I am pleased to report that this game delivers a goblinesque experience throughout its design, from spacecraft architecture through chores negotiations and, of course, salvage operations.

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.
-On the game page, the community copies section references "Til The End Of The Night." Is it meant to reference Space Goblins?
Prometo que assim que eu conseguir um trabalho, retornarei para compra-lo ^^
Use your shiny click clack rocks to appease the space goblins. Come for the junk, stay for the mayhem. And remember! For the junk, for the horde, for Vicheatya!
Great reason to stay! And the junk ain't bad either!
[CHEAT CODE UNLOCK : NIGHTMARE MODE]
Sometimes cheat codes make the game harder for some reason! In NIGHTMARE MODE the Space Goblins don't just crash into other ships, they crash into ships after a bad nights rest filled with not so great dreams, leaving them tired and deflated!! Your base Teethiness Score is 5 instead of 10, and if you run out of Teethiness all Goblins drop their Junk Dice expect for the lowest Junk Die. However, if you clear all rooms on a ship then double the amount of Junk Dice you gathered!
Goblins. In. Space. What are you waiting for? Get the game. Now!
Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, VICHEATYA
Along with the kind words, do I spot a....
[CHEAT CODE UNLOCK : GRADIUS?!]
You've unlocked a special ROOM for your Junk Ship: The Arcade! While you have the Arcade on your ship, all results on a Find Treasure roll to determine if you get treasure for free starts at 3+! However, on a 6 your Junk Ship is immediately attacked by a strange starfighter from a different universe! Make a roll for the ship as you would during the BOARD! phase at a DS 12!
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!
This is honestly one of my favourite games I've played in a very long time. It's the perfect kind of silly. <3
(And yes, VICHEATYA.)
Thank you so much!!! This is one of my favorite games I've made in a very long time :)
[CHEAT CODE UNLOCK : BIG HEAD MODE] The Space Goblins and their Junk Ship have GIANT (bulk) HEADS! All Rascal, Rude, Rough, and Tough Traits get a +1
Hey. Hey you, reading this, you should buy this game. It's awesome.
