August 7, 2012: Munchkin And GenCon Indy!

Munchkin ConanMunchkin SkullkickersWhat is best at GenCon: Indy? Munchkin Conan, Munchkin Skullkickers, and more Munchkin Zombies!

Our GenCon release for Munchkin is Munchkin Zombies 3 - Hideous Hideouts. This expansion gives the beleaguered survivors more places to hide, including the Bowling Alley of the Dead and Some Dead Guy High. (You zombies can think of them as one-stop shopping . . .) Our partners at Adventure Retail will have some cool stuff normally only found on Warehouse 23!

Speaking of undead hordes roaming the Earth, how about a preview of Munchkin Apocalypse? Andrew Hackard, the Munchkin Czar, will be hosting one preview of this new game in booth #1301 each day. (Because of limited time, we suggest that only experienced Munchkin players participate in the preview -- but everyone's welcome to watch!) If you want a seat at his table, be sure to keep up with us on Twitter this week or drop by our booth early each morning. Every day at GenCon, one lucky person who tries their luck at our capsule machine will win a spot in a Munchkin Apocalypse game. (We've loaded the machine with plenty of loot this year, including a few brand new surprises!)

Andrew will be signing on Thursday and Saturday alongside Jim Zubkavich, writer of the Image comic Skullkickers. The Munchkin Skullkickers booster will be available at your Friendly Local Game Store in August, but of course we'll have copies at GenCon! On Thursday, Andrew will be signing from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Jim will be signing from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Both Andrew and Jim will be signing Saturday from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Please get in line early for both signings. On Thursday, Andrew will also be making an announcement that you won't want to miss!

Finally, if you think you've got what it takes, our Men In Black will be hosting two Munchkin tournaments. The final round for the Munchkin Quest Tournament starts at 2:00 p.m. and will be held in Hall E. The World Munchkin Tournament final begins at 10:00 p.m. on the same day in the same location. Check the GenCon program for more details! (We recommend planning to arrive at least 15 minutes ahead of time, just in case you get lost.) We will also be demoing Munchkin in our booth - just check our demo schedule on the TV in our Pyramid Tower!

I can't wait to see all of you at GenCon. Until then, practice stabbing your buddies and stealing their loot!
