Fantasy Flight Go Trick Taking in Middle-Earth with The Hobbit

September 13, 2012 by brennon

This card game has been wandering around in the world of board and card games for a while. The Hobbit, a trick taking card game by Martin Wallace will soon be unleashed on the world by Fantasy Flight Games.

The Hobbit Card Game - Martin Wallace

Two to Five players take on the role of heroes or villains from the world of The Hobbit, trying to win a good hand of cards to then turn on your opponents. Gandalf, Thorin and Bilbo fight against the deadly dragon Smaug, and Bolg the Goblin King.

I have played a few games by Martin Wallace and this one might be a game that deserves being picked up. Trick taking games seem a simple way of playing, but this appears to have enough little differences to make it worth a try.

You can read more about the rules HERE in this preview.

Will you be picking this up to add to your Tolkien collection?
