FlamesRising.com is excited to announce that all this week we are featuring exclusive previews, essays, reviews and more from Steve Jackson Games.
SJ Games Week begins today and ends on Friday, July 29th, 2011.
In addition to its selection of GURPS hobby games, Steve Jackson Games publishes dice, card and board games, too. Titles like Munchkin are heavily inspired by geek culture and often have a comedic tone. In the past, we have offered some coverage by offering a Munchkin Zombies preview, The Stars Are Right review, Munchkin Cthulhu review, Cthulhu Dice review and a Munchkin Bites 2: Pants Macabre review.
One of the other items Steve Jackson Games produces is toys, like their series of Chibithulhu plushies, which are guaranteed to induce a scream or two. Most recently, Steve Jackson Games won an 2011 Origins Award for their Cthulhu Dice Bag, offered in green and the limited edition purple.
This week also marks a special date in the history of the company, for Steve Jackson Games is gearing up to celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the Munchkin CCG. The Munchkin Czar himself, Andrew Hackard, will judge this contest and prizes will be awarded by Steve Jackson Games.
