Wow! Look what we found when flipping through the latest issue of SciFi Now Magazine! We’re so proud that Dead Panic is getting so much love. You can read more about Dead Panic on its dedicated web page via the link above. If you don’t get SciFi Now magazine, buy it online or check your local bookstore for a copy.

Coming Fall 2014!
We are excited to announce our next new game: Munchkin Panic!
The Munchkin Monsters have invaded the Castle Panic Towers and are on the rampage! Anne-Marie De Witt has designed a crazy, clever, and addictive new game based on designs by Justin De Witt (Castle Panic) and Steve Jackson (Munchkin) in what is a semi-cooperative game of all-for-one meets all-for-me!
Players combine cards to hit Monsters before they destroy the Castle. Each defeated Monster becomes a Trophy and gives up its Treasure to the victor. If players work together to defeat the Monsters, they up their chances of survival and the player with the highest point count becomes the Master Munchkin. However, if players get too greedy, the Monsters will stomp the Castle to the ground while players are busy fighting over Treasure!
Two worlds collide in this game of hopeful, desperate, and addictive twists featuring the iconic Munchkin art by John Kovalic and the innovative play design of Fireside Games and Steve Jackson Games.
The game accommodates players ages 10 and up and can be played solo or with up to 6 players at a time. MSRP is $39.95.
Stay tuned for more details as the game enters its final development phases and goes into production. Be sure to ask your Friendly Local Game Store to carry this title and watch for it on shelves this Fall!

Our Chief Creative Officer and Grand Poobah, Justin DeWitt, recently took some time away from game development to have a chat with Rick Perez from Let’s Level Up podcast.
This session of the “Mutual Admiration Society” is chock full of geeky goodness as Rick and Justin discuss their shared love of games, Fireside Games’s South by Southwest tour of 2013, the benefits of your FLGS (Friendly Local Game Store), and the importance of being board game ambassadors to help grow the gaming community.
They also discuss the continuing success of Castle Panic (including the effects of being featured on TableTop) and what makes the other games in Fireside Games’s catalog unique and worth adding to your game collection.
You can listen to the entire conversation on Let’s Level Up.
Jeff McGinnis of the Toledo Free Press just posted a great article encouraging attendees of the upcoming BASHCon XXIX to try some new games, one of which just happens to be Castle Panic. As Jeff says, ““Castle Panic” provides just enough to bring genuine strategy to the process of playing, while being easy enough to understand that even the most casual of gamers can dive right [in].”
In describing BASHCon Jeff remarks, “One of the best parts about the event is the ability for players to share their passion for particular games with other gamers, maybe spreading their love for certain titles to new people and gaining a few new favorites of their own.”
That sounds like a great time to us! We hope all the attendees at BASHCon have a great time and may the dice always roll in your favor!
