Munchkin Digital Versions Coming Next Year

Posted on 28 Oct 2017

Beloved card game, Munchkin is getting the Asmodee Digital treatment. Sometime next year you’ll be kicking down doors, looting stuff, equipping far, far too much stuff and betraying your friends over a card that’ll let you sneakily win the game. Yup – it’s that Munchkin the ultra-fun game about being an OP adventurer will be getting a digital conversion to uh… to something? We’ve not got word on what platforms the game will be available on yet but you can probably place safe bets on it being available on PC and mobiles at the very least.

Stay tuned for more as we get it.


Official Press Release

Munchkin® To Be Adapted to Digital Platforms For the First Time in History by Asmodee Digital and Steve Jackson Games

The ultimate dungeon experience coming to digital platforms in 2018

Essen – October 27, 2017 – Asmodee Digital, a leader in digital board game entertainment today 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.

The program, on behalf of Steve Jackson Games, was brokered by Surge Licensing, Inc.

Munchkin is hilarious and fun, but I don't see how this will be anything more than a mobile game.
Unless they add something to it like an actual dungeon to explore rather than just flipping over cards.

Beware the dreaded Gazebo!

I'd be happy with just a straight, digital rendition of the game personally. It's good enough that it doesn't need anything else. But I can certainly agree, adding an actual dungeon would be nice. Or, something that could work really well, little cartoon caricature animations of the various classes kicking open doors and stuff
