Discussing tabletop and related gaming and the Irish gaming scene so you don't have to

Jun 8, 2011

Exp:  It's review time again, for a couple of fairly simple, fairly abstract, fairly time-killery board games whose actual linking relationship has yet to be determined.  Shane, humbug and Liam gather round to examine the seedy underbellies of The Hobbit and Kill Doctor Lucky.  Features:

  • Keeping the fourth wall intact
  • The Hobbit
  • ...not The Hobbit (or the Lord of the Rings)
  • The Titular Hobbit
  • Gems are the best bit
  • Additional axe
  • If I can't win, nobody can
  • Happy dwarf sort-of-collaboration
  • The Titular Book
  • Unscientific dice
  • Warpcon
  • Kill Doctor Lucky
  • Game continuity
  • Get Lucky with the monkey paw
  • The prisoner's dilemma
  • Game wrecked by gamers
  • Expansion name as game mechanic
  • Laughing at people who don't get to play
  • Playing it doggy-style
  • Uncertainty in numbers
  • The theme of the episode
