Description

The Trollish Game of Squiggly Fun!

What are small and Stupid? What do Trolls love to jump up and down on? Squiggly Beasts! Squiggly Beasts are so silly that they make even Gobbos look clever. Maybe that's why Gobbos look after them. Squiggly Beasts are also very tasty. Maybe that's really why Gobbos look after them. Trolls spend days thinking about jumping on Squiggly Beastes. Think hurts Trolls. Trolls only take minutes to jump on Squiggly Beasts. Jumping doesn't hurt Trolls. But Squiggly Beasts make such a great noise when Trolls jump on them....SQUELCH!!!

Players collect lines of Squiggly Beasts and Gobbos, who protect Squiggly Beasts from being squelched by Trolls.

One of four Games Workshop "Troll Games" including Trolls in the Pantry, Oi! Dat's my Leg! and Hungry Trolls and the Gobbos. Its a game where the player draws "squig" cards and has to build the longest path of squigs from the "squiggly hole", kind of like dominos as placement. Unless you draw a Troll tile, then the troll starts "squelching" all your squigs unless you have a gobbo in your path, where he stops. If you have the Big Bad gobbo then you can stop the Troll all together, but there is always 1 less big bad gobbo than players in the game. It's all luck of the draw and actually a fairly awful game. It comes with an audio cassette of silly Troll songs. Only gets a 3 cause the kids love it. It's a crown jewel in GW games collections. Any offers? SOLD!

Silly. The music tape made the girls laugh though.

Probably the best of the four gobbo games. Cheap parts. Silly simple rules. Aimed at the young uns - getting em trained up in the world of goblins and fantasy. Go figure.

Childhood want (probably costs a lot on eBay).

As a game, it's pretty terrible. As an artifact of the evolution of Games Workshop, it's awesome.

A fun game for kids - great if you're trying to wean your small people onto boardgames or Warhammer!

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

Fun kid's game for those kids who like the idea of squashing stuff fun. Copy badly damaged by water.

The Gobbo games from GW looks great, and came with these awesome cassette tapes featuring Gobbo songs.
