The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey; Strategy Battle Game

IMG_4079

We played 3 scenarios.

The first was Roast Mutton.  The Trolls attacked the dwarves of Thorin’s Company aggressively one by one.  Using the new Heroic Strike rule the dwarves were able to win some Duel rolls and the Trolls being surrounded were trapped and wounded or killed.  However not all went the dwarves way.  On one occasion Thorin’s F value was halved due to suffering from a Sneeze attack and was promptly stuffed in a bag.  However he was soon rescued by his comrades and the dwarves claimed victory.

The next two scenarios involved Goblin Town.

The Second scenario involved the Kili and Fili attempting to break through across the rampways.  They were delayed by the Goblins and could not get out in time with their comrade falling in battle.  The Goblins claimed victory.

The Third scenario involved Nori, Ori and Dori searching for their equipment.  Ori fell in battle after a failed attempt at a whirl attack but Nori was able to smash his way through the Goblins to kill the Goblin Scribe and with luck find the company’s weapons and equipment.  They rapidly escaped and thus claimed victory.
