GURPS players, we're happy to announce that both GURPS Spaceships
and How to Be a GURPS GM
are on our reprint schedule and being offered to your friendly local game store before the end of the year. These are two of the more in-demand titles, and we're fortunate enough that demand has grown to the point that we can offer both books to our distribution partners . . .

If you supported Munchkin Unicorns and Friends
on Kickstarter earlier this year, you'll be happy to hear that the expansion is now officially on the water and set to reach our fulfillment partner's warehouse around November 12.

I'm betting that if you're reading this, you like playing games. You're probably aware that cooperative games are a fast-growing segment of the tabletop gaming industry (although, in fairness, roleplaying games have been cooperative since the very first RPGs hit the market 40-plus years ago) . . .

After one week on Kickstarter, the Munchkin Steampunk: Girl Genius
project has already unlocked over a dozen stretch goals, adding a new Kill-O-Meter
, two new level counters, and more than 30 more cards to the set . . . and we still have almost two weeks before the project closes! If you've not yet joined in to help make this new Munchkin Steampunk
expansion a reality, please check out the project today, before it's too late and you miss out on the excitement . . .

If you missed Hall of Judgment
– the first third-party supplement for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game
– during its successful Kickstarter, the full-color softcover is now available from Warehouse 23 (joining the already available PDF). Announced on April 1, 2018, Hall of Judgment
was greeted with whispers of anticipation alongside concerns that SJG was teasing folks with a sure-to-be-a-joke offer of third-party support . . .
