The mutant monster goats of #Gruff have a new bridge to claim in @Level99Games's latest game, #MillenniumBladesCollusion! Find it here: goo.gl/UUXzvn! Look out for a more in-depth feature about Gruff and these cards from Level 99 Games later this month!
For February lets celebrate love and union by sharing the most lovely, most unified gruff ever... Mulch!
To get this lovely deluxe-frame version of Studio Woe's mascot, just make a post telling the world about the gruff that you love the best in a post at the gruff subreddit! Tell us about the abilities you like, if there is something you find awesome about their look, your favorite gruff-battle story, or anything else you love about your monster goat! Post about it here https://www.reddit.com/r/gruff then send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your post to win this awesome promo card!
Happy New Year Gruffians! To Celebrate we are introducing a new quest for Shepherds of Woe. Just play a game of Gruff at your local board game hobby store, then send us an email at email@example.com with your mailing address and the name of the store you played at and we will send you a copy of Flame Jets! A new typo correction card from the original Gruff game!
Get a free promo card by giving Gruff to a friend!
The Holiday Season is here again, which means it is time for another Shepherds of Woe Quest! To participate simply give a copy of any Gruff game to a friend. Then send an email describing what happened to me at firstname.lastname@example.org along with your mailing address. When you do I will send this promo card your way!
Studio Woe has also just launched it's "Black Friday" sale, which will be running from now through November 26th, which gives you a super easy way to finish your quest!
Pick one up at https://studio-woe.myshopify.com/ for yourself, or to share with a friend! Just remember to let me know about your act of generosity at email@example.com to get your reward!
The Shepherds of Woe program is getting a massive overhaul for the better! Each month a new quest will be available with a new reward. When you complete the quest, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address and your reward will be sent to you immediately. Shipping costs may apply for orders out of the US, basically if the order costs more than $5 I may ask you to pitch in.
There are some huge advantages to this system over the previous way of doing Shepherds of Woe. You will no longer need to register. There is no chance of not getting credit for points earned in the past. Rewards are sent immediately rather than at the end of the year, and this system is no longer a competition between shepherds! Everybody wins!
The first Shepherds of Woe quest will earn you a promo reprint card that replaces Bubble's misprinted "Deep Secrets" card. To earn the card, simply rate and write a brief review for Gruff: Stuff of Nightmares at https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/249677/gruff-stuff-nightmares then send a link to your review to email@example.com and we will ship the card over to you. If you have already written a review for Gruff: Stuff of Nightmares, that works too! Just send the link over to me and I will get you hooked up! I am really excited for this new program! Thank you all for your support!

Recently Magic the Gathering announced that it had banned the card Gitaxian Probe from play in their game. We here at Studio Woe empathize with players that feel like they have been left out in the cold by this ruling, so we have decided to allow players to use these cards in Gruff! Going forward you can include 2 Gitaxian Probes in both Fluttermind's (Praise his glorious tentacles) and Grovers decks. If you bring both of these lovely monster goats you will be able to use your entire playset of probes again! If you are interested in getting into the world of Gruff, you can get the game here!
Q: You don't use mana in your game, how can I play this card?
A: Gitaxian Probe has an alternative casting cost . It can be played in Gruff by paying 2 of your shepherd's life.
Q: It isn't April, is this some time of very late April Fools joke?
A: It is definitely a funny thing to do, but we are serious about it. We want MTG players to know that they are welcome in our herd!
Q: Git Probe's back will not match the backs of the other Gruff cards, how will I actually play it.
A: You can play this card as long as your entire ability deck has opaque sleeves.
Q: You don't have sorceries in Gruff, how does this card work?
A: The Probe will work like an Action Card. Play it any time during your Play Cards phase!
Q: Are you going to make a Print and Play version of the card for non-magic players?
A: I don't think we can legally do that, but it would be fine if you want to play a proxy version of the card, just don't reprint another company's property without their permission.
Q: Is this actually tournament legal?
A: Yes! See you at the Gruff World Championship!

Gruff: Rage of the Trolls has started arriving for Kickstarter backers! If you have not received a shipping notification, please double check your archived email folders to ensure that you completed your survey, so that we have a shipping address for you.
Several people that ordered the "Rage Tier" had their products shipped without the Rage-Red slider pack. If you did not get one of these slider packs, please reply to the Shipping confirmation email that you received from our logistics company "Ship Naked" and they will send you your missing component.
In other news I added a frequently requested feature to our Errata page. You can now see a list of recommended "Starting Star" cards for each gruff in our original game!
