'Hobbit Tales' storytelling card game available for pre-order Can't Post

Hobbit Tales, the storytelling card game, is now available for pre-order from publisher Cubicle 7. The publisher's description of the game follows:

Quote

In the Hobbit Tales storytelling card game, players compete to tell the most fantastic story. A narrator uses beautifully illustrated large-format cards to form the basis of the tale, with the other players interrupting with monster and hazard cards to disrupt the storyteller and forcing them to think on their feet. Drinks are served, smoke-rings are blown, and the best storyteller is cheered by everyone present.

Hobbit Tales is a game for 2 to 5 Hobbits, designed by award-winning designers Marco Maggi and Francesco Nepitello, creators of the War of the Ring strategy game and The One Ring roleplaying game.



More information is at the Cubicle 7 website.

Thanks O-S! [In reply to] Can't Post

This looks cool. I think I might get it, as a nice easy backup for gaming nights when I either run through all my material or want to play something spontaneous.

Is there a Tolkien topic that you have wanted to look into more deeply, and write about your thoughts on it? If so, we'd like to hear from you for the next TORn Amateur Symposium- coming in November. Happy writing!

boardgamegeek? [In reply to] Can't Post

You should put this on boardgamegeek. I don't think they have an entry for it at present.

Maybe [In reply to] Can't Post

I've never visited BoardGameGeek (.com?). Perhaps I'll take a look.

UPDATE: Actually, the site does have a listing for the Hobbit Tales card game. It doesn't have a ranking yet, probably because it hasn't yet been released.
