I own Lord of the Rings board game and love it. Is The Hobbit board game worth getting? Incomparison, at first glance it seems simplified.
Worth getting if you own and love Lord of the Rings BG?

In reality the two games are next to nothing alike. LotR is a co-op game, but The Hobbit is a semi co-op game only if one of the variants is played (that is - everybody loses if Smaug arrives at Lake Town) - either way there will still be one winner (unless Smaug hits Lake Town).
The Hobbit is a fun game - it's much more family weighted than LotR and gamers coming to it looking for something with a similar level of game play to LotR will probably be disappointed. I like it, though I wouldn't play it when I feel like something weighty - it's a great little family style game that is easy to play, doesn't outstay it's welcome and has a fantastic theme.

Really nice game for family. Easy and fun. No need some great strategy and calculations. Game for rest. I very like it.
No one want to lose because of Smaug and everyone wants to win by jewels simultaneously. Very relax and fun.
