Gruff is a tactical card game about mutated monster goats. Players take the role of a shepherd. Trample anything that stands in your way using your custom team of weaponized battle goats
Gruff's unique combat mechanics create a constant state of counter-play and conflict. When an enemy attacks you have your entire turn to dodge out of the way. Mount your defenses, and launch a counterattack!

Gruff began as an artistic project to stretch the limit's of what could be visually defined as a goat. After several months we had developed hundreds of different mutant goats. Gruff followed shortly after as a game to lend additional life and personality to the original drawings.
The game embraces the oddness and the darkness of the grim fairy-tale "The Billy-Goats Gruff" and takes the idea of troll-killing goats to it's logical conclusion. Shepherds have become warriors and goats have become the ultimate weapon.
