About this project
In Gob’Z’Heroes – The Game, is a 2-players* game where goblins clash loudly with face slaps, trip each other up, throw grenades and use quite unorthodox technics such as « Acid Fart » or « Good Wallop »… and a good amount of luck. You will head the Gob’z’heroes or the Gob’villains, and try to ridicule the rival crew !!
Everything is allowed, including the most ludicrous attacks…
*Up to 4 players with additional tiles or a second Core Game
GOB'Z'HEROES - The Game comes with :
- 7 HD resin Miniatures : Gob'Capone, Gob'Zombi, Gob'Joker, Gob'Jones, Double'Gob'7, Gob'inator & Gob'Monkey
(All miniatures are coming with clear plexiglass bases)
- 1 FOAM TRAY with 28 Gob'z and 2 Trolls Slots
- 4 Double-sided printed Game Board Tiles
- 30 Combos Cards
- 8 Gob'jectives
- 25 Tickles Tokens
- 4 Zombi Tokens
- 3 Foam Dices
- 15 Stuff cards
- 1 Rulebook
- + All Box Updates ........
We wanted to notify that all cards are compatible with standard sleeves and core box will be compatible with cards with sleeves too !
Be the first to score the number of Victory Points defined at the beginning of the game, as simple as that ... !!
A Gob’z Crew is made of 3 to 6 Gob’ (maximum 1 Troll)
Gob’z are scattered and noisy little people. It always requires a certain amount of authority to keep them focused and to have a good cohesion in the Crew. This is represented by Charisma (see characteristics below, in Gob’z Profile).
HOW MANY PLAYERS ?
The Core box is designed for a 2 players game. You can play up to 4 players with another Core box using the other gaming tiles and miniatures from this second box (the rules for a 4 players game are included).
The characteristics of each Gob’ are listed on his profile card. The power of each ability varies from 0 to 12 (before any modification by cards or stuff).
Rations : It shows a Gob’s appetite. It will require more Charisma to lead Gob’z with bigger appetite.
Charisma : Charisma is a Gob’s ability to lead the Crew. Higher is the value, easier it will be to lead the others. This characteristic tells you how many Gob’z you will be able to play every turn.
Movement : this characteristic represents a Gob’s velocity. Usually for Gob’z, smaller is faster, and bigger is slower !
Physical Ability : it indicates the strenght (attack) and stamina (defence) of a Gob’, therefore his ability to give and receive blows. Higher is the value, bigger are the slaps and harder it will be to knock him down !
THE GAME BOARD
The game is played on a 10 by 14 squares board game. You'll find four "7 by 5 squares" tiles (printed both sides) in the box, allowing you to create various game boards for two players. The game board contains two levels, an upper one and a lower one, which are going to restrain movements and attacks.
The box contains everything for a 2 players game, if you want to play with 3 or 4 players, you just need to add two tiles from a second box, to make a wider game tray of 15 by 14 squares, giving you even more possibilities...!
The game gets to a higher dimension with the Stuff cards ! You can use them to boost your attacks or protect your crew. Some of the Gob'z start the game with Stuff cards.
The more Gob'z you have in your collection, the more Stuff cards you will access to during your games.
For the big fans of organized play area, the cards have been designed to fit under the Gob'z profile cards allowing you to see everything needed to play it all the time.
In Gob'z'heroes - The Game, players take control of heroes (Yes, Gob'z can be heroes too...), and sometimes, even heroes need a little help to take over some difficult situations.
The Combo cards are made to create unique games. The main box comes with 30 of them (2 copies of each 15 different Combo cards) playable by both players.
For each "hero" comes an "heroic actions", combo cards guarantee this in many ways !!
Combo Cards can be used at ANYTIME. Yes, really, anytime !!!
You will find a Rulebook following the link below. Please note that it is a beta version and some details and design will changes or are missing...

"MOR'Gob Box" includes :
It is the best way to collect some new amazing Gob'z, immediately from the start of the campaign !
THE "WTF BOX"
The "WTF Box" includes some ideas we couldn't put on the Core Game ! We choose to share with you our stupids things (Yes yes, we are so generous ^^). From the start to the end of the campaign, each pledges contains a "WTF Box", exclusively during the Kickstarter ! The "WTF Box" will never be release as an add-on...
During the first campaign, we created 16 Gob'z and 2 Trolls. You can get them here during the campaign. You just have to add the value of the chosen Gob'z to your Pledge level.
You will get all the combo and equipment cards associated with the chosen Gob'z. If you participate to this campaign and already have the Gob'z from the first campaign, just contact us and we will send you the cards.
Other Add-ons !!
The miniatures represent the Gob'z you play during the game. They are 28mm scale miniatures designed and sculpted to the finest level of details to give you the best gaming experience ever !
There are 2 kinds of miniatures in Gob'z'heroes : Gob'z and Trolls. Of course, there are more Gob'z than Trolls. Trolls are bigger and stronger, but much more stupid and (luckily ?) uncommons.
All the miniatures are in resin. Nowadays, plastic is cheaper but we wanted to offer you the best miniatures we could and sticked to what our first-day fans liked : quality ! We will do our best to propose you an amazing gaming experience and material and we will make that our gold standard !
To uphold that, the Core Game box will come with 2 levels, one for the gaming material and one with a foam tray for the miniatures who can contain 28 Gob'z and 2 Trolls. More than enough space to play with your friends and safely transport all your beloved miniatures !
All miniatures will be delivered with clear plexiglas bases.
You can see on this picture the scale with a comparison of a Space Marine from Games Workshop Citadel Miniatures. It reveal all the incredible details !
PAINT THEM !

