Adorablins Storytelling Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Goblins. They're usually nasty, short, grumpy, green monsters you fight at low level in your RPGs. But what if they were instead just a bit more... adorable? Then, you'd get Adorablins. And then, you could play the storytelling card game that's all about these cute critters and the antics they get into. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Adorablins is a super cute and easy-to-learn storytelling game where you play as little Goblin-like creatures going on adventures in an endless variety of places. Everything you need to play is in a portable mint tin box that fits right in your pocket!

Adorablins is inspired by the Powered by the Apocalypse system used by tabletop RPGs like Apocalypse World, Monster Hearts, and Avatar Legends. The game works like a conversation where you all tell a story together.

You’ll choose a character to play as by picking an Adorablin card, then choose the adorable companion who will accompany you on your adventure through a magical portal. 

As players try to overcome challenges or do something risky, the Narrator will call for a dice roll. The player describes what their Adorablin is trying to do, chooses a skill that best fits their action, then they roll the dice to see how it goes!

Sessions tend to last between 30 minutes to a few hours and can easily be made to fit whatever time you have to fill. Dinner will be ready in twenty minutes? Grab Adorablins and play a quick game!

The campaign's more than 3x funded with 14 days left to go.
