http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2016-12-08

March is jam-packed with exciting releases! Munchkin gets a new Guest Artist Edition, Spyke and Flower go back to Oz with more weapons, and Ogre Sixth Edition gets an expansion. If you want firepower, we've got it in March 2017! Look for these titles at your friendly local game store next year! 

Munchkin Guest Artist EditionMunchkin Guest Artist Edition



Kick some skulls with Edwin Huang.

Celebrating the 15th anniversary of Munchkin, the Guest Artist Edition line is packed with all-star artists, and Edwin Huang is the latest addition to that lineup. Known for Skullkickers (and the Munchkin variety) and Street Fighter Unlimited, among others, Huang's kinetic artwork brings a dynamic touch to classic Munchkin.

Get the newest addition to this limited printing at your friendly local game store.

Enhance your defense with new units to defend the Combine base in Ogre Reinforcements, an expansion for Ogre Sixth Edition. This set comes loaded with five 3-D units, 56 counters, and 25 overlays to help take your Ogre combat to the next level. Plus, you get five scenarios written by Steve Jackson!

This supplement is intended for players with Ogre Sixth Edition. Owners of the Ogre Designer's Edition already have the rules and counters for these units.

Munchkin OzMunchkin Oz



Follow the yellow brick road . . . to loot!

Adventure with the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodsman! Brave the Poppy Fields or the Deadly Desert! Fight against a Wicked Witch or King Krewl! Visit the Emerald City and talk with Dorothy, Ozma, or the Cowardly Lion! Play a Professor, Royalty, Soldier . . . or even a Wizard! L. Frank Baum's Oz books have been favorites of children and their parents ever since the books were published more than a century ago. Create your own adventure with Munchkin Oz!

You may recall seeing Munchkin Oz at retailers in the past; starting in March it will be available at your friendly local game store!

Munchkin Oz 2Munchkin Oz 2: Yellow Brick Raid



Raid the Emerald City!

L. Frank Baum wrote 14 books about the marvelous land of Oz, so try as we might, there was no way we could fit all those adventures and characters into Munchkin Oz.

That's why we've made 56 more cards to shuffle into your original Munchkin Oz deck – it's Munchkin Oz 2 – Yellow Brick Raid!

Whether you're a fan of Baum's books or you've just always meant to read them but never got around to it because reading is hard, you can experience the fun of the Oz setting in even more detail now when you play Munchkin.

December 5, 2016: A Super Munchkin Interview With Guest Artist Art Baltazar!

http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2016-12-05

Super Munchkin Guest Artist Edition Award-winning comic artist Art Baltazar (Tiny Titans, Patrick and the Wolf Boy), who illustrated our upcoming, action-packed release Super Munchkin Guest Artist Edition, answered a few questions for us about his process, superheroes, and (of course) cloning.

Q: Your Super Munchkin art looks great! Before you took this project, were you a Munchkin fan?

A: AW YEAH! I always knew about the game! We sell the Munchkin card games at our stores AW YEAH COMICS! Plus, I've always been a fan of John Kovalic's cartooning!

Q: You've drawn a lot of very different projects in your time. What's your process for getting your head into new material so that you can illustrate it?

A: I'm kind of familiar with all things pop culture – especially comics and cartooning. But sometimes I need a refresher. Thanks to the internet, I can educate myself on all things Munchkin, opening my brain to a much larger world!

Q: What did you do to prepare to draw Super Munchkin?

A: When Steve Jackson Games asked me to redraw all the cards, I thought . . . wow! That's a lot of cards. I love drawing and designing characters. So, preparation involved a large pot of fresh-brewed coffee and flipping each card over one at a time, and then drawing the first image that popped into my head. I just had to roll up the sleeves and get in there!

Awesome Cat

Q: What's your favorite card from the set you drew?

A: Wow. I liked a lot of them. The comedian guy stands out for me. But I really liked drawing Action Cat and Awesome Bear in the set. My guys meet Munchkin guys. An instant classic crossover in the making!

Q: What was the biggest challenge for you about drawing these cards?

A: Hmm. The big challenge was getting them all done. It's like when you order a pizza. When it arrives, you are so hungry and you have no doubts you can eat the whole thing yourself! Then halfway through, you feel like you need help finishing. Let's just say, I am very thankful for the colorist! AW YEAH LIGHTER WORKLOAD!

Q: If you could have a super-power, what would it be and why?

A: Oh, man. I wish I had the ability to clone myself. Then I can be the art director of my selves and watch all these cool cartoonists work on multiple projects all at once. I could have 12 monthly books published around the clock! 24-hour comics forever!

Q: Where can people find you online and learn more about your other projects?

A: AW YEAH! I'm all over the place on all social mediums! The best place to find me is www.artbaltazar.com. There are links to my other web pages and you can shop for comics and read some for free! You're a good man, Munchkin

Pick up Super Munchkin Guest Artist Edition, available now, only at Target!

December 3, 2016: Give A Hearty Welcome To Ian Richards, OP Manager!

http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2016-12-03

Ian Richards Hey, everyone. I'm Ian Richards, Organized Play Manager for Steve Jackson Games. I grew up in the UK and got my degree in Graphic Design, but quickly found a passion for marketing. I've over 16 years experience in designing and developing Organized Play programs, cutting my teeth at Wizards of the Coast (who you can blame for moving me to the U.S.) and helping retailers in the distribution channel.

After 12 years in Washington, we finally made the move back to my wife's home state of Florida. After 12 years in the U.S., I finally nationalized, as I love this country.

I'm a big believer in staying in touch with consumers to help me design better programs. To help me achieve this, I regularly run demos at local stores to ensure I get to talk with players and retailers alike.

At Steve Jackson Games, we've big plans for OP, and 2017 will see us adding programs for pretty much all of our existing lines, plus a few games we've yet to tell you about! Stay tuned!!!

December 2, 2016: Ogre Miniatures Set 1 Tramples Kickstarter Goals

http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2016-12-02

Ogre Miniatures Set 1 Ogre Miniatures Set 1 rolled through Kickstarter as if it was a defenseless Command Post, leaving mangled metal in its wake. Not only did the project fund, but it crushed all expectations, beating our final stretch goal by almost $5,000! It was an incredible show of support from the Ogre fanbase, and now we get to start the fun stuff! We have loads of plastic miniatures to make, plus the other awesome Ogre games and supplements coming this year and next.

For those who missed out, we will have preorders available through BackerKit, but we also want to direct you to your friendly local game store. The standard color sets will be available through retailers when they release next year. And stay in touch with your store, because we've got a ton of stuff planned for Ogre!

Ogre Sixth Edition, previously scheduled for January release, is now available for preorder, and will ship to retailers before Christmas! Talk about a full-metal miracle. You'll want to get it now and start playing, because in January, we'll be starting up Ogre Organized Play at your local game store. Ian and Josh are working hard to get the program off the ground, so talk to your local store now! And retailers can signup for our Ogre Launch Kit, to be shipped in February

This has been a fun, stressful, and rewarding month for me in particular, and I want to thank everyone for their support of this project. Now it's for Steve to look at the feedback and think about Ogre Miniatures Set 2 . . .

For international orders, the last day to order for your stuff to arrive by Christmas is December 2. After that, customs might hold up your order. Domestic shipments in the United States have until 11:59 p.m., Central time, December 15, for their purchases to arrive by Christmas.

We don't control the postal service, weather, or snowmen. Yet.)

Warehouse 23 is closing after shipping orders received on or before December 15, so if you plan to order for holiday giving, make sure you do so before December 15.
