Munchkin


Support a Higher Porpoise With John Kovalic

Every year, famed artist John Kovalic does his bike charity event. In order to raise funds for it, he will make postcards for Munchkin that are 100% game-legal and legit. Pledging to his team during the charity ride is the only way to get ahold of these. Well, the event's coming up soon, and Mr. Kovalic's posted up the artwork for this year's card.

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.

What a Marvel it is: An Unboxing and Review of Munchkin Marvel

I don’t particularly have anything against DC Comics, but I’ve always just enjoyed Marvel more. That’s extended from the comics I read in the 90s through the products I see coming out that have the Marvel license. And with the recent upswing in Marvel movies (well, comic book movies in general, to be fair), there’s been a lot more things coming out that mix my love of tabletop gaming with my love of Marvel. And so here, today, we have the Marvel set for Munchkin.

The fine folks at USAOpoly sent me a copy (and some extras, which we’ll get to) to check out and let you know about.

So grab your vibranium shield and web spinners, it’s time for a combined TGN Unboxing and Review. This time around it’s Munchkin Marvel by Steve Jackson Games and USAOpoloy.

Munchkin Puppies Are Coming and You Could Win Some

So, if I could have any pet I wanted, I'd want a whole herd of polar bears. However, I'm sure something like that would require very specific zoning laws and whatnot. So, in the meantime, I'd want a whole pack of dogs. Granted, my apartment's a bit small, so I should probably stick to just plants for the time being. However, I can now bring a whole pack of puppies to my Munchkin games (or, I will be able to soon), and I might be able to do it for free, if I'm lucky.

This Is Halloween. A Review of The Nightmare Before Christmas Munchkin by USAopoly and Steve Jackson Games

For most of my friends, Halloween is their favorite holiday of the year. What can I say? I’ve got some weird/cool friends. Though certainly they are known to sometimes dress up just for funsies at any point during the year, Halloween really lets them pull out all the stops. As such, they’re pretty much all huge fans of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. So yeah, they were all pretty jealous when this one showed up on my desk.

tgn-reviews_360

So I know you’ve already got at least one song from the movie stuck in your head, but let’s see what is this with another TGN review. This time it’s The Nightmare Before Christmas Munchkin.

Ok, so steampunk is a lot more than just adding a gear to it. There's also brass and copper pipes and so forth. Also, Munchkin.

Munchkin Hipsters Now Available

I've been wearing glasses since grade school. I've had a beard since high school. I liked gaming back in the 90s. I've occasionally been accused of being a hipster, though thankfully not very often. I just happen to like obscure things that most people don't know all that much about and I'm too lazy to shave every day. And my eyesight is terrible. Whether you're an actual hipster or not, you might be interested in Munchkin Hipsters.
