Port Royal Sets Sail in August 2017 from SJGames

port royal

April 13th, 2017

Announced by Steve Jackson Games, the award-winning Port Royal sets sail in August 2017!

Will you become the richest, most notorious merchant in Port Royal? Or will you end up with an empty cargo hold?

Players vie to hire the best Admirals, Sailors, Traders, and Mademoiselles to expand and fortify their vast shipping empires! On your turn, you’ll push your luck to amass the most wealth or to hire the best characters – but if you push it too far, you get nothing, so be wary.

Gamers have loved Port Royal since the game’s European release. It won the Wiener Spiele Akademie Game Designer Award for 2013, and in 2015 became the Vuoden Peli Family Game of the Year.

January 13th, 2017

The release of Super Munchkin Guest Artist Edition is available exclusively at Target and is part of SJGames Guest Artist Edition line of Munchkin games.

Steve Jackson Games is publishing these limited print run games to celebrate 15 years since the original game’s 2001 release.

The art in a new superhero-themed Munchkin game comes from the pencil of award-winning comics illustrator and writer Art Baltazar. Fans of comics may know Baltazar for his independent work on The Big Amoeba and Patrick the Wolf Boy, and for his work on DC’s Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam! and Tiny Titans, for which he won a prestigious Eisner Award in 2011.

Players in Super Munchkin Guest Artist Edition are superheroes fighting the expertly drawn Slobbering Alien Horde, Office Supplies Man, The Fandom Menace, or Misunderstood Man. They get help from gear like their Heroic Angst, a Plot Device, or even a Continuity Error.

“Playing this game made me feel like a superhero,” said Steve Jackson Games’ Community Manager Hunter Shelburne. “I can’t actually fly yet, but I’m confident that if I play it a few more times, that will come.”

Alarm bells sound, but you don’t care: You keep piling wads of cash from the bank vault into your moneybag. Just a little more . . . The World’s Greatest Detective surely won’t arrive any time soon.

In Batman: The Animated Series Dice Game from Cryptozoic Entertainment and Steve Jackson Games, players attempt massive bank heists as classic Batman Super-Villains like The Joker, The Riddler, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy. How much loot can you grab before the alarm bells summon the Caped Crusader?

You can find it at your nearest local game store or select Hot Topic locations now!

This release comes from SJ Games and Cryptozoic Entertainment, in partnership with DC Comics, and it’s based on Batman: The Animated Series.

Roll and then re-roll the dice in this push-your-luck game – you want to roll moneybags, but you don’t want to roll Batman symbols. You are a criminal, after all! The evildoer with the most loot gets away; the Bat gets to the rest of ’em.
Each villain has a unique and diabolical ability. Customize your first roll as The Riddler, gain extra points as The Joker, grab more loot as Catwoman, or cleverly dodge Batman as Poison Ivy.

So if you plan to pick up this game, rest assured: Your evil plan is foolproof.

Munchkin Wonderland announced

Munchkin Deluxe Box

November 14th, 2016

A new Munchkin-inspired game due out this fall will let families with young kids explore Wonderland in a game that plays like a friendlier, simpler version of classic Munchkin.

In Munchkin Wonderland, players wander a whimsical landscape fighting enemies such as the the Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire Cat, or the Jabberwock. They’ll get help from classic characters such as the Dormouse, March Hare, and Alice herself using weapons like the Vorpal Blade and Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast.

Unlike traditional Munchkin games, when one player fights a monster, other players can help, but they can’t make the fight harder. The game ends when there’s no more treasure, and the winner is whoever’s loot is worth the most!

Munchkin Wonderland is based on Munchkin Treasure Hunt, the first Munchkin game geared toward kids, but Wonderland has 100% more Stolen Tarts, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and Croquet Mallets.
