Munchkin “Czar” and Line Editor Andrew Hackard stated, “Millions of kids in my generation grew up with the Turtles. I can’t tell you how thrilled we are to be working with IDW on this new game. Cowabunga!”

Munchkin is a dedicated deck card game created by Steve Jackson and published by Steve Jackson Games. The game is a comedic take on tabletop roleplaying games. It focuses on the “munchkin” player archetype, the type of player who is typically immature and playing only to “win” and to create the most powerful character possible. Munchkin is an Origin Award-winning game that has numerous thematic and licensed expansions.
