The game was first announced at the New York Toy Fair in February (see “‘Yahtzee: Legend of Zelda,’ ‘Munchkin Zombies: Walking Dead,’ More”). Steve Jackson Games’ execs touched briefly on the license at the GAMA Trade Show when discussing plans for the Munchkin line with ICv2 (see “Steve Jackson Execs on ‘Munchkin’”).
Munchkin: The Nightmare Before Christmas is scheduled to release in September. This stand-alone game will include 168 game cards and 1 custom die. It is intended for 3 - 6 players, ages 10 and up, and plays in about an hour. MSRP is $24.95.
USAopoly recently released an expansion for another licensed Munchkin variant, based on the Adventure Time cartoon (see “‘Munchkin Adventure Time 2: It’s a Dungeon Crawl!’”).
