About

"Great Gobbo Grab" is the first solo-release tabletop game from independent game developer "Gooder Games!" Check out all of the details below in our various accurately labeled sections!

  • What is Great Gobbo Grab?
  • What's in the box?!?
  • Add-ons... more stuff and things
  • Pics and Video!

STRETCH GOALS!

  • If we are FULLY FUNDED, then Tim will bust out some amusing individual art for each and every unique card!
  • We have more in mind after that... More Gobbos, alternative rules, alternative art, and maybe even a Kickstarter Exclusive Expansion!

Gobbos are a cantankerous and tribal lot to whom the words “compromise,” “agreement,” and “community” basically have no meaning. To maintain at least a nominal sense of order between the squabbling gobbo clans, the Great Gobbo Grab was established to “fairly” and “objectively” determine which clan leader gets to rule over all Gobbodom.

Great Gobbo Grab is a chaotic game of strategic gambling and chance. Represent your Gobbo Clan and gain dominion over your rivals by participating in a race to the finish to grab some treasure. Oh, there’s just one slight complication- that treasure is guarded by a foul-tempered dragon with no desire to part with a single piece of his ill-gotten gains under any circumstances.

Luckily for you lot, he spends most of his time sleeping, so it’s just a simple matter of sneaking past him and stealing a piece… after completing a frantic foot race against your rivals… and fighting with each other… and probably making a lot of noise… 

Just run as fast as you dare, trip up your rivals, and don’t wake the dragon! …yeah, good luck with that…  

  • Great Gobbo Grab combines fast-paced basic game-play, nuanced layers of additional strategy, tongue-in-cheek humor, and a unique, bright, and colorful cartoon art style!  
  • The game is suitable for all ages since it combines basic concepts with a healthy portion of luck and strategy.  
  • The game is great for younger audiences since it can help with learning basic math, probability, and combination tactics. 
  •  It's great for the older crowd, gamers, and non-gamers alike, because it is incredibly easy to learn, massively fun to play, and you will almost never experience the same game twice. 

This project has been an undertaking of love with a happy helping of hope. We have been working on and designing games for quite awhile and we've decided to take the plunge and make a true career out of doing what we truly enjoy.

"Great Gobbo Grab" is officially a "finished" game. This Kickstarter will be the funding for the first major printing of the game as well as some additional expenses for advertising and establishing our business so we can come out with a whole lot more GOODER games.

 So you actually want to know what you are getting? Well sheesh... you can't just trust us that it will be awesome? Okay, here you go!

 Let's start off with "What are add-ons?" I know that I was pretty confused when I first heard about them. Add-ons are basically your ability to buy MORE STUFF with your order. Start off by choosing a basic reward you would like and pledging the amount required for that reward. After that return to the main page, your Back This Project button should now read Manage Your Pledge.Click on it, keep your reward the same, and add the additional amount for any of the additional items you would like. When we are fully funded and the project is done you will receive a survey that will allow you to select your extra "Add Ons". Sooo here we go...

Risks and challenges

The risks here are incredibly minimal (except for perhaps the fallout of telling our loved ones we are "professional game designers" if we are fully funded). The risks are so low because our game is fully designed, templated, and ready to go... we just need that first printing cost covered as well as a little buffer for any unanticipated expanses.

Shipping will be no problem, since we are working with a manufacturing company already. We also will offer international shipping once we finish the logistics of it.
