As the previous reviewer stated, there has obviously been little or no testing of the gameplay. There are lots of cards and jewels and other trappings which essentially obscure the fact that this game is about as rich in gameplay as craps. That is not an exaggeration.
The list of faults to this game are so numerous I don't even know where to begin. SAVE YOUR MONEY!...
The two-star rating is because for young children (age 5-7) who know the book, they might get a little enjoyment out of remembering events in the book which are represented in the game, but on the other hand, the game must be played with an adult because there is a lot of reading, and I think the adult must have an alcoholic beverage nearby to get through this tedious thing.
Some of the amusement factor would necessarily be lost without some grounding -- not a great deal, but at least one reading's worth -- in the book, but for those who enjoy Tolkien's introduction to Middle-Earth, THE HOBBIT is a excellent companion to that work. It's really the next best thing to having been there and back again with Bilbo Baggins and his company of dwarves.
Simply put, this game really stinks. I even talked my girlfriend into trying it and she agreed. So based on the unusually high retail price, I figured I could sell it quickly. Not so, apparently the word was out that this game was terrible. I couldn't even sell it on ebay after numerous times, even for as low as $10. Finally, after having the game posted for many months on a popular board game website, I managed to sell it for $4. I'm still surprised anyone actually bought it, even for $4.

Simple gameplay. Good game length. Accessible for me and my 10 year old daughter. We can jump in and play, have some fun without any real difficulty. Read morePublished on April 6, 2013 by The Elves
I am not sure what some of the negative reviews are all about. We got the game for Christmas 2012. We have played it about 8 times now within a few weeks of getting the game. Read morePublished on January 9, 2013 by Richard S. Niccolls
To call The Hobbit Boardgame a boardgame would be an insult to all boardgames everywhere. It plays as if it were slapped together over a lunchtime and never playtested. Read morePublished on December 17, 2002
