Beginning of the end for the Hobbit? Let's hope.

There's some Hobbit event going on at the GW a town over from me this weekend (as frequent as 40k/WFB events), they just released that massive Smaug model, and they have sole rights to the game....I doubt it's going anywhere. Maybe they're making room for new stuff to be released?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

doubtfull, this happened the LoTR battlegame, and war of the ring as well. they ride the hype and then neglect it.

Oh, it's more than neglect. The phrase you're looking for is "going to direct order only." Stores are no longer contractually required to carry it at all (not even the Escape from Goblin Town set) and the entire range is going direct so it's not even easy to order.

Oklahoma is on occasion a very odd place, so It doesn't surprise me that its taken hold.

It's a shame. I got involved just before the Two Towers and absolutely loved it. I remember getting the Return of the King rulebook a few days before release. The models were really nice, and the ruleset very easy to understand and play with.
