Fiendishly funny card tokens by Artist Jeff Miracola

We’re launching a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign August 24, 2017 at 11am (Central Time) for the creation of the Groblins-staring token set – for use in any of your favorite card games’ decks. Instigating little mischief-makers that they are, the Groblins tranform your token trouble into twisted fun — while blowing up your deck. We dare not cross their path. Neither should you. Mark your calendars for August 24th or better yet, subscribe to our newsletter to be informed when the campaign goes live. You won’t want to miss out on early-bird pricing or limited rewards!

The Kickstarter campaign will feature:
Card Tokens featuring Groblins by Jeff Miracola

  • A pack of 48 full-color tokens in UV coated high gloss tuck box
  • Exclusive foil tokens only available to project backers
  • Additional bonus tokens available through stretch goals
  • Limited rewards and special early-bird pricing (Pledge early!)
  • Signed, uncut sheets featuring every token in the full set
  • Options to have your tokens signed by artist Jeff Miracola
  • Original art token cards
  • Original Groblins art
  • Groblins playmats
  • And much more

What is Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a crowdfunding website where creators, like us, present our project to the world in hopes of getting enough funding from backers (people like you) to make our project a reality. In exchange for your pledged amount of money, you receive “rewards.” In our case, that reward is the Groblins Token Pack, or any of the other rewards you choose such as playmats, foil token packs, uncut sheets, etc.

You will need a credit card to pledge. Your credit card is not charged until the Kickstarter campaign ends and ONLY if our funding goal has been met. If we do not reach our funding goal, Kickstarter does not charge your credit card. A few weeks after the campaign ends, Kickstarter releases your charged funds to us. We can then move ahead with manufacturing the token packs and other rewards.

About Jeff Miracola

Jeff began his career in 1993 as a freelance illustrator for many role-playing/collectible card game companies such as Wizards of the Coast, Upper Deck, Blizzard, White Wolf, Steve Jackson Games, FASA Corporation, and more. Some other clients include Electronic Arts, Target, Hasbro, Scholastic, Immedium, and Warner Bros.

To card game players, Jeff is best known for the over 110 paintings he has created for Wizard’s of the Coast’s popular card game, Magic: the Gathering where his art runs the gamut from serious to humorous. Although he loves to paint a serious dragon now and then, it’s the humorous art that really speaks to him. It’s for this reason Jeff combined his love of card game token art with his feisty little creations, the Groblins.

Jeff’s work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and his art and tutorials featured in publications such as Advanced Photoshop, Expose, and ImagineFX magazines. Jeff is a Silver Medal Winner in Spectrum: the Best in Fantastic Art and was the 2011 Guest of Honor at GenCon, the longest running gaming convention in the world.

When Jeff isn’t creating art for himself or clients, he loves to travel and work out with his wife, with whom he has three children.

About Groblins

Groblins appear to be a mix of goblins and gremlins. They kept themselves hidden for untold centuries, yet for some reason chose to reveal their existence to Fantasy Artist Jeff Miracola. Very late one cold winter night, after Jeff had fallen asleep watching Game of Thrones, the groblins did not scramble away as usual when he stirred but instead allowed him to see them playing Mario Kart on his video game console. Jeff assumed he was dreaming, but the encounter would soon explain some of the greater mysteries of his life.

The miscreant creatures were in fact the reason behind so many disconcerting moments at home: misplaced objects, creaking sounds at night that he’d attributed to the house “settling,” and missing food, which he swore to his wife he hadn’t selfishly devoured on a late-night Ninja Lizards movie binge.

Perhaps it was their interest in the strange, fantastical worlds of Jeff’s artistic creations or perhaps it was simple curiosity at a human that seemed to never sleep, but, either way, the vexing little beasts teased Jeff with occasional sightings and regular, reckless pranks. Jeff has learned to keep the fire extinguisher handy.

To the best of Jeff’s reckoning, Groblins are perpetually playful, highly curious, sometimes sneaky, and always instigating little mischief-makers who are capable of both great affection and wanton destruction. At one moment they might coddle the kitten and at the next undermine the house’s foundation walls. Their unpredictability is at once their most charming and dangerous trait. Nothing is safe, not even fellow Groblins. Their most irksome trait? Their ability to inflame any situation, even if the blowout requires explosives. Groblins are therefore to be considered armed and dangerous. These loose cannons are now unleashed on an otherwise unsuspecting world, and Jeff doesn’t know how to stop them.

One tip that just may save your house and home: Groblins love marshmallows, to both eat and wear as hats. Keep a ready supply so they don’t turn their sights on you.
