Please, I beg of you, DO NOT PURCHASE THIS with hopes of a fun family game.
KR
Unclear and incomplete rules, poor game play, extremely long with too many non-playing characters to move, lack of choices or strategy, just not fun.
Pharbero
Played it today, and it took a total more than 5 hours to finish, with 3 people playing.

I understand where everyone is coming from in the other reviews. The game is difficult to play..AT FIRST. Once you start going it becomes very fun! If you think monopoly is a long game, then forget this because it does take hours and hours, more than one sitting. The directions are difficult to understand, but as I said once you start playing it its fun. I very much enjoy this game and would recommend it to any Tolkien fans who enjoy a challenge! One thing to keep in mind, is that when the other movies come out, they will have "expansion packs" for this game, more land at the least. I love this game!

I agree with everyone's previous comments. The instructions are woefully lacking critical details needed for gameplay. For example, there was no explanation for what the green symbols or map icons mean, amongst other details. The game took entirely too long to play, it is unrealistic to have all characters reach the end point, and even if they do Gandolph has a distinct advantage as the most powerful character. My group of 7 players quit after nearly 2 hours. We lost interest and grew frustrated with the poor instructions. My group of friends frequently play table top games, and I would not play this game again.

Received the game as a Christmas present for the family. Played it today, and it took a total more than 5 hours to finish, with 3 people playing. Poorly thought out rule set, does not even cover the common problem of what to do if the attack/defense dice are equal, or explain several major items about movement on the game board. Many game cards had typos in them. The game had potential, but it was obviously rushed out just to cash in on the movie tie-in and never actually play tested by anyone who cared.

The outside of the box says for ages 8+....it also says somewhere that it is "easy to play" and for "family". My husband, my daughters (ages 12, 13) and I attempted to play this game, after first having to have my husband read and attempt to interpret very poorly written rules for us (about 20 minutes...and I should add that we are educated!). We gave it our best effort b/c this was a Christmas gift to one of the girls who is a huge Hobbit fan. So commence game play: Half of the cards that affect game play are confusing, with unclear or non-specific portions so you are left to make/agree on your own rules at some points. The game, if played to the end no matter the number of players, would seriously take ALL DAY! We played for over an hour before we gave it up, and not one of us was even close to the end....and you have to play all 15 characters to the end no matter how many people you have...which could easily take 5-8 hours.
In conclusion: Poorly written directions, poorly thought out game cards, minimal fun...mostly frustration, and no end in sight. Don't waste your money...or your time.

Addendum: I also emailed the company my thoughts on this game as I was not happy about paying so much for such a poorly thought out game. They emailed me an 8 page FAQ sheet made by the inventor after the game "that should enhance and clarify game play". With a game this new, to already have a full 8 page FAQ sheet speaks for itself.

Verified Purchase
Got it for my son who is a huge fan of LOTR and The Hobbit. We played for 3 hours and saw no end in sight! The only way to end the game is to wander around in circles flipping cards while once in 5-7 rounds another one of the non playing characters arrives at the end space. Don't see how this can be fun! Would love to return this game and get even half of my money back. Maybe then I can buy him a real game! UGH!

First I would like to say about the rules they are written very very poorly and took me a good half hour to get the game straight. But once you get going the game is quite fun. Me and my wife had a lot of fun playing this game. My biggest problems with the game are.

1)the game takes way to long to finish because you have to move the entire company to the end. It took us 2 days playing for about 3 hours to finish up. But I think it will go quicker now we know how to play.
2)Gandalf is was to powerful and since he has to be picked the player who gets him will most likely win.
3)This is the biggest problem is the game is incomplete. It is only a third of the game and ends where the movie ends. I am hoping they keep releasing the other parts because I look forward to it.

My Biggest pluses for this game are
1)It keeps close to the story of the hobbit.
2)Each character is different and has it's own power.
3)My favorite part of the game is you have to work together to win.

My final thoughts are I wouldn't recommend to everyone but if you are a Tolkien fan or looking for a game you can play for a while go for it. If not i would skip it.

I agree the rules are inept and impossible to follow but nevertheless my 12-year old daughter somehow found the game fun and we found a link to alternative rules which start to make the game potentially enjoyable [...]

These don't yet make the game totally playable - it is still far too slow and long - but there are good elements

Key element is to divide the party into teams - e.g. three players: one has Bilbo + 3 dwarves, one has Thorin + 3 dwarves, one has Gandalf and 3 dwarves. Any dwarves not involved don't play at all.

I would suggest the aim is to get your whole team to Eagle Eyrie at which point game ends and total points per team are counted.

Many more modifications are needed - suggestions: all of your characters move on every turn; combat: forget 'running', winner of 2-dice roll scores damage (the attack / defence business is far too slow); troll rules need changing - if troll wins round of combat suggest move battling character and nearest other character to troll cave with troll; Goblin King card needs to be changed (business of passing card to left makes no sense); need major solution to those mass collections of wargs / goblins on the right of the board...; getting people to Treetops and then Eagle Eyrie needs to be clarified etc..etc..

One can see that the game would then involve some strategy - do you try to score points by knocking out enemies, or race to the end to get the points associated with getting to Eagle Eyrie? How much time do you invest in trying to pick up supplies at the beginning? Getting your team to meet each other to exchange things helps but could also waste time. The team of dwarves you have might determine that e.g. Dwalin and Bombur are stronger fighters, Oin can restore lost points etc.. The team with Bilbo has to wait for him to get the ring which is quite time consuming etc..

if I didn't have a day job I would try to produce a properly written and road-tested version...
