mostly read X-Factor, but since I also read Wolverine, so that means I read some X-Men as well. And, of course, I watched the cartoon as well. As such, I’ve always been more a Marvel fan than a DC fan. So, even though I don’t read comics anymore, I still get excited when I see new Marvel products come out. In this case, it’s the X-Men edition of Munchkin.

Batman: The Animated Series Dice Game Now Available

The Batman: The Animated Series show was one of the highest quality cartoon products I feel I’ve seen. It really captured the dark, dense world of Gotham and the inhabitants thereof. Though we watched it as kids (or, at least, I watched it as a kid), it really was full of grown-up themes and situations. Well, the Batman: The Animated Series Dice Game isn’t quite so dark, but it is just as fun. It’s also available now.

Munchkin Messenger Bag Deal From Steve Jackson Games

I have a messenger bag that I use to carry my laptop around, and also just various other useful things (like pens and notepad when I’m at a convention or such). It’s incredibly plain.

And until December 15th, they have a special deal going with it.

Steve Jackson Games Announces Munchkin Wonderland Board Game

The Munchkin game lets players head into deep, dark dungeons, take out monsters, and grab their loot. Well, the world of Wonderland isn’t necessarily the same as a deep, dark dungeon, but there are still plenty of weird things to behold and treasures to grab. So the two fit together rather well. So much so that Steve Jackson Games is coming out with Munchkin Wonderland, a new board game.

Ogre Miniatures Set 1 Up On Kickstarter

The Ogre game from Steve Jackson Games has had a rather large impact on my gaming life. Heck, I used to use Ogre_MkV as a screen name for the longest time. My old gaming group played the heck out of the VHS-box chit game. A friend was an MIB. So it’s cool to see the resurgence of the game with the Ogre Designer’s Edition that came out. Now, they’re getting new, plastic miniatures that are up on Kickstarter now.

USAopoloy Posts A Look Inside the Marvel Munchkin 2 Set

Super hero comics are filled with all sorts of mystical and magical heroes and items.

One of the first RPG systems I learned was GURPS (I actually learned it long before I learned anything D20-based). The system is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. With that, Steve Jackson is running a Kickstarter for Dungeon Fantasy, an RPG that uses the famously-flexible GURPS system. The campaign’s up and running right now.

Bill and Ted’s Excellent Board Game Now Available

I’ve had my fair share of history tests over the years (I do have a degree in the subject, after all). And yes, for some of those tests, I didn’t study nearly as much as I should’ve. I certainly did wish I’d had access to a time machine. If nothing else, I’d go and study a bit more and then come back, but going back to the events in question could’ve also worked. And that’s just what you’re doing in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Board Game, now available from Steve Jackson Games.

Gen Con Day 3 Photos

I swear this show is just screaming by this year. It’s already the end of Day 3. Today will be the last day for Gen Con 2016. As usual for Gen Con Saturday, it was a whirlwind of activity. There was roaming the hall, taking photos most of the morning and early afternoon. Then there was the media event in the CMON booth. Expect a few more posts about games from that in the morning. My brain’s just too fried to do much more than get you a recap of the photos I posted earlier today.
