In We Is Goblins!, players have characters that are goblins. Character life expectancy is not great. Characters are created by distributing ten points into nine available Skills (called "Know-Wots"). Skill ranks run from 0 to 10. Action resolution involves a D6 roll; a 5-6 indicates success. Goblins with an applicable Skill may roll additional dice. The game attempts a comedic style of play.
