We have some new games on the way from Steve Jackson Games, and only one of them has to do with Munchkin! First on the list is the Bill & Ted’s Excellent Board Game where you are essentially playing out the movie, collecting historical figures to help you pass your test. At the end of the game, whoever has the highest test score will be the winner. You can check out Sam’s righteous Youtube review for more information and his thoughts on the game.
Next is Munchkin: Moop’s Monster Mashup, this is a new entry in the Munchkin line that aim’s to bring in characters from the comic. In the comic, Moop is a magician who likes to experiment with combining different animals into brand new ones like the the Feather Boa or Owligator. The game plays the same as normal Munchkin so first person to level 10 is the winner.
Next is I Hate Zombies, the round table rock-paper-scissor game published by BoardGameGeek itself. The original print run was available only on the BGG store, now the retail edition will be coming to stores. Gameplay will still be the same of playing rock-paper-scissors TO THE DEATH, only now you will see the Steve Jackson Games name on the box.
Last is a game for the younger gamers called Muertoons Mix-up, based on the popular kids cartoon Muertoons. This is a simple game of playing cards in numerical order with some extras included to help shake things up. The name and the art all play off of the Dia de los Muertos celebration in Mexico so expect lots of festively decorated skeletons all over this.
And that’s it, no specific date is given on when they will be released, but given that advanced review copies have gone out it shouldn’t be long. You can check out the entire list on the ACD Distribution Newsline site.