THEY SPEAK ABOUT GOB'Z'HEROES
"Needless to say, Gob’z’Heroes was an unexpected and exciting find for me. I hit that pledge button like the fist of an angry hammer’gob. It’s a game I can’t help but like. It’s fast and furious and wacky, like a nitro fueled scalextric set. It’s a breath of fresh air in a world of serious Space Marines, Storm Troopers, zombies and everything in-between that also provides an exceptional set of miniatures. If all that isn’t enough to score them a Mister Jamie Approved then I don’t know what is. So go ahead Boyz, you’ve earned it! "
"L'aspect assumé, "foutrak" et défouloir d'un "petit" jeu laisse place à un plaisir ludique presque régressif : "S'en mettre plein les dents avec humour, en jubilant ou râlant sur les dés, et en se reparlant des grands retournements de situations de la partie après que celle-ce se soit terminée"
We have a heart partner in this project, both for their advices than their help with communication : Devil pig Games. We are huge fans of their game Heroes of Normandy and Shadows of Normandy so that we were not able to prevent us from integrating into Cross Over Gob'z'heroes a figurine: a DEVIL PIG TROLL (To unlock as Stretch'gob).
Thanks to them !!
WHO ARE WE ?
GAMES AND MINIATURES BY SKULLS
Skulls Mini is a french company specialized in collectible miniatures since 2013. We decided last year to create a game division in our company and start designing board games for players. A lot of our customers asked for that in the past so we asked ourselves: why not ?
During the last year, a lot of people started working with us, all of them professionals, to make this project a reality.
Main Leader and Co-author : Antoine ROFFÉ
"Oh sh*t, I need to speak about me"... So, I am "Antonioooh" online, and called Antoine ROFFÉ (in real life !). What is my job in this project ? Well, not so much ... :) I was mostly very lucky to have the chance to work with all of these people !! Surely I am behind the project, by the countless hours devoted, but without the investment of all, this project could not have been carried out ...
Lead Game Designer : Fabien FRIESS
Fabien is a French Game Designer graduated from Isart Digital Paris (The French Video Game School). He won with his students team a gameplay price for his prototype "Color Warz" in 2006. He teached boardgame design at Isart Digital during 2 years, and then created and managed FLUO Games during 3 years to publish his first game : Color Warz Paint Brawl with Nicolas Tézé with 25 high detailed resin miniatures. Their second game, Color Warz : Dark Threat, was not published yet. Now, he presents you his third game : Gob'z'Heroes created with Antoine Roffé.
Illustration Leader : Kevin DE CASTRO
Well... Kevin is a french artist who likes to draw since his childhood and naturally oriented his studies and his life in this direction. After a graphic arts school, many moons ago, he decided to learn 3D animation at ISART Digital in Paris. As he also likes video games, he chose to combine both and worked in video game industrie as a game artist for few years and started by studying 3D Game Art for one year at ISART Digital again where he met Fabien and also worked with him on the Color Warz games. After having worked for few years as 3D artist, he decided to let 3D for a moment aside for good old 2D which brought him to work on Gob'z'Heroes and has a lot of fun to imagine and draw all these characters :)
Sculpture Leader : Stephane CAMOSSETO
I've been a miniature sculptor for a few years, working as freelancer for company like Smartmax, Mierce and Infamy. Last year, I had the chance to work on the really cool gob’zheroes and it’s a pleasure again to sculpt a few cool gobz and bigger trolls, my main goal was to achieve expressive and funny characters. I hope players and painters will enjoy the miniatures as much as I did !!
Sculptors : Tom Hugues, MIKH, Valentin Zak, Patrick Masson, Benoit Cauchies

Please take note :
Based on various kickstarter experience, we will be charging shipping after the Kickstarter concludes, based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this via a pledge manager after the campaign ends. This is so we can be fair to all our backers as shipping is rarely one size fits all, and also give you more stretch goodies and possibly a choice of carrier options.
Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a standard game package (4kg volumetric weight). Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.
The shipping costs are estimate for a 2kg parcel. It can be change if more Strech'Gob'z and add on will be unlocked.
USA : 25€-30€ to most states. $50 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.
CANADA : 20€-30€ to most cities.
LATIN AMERICA : 25€-30€ to most countries.
ASIA : 20€ to China and Hong Kong. 30€ to most other countries (we can't predict an estimate cost to Malaysia).
OCEANIA : 30€-35€ to Australia. 30€ to New Zealand.
AFRICA : 35€
15,00 € : France
20,00 € : UE
25,00 € : Rest of the Europe
Rewards bound for the EU will ship from within the EU.
No extra customs charges ! For US and Canada the Legion of the Cow is shipping "friendly" for us and guarantee quality and no high additional charges...
Resin vs. plastic production
Be assured that the resin casting will not take longer than any other protocole. Our caster, GRX Creation, a highly and famous French professional will give his best to assure our backers the best quality and delivery schedule.
Risks and challenges
Our biggest risk, in case of success, is to be delayed.
We have proven our ability to be on time during our last campaign. In this, we guarantee to do our best to uphold them, again.
What could slow us down?
- Illustrations: in case of a huge success of the project, it is possible that the design of new components (like a new map) takes time.
- Sculpture: We are fortunate to work with several active sculptors who always guarantee us the best time schedule. Again, in case of success, some delays can be possible to sculpt all the new miniatures but we have already taken all the necessary precautions to avoid that.
We have currently no concern with the time of manufacturing the game box in China because it's already ready for production. The company "What'z Game" will take care of this production. They proved their professionalism on many references.
It is very important that our project can live after the campaign. And the role of the community participating in this campaign is central !
If successful we will create a platform dedicated to the game (scenario, campaign etc) and creation of more Gob'z.
Every 2 months we will reveal a new Gob, and we will do our best for you to participate in these creations by a vote system!
In every aspects, the challenges will only get more exciting in case of a huge success :)
Now our fate is in your hands ^^
