Munchkin CCGAt Gen Con, Steve Jackson Games was showing off the first few releases for the highly-anticipated Munchkin Collectible Card Game, and shared release details with ICv2.

Designed by Eric M. Lang and Kevin Wilson, the game will launch in February 2018, with three two-deck Starter Sets (Wizard / Bard, Ranger/ Warrior, and Cleric /Thief) and the Munchkin Collectible Card Game Booster Packs. The Starter Sets each contain two different Hero Decks, two level counters, 40 tokens, one die, two Run Away markers and a Booster Pack.  The set includes everything two players need to fight, right out of the box.  MSRP is $24.95.

The Munchkin Collectible Card Game Booster Packs each include 12 random cards, including at least one rare card, so players can build unique decks to unleash on opponents.  Each Booster Pack includes 12 cards, and each Booster Display contains 24 packs.  MSRP is $3.95 a pack.
