Take on the role of your favorite characters and stomp out the baddies. The game is up on Kickstarter.

X-Men Munchkin Now Available

Back when I read comics, I was an X-fan. I mostly read X-Factor, but since I also read Wolverine, so that means I read some X-Men as well. And, of course, I watched the cartoon as well. As such, I've always been more a Marvel fan than a DC fan. So, even though I don't read comics anymore, I still get excited when I see new Marvel products come out. In this case, it's the X-Men edition of Munchkin.
