Leading into next week’s Gen Con. Steve Jackson Games have announced an exclusive partnering with Target for Munchkin Oz. Combining the whimsy of Baum’s classic creations with the backstabbing zaniness of Munchkin is sure to create another classic Munchkin game for gamers of all ages. Munchkin Oz will be available in stores, and on the Target website in early August. If the pattern of Munchkin Legends ends up being followed for this, expect a general release for Munchkin Oz next year.
Munchkin Hipsters is a 30 card expansion for your Munchkin games that will add an organic and locally sourced, artisan experience to your Munchkin games. This expansion will be available exclusively through the Think Geek website.
