My summer Prince Valiant campagn took a break from the usual action this week to play a rousing game of The Hobbit (2001) from Fantasy Flight Games (and others, check the game link for more info). I have played this only once before some years back and had trouble remembering how it went. We sure had a lot of fun this time around, though.
The toughest part for some was being able to recite back the lyrics from the poem-songs to win adventure challenges. We had six players and played twice, both games being fairly close for several players. We had so much fun that we've decided that through the coming year we'd break out the other Lord of the Rings games we have and try to play them all before the first Hobbit movie comes out.
