Robbits (the nickname for Urban Halflings) are a small mischievous folk with an uncanny habit of ‘finding’ ancient relics of vast and horrifying power. In this case, a troublesome Ring, belonging to an evil wizard called Nörmün. Nörmün has sent his Goblins to retrieve the Ring, even as the Wizard Gudgrief tries to form a Party of Dwarves, Elves and Robbits to take the Ring away on a Quest.

But the reluctant Robbits know that nobody ever comes back from Gudgrief’s Quests, so the Dwarves are forced to Press-Gang and the Elves to Enchant them out of their Pits to join the Party. However, Robbits are innately ‘Tricksy’ and will use Magic and Excuses to avoid going on the Quest. Only one Robbit will live to tell the epic tale of... 

Our card game is a parody of Epic Quests in roleplaying and fantasy fiction, where brave heroes would normally gather together to find, destroy, or hide the 'McGuffin'. Robbits however, want nothing to do with it, and must use Magic and Excuses to avoid going on the Quest, all the time dealing with troublesome Dwarves, Elves and Goblins.

This game contains, 100 fabulously illustrated cards,  a rulebook and a die. 

The card game is for 1-6 people (and is also a solid two player game) and games are incredibly varied.  It is ideal as a warm-up or filler for game evenings or just some interactive fun with friends.  It is a fast-paced game, typically taking 30 minutes or so.

Once again we have a beautiful die produced by Q-Workshop for the Battle Die.  The Battle Die is used to resolve Battles in the game, the outcome of some events and Enchanting Elves.

 

 

The Robbits are also available as minis, in Midlams classic style, and they're also adding in 'The Book of the Dead' a 9minute card game in some of the pledge levels.   

 

They're only at 70 backers and 400% yet, so there's still room for a few more backers...

Too bad Midlam doesn't seem to have IOSS. Backing this would mean just the kind of low-value order from the UK customs currently seem to be making a point of creating a hassle over. ☹️
