August 25, 2012: It Won't Hurt To Laugh At PAX Prime

Munchkin Cover ArtEver wonder how we come up with funny Munchkin cards and rules? If you're at PAX Prime this year, you'll find out. Andrew Hackard, our Munchkin Czar, will be on a panel, moderated by Will Hindmarch, dubbed "It Only Hurts When You Laugh." Andrew's fellow panelists include James Ernest (Give Me The Brain), Keith Baker (Gloom), and Mike Selinker (Unspeakable Words).

The panel description covers a ton of questions about how they tickle your funny bone . . . er, dice . . . "What's the funniest game you've ever played? Why? What's the difference between games that are meant to be funny and games that end up being funny through play? What games get it right and which ones try too hard? What makes Toon different from Paranoia, or Munchkin different from Poo?"

Right now, this presentation is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 2, in the Unicorn Theater on the 6th floor of the Washington State Convention Center.

Hope to laugh with you there!
