LEGO – The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Board Game Box Shot

LEGO – The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

| Published: 2012
11 4

A buildable and fun twist on a memory game for 2 to 4 players. The game is all about finding the missing Dwarves who have gotten lost in Hobbiton, using hints left by Gandalf the Grey and some Hobbits to help you search. The player who finds the most dwarves wins the game.

True to the LEGO Games experience, if you are up to the challenge you can transform the board during the game, testing your memory skills to the max. Once the board is built it is easy to store and quick to take out to play again.

“Super Memory + Lego + Tolkien = Had to buy :)”

So when Lego picked up the license for the Tolkien Movie Verse my first reaction was: LEGO LORD OF THE RINGS VIDEO AND BOARD GAMES!!! I didn’t even know this was in the works when I saw it on the shelves of a local big box store. Naturally I had to pick it up.

After constructing the set several things stuck out at me:

First- I LOVE that the board has a built in modularity. You don’t just take apart and reassemble the board, it has hinges that let you swivel certain sections.

Second- The game is more than just memory. Each Hobbit Hole has TWO tiles inside, so the top one has to be collected before you can access the tile below it.

Third- the goal of the game is NOT to have the most matches, it’s to collect the most Dwarves. SO if you find a Dwarf: good job, turn over, move on. If you find something ELSE though, you try to make a match. Each other sort of tile has a different action upon matching. The thing to remember is that none of the other players can see what you’ve found!

I haven’t played a Lego Board Game I haven’t liked yet, and this is no exception. I love this series of games because I can even play it with my youngest (5) and keep him involved. Being that it’s also Hobbit Legos, well, that’s a pleasant icing on top. 😉
