STEVE JACKSON GAMES TO DEVELOP NINJA BURGER CARD GAME

BURLINGAME, Calif., Sep 20, 2002 -- aethereal FORGE and Steve Jackson Games
humbly announce the upcoming release of the unworthy Ninja Burger Card Game.

Based on the glorious Ninja Burger web site created by the honorable
aethereal FORGE, the card game will be designed by Steve Jackson (who is
already making a nuisance of himself around the office with Ninja jokes). He
modestly hopes to repeat the amazing success of Munchkin and Star Munchkin.
He further hopes to have you your burgers and fries in 30 minutes, WHEREVER
you are, as he does not consider himself worthy of seppuku and would type
even less skilfully without his full complement of fingers.           
           
The Ninja Burger Card Game is tentatively set for a Spring 2003 release.
