Go on your own adventure!

An Unexpected Party is a fast, fun, action-based tabletop game for 2-4 players, set in the opening scenes of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – when the thirteen Dwarves arrive unannounced at Bag End, much to Bilbo’s dismay! Mischief ensues as the dwarves cheerfully jest with Bilbo under the watchful eye of Gandalf.

Step into the Dwarves shoes and earn points by performing lines of the song, “The Things Bilbo Hates.” As you move around Bag End you will gather items and generally make a mess of the place! But be careful not to push Bilbo too far…

The game ends either when all 15 lines of the song are completed, or with the momentous arrival of Thorin. The player with the most points – who did the best job arousing Bilbo’s curiosity and shaking up his sheltered life – will win!

Senior Concept Artist at Weta Workshop, Daniel Falconer joined the award-winning facility in 1996. The Workshop’s resident Tolkien expert, Daniel was instrumental in designing many of the iconic costumes, weapons, props and characters as seen in The Lord of the Rings. His film credits also include The Hobbit motion picture trilogy, King Kong, and The Chronicles of Narnia.

In addition to his work for the screen, Daniel serves as art director on Weta Workshop’s collectibles and has written a number of books for the Workshop, including The Hobbit Chronicles and Middle-earth: From Script to Screen.
