The first in CMON’s licensed series of games based on Steve Jackson’s Munchkin card game has been revealed.  Munchkin Dungeon, created by Eric M. Lang (Rising Sun, Arcadia Quest) and Andrea Chiarvesio (Kingsburg, Hyperborea), is planned for 2019.

Like the original game, in Munchkin Dungeon, players head into a dungeon packed with whimsically-illustrated monsters in a quest to gain glory and loot.  The key, of course, is defeating the monsters, though if a player encounters one that is too strong they can always run away.  However, running from a fight earns the player “shame points” that act as a penalty at the end of the game.

Munchkin Dungeon will feature illustrations by fan-favorite John Kovalic in his trademark style and plastic miniatures created by CMON’s team of sculptors.  The game is intended for 3 to 5 players.  Components and MSRP have not yet been announced.

The two companies announced a multi-year deal for the Munchkin franchise late last year (see “‘Munchkin’ Board Games”).

CMON will launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project in 2019.

The company recently announced plans for another board game with miniatures for next year called Project:  ELITE (see “CMON Revamps ‘Project:  ELITE’”).
