Steve Jackson Games has announced Munchkin Spell Skool, a new munchkin game with art by Katie Cook (Munchkin Puppies, Munchkin Kittens) coming to Walgreens. In Munchkin Spell Skool, 3-4 players take on the familiar wizards-in-a-school trope, joining the Chess Club, Potion Club, or Forbidden Magic Club, or using their starter wand to fight off baddies such as Rap Scallions or Moldy Mort. This new Munchkin Game even made it into Forbes magazine, featuring the trend of board games expanding into new stores.

Next is an expansion to an expansion for Munchkin, Munchkin 6.5: Terrible Tombs.  Back in 2008, Munchkin 6: Demented Dungeons was released that added a new mechanic to the game, dungeons, so Steve Jackson Games wanted to expand on this with their Munchkin 6.5 release.  This set will add an additional 20 dungeons to the game along with 16 portals to be able to get to them.  The is completely usable by itself in case you don’t have Munchkin 6 yet, expected release is April 2016.

Last is for those who love puppies and Munchkin, Munchkin Puppies.  This booster pack is similar to the Munchkin Kittens pack that was released earlier this year, but instead of evil cats, it’s adorable puppies, 30 of them to be exact.  This pack will have the back to match the original munchkin set but is compatible with all sets of munchkin so take these puppies with you anywhere you go.  Also of note is that these cards are being illustrated by the talented Katie Cook, who is also illustrating the Munchkin Cthulhu Guest Artist Edition.  Expected release is April 2016
