Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! You can still order your Groblins™ Token Deck, individual cards, playmats, and more at http://www.groblins.com. But don’t miss out a second time! Groblins merchandise is only available while supplies last.Last updated:
Kickstarter is a crowdfunding website in which creators like us present our project to the world in hopes of getting enough funding from backers like you to make it a reality. In exchange for your pledged amount of money, you receive “rewards.” In our case, that reward is the Groblins Token Pack or any of the other rewards you choose, such as playmats, foil token packs, uncut sheets, etc.
You will need a credit card to pledge. Your credit card is not charged until the Kickstarter campaign ends and ONLY if our funding goal has been met. If we do not reach our funding goal, Kickstarter does not charge your credit card. A few weeks after the campaign ends, Kickstarter releases your charged funds to us. We can then move ahead with manufacturing the token packs and other rewards.Last updated:
A card token is a marker that a player uses during gameplay to represent something, such as a creature, that isn’t already represented by a normal card in the game.Last updated:
The short answer:
Groblins are mischievous, troublemaking little creatures, a hybrid of gremlin and goblin, created by Jeff Miracola.
The long answer:
Groblins appear to be a mix of goblins and gremlins. They kept themselves hidden for untold centuries, yet for some reason chose to reveal their existence to Fantasy Artist Jeff Miracola. Very late one cold winter night, after Jeff had fallen asleep watching Game of Thrones, the groblins did not scramble away as usual when he stirred but instead allowed him to see them playing Mario Kart on his video game console. Jeff assumed he was dreaming, but the encounter would soon explain some of the greater mysteries of his life.
The miscreant creatures were in fact the reason behind so many disconcerting moments at home: misplaced objects, creaking sounds at night that he’d attributed to the house “settling,” and missing food, which he swore to his wife he hadn’t selfishly devoured on a late-night Ninja Lizards movie binge.
Perhaps it was their interest in the strange, fantastical worlds of Jeff’s artistic creations or perhaps it was simple curiosity at a human that seemed to never sleep, but, either way, the vexing little beasts teased Jeff with occasional sightings and regular, reckless pranks. Jeff has learned to keep the fire extinguisher handy.
To the best of Jeff’s reckoning, Groblins are perpetually playful, highly curious, sometimes sneaky, and always instigating little mischief-makers who are capable of both great affection and wanton destruction. At one moment they might coddle the kitten and at the next undermine the house’s foundation walls. Their unpredictability is at once their most charming and dangerous trait. Nothing is safe, not even fellow Groblins. Their most irksome trait? Their ability to inflame any situation, even if the blowout requires explosives. Groblins are therefore to be considered armed and dangerous. These loose cannons are now unleashed on an otherwise unsuspecting world, and Jeff doesn’t know how to stop them.
One tip that just may save your house and home: Groblins love marshmallows, to both eat and wear as hats. Keep a ready supply so they don’t turn their sights on you.Last updated:
What are those symbols on your tokens? You know, the wings symbol above the power/toughness on the Angel card?
Those symbols represent the token mechanic. A wings symbol stands for “Flying”. An open eye symbol stands for “Vigilance.” This is our way of adding mechanics to the tokens without following the verbiage of any particular game; this makes your token more universal.Last updated:
Why do you have strange names for card tokens such as Elder Scion, Elder Spawn, Robot, and Sapling? Aren’t those wrong?
Wizards of the Coast has some IP, or Intellectual Property, in the names of some of their creature types. We have no interest in infringing on the IP of another company. For that reason, we have made the following name changes to certain tokens:
Eldrazi Scion is now Elder Scion
Eldrazi Span is now Elder Spawn
Myr is now Robot
Saproling is now SaplingLast updated:
Extra “normal” tokens will be $1 each, foil tokens $2 each, plus additional postage for international mailing. Decide how many extra tokens you want and add up the total. Then increase your pledge by that amount. When the campaign ends, we will send you a Backer Survey to find out which extra tokens you would like. Please take a look at the Add-Ons section to verify if you need to include additional money for shipping.Last updated:
During this Kickstarter, it is unlikely we’ll add extra tokens. As you can see, Jeff has a lot of artwork yet to complete for the remaining tokens in the Groblins Token Pack. First and foremost, this is his main focus. However, you never know what could happen. If Jeff gets all the Token Pack tokens done and the Kickstarter does well, we will certainly consider creating additional tokens. If you have ideas for future tokens, please feel free to mention it in the comments section.Last updated:
If you want two Groblin playmats, pledge for the Token Pack + Groblins Playmat reward level. Then change your total manually by adding another $30 to it (plus the additional postage listed if you require international mailing). We will send you a Backer Survey at the end of the campaign to ask you which two playmats you would like.
If you want one of Jeff’s limited Magic: the Gathering playmats (for example: Bubbling Beebles) and a Groblins playmat, pledge for the Token Pack + Bubbling Beebles Playmat reward level. Then change your total manually by adding another $30 to it (plus the additional postage listed if you require international mailing). We will send you a Backer Survey at the end of the campaign to ask you which Groblins playmat you would like.Last updated:
Whoa, whoa, whoa, slow your roll a bit. We’re excited about the Groblins, too. We want these cute and rude little biscuits running amuck all over our house and yours, but one thing at a time. If this current campaign is a success, we can talk about taking over the world Groblin-style later on. We LOVE your enthusiasm though.Last updated:
No, not during this Kickstarter campaign. To keep things simple and manageable, Jeff will sign your entire Token Pack if you pledge at that reward level. It would be too difficult to organize the varied signature needs of all our backers. We hope you understand. Thank you.Last updated:
At this time, Kickstarter does not accept pledges through Paypal. They only accept credit card payments. How this has worked for us on past Kickstarter campaigns is that backers without a credit card have had a friend or family member who does have a credit card be the one to place the pledge. If you do this, you need to make efforts to let us know because we will be receiving the contact information (email and mailing address) of your friend or family member, not you. That means we might send your rewards to them unless you tell us otherwise.
To keep this Kickstarter organized and manageable, we will not be taking pledges outside of the Kickstarter system. We hope you understand. Thank you.Last updated:
Our plan is to deliver all rewards to backers in December 2017. At the end of this campaign, we will be sending out Backer Surveys to the email address you have listed with Kickstarter. We collect your mailing address and any other information we may need from you, such as your preferred add-ons, etc. It is extremely important that you fill out your Backer Survey in a timely manner if you hope to receive your rewards in a timely manner.Last updated:
Our main focus is on having a successful Kickstarter campaign. Without that, we will not be able to make the tokens available elsewhere. So if you want this product to become a reality, we hope you will consider pledging during the campaign. That being said, if the campaign is successful, we will make every effort to have the tokens for sale at http://www.groblins.com and certainly entertain the idea of making them available through retailers. But that’s another project for another day :-)Last updated:
