hobbitcardFantasy Flight Games has just released The Hobbit Card Game, no doubt timed to coincide with the release of The Hobbit movie. In the game, players are randomly assigned characters from the story. Whether a player’s character is good or evil will affect the player’s goal for the game. Evil characters must combine their powers to wipe out the forces of good before the end of the game. Good characters simply must survive the constant barrage from the evil ones.

The game is for ages 10+, plays in 30 minutes, and is designed my Martin Wallace. You can find it at various retailers for around $10.
