The Black Goat of the Woods is a herald. It first appeared in the The Black Goat of the Woods expansion.

Black Goat of the Woods - The Goat with a Thousand Young

When Black Goat of the Woods is the Herald, at the start of game, set aside all monster markers with the hexagon dimension symbol to form a hexagon monster cup.

Praises and Abundance

From the wells of night to the gulfs of space, from the gulfs of space to the wells of night, ever the praises of the Great Ones. Ever their praises and abundance to the Black Goat of the Woods! Iä! Iä! The Goat with a Thousand Young!

When a gate opens, draw a monster from the cup as normal, then draw a second monster from the hexagon cup and place both monsters on the gate's location.

When a monster surge occurs, draw half the monsters (round down) from the hexagon cup.

Hexagon monsters are not removed from the game board when a hexagon gate is closed.

Each time an investigator defeats a hexagon monster, he or she draws a Corruption card.

Lord of the Woods

Dark Young move as normal monsters.

Pagan Rites

Each time a monster surge occurs, add one doom token to the doom track.


In games with 5 or more players, each opening gate will produce three monsters: two normal and one hexagon.
