A fun looking, family friendly, storytelling game is arriving next month from Dice Up Games and Letiman Games. In Adorablins, player take on the role of adventurous goblins (and their companions) embarking on grand tales. The game fits in a mint tin, is for two to five players, ages 8+, plays in 30 to 90 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $14.00 when it arrives next month. Truth be told, I would consider this to be an all ages RPG but it’s advertised as a storytelling game so we’ll call it that.
About the game:
Adorablins is a super cute and easy-to-learn storytelling game where you play as little Goblin-like creatures going on adventures in an endless variety of places. Everything you need to play is in a portable mint tin box that fits right in your pocket!
Adorablins is inspired by the Powered by the Apocalypse system used by tabletop RPGs like Apocalypse World, Monster Hearts, and Avatar Legends. The game works like a conversation where you all tell a story together.
You’ll choose a character to play as by picking an Adorablin card, then choose the adorable companion who will accompany you on your adventure through a magical portal.
As players try to overcome challenges or do something risky, the Narrator will call for a dice roll. The player describes what their Adorablin is trying to do, chooses a skill that best fits their action, then they roll the dice to see how it goes!
Sessions tend to last between 30 minutes to a few hours and can easily be made to fit whatever time you have to fill. Dinner will be ready in twenty minutes? Grab Adorablins and play a quick game!
