The Munchkin Steampunk Kill-o-Meter makes keeping track of levels easy, and comes with two special Munchkin Steampunk bonus cards. MSRP is $6.95.

The Munchkin Undead booster adds 15 new monsters, curses and items dealing with deceased-but-still-moving foes. MSRP is $5.95.

Munchkin Imaginary Frenemies is a special pack with a special rule: as long as the cards remain unopened in their package, they are good for a +2 combat bonus, which cannot be lost to curses, bad stuff, theft, or player death. If the package is opened, the player can draw as many treasures as there are players in the game, with the player keeping one, and distributing the rest.  Also, if the door cards inside are signed with a pen and put in the player’s hand, they are good for double effect. MSRP is $3.95.

SJG also plans to release Munchkin Treasure Hunt to hobby trade distribution in October (see “'Munchkin Treasure Hunt' Comes to Hobby”).
