Product Description

The legendary tale of Bilbo Baggins introduced the world to Middle-earth - the beloved fantasy setting created by visionary author J.R.R. Tolkien. The Hobbit is a novel that tells the tale of a diminutive hero that, with the help of a group of stalwart dwarves, sets off to infiltrate Smaug's lair in an effort to plunder the dragon's vast hoard of treasure.

Now it's your turn to take on the roles of the dwarves, aiding Bilbo in his monumental quest to defy the odds and become a legend...

The Hobbit, a new game by Reiner Knizia (not to be confused with FFG's previous release of the same name) is a board game of adventure and treasure for 2-5 players. On his quest to the Lonely Mountain, Bilbo Baggins will need assistance and guidance from his stoic dwarf companions. As one of these dwarves, it is your responsibility to aide Bilbo on his journey and ensure that you recover the treasure that is destined for you.

The Hobbit is an engrossing game that's great fun for the entire family. Join Bilbo on his journey to the Lonely Mountain and help him become a legend!

I'm a big boardgame fan and although this is not the best game out there, its fun to play every once in a while. You do not need to know anything of the books to play this game but its fun when you know who and what is going on. The artwork in this game is very nice, but of course, John Howe is the illustrator.
Pros of the game:
1. Fast Pace (first game took about 40 min but we've played 3 player games of about 25 min or so).
2. Beautiful art
3. Simple and easy to learn and play.
4. Nice boardgame set and accessories (jewels and figures look pretty awesome)!
5. Good cooperative game for all ages
6. Tolkien-based.
7. Reasonable price

Cons
The only negative thing I would say about this game is that after you play it a while, it really lacks variability. Unlike other games where there are several options or strategies for victory, there is not much different things to do in this one. You always face the same adventures and i wish there could have been different alternative cards for facing each adventure every time so it wouldnt be so redundant.

This is a great family game. I'm a boardgamer (Lord of the rings, memoir 44, arkham horror) and sometimes my ten year old daughter isn't into the slower paced games. She (and the rest of the family) loved this one. The components are attractive and well made (the little jewels one collects are multi-colored crystals). The board art is nice as are the mechanics. Each player is a dwarf assisting Bilbo the hobbit on his journey to the lonely mountain to steal treasure from Smaug the dragon. The players keep a hand of numbered cards and each round secretly "bid" on various actions to be taken. Bilbo advances along his path and at key locations there is the opportunity to try for treasure. There is a lot of luck involved but that never bothers me if mixed with some skill and good storyline. If you are a fan of lord of the rings this is a must have.

This game is very well designed and plays out with the same light-hearted spirit of the book. You play as dwarfs helping Bilbo get to the Lonely Mountain to collect the treasure and kill the dragon Smaug before he destroys Laketown. The player who collects the most treasure ultimately wins the game but players must also work together so that the dragon does not destroy them first. Great for ages 8+ and a great gateway game to an even better Lord of the Rings Board Game. Both games share the same art style (same artist that illustrated the books and concept art for the films) and game design, although the Lord of the Rings boardgame is more serious and complicated (in a good way), staying true to the source material.

My (nerdy gamer) 6.5-y-o kid got this for Christmas, and we've been enjoying it a lot. I was having a little Settlers of Catan OD, though we LOVE that game. This one is great--it's really very cleverly designed, but is simpler and doesn't go on forever. It has a few different strategies you can try out to win, which makes it fun for me (the adult) to play repeatedly, and I like that it can be both competitive or cooperative, depending on how things are panning out. We added a twist that you can play adventure cards and bet your own jewels against another player's, because that seemed appropriately dwarvish. Very fun game.

We've played the game a few times and enjoy it very much. My kids both are Tolkien fans and love it. The rules are not too complicated and therefore not frustrating, and game play length is just right. I also like how they incorporated the concept of trying to steal from Smaug without being detected.

My 9 and 7 year old sons love this game. At first glance it looked like it was going to be too complex but it ended up being quick to learn. It's not incredibly long so it doesn't last too long where a kid gets bored with it. the game pieces/board are well made. The kids love the treasure/jewels. I'd buy it for 7-12 year old kids.

My boys loved the The Hobbit novel, and though they are only 7 and 9 yrs old they liked this game. The instructions are a little confusing (it took us a while to realise that Laketown was not an Adventure space). But we made it through the first time with no real difficulties. The artwork is beautiful and the game represents the book fairly well.

I got this game for my husband as a present, as he is a Hobbit fan. I was hoping it would be "challenging" enough for adults, since is says it is for 8 years and up, and we were surprised that it is VERY challenging--took quite a while to get through it. We next played it with friends and had a blast!
