Description

Gobbos eat very strange things and they eat nearly all the time. The only time Gobbos don't eat is when they are out looking for food. The wander around smelly caves and tunnels looking for a really nasty thing to munch on the spot or to collect to their pantries. Gobbos eat worms and custard, coal and mice, fish heads and slime and lot of other horrid stuff. Trolls also eat lots of things. Trolls eat most of the time. Most of the time Trolls and Gobbos just get on with eating their own nasty messes. But if a Troll ever gets in a Gobbo's Pantry, then he will eat everything that is in there! Its the game of greedy gobbos and grotty grub.

Be the first Goblin to fill up your pantry before the trolls clean it out.

A new game using the same bits was published in White Dwarf 117, Zog Off!.

One of four Games Workshop "Troll Games" including Oi! Dat's My Leg, Squelch! and Hungry Trolls and the Gobbos. In this game the players run around the board collecting gross food stuff to put in their pantries so they can eat dinner. It's a memory match card/board game. If you pick up a troll card, the other players all grab the giant troll pieces and tromp them up and down on your pantry yelling "Trolls in the pantry!" and take all your foodstuff you collected. First gobbo to fill up his pantry wins. It's a fairly awful game, but the kids love it so I gave it a 3. It's a crown jewel in GW collectors collections. Any offers? SOLD!

Childhood want (probably costs a lot on eBay).

The best thing about this Games Workshop kid's game was the audio tape that was included in the box. Fun if you're 8 years old... or you're playing with the kids... otherwise, leave it on the shelf.

Memory game for kids with 'Trolls' theme

Still have the tape! Game has suffered a little, was one of the most popular and tended to get a little too raucous as the kids got older!!

Children's game which is fun to play but the tape will drive you up the wall after a short time.

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 GW looks great, and came with these awesome cassette tapes featuring Gobbo songs. The games were not all that hot though, but this is the gem of the lot. Well, "gem" might be a bit too strong, but it's still a fun kids game. It's basically a memory game with a roll-and-move twist. To hurry up gameplay we only count the spaces still containing tiles, so you can't end up missing tiles a few turns in a row.
