What's so cool about... Kobolds?

Pshh, how about everything!!
How about the fact that Kobolds are rad? Or that they are community-minded and actually care about their burrow-mates? Or that they straddle the liminal space between the Above Ground and the Deep Caverns?

What's So Cool About Kobolds is a bookmark-sized game that is based on Jared Sinclair's game What's So Cool About Outer Space?

WISCAK includes advanced rules for:

  • Player-facing fudging/bluffing
  • Interactive Burrow Creation

It was created for three concurrent game jams: What Is So Cool About Jam, Bookmark Game Jam, and Monthly Micro Jam July 2020 (theme: lying as a central mechanic)

Art for the itch cover page was generously provided by Guillaume Jentey.

I really like this little game! Am I allowed to translate it into French and publish it here on itch.io? (with all credits due, of course)

Congratulations! It looks great! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Iโ€™m just happy to have the game available to more people, and Iโ€™m impressed by your work!

By the way, if you want it made in the same layout I used you can send me the text and I can use the same template I used, no worries.

Or if you want I can send you the InDesign files of course (but sadly not the title font as it is copyrighted).

Of course, if you prefer to do a design of your own you are more than welcome to!

Thank you for your kind permission!

The problem with the layout is that French texts are usually significantly longer than the English source. So I think that the translated version might overflow the bookmark layout. And I prefer to keep it readable, and not reducing the font size too much.


I'll see what I can do, but it'll probably be a 3-to-4-page long PDF. I'll keep you posted! :o)

Sounds great! Good luck! :-)

I'm very here for the bluffing-based D20 mechanism, it really plays to the fantasy of being a sneaky kobold

Cheers! Glad you like it!

Love this! If you want a set of random tables to make your own kobold warren, I made this free resource a while ago https://zargogames.itch.io/basickobold

Wow, this is really cool! What a great game aid! Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ™

A simple yet thrilling resolution mechanic of betting between kobolds (players) and their GM, a kobold creation guide, and a community-built burrow rules all in a bookmark. What a package!
