munchkin steamMunchkin Steampunk Deluxe adds gears, goggles, and steam-powered robots to the backstabbing and goofy humor of the long-lived card game Munchkin, a game in which you kick down doors, battle monsters, gain treasure, and try to reach level ten before anyone else.

Munchkin Steampunk Deluxe is a standalone game, but it can be integrated with any Munchkin game or expansion.


Available for demo games at Gen Con 2015 ahead of its release in October 2015.

Why this?  I mean what makes another Munchkin game special?  For me it’s very much about the art.  I’m very curious to see what they are going to do with steampunk in Munchkin style.

Car Wars: The Card Game is the game of car-to-car combat. In the near future, combat between armed and armored cars will be an arena sport. You shoot at the other cars, trying to destroy their tires and armor. The last player with an operating car is the winner!

In each battle, or duel, the players play cards to damage each others’ cars. When one side of a player’s car is breached (the armor on that side is destroyed), the car’s driver may be attacked! If a car’s driver is disabled and unable to operate his car, the player who disabled him scores a kill. (Note that the driver will be back for the next duel! Only the car is killed.) When only one car is left (or when time runs out), the duel is over. New duels continue until one player has scored 60 points to become an Ace!

Car Wars: The Card Game is fully compatible with Battle Cattle: The Card Game! Combine the two… take your hot rod out to the pasture and go gunning for Bossy…but remember, Bossy shoots back!


I like Car Wars, but the rules are long and very unforgiving.  That makes getting new players into the game more difficult than it is for other games.  I hope that the card game captures the flavor but simplifies the system for a faster game and learning experience.
