You are all Goblins, congratulations! 

You are also all barreling through space in a ship made of junk and scrap, how lucky! Your goal: to make it to Junktopia, the rogue planet in the middle of space, a utopia for the Goblins, with your ship intact and as much Junk as you can to further its beauty!

Space Goblins! is a HIGH CHAOS AND TRULY OUTRAGEOUS RPG meant for 2-5 players with rotating referee play and an emphasis on wild Goblin-created mayhem!

Use any interlocking plastic building block collection, such as Lego, as your Junk collection, building up and breaking down your Junk Ship as you play with all the other Goblins!

  • Create Goblins that embody the most Goblin of stats: Scrapper, Tinkerer, Rascal, and Rude! 
  • Collaboratively create your Junkship that embodies the most Goblin of design elements: Rough, Tough, Scoot, and Shoot! 
  • Roll an unnecessary amount of d8s together to figure out what ship you crash into when looking for Junk!
  •  Set Game Length of 3-5-8 rounds allows you to play a short campaign of Space Goblins! sessions, troupe style play throughout several journeys to Juntktopia, or a very quick and fun one shot!

Space Goblins! is a hack of Tunnel Goons for the Goon Jam


Space Goblins! Post-Kickstarter

Space Goblins! just finished its run on Kickstarter as a part of Zine Quest! The Kickstarter was to bring an illustrator (Glo Wan), a layout artist (Jamila R. Nedjadi) and an editor (Tyler Crumrine) onto the project to make Space Goblins! as great a product as it can be! Those who helped back the Kickstarter are getting the BEAUTIFUL and GOBLIN version in either PDF or Physical Zine form!

But don't worry, even if you missed the Kickstarter, the new version will be available here as soon as it's complete, and in the mean time you're more than welcome to buy the current, fully playable, version here and get the updated game when it hits! 

Proceeds from Space Goblins! post-Kickstarter will continue to help fund the project with security over International Shipping, Additional Zine Printing, and the hard work by all the collaborators!

Space Goblins is a hectic, fun, spacepunk game about foraging for junk while you hurtle onwards towards utopia.

It's 10 pages with clean, readable layout, and while there aren't any interior illustrations, they seem to be planned for future implementation.

Mechanically, there are *lots* of tokens. Goblin HP is tokens. Spare scrap / ship HP is tokens. You may want a whole bucket of legos for that scrap, and people's quantities of tokens change pretty regularly. If you're someone who likes amassing and spending a small horde of stuff as you play, this is going to be super mechanically engaging for you.

Additionally, there's a very condensed structure to play, and the game moves you back and forth between exploring other people's ships / space objects and recuperating on your own ship pretty regularly. As a GM, you *really* don't have to worry about coming up with compelling hooks in Space Goblins, because the party just crashes into them repeatedly. It's a huge breath of fresh air, and it does a lot to support the fun, chaotic, pulp tone of the game.

And speaking of GMing, the GM role is designed to be flexible, and any person can GM a boarding action. The same person can GM the whole game, or the GM can rotate every time the party disembarks their ship. No one's forced to GM, there's no uncertainty over who's refereeing what, and anyone who's enthusiastic can take the helm for an adventure.

Overall, Space Goblins is a phenomenal pick-up-and-play game. If you like stuff that's short, fun, and pulpy, get this.


Minor Issues:

-On the game page, the community copies section references "Til The End Of The Night." Is it meant to reference Space Goblins?

This game does some really fun stuff to encourage collaboration and creativity wrapped in a silly, high octane package. This is a perfect game for goblins because it’s ready to ask the hard questions like: which of us forgot to do our chores?

Aw dang, it really is a perfect goblin game isn't it? Thank you so much!


[CHEAT CODE UNLOCK : TURBO MODE] Unlocks the Homing Turbo Boosters for your Junk Ship! Find bigger ships faster and ram into them to get their junk! Start the game with 5d8 for each player when rolling on for the CRASH! Phase instead of 2d8!
