Asmodee Digital, a leader in digital board game entertainment today announced that the multi-million selling dungeon adventure card game, Munchkin, created and published by Steve Jackson Games Incorporated, will be reimagined for digital platforms, under license. The upcoming digital adaptation will be available next year.

Designed by Steve Jackson and illustrated by John Kovalic, Munchkin is the hit card game about dungeon adventure. Friends compete to kill monsters and grab hilarious magic items, like the Horny Helmet, Boots of Butt-Kicking, Staff of Napalm, and Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment.

“We are thrilled to partner with Asmodee Digital for the first adaptation of Munchkin to digital platforms," said Phil Reed, CEO of Steve Jackson Games. "Munchkin has become an evergreen game over the years and we believe the time has come to offer fans around the world a truly innovative experience.”

The program, on behalf of Steve Jackson Games, was brokered by Surge Licensing, Inc.
