Another Hobbit Card Game is On the Way this Year

You may remember not long ago we looked at the new expansion to The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game coming out later this year for the Hobbit. It was entitled The Hobbit: There and Back Again from Fantasy Flight Games. Well, it seems Martin Wallace (who designed the Discworld game I reviewed last week) has got one coming out as well!

Here’s the spiel for the game…

“In Der Hobbit: Das Kartenspiel (The Hobbit: The Card Game), two teams play against each other: good versus bad. The basic game mechanism is trick-taking, but whoever wins the trick can distribute the cards amongst all the players, depending on his character’s ability. Some cards hurt, some heal – and only one team can win the game.”

Kosmos are publishing the game in Germany but as of yet there is no word on who will be working on the English version of the game. It should be interesting to see how this stacks up against other Hobbit related games over the coming months.

Are you in The Hobbit spirit?
