Steve Signing at Origins, Cheats, and Improve Your Shelf!

We're preparing for the first big convention since mailing out all of the Munchkin Starfinder rewards, and that means that we're hoping to see some of you very soon. If you are at Origins next week, please be sure to bring along your Munchkin Starfinder game; Steve will be at the con all five days, and he will happily sign games during the scheduled times.
Will there be any Munchkin Starfinder fun for sale? Nope! We're really doing everything we can to give all of you who supported this project some "alone time" with the game before taking it into a wider release. Hopefully, by now, all of you who have received your games have had a chance to play. And if you haven't, and if you'll be at Origins, maybe you'll get your chance to play at the convention. Who here will be at Origins next week?
It's Time to Cheat!
Cheating has always been a part of Munchkin, even if some players tend to take it a little too far and cheat outside of the rules of the game. For those of you who cheat as allowed by the rules (and only in the most fun of ways), you'll be happy to hear that we've released a new pack of cards that feeds right into the excitement: Munchkin Cheats is available now!
Illustrated by Lar deSouza (who contributed to Munchkin Shakespeare and to the Munchkin Collectible Card Game), Munchkin Cheats is best described by the set's developer, Andrew Hackard, in the designer's notes article posted here. And don't miss the sample cards if you want a closer look at this new pack.
Munchkin Shelf Improvement
Lastly, before we rush off to Columbus and the Origins show, we want to direct your attention to the Munchkin Shelf Improvement box currently available at Warehouse 23. This box of tuckboxes and mini-expansions is a great way to instantly boost your Munchkin collection and amaze your friends with a bunch of new cards all in one box. What's inside? Over $60 worth of different expansions . . . and all for only $30.
BONUS: Munchkin Shelf Improvement includes three new game rules!
That's all for today, gang. It's time that we finish preparing for Origins (all while getting new Munchkin sets like Side Quests and Fowl Play ready for Gen Con). If you're at Origins next week, please stop by and say hi!

Munchkin Starfinder and Distribution Release
22 days ago

Now that many of you have received your games, and all of the international rewards have shipped, we've taken a closer look at the remaining copies of the game and know exactly how many games we will put into distribution later this year. Unfortunately, we will not have enough copies of Munchkin Starfinder 2 to send that title to stores, meaning that the expansion may be tougher to come by than we first expected.
When will Munchkin Starfinder, including the I Want It All! box, go into stores? At the moment, we're planning to ship the game to distributors in September or October, which puts it in stores either late October or early November. For those of you who want to grab extra copies to hand out as gifts, you should be able to preorder at your friendly local game store later this summer.
Christmas In July Stretch Goals!
In other news, the Munchkin Christmas in July project closes in a few days, and two of the project's stretch goals have already been unlocked, adding more promo cards and another Munchkin mini-expansion into the box. For those of you who are unsure of which sets are classified as mini-expansions, please see this page at the official website. As you can tell, we have released a lot of small packs over the years, and all because of your incredible support and kind feedback on the small sets. Thank you.

(Ignore the Ogre update I put in the wrong place, sorry!)
For those folks who preordered via BackerKit, we had a small delay for some of those preorders that did not ship out with the initial backer shipments. Those should be heading out now, so keep an eye out over the next couple weeks if you were one of our BackerKit preorders.
Thanks for leaving all the great feedback about seeing your packages, and remember if you share an unboxing, tag us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and we can share it as well!

The finished copies of Munchkin Starfinder landed early! At the moment, our fulfillment partner expects to complete shipping U.S. rewards by early next week. At that point, games will be shipped to Warehouse 23 in Austin where our team will handle the international shipments. We expect international rewards to start shipping out mid-May and we will post an update when the games reach us in Austin.
Thank you, everyone, for your support and encouragement on this project. The final package is incredible -- especially that I Want It All! box that you can see unboxed in this Facebook video.
