Saw this on Amazon, but I'm not sure which entry if any on BGG it is:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Hobbit-16560-Board-Game/dp/B008D...

Can anyone help?

Thanks!

Seems to be a game from UK manufacturer Vivid Imaginations, but I'm hard pressed to find much more than that.

I picked this up from Waterstones in Stirling today and was equally confused. They claim it's by "Esdevium Games":

But I'm not sure that helps.

When you've read or played, I'd love to hear more. I've not found out anything much yet, but the playing pieces look interesting. Ta!

It's utter rubbish! Very much a kids game, tbh Ludo is better.

That's the tie-in for the film that came out this year so it has nothing to do with the more classing boardgames based on the books. You'll be looking for a version on BGG published in 2012.

I personally own the 2001 version that I got cheap. That's quite fun although not brilliant. The 2010 one by FFG looks fun, though.

EDIT: This one I believe: http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/120204/the-hobbit-an-unex...

Its this one The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

I uploaded the images and limited info on it. Got it from a well meaning relative at Christmas. Couldn't bring myself to play it. Reminds me of Ludo shake
