Miles and I are reading the Hobbit, so we gave this old favorite a go. This is a roll-and-move kids' game, but I find it superior to a lot of the games my kids like to play because it (somewhat) communicates its theme, the components are nice, and it plays rapidly. There's a lot of dice grinding and process in this one, but there's also some suspense (for kids at least), thanks to the spinner and the Palantir tests. The end result is a breezy game that my kids like, and which doesn't cause me to claw at my eyes and pray for it to end (as is the case with, say, Atmosfear).

Miles quickly blitzed the map, and took down Sauron in a single battle, spending Gandalf to offset his one bad combat result.
