Steve Jackson Games Knows More Than One Way to Beat a Dead Horse

Earlier this month, we previewed a new card from Munchkin 8: Half Horse, Will Travel, but that's not all that Steve Jackson Games had up its Munchkin-publishing sleeve. In fact, it's not even the only equine-focused set to be released this month.

Next up is The Good, The Bad, and the Munchkin 2: Beating a Dead Horse, the first expansion for the western-themed Munchkin set that debuted back in 2007. Prepare yourself for a second helping of monsters, loot, instants, steeds, and cowboy puns.

What do you get when you tack a pun onto an idiom? Two levels, and a new Munchkin card.

The most significant gameplay element introduced with this set is the new "Calvary" class. If a player with this class assists in defeating a monster but demands no treasure in return, they'll gain a level as well as the active player.

The Good, the Bad, and the Munchkin 2: Beating a Dead Horse ships this week or can be ordered directly from Steve Jackson Games. The expansion set includes 56 total new cards (30 doors and 26 treasures), and will retail for $10.95.
