The city of Salvatore is under attack by hoards of goblins and you have been summoned to protect the land. This should pose no problem for you and your party, who are known throughout the lands as the best goblin hunters around. To make things interesting it’s time to settle a little bet and see who is the best Goblin Hunter overall by being the first to capture 20 goblins.
Goblin Hunters is our second game, following on the heels of our first successful Kickstarter Alchemist Academy. Goblin Hunters is a fast paced push-your-luck style card game combined with set collection and a betting mechanic for 2 to 4 players and is played within 10 to 15 minutes. The Goblin Hunters base game comes with 4 different character cards to choose from, and more will be added as stretch goals are reached. Each character comes with their own special ability which can be used once per turn when they go hunting to give you an added advantage.
• Goblin search deck
• Individual character cards for each adventurer
• Character score piece for each adventurer
• Character betting token for each adventurer
• Map Score Board and Betting board
The Search deck contains 3 types of cards: Goblin Cards, Wound Cards and Goblin/Wound Cards. The aim of the game is to collect as many goblins as possible without taking too many wounds, while also trying to collect sets of goblins to gain extra bonuses.
This is not the only way to score bonus points, you can also bet on the results of the other adventurers, risking your hard earned goblin points for more bonus goblin points. It's a high risk with high rewards. So the next time you're in the tavern healing from your wounds and mouthing off about who is best Goblin Hunter, make sure you can put your money where your mouth is and bet on your fellow adventurers.
This is the perfect game to play while having a few laughs with some friends, between other games or while waiting for the rest of your party of adventurers to arrive for a big night of gaming.

Goblin Hunters has been in development for a little over a year. We have already invested in the design, layout and artwork which has been produced by Fábio Fontes. Now we need your help to get the first print run off the ground. We hope that with your help we will be able to produce this game with top quality components. Every dollar this project can raise will go towards increasing the print run and production quality of the game through stretch goals, while keeping the price of each game as low as possible. With your help we will be able to share this game, not just with backers, but with everyone.

Risks and challenges
This is our 2nd Kickstarter, and while there might be some small timing hiccups when it comes to producing anything (such as: production delays, shipping delays and/or customs delays), rest assured we have done our best to minimise this as far as possible. We are always happy to refund pledges if for some totally unforeseen reason the game can't be delivered at all. Since the game is 90% complete, including artwork, we don't believe that this is in the least bit likely. We have successfully delivered Alchemist Academy and from this production we have learnt a lot and have put a number of safe guards into place to minimise the chance of any delays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
