Well, it only took about 15 years to get here, but it's finally Friday. You know, for a short week, it was a long-as-hell week! Not that anything bad happened. And I had various things to work on the whole time. But dayum, it feels like it should've been Friday about 4 days ago. Oh well, as much as it seems we've been waiting for it forever, it's here. And that means some tasty gaming morsels are in store. And today, it's all about Dice.
Clickety-clackety! I roll for attackety!
Today on the platter we have: New Cthulhu Dice from Steve Jackson Games, The Wyrmwood Hero Vault 2 Up On Kickstarter, Self-Standing Dice Bags Up On Kickstarter, Virtue Symbol D8s Up On Kickstarter, Chritical (S)hit Dice Up On Kickstarter, and Sylvan Dice Available From Kraken Dice.
Steve Jackson Games has jumped from Kickstarter to Indiegogo for their latest project. They're looking to expand the amount of Ogre miniatures you have at your disposal. They're looking to turn some of the older, hard-to-find metal miniatures that they used to make into new, plastic versions. So, if you're looking for futuristic tanks the size of city blocks, this is your place to go.
We're halfway there. The weekend will soon be once more upon us. I know I can't wait. I've got game again this weekend. The continuing saga of our D&D group of adventurers that... still really aren't that much of a cohesive group and don't really like each-other that much. ... Yeah, our party dynamics are weird. :P
But anyway, that all aside, we need to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: New Jigswords Available From Puppets War, Kraken Dice Previews Bugaboo Set, and Munchkin Bricks 2 Up on Kickstarter.
Look, I know the theme song is probably already stuck in your head just because of the title and the image of the box there. I won't make it any worse. I promise. Anyway, USAopoly has announced another version of Munchkin that they'll be coming out with. It's heading to Duckburg. They've announced Munchkin: DuckTales.

I used to read a ton more webcomics than I do today. Most up and died pretty quickly, left to dissolve as their creators run out of stories and they fade away. Girl Genius isn't like that. It's got a rich story going back quite a long time and it's still loved by millions. It's now getting its own Munchkin Steampunk set. Take on the role of your favorite characters and stomp out the baddies. The game is up on Kickstarter.
It's October, and so that means the season of ghosts and goblins and things that go bump in the night. It's also a time where Warehouse 23 has their Halloween Madness sale. So if you want some cool stuff for free with your orders, you'll want to go check it out. But you only have until the clock strikes Midnight on Halloween to get them.
The Fantasy Trip was arguably the original fantasy RPG out there. Steve Jackson wrote it waaaaaaay back before most of you were probably even gaming (it was before I was gaming, I admit). The Kickstarter for a new version was a big success, but what if you weren't able to get in on that? No fear! The pre-order is here!
A new version of Munchkin will soon be unleashed on the populace. This time, the tropes and antics will come from Paizo's Starfinder RPG. The game was originally funded via Kickstarter, and so the box will include various extras unlocked therein. Pre-orders are being taken now.
In the grim darkness of the 41st millennium, there is only a bunch of crazy weirdos running around, fighting aliens, collecting crazy gear, and trying to get to Level 10 first. Steve Jackson Games has announced a partnership with Games Workshop to bring you Munchkin: Warhammer 40,000.
Just about all of us, at some point in time, has played a game of Munchkin, or possibly one of the dozens of separate sets, or the CCG. But CMON and Steve Jackson are teaming up to bring a new form of Munchkin to your tabletop. It's Munchkin Dungeon, a new board game set in the wild and wacky world of Munchkin. Beware of ducks.
One of the original fantasy role-playing games out there, The Fantasy Trip (no relation to a magical mystery trip), created by Steve Jackson, is back. Steve's got the license to make it back again, and that's just what he's doing. He's tossed the game up on Kickstarter in a new Legacy Edition format that take the original rules, updates and expands them.
There feels like there's a billion Munchkin expansions out there, each one adding in new elements to the game to keep players on their toes. Currently, Steve Jackson Games is running a Kickstarter for a new one. It's all about Unicorns and Friends, in fact, that's what they've decided to call it.
Steve Jackson Games has been making games for quite some time, longer than many of us have been gaming, or even really been alive. The Fantasy Trip was originally published back in the 70s, and so it's been somewhat hard to find in this new, renaissance era of gaming. Well, it's making a comeback. This July 23rd, SJG will be launching a Kickstarter campaign to get the game back on shelves.
It's been quite a long time since I've played in a GURPS game. Though, it actually was a Covert Ops game, so seeing that title available as one of the new ones that are available now to be printed On-Demand from Steve Jackson Games, it hit me right in the Nostalgia Zone. If you've been wanting a copy of GURPS Cops or Covert Ops, now's your chance, instead of having to hunt them down the old-fashioned way.
Weekeeeeend! Woo! Ok, so it's not exactly here yet, but it will be soon enough (That's not soon enough!). Just gotta get through the rest of today and we'll be there. I've got gaming lined up for tomorrow. I hope you do, too. But, as always, if we're going to be spending a day gaming, we should be sure to snack on some bite-sized gaming stories so we have our strength with us.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I'm sure that many of you, reading that line, three times in a row, read it in a very specific way in your mind.

The set is up on Kickstarter now.
Today's the release day for Steve Jackson Games' latest addition to the Munchkin line. Well, sort-of addition. It's a new set, but you're not gonna be mixing it in with your previous Munchkin cards. Nope, this time around, the game's hitting the CCG arena. Build your own deck and battle against your opponent's hero. If you'd like to know a bit more about the Munchkin CCG, you can check out the review I did. After that, you can go pick up your own copy.
Lotsa people grouping together for this one. IDW has teamed up with Steve Jackson Games and Nickelodeon to bring you a new Munchkin set.

While you're still waiting for the release of the Munchkin CCG, Steve Jackson Games has other Munchkin-themed products available. And since we're just under a week away from Valentine's Day, love is in the air with these sets.
GURPS has been Steve Jackson's RPG system for decades now. There's been dozens and dozens of supplements put out for it over that time, some of which have been out of print since before many of you probably even started gaming. So, what's a gamer to do when they want to find one of those old supplements? Well, you could try and scour used book stores or gaming auctions. But Steve's here to help with their GURPS On-Demand printing service. The newest addition to it is Banestorm.
Just about all of us have at least seen all the variations of Munchkin out there. It’s been a staple of Steve Jackson Games’ line since it came out. Most of the sets have been illustrated by the illustrious John Kovalic. Well, a new set of Munchkin is about to come out. One that’s different than all the others. It’s the Munchkin CCG.
Steve Jackson Games was kind enough to hook me up with a Cleric vs. Thief starter set, as well as some booster packs so I can tell you all about it.
So grab your alluring codpiece and chainsaw of bloody dismemberment, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s the Munchkin CCG by Steve Jackson Games.
Those that’ve been long-time readers of TGN know that I have a love of “gaming backpack games.” Those are games that are very small and compact, tend to have few rules and a small footprint on the table, and can be played at almost a moment’s notice. They’re so named because you can toss them in your gaming backpack and whip them out whenever you’ve got a spare moment, be it before the rest of your group shows up for an RPG session, or between rounds in a miniatures game tourney, or just whenever you and some friends have a couple spare minutes. Super Kitty Bug Slap, from Steve Jackson Games, fits firmly into that category. But how does the game work?
Well, the fine folks over there sent me a copy, so I can tell you all about it.
Please, leave your fly swatters at home (they’d be cheating). It’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s Supper Kitty Bug Slap.
