TMNT

IDW Games and Nickelodeon have joined forces to create Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Ninja Pizza Party, a fast, fun card game for 2-6 players.

You’re the chef of honor at the party but you have your work cut out for you. These turtles are pizza-scarfing machines and they like their pizza extreme! Players race to create non-traditional pizzas for the Turtles and their friends. Work fast and be creative. Satisfying these heroes means using crazy ingredients like toasted marshmallows, banana slices, cheese puffs, popcorn and more.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Ninja Pizza Party is delivered in a collector’s tin and includes 60 pizza slices with a wide range of crazy topping choices. Designed by Prospero Hall (Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle, Hullabaloo) for fans of all ages, get ready for action in the kitchen and make a pizza for your favorite Turtle! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Ninja Pizza Party will available in March 2019.

From Nickelodeon, IDW, and Steve Jackson Games, Munchkin Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is the newest edition of the popular take-that card game that allows players to compete as the heroes in a half shell while kicking down doors. Now on Kickstarter, 3-to-6 players can tread old territory of two fan-favorite franchises for a fresh product that aims to please. Featuring excellent art from TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman, now the classic Munchkin formula looks and feels better than ever. As described on the campaign page:

     “Munchkin: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles puts you right into the roles of the Turtles to team up and fight evil! This game takes the butt-kicking, backflipping ninja stylings of the TMNT and combines it with the dungeon-exploring, loot-hoarding gameplay of Munchkin! Play as Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael along with April O’Neil and Casey Jones to take on Shredder, Krang and even more as you race to level 10.”

It cannot be understated that this game is using excellent art. For a series as weathered as Munchkin, this is absolutely the best these cards have ever looked and I’m sure fans of the turtles will agree. There’s also alternate art for player boards and the box itself available, all of which takes advantage of the classic comic-style that launched the TMNT franchise into what we know and love today.

IDW Games, Steve Jackson Games, and Nickelodeon Consumer Products announce a new addition to the long running Munchkin series of card games: Munchkin Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

In Munchkin Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, players will play the roles of the Turtles and their friends. The card game features all-new art from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator, Kevin Eastman, along with artist Tadd Galusha, and gameplay developed by designer Jon Cohn.

Munchkin TMNT will come in three versions: standard, deluxe, and deluxe ultimate. All three will be supported by a Kickstarter campaign set to start on March 7th.  The deluxe and deluxe ultimate will be Kickstarter exclusives available only during the Kickstarter campaign.  The deluxe version will feature character standees and a fully illustrated mounted Level tracker. The deluxe ultimate version will feature variant, retro-style coloring reminiscent of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics. The standard version will be available in retail stores.

All versions of Munchkin Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are expected to be available in June 2018.

While during the campaign you were able to get her for free, folks who found the TMNT game afterwards will now be able to add April O’Neil to their copy of the game.  The hero pack gives you everything you need to play with the character including special colored dice, special action cards, the figure, and the character card.  Also of note is that it will come with an additional scenario book to expand the adventures you can have with the turtles and April.  Delivery of the pack is set to start in the next couple weeks, and you can pre-order it on Indiegogo right now.

Wizkids has announced another expansion for the TMNT line of Heroclix figures called Shredder’s Return, set for release in March of 2017.  This set will just be boosters and a Fast Forces pack (a single pack containing 6 figures) and will feature over 30 new characters pulled from the entire universe of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics and cartoon series.  There will be a couple subsets within the entire set such as the Purple Dragon street gang and even variants of the turtles from when they were adventuring in space.  The Fast Forces pack will include all new dial variants for the four main turtles as well as Rocksteady and Bebop.  Look for all of this to arrive in stores come March 2017, and you can read more about the announcement on the ICv2 site.

In the October 2015 press release for Van Ryder Games, the company announced that Kevin Wilson, designer of hit games such as Descent, Civilization, Android, and TMNT, will be creating 1 of 4 upcoming new Abductor Packs to expand the solitaire game Hostage Negotiator.

See the official press release below:

Thompsons Station, TN – October 12th, 2015 – Van Ryder Games announced today that Kevin Wilson, designer of such notable games as Descent, Civilization, Android, and the upcoming TMNT, has signed on to design an Abductor Pack for the hit solitaire game Hostage Negotiator. The Abductor pack from Wilson is slated to be 1 of 4 new expansion packs to be released in 2016.

Van Ryder Games’ owner A.J. Porfirio comments, “We are thrilled to have Kevin on board to contribute to the growing amount of Hostage Negotiator content. He is undoubtedly the most prolific designer we have worked with and we couldn’t be more excited.”

Hostage Negotiator is a quick to play 20-30 minute card and dice game that has you negotiating with a hostage taker for the release of hostages. Gameplay features a hand building mechanic which has the feel of deck building, but without the deck. The game immerses you in the theme with many players reporting a strong emotional response when hostages are released or killed. The game is expandable by adding Abductor Packs that feature new Hostage Takers and new game play elements.

Hostage Negotiator is currently sold out and a 2nd printing is in progress with an expected Nov/Dec release date which will include a reprint of Abductor Packs 1 & 2, as well as, the introduction of Abductor Packs 3 & 4!
