Is “Munchkined” a word? No matter, because there is fantastic news for fans of Critical Role, the popular roleplaying web series. Usaopoly (The Op) has announced that it will be releasing a Critical Role version of Steve Jackson Games’ Munchkin.
MUNCHKIN: Critical Role will feature characters and lore from the series in the classic Munchkin style where players adventure together, backstabbing each other, stuffing their pockets full of loot, and racing to see who can reach level 10 first.
“We’re thrilled to see the world and characters of the Mighty Nein come to life in card game form with Munchkin, and we can’t wait to share it with the Critters. We wouldn’t be here today without them,” said Ben Van Der Fluit, Vice President of Business Development for Critical Role.
“Fast-playing and silly, Munchkin appeals to a very wide audience,” says Phil Reed, CEO of Steve Jackson Games. Munchkin launched nearly 20 years ago and claims a prestigious Origins Award for Best Traditional Card Gamebel. “In this version of Munchkin, fans will compete to grab magic and kill monsters specific to Critical Role, such as Lorenzo and Avantika.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to release this game to fans of Critical Role and Munchkin and meet an ever-growing demand for both franchises,” says Heather Campbell, Vice President of Sales at The Op.
