Apparently there's this version of the board game now available on multiple Amazon websites, including here (even available from some other sellers if you click there):

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Hobbit-Desolation-Smaug-Board/dp...

I wonder if this is the real thing, some things hint that this is categorized as a book for some reason. But there's no book with that name and the listed ISBN numbers:

ISBN-10: 1617681725
ISBN-13: 978-1617681721

Show the board game and images of the board game in some other sites as well, like here:

http://www.english-book-service.com/9781617681721.html

Really strange, can it be really gotten for this cheap?

You need to be careful. There are multiple games with the same name (part of the problem for being a movie tie in). The dice game is made by Cryptozoic.

I could not find any other games with the same name on BGG though, are there any?

Yup, the Amazon link goes to totally different game, which I didn't realize until the game arrived. cry I really hope the game I got is fun, but now I have to go back and buy the right game.
