July 11, 2018: Steve Talks Munchkin Unicorns

Unicorn and Friends

There I was, minding my own business, when I thought of a cow joke.* Before I could even write it down, I thought of two more. By the time I got those three written down, another was banging at the rickety doors of my attention span. What got me onto a cow kick? I have no idea. But I eventually wrote down more than a dozen stupid cow jokes as Munchkin cards and sent them to Andrew.**

Fast forward a couple of months. I asked Andrew whether he'd been able to do anything with the cows. He said "We're putting them in with the unicorns."

Ooooooo-kay.

If you unpack his statement, it would go something like "We figured out that we can do less work AND bring the gamer's per-card price down if we combine two or three mini-packs into one set, so the Cows are going in with the Unicorns and a bunch of undead." In any case, that was how I found out about this set – I checked on my cows and that's where they had gone.

Now it's the Munchkin Unicorns and Friends Kickstarter, which is already going great guns. If you want a big batch of silly new Munchkin cards, please, go support. If you do NOT want more silly new Munchkin cards . . . I don't know what to say. I fear you are lost to me!

* Okay, it could be argued that cow jokes ARE business.

** Not that he had asked for them or anything. I just sent them.

*** There is no ***.

**** But there is a **** and this is it: Cow jokes are following me around. At LibertyCon, someone suggested an (arguably) cow joke. I dutifully made note. Maybe it will show up as part of this set, maybe later. But yes, I listen to fan submissions . . . . if they're ba-a-a-ad enough.*****

***** Now we're into the sheep jokes.
