What It Is
Now you can play Scrabble in Middle Earth with The Hobbit Scrabble. This game plays just like the classic game of Scrabble but with a Hobbit twist. Original rules apply: players form interlocking words, crossword fashion, on the board using letter tiles of different values. In addition, you can enhance your score by playing with Adventure Cards and playing words related to The Hobbit.
Each player receives three Adventure Cards along with their seven letter tiles and tile rack. You may only play one Adventure Card per turn, and you must play that card before playing your word. When you play the card, you must do what the card says. For instance, "Use the internet (or dictionary) to figure out your word".
Players can also earn bonus points for playing words related to The Hobbit, such as Bilbo, Hobbit, Orc, or Sword. The extra points you score is determined by how many letters are in your word.
