Hobbit Card Game

Loy says: “The Hobbit Card Game is a unique take on a trick-taking style game. Not only are you taking tricks, but you’re also dealing damage to your enemies and healing your friends. Some players are good guys (hobbits and dwarves) while at least one is evil (Smaug). Trick taking takes on a new level when you’re concerned for your teammates and battling the forces of darkness at the same time. A nifty change of pace.”

From the box: “Relive the epic struggle of good versus evil in Middle-earth with The Hobbit Card Game, Martin Wallace’s fast-paced, standalone, trick-taking card game for 2-5 players. Win hands and use the cards you’ve won to deal damage to opponents, or heal allies and help them with extra cards. Cards can be imbued with the powers of evil or good, and your character’s alignment determines how each power effects them. Each character assigns cards differently, so use your skills wisely! Fight the forces of evil as Gandalf, Thorin, or Bilbo, or smash the hopes of the heroes as Smaug the dragon or Bolg, the goblin leader.”
