May 23, 2012 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Since 1998, Penny Arcade has been entertaining geeks across the Internet with a satirical comic that pokes good-natured fun at gaming and geek culture.
Since 2001, Steve Jackson Games has been entertaining gamers across the world with Munchkin, the award-winning card game built on poking good-natured fun at fantasy gaming.
Now, Steve Jackson Games is proud to announce the release of Munchkin Penny Arcade, putting Gabe and Tycho's creations in the middle of Munchkin's backstabbing, min-maxing action.
"Penny Arcade is perceptive, fearless, and funny, and Gabe and Tycho have done an amazing amount of good for the geek community," said company president Steve Jackson. "And now they have a Munchkin booster. Well, nobody's perfect."
"Steve Jackson has the most incredible coattails," said Penny Arcade's Tycho Brahe. "The opportunity to ride them is a dream come true."
Munchkin Penny Arcade will be a 15-card booster for the original, fantasy-based Munchkin game, illustrated by Mike Krahulik. It is currently at the printer and expected to hit stores this fall. For more about Penny Arcade, visit www.penny-arcade.com.
