Hobbit Tales is the story telling card game by award winning designers Marco Maggi and Francesco Nepitello. Here we present the first of our card previews, showcasing cards with art from Andy Hepworth, Jan Pospíšil
and Jon Hodgson
In Hobbit Tales players are Hobbits telling tales in front of a mug of beer at their favourite inn in the Shire. Silent woods and remote mountains, Elves, Goblins and Giants populate their stories.
During the game, players take turns as the Narrator and improvise a story using a hand of illustrated cards. The other players try to twist the tale, playing hazards and fearsome monsters. Drinks are served, smoke-rings are blown, and the best narrator is cheered by everyone present.
Available for Preorder now. Due in stores January 2014.
Includes rules to use Hobbit Tales in conjunction with the The One Ring, Cubicle 7’s role-playing game set in Tolkien’s Middle-earth.
