The day of love is coming soon, and we know you’ve prepared something lavish for your loved one. Chocolate fountains, a dozen roses, rose fountains, a dozen chocolates; you know the drill.
But for those of us who aren’t ready, Steve Jackson Games’ Munchkin Valentine’s Day-themed accessories are available at your local game store and Warehouse 23 now! Because nothing says “I love you” like backstabbing your partner.
Our Munchkin Valentines are a great way of telling your favorite person they are loved, plus you can give them special Munchkin promos! (Or keep them to yourself. Why should they have all the fun?) If you’re looking for more accessories, the Munchkin Valentine’s Day Monster Box and Munchkin Playmat: The Flower of Love can give your typical Munchkin game a romantic flair. Plus, you get an extra-special rule with the playmat, and some additional holiday promos with the Monster Box, so there’s a lot of Valentine’s Day love to go around. And while you’re at it, Love Shark Baby and its precious pink pastels would be a great addition to your collection, in addition to being thematic.
You can find these, to fulfill all your Munchkin desires, at your friendly local game store or on Warehouse 23. Make sure you get them in time for Valentine’s Day; the couch is never as comfortable to sleep on as it is to sit on.

Triplanetary depicts ship-to-ship space combat in the Solar System using a vector movement system. It was designed by Marc “Traveller” Miller and first released in 1973. A second edition was released in 1981, but it’s been out of print since then.
Now, this long-lost game returns with a larger map and 5/8” counters! The new edition contains an alternative combat system for those who like more detailed space warfare, but the original rules are included and play just as well as they did in 1973.
Triplanetary is fun to play solo, and has scenarios for two, three, and four+ players. The quick, intuitive movement and combat rules are unchanged. All the scenarios from both editions have been collected, and new campaign rules added. This edition is lightly edited by Steve Jackson, who has been a Triplanetary fan since his college days.

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.

Engage in futuristic warfare with armored hovercraft, super heavy tanks, infantry, and giant cybernetic war machines called “Ogres”.

Hovercraft, tanks, marines, infantry, and the monstrous Ogres all take part in an endless world war. As a player, you take command and vie for supremacy on the irradiated battlefields of the future.
