Steve Jackson Games will release Munchkin Russia, a new card game based on Munchkin, into retail in September.

This new version of Munchkin, developed by Pavel Iliin and Dmitry Moldon, delves into the myths and monsters of Russian folklore. Players can fight monsters like a Troll Factory, KGBirds, Rasputin, or even a Hangover with their Russian Wolfhound and Balalaika in tow. New character classes in this edition include a Hacker, an Oligarch, an Athlete, and a Cossak. The whimsical artwork for this game was provided by Sergey Dulin.

Munchkin Russia is for three to six players, ages 14 and up, and players in 60 to 120 minutes. It will retail for $24.95.

Steve Jackson Games will also release Munchkin Enhancers on May 5 (see "Add Challenges to 'Munchkin' Games with 'Munchkin Enhancers'").
