Munchkin® To Be Adapted to Digital Platforms For the First Time in History by Asmodee Digital and Steve Jackson Games

Oct 29, 2017

Asmodee Digital, a leader in digital board game entertainment announced that the multi-million selling dungeon adventure card game, Munchkin, created and published by Steve Jackson Games Incorporated, will be reimagined for digital platforms, under license. The upcoming digital adaptation will put everything players love about Munchkin at their fingertips in the next year.

Designed by Steve Jackson and illustrated by John Kovalic, Munchkin is the mega-hit card game about dungeon adventure… minus all that pesky roleplaying business. Friends compete to kill monsters and grab hilarious magic items, like the Horny Helmet, Boots of Butt-Kicking, Staff of Napalm, and Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment. While their opponents are busy giggling, players are free to backstab friends, steal their stuff, grab the treasure and run!

Without the standard, long-winded RPG elements, Munchkin is not only fun and fast paced, it’s easily one of the most accessible games of its genre.

“We are thrilled to partner with Asmodee Digital for the first adaptation of Munchkin to digital platforms. Munchkin has become an evergreen game over the years and we believe the time has come to offer fans around the world a truly innovative experience,” says Phil Reed, CEO of Steve Jackson Games.

Munchkin Spell Skool is coming to a Walgreens near you from Steve Jackson Games!

This new Munchkin game features the adorable art of Katie Cook, who’s drawn everything from Munchkin Kittens and Puppies to Munchkin Cthulhu Guest Artist Edition, so you know it’s got charm! Speaking of charms, if you’re looking to learn about spellcasting, this is the game for you. Join one of the school clubs, like Chess Club, Potion Club, or the Forbidden Magic Club. Fight off the Rap Scallions with your Starter Wand, but watch out for the fearsome Moldy Mort and his minions! If you want to get a quick spellcasting primer, check out our How To Play video on Youtube and start training.

Munchkin Spell Skool was even featured on Forbes.com, focusing on games appearing in new places. (Who knew we’d see the day when Munchkin would show up in Forbes? To be fair, businesspeople do have a lot of loot to take, so it may have been inevitable . . .)

Look for Munchkin Spell Skool at your local Walgreens soon. Mix it with previous releases, like Munchkin Grimm Tidings or Moop’s Monster Mashup to make the ultimate magical mix-up!
