Description

The Trollsome game of Bodybuilding. Trolls are stupid! I mean , really, really thick. Quite often, they leave bits of themselves lying around in troll holes. A troll almost never notices he has lost a leg or even his head! He soon grows a new one anyway, so he doesn't care two hoots! Players move their Gobbos around the board, trying to collect enough "Troll Bitz" to make 2 complete trolls.

From a line of 4 kids games Games Workshop Ltd. released so that the kids would have something to play while you and your mates played Warhammer. Each included a Trollish Tunes tape which included silly songs sung by Trolls.

One of four Games Workshop "Troll Games" including, Hungry Trolls and the Gobbos, Trolls in the Pantry and Squelch. It's a really stupid board game where players (Gobbos) run around a rubbish heap collectin troll bits to build their own trolls. There's not enough pieces for all the Gobbos to all build trolls so you steal bits back and forth and if the Troll catches you with them you are in big trouble. The player moving the trolls is supposed to yell "Oi! Dat my (insert troll body part here) and then proceeds to chase the goblin. It's a fairly awful game, but most fun of all four troll games. I only gave it a 3 cause the kids love it, oh well. Game came with a audio cassette of silly troll songs. Real collectors item if you collect GW games. Any offers? SOLD!

For a children's game, this was a pretty fun one.

Fun game for kids or drinking adults. Worth it for the Trollish Tunes tape more than antything. Great idea from GW to have something for the kids to play while you play Warhammer.

Games Workshop smokes too much lawnmower clippings and Cabbage Patch dolls take over the marketing department. But that is in general (see Warhammer 40k for a Marketing snowball). I'm glad I bought this game. Only because no one else has it.

Childhood want (probably costs a lot on eBay).

Player rating is based on how my children would rate the game, Simple game my daughter is just begining to play. She seems to like it ok. Rating will change once we get more plays in. My rating 5.5

I bought this for my littlest sister for Christmas back when I was 17, and we used to have a lot of fun with it. The thing came with this weird cassette tape you were supposed to listen to over and over while playing - funny stuff.

Roll-and-move luck-fest. Actually it's fun in a nostalgia kind of way. I don't hate it, but I'd rather play other things. RfR

For Kids only. The graphics of the Troll and Goblins are great.

The only good bit about this game was the silly tape of music. Only played it because I worked there...

This is the only game in my collection that came with a cassette tape of music to accompany gameplay. It just doesn't have the same experience without listening to the trolls singing. I believe all the "troll/gobbo" themed games in the series came with the same tape.

Who cares about the games? I just want copies of the cassettes. I'd love digital copies of the cassettes on CD or something.

The Gobbo games from Games Workshop have that great, zany and humorous Games Workshop troll-and-gobbo look, which gives them a fantastic feel. It's like if you took the humor of Blood Bowl, and then boiled it down to something young kids would love and laugh at, and yes, that involves some potty humor. Sadly they're not great games. While Oi! Dat's My Leg! is arguably the second best title, you still only get this game for the cassette tape of troll and gobbo music, and the fun graphics. This is a very basic roll-and-move game, in which you attempt to be the first gobbo to build a troll consisting of three pieces, a head, body, and legs. Each gobbo may carry up to three incomplete trolls, and you may sabotage each other's builds by mucking them up with garbage, ensuring your opponent a trip to the dump to rid of it. If your gobbo lands on the same square as another gobbo you may also steal a piece from one of his unfinished trolls, and in doing so you must shout in your best trollish accent, "Oi! Dat's My Head/Body/Leg!" This is probably the best part of this mediocre game. Luckily the game plays very quickly. The art on the board is funny, and kids seem to really like the gameplay. We have built a pathos around the board and the troll and the gobbos. They now have names and personalities based on many, many plays. Basically, I had to find some way to stay stimulated while playing the game. :D While long OOP, only get this game for the cassette tape and/or art, but avoid the actual game - unless you're the creative sort that can make his or her own fun.
