Okay... orc list... elf list... there must be a hobbit list now. Feel free to add more Hobbitty games, although there probably aren't as many as there are of the other two.

And I've been reminded that Halflings are also Hobbits.

Hobbits are well-known for their fearlessness (Merry, Sam) and their cunning and quickness (Frodo, Pippin).

Hobbits are inquisitive folk. Plus this trivia game isn't another Trival Pursuit knockoff and actually has challenging questions.

The best LotR CCG ever made, and not only because you could get all the main characters (including hobbits) as fixed packs rather than playing hunt-the-rare (of course, including Very Important Hobbits in that last category).

There are hobbits in here. The tarot meanings as applied to the pictures and the traditional Rider-Waite interpretations are sometimes okay, and sometimes really, really stretching the metaphor.... The game is nothing special. The deck isn't even terribly good as a Gnostica/Zarcana deck (color changes in the background and extra icons that have no meaning in the tarot but would distract from the Icehouse game).

Let's hear it for Milo and Primula Brandybock, we're avoiding the Eye of the Tolkien Literary Holiness Protection Agency (aka Chris Tolkien et. al)! Plus we gain experience faster than you and can actually avoid the mean minotaur.

I think this is the only non-LotR entry I know of.

Do Halflings count? If so, the plucky little buggers can be found in the Talisman (2nd ed) Expansion. There is one in the upper right corner of the image...life size...

If you can believe it, the original Steve Jackson edition doesn't (and still doesn't!) come with as nice of a card layout as the Spanish edition.

But yes, there are Halflings here.

The halflings do manage to muster up a team, although not a very good one. I can't imagine sucessfully playing a halfling team. Doesn't seem like a very feesable team to play as...

This should be one of the first in the list. The pictures on the BGG don't show it well, but there seems to be a nice and different miniature for each of the four hobbits.

Halflings are a player race in D&D (d20 System), and they're in the miniature game too.

This game is based on the d20 System, so there are halflings in it - and indeed, one of the 4 pre-made characters is a halfling rogue.

Halflings can be included in Empire armies (at least when I used to play some years ago).
