Steve Jackson Games announced a price increase on Munchkin, Zombie Dice, and Illuminati products, which will take effect on January 1, 2022.

These price increases are due to increased overhead, manufacturing, and shipping costs. The new price increases will affect Munchkin Core Sets which will have their MSRPs go from $24.95 to $29.95, and Munchkin Deluxe Sets, will have their MSRPs go from $29.95 to $34.95. Illuminati will go from its $34.95 price tag, which it had maintained since 1998, to $39.95, and Zombie Dice will go from $13.13 to $15.95.

Certain Munchkin low stock or out of stock items will experience a price increase prior to January 1. Munchkin Booty will go from $24.95 to $29.95 in October, and Munchkin Cthulhu, Munchkin Zombies, Munchkin Legends, and Munchkin Pathfinder will go from $24.95 to $29.95 in November. Also, Munchkin Pathfinder will go up $10 in price, from $24.95 to $34.95, in November as well.

Phil Reed, of Steve Jackson Games, referred to the logistical problems the industry is facing as a possible "extinction level event", as reported by ICv2 columnist Scott Thorne (see "Extinction Level Event?").
