Goblin Heist


Ever feel like you just want to snatch all the blankets and pillows you can find and hide in your own warm little nest? 

Goblin Heist is a chaotic adventure where 1-6 players take control of special goblin characters on a mission to steal as many cozy things as they can from the sleepy winter village of Little Humbleton. But be wary... the town has hired an adventurer to stop you! Can your goblin gang survive the cold, sneak into houses, steal the cozies, and escape before daybreak all without being caught?

Features include:
- Six playable goblins with unique abilities, including character card handouts
- A choice of four adventurers protecting the town, each adding their own difficulty and flavour to the game
- Variable weather conditions
- Pursuit mechanics
- Randomly generated challenges
- Cozies
- Stuffing sweets in your face

Prepare to be your tricksiest, most mischievous self in this "cozy heist" that is 100% delight. In "Goblin Heist," players sneak into a sleepy human village as... why, goblins, of course!

OBS_lysa.pngFeaturing goblin names like Stubtoe and Chunkz, the scene is set for a silly roleplaying romp, and the clock is ticking. You'll find fun mechanics and rules, such as an Adventurer Pursuit meter, as the party scrambles to steal as many cozy items as they can. Will you be the one to bring home a pillow, a blanket, or shiny new mittens? Kai Linder's adventure is pure fun to read and promises a session (and a goodie bag) filled to bursting with laughs and ridiculous antics.

Hey, any thoughts on maps to use for this. I did not notice there was none when I bought it.
Still looks super fun.

Hi there! I wouldn't say a map is a necessity, but any wintery town map is helpful in giving the players visual reference to choose how they want to tackle the adventure.

Intriguing!!Does this stack up with Sage of the Goblin Horde at all, or is it a completely fresh baked take on goblins? I'm rather hoping that I could integrate it with SotGH or etc.

I'm not familiar with that product, Goblin Heist was created as a free standing adventure. If you'd like to attempt to hack it you are of course welcome!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
