The Hobbit Adventure Boardgame is a fun, fast-moving fantasy boardgame based on J.R.R. Tolkien's classic bestseller. Desiged for 2-4 players and playable in 1-2 hours, it is an ideal choice for an evening's entertainment. Simple but clever rules make it both easy to learn and full of replay value.
It only takes about 15 minutes to master The Hobbit Adventure Boardgame rulesbook. Then you just unfold the full-color, mounted mapboard, select a plastic Hobbit, deal out the coins and life points, and start your journey across Middle-earth. Along the way, you'll explore sites, battle monsters, discover treasure, acquire artifacts, and challenge your opponents with tricky riddles. Once you're strong enough, you'll journey north to Angmar to battle a foul Dragon, hoping to be the first halfling to secure his great hoard.
