Munchkin News

March 20th, 2017: Back Home, Back To Work

Today's the first day that I've been in the office since March 2, and after a week of vacation on the JoCo Cruise and a week of meeting our partners at USAopoly and in Las Vegas at the GAMA Trade Show, it's a relief to be standing at my own desk looking at the pile of work that has accumulated in my absence. (Even if I am recovering from the worst cold I've had in a couple of years – thanks, Bally's!)

My top priority this week is to push hard on the games and accessories that came out of the Munchkin Shakespeare Kickstarter. We're getting closer to having BackerKit up and ready to go and we want to be able to show you more of the art when that happens. Luckily, a lot of my development work was completed before I left, and I braved the world's worst hotel Internet to approve dozens more pieces while I was in Vegas. (Thanks, Bally's!) I fully expect that all the Shakespeare projects will go to print on time.

I'm also going to be helping Devin with the Munchkin Collectible Card Game. We got some encouraging news out of our meetings in Las Vegas and it's time to kick this whale across the finish line! (I . . . don't think that's a real metaphor. But it ought to be!)

Speaking of GAMA, several of Phil's meetings last week were very productive and point to more work coming at me like a freight train very shortly. I'd better enjoy this slight respite while I have it!

Ogre News

March 20th, 2017: Operation Newspaper - ODE-Style!

"Operation Newspaper" is a scenario written by Steve Jackson in support of the supplement, Shockwave, and published in The Ogre Book. This is an incredibly fun scenario, and if any of you have not tried it, it is well worth your time to do so. Armed with his massive Ogre Designer's Edition set, Will Hutton set out to play this, only to discover that some of the rules were a bit cryptic when playing it with Ogre Designer's Edition and not Shockwave. So he went about updating the rules to support the new version of the game and created a pdf for others to download and enjoy. We are pleased to share this with you as he did a really nice job - thanks, Will!

You can find both the updated version as well as the original version of this scenario on our Scenarios page - check it out! Owners of Ogre Sixth Edition will need the Giant Battlefields Set and either a couple of copies of Ogre Reinforcements to play the game (alternate counters can be used as stand-ins for the 16 LGEVs as needed!) or one of the extra counter sets from ODE: either Ogre Designer's Edition Extra Counter Set or Ogre Classic Counters Set.

Traveller News Service

February 16th, 2013: Capital/Core 047-1130

The Imperial Navy announced today that the private cruiser Sargon, formerly the private transport of the deceased Archduke Dulinor, will be returned to Archduchess Isis, his daughter and heir. Dulinor was killed in 1116 while shuttling to the surface of Capital in one of Sargon's small craft, which exploded while entering far orbit. The cruiser has been in Imperial custody since the day of the assassination, under guard at an undisclosed Imperial Naval facility, but was recently released back to the Archduke's family, as the Naval investigators feels no further evidence in the crime will be forthcoming. Archduchess Isis is not in system at the present, but her office issued a press release announcing that a crew will be provided to return the vessel to Illelish, but gave no further details.
