AUSTIN, Texas (November 4, 2016) – A new Munchkin-inspired game 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.

In addition to new Door, Treasure, and Seal cards, Munchkin Apocalypse Guest Artist Edition features 12 player standies and a circular board unique to this version!

I’m actually pretty excited about this game, here is the manufacturer description.

 

Our favorite party game is all grown up. Telestrations After Dark is the adults only version of the #1 LOL party game Telestrations. Draw what you see then guess what you saw for hilarious, weird, irresponsible and just plain wrong outcomes. Telestrations After Dark is “adults only” miscommunication at its best!

Ages 17+ | 4-8 Players | MSRP: $29.95

 

With that said I’ve been playing Telestrations pretty much since it’s conception.  I can only imagine what an adult version means.  I’m sure it’s done with great taste and style.  I find this to be one of the most intriguing releases of the year.  I only hope that as a reinvented game it doesn’t stray from it’s origin too much!
