There is now a web page for The Fantasy Trip

If you like playing Munchkin,
you probably love treasure and cheating. Hey, no judgment here! . . .

I'm at home today, catching up on chores and working on TFT

. . .

Thank you to Lynn and Amy of The GameBoard in Sheboygan, WI, for all of their encouragement and support of the new Munchkin Collectible Card Game
in their store. The GameBoard was kind enough to host one of our pre-release events earlier this year (report here), and now they're running a weekly league; gamers are getting together on Tuesdays at the store to compete against each other! . . .

We know that you all have been anxiously awaiting an update about a certain spacefaring game, and we have one for you now . . . Munchkin Starfinder
is once again in your orbit!
will hit retail shelves in October 2018, so you'll be able to enjoy it during cozy game nights this fall! (Don't worry, Kickstarter backers – it is still on track to ship to you in May.) . . .

The biggest news of the last month was the overwhelming response to the release of the Munchkin Collectible Card Game

You may wish to view this finely crafted web page at which Sergio Segura interviews me for The Eckleburg Project, an arm of the Texas A&M university magazine. This was a fun interview . . .

The meteor that took out the dinosaurs might not have acted alone. Turns out, throwing a 10-kilometer chunk of rock at Earth does more than throw dust into the atmosphere; it unleashes all manner of cascading failures and Terran disasters . . .

We're back on the road again this week for the annual GAMA Trade Show. A Vegas fixture for many years, this is its first year at the Peppermill in Reno, NV.

The Munchkin Collectible Card Game
is at your local game store now! In our haste to bring this brand-new game to you, we sadly left out some information and have found some information a bit confusing in the quick-start rules in each starter set . . .

If you have been following our Stakeholder Reports, you will find this very interesting. Stonemaier Games, publisher of (among others) Scythe

The SJ Games team has spent the week at the GAMA Trade Show in Reno, showing off our new and upcoming releases to retailers and distributors from around the country (and world)!
Our annual penthouse party was busier than ever, with around 200 attendees getting to play the Munchkin Collectible Card Game

Last year, when Geek Chic closed up shop, it was as big a surprise to many of their employees as it was to their customers and fans. Now, several of those employees have taken what they learned and launched their own company, Bandpass Design . . .

We've had an amazing response to the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game
from fans and new players alike . . . so much so that the game sold out at our main warehouse. However, it's not on the short list for a reprint at this time, so you should look for your own copy at the local game store soon, before it's gone! . . .
