Hobbit Tales from the Green Dragon Inn is a card game set in Middle-earth. It was designed by Marco Maggi and Francesco Nepitello, designers of War of the Ring and Battle of Five Armies, and published by Cubicle 7 in January 2014.[1]

It uses the same 12-sided die as featured in The One Ring Roleplaying Game, and also includes a set of rules for using the cards in the roleplaying game.[2]


In Hobbit Tales players are Hobbits telling tales in front of a mug of beer at the Green Dragon Inn in the Shire. Woods and mountains, elves and orcs and more sinister things 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, interrupting the story to play hazard cards featuring hidden dangers and fearsome monsters.

After each round of play, players are rewarded with Cheers tokens for playing story cards or for interrupting successfully with hazard cards. The player with the most Cheers tokens at the end of the game wins.[3]


Hobbit Tales won a Silver ENnie for Best Family Game in 2014.[4]
