Steve Jackson Games announced Munchkin Tails, a new animal-themed version of the popular Munchkin card game, for release by July 1.

Munchkin has gone to the dogs as well as to any other mammal sporting a fluffy tail. Munchkin Tails, a new set designed by Andrew Hackard and illustrated by Katie Cook, allows players to add their favorite four-legged friends to any other fantasy Munchkin set or simply use on its own. This new set is geared towards starting players, and is a great way to introduce them to this legacy game line.

The game box comes with 168 cards, a custom six-sided die, and a rulesheet. This game will retail for $24.95.

Steve Jackson Games revealed Munchkin: Something Fishy and Munchkin: Tails of the Season, two new expansions for the Munchkin card game, for release in September (see "Steve Jackson Games Reveals Two New 'Munchkin' Expansions").
