Looks like we are going to have plenty of Munchkin to play in the coming months as Steve Jackson Games has just announced Munchkin Steampunk!


Sure, everybody likes going down into the dungeon and killing monsters for their stuff; that’s a given. But what if that stuff had all sorts of clockwork gadgetry and steam-powered awesomeness attached to it? And what if the monsters were automatons and bad guys with flame throwers and flintlock pistols? And what if you had a fancy pocket watch? What then?

“We really like clockwork spider automatons,” said Munchkin Czar Andrew Hackard in the Steve Jackson Games press release. “I mean, who doesn’t? And they make killing monsters and taking their stuff even better!”

The set is a new core set, not an expansion, so there will be plenty of things to do in the game when it arrives in mid-2015. Want even better news? Phil Foglio is doing the art!
