Based on an ancient board game,
Eleventy-Seven Morsels is a Hobbit game, and everyone knows Hobbits like to eat!
The game pieces are edible and each time a player starts a move, they suddenly
have one less playing piece, conveniently saved for later in the Hobbit’s snack
sack. The game is easy to get into and fun to play, but may take time to master.
There are two versions of the game
that can be played. A coin flip determines whether the goal is to get the
highest number of morsels in your snack sack or in your scoring bin. Play
proceeds as each player takes turns picking up the morsels in one of the pots on
their side of the board and distributing the morsels, one at a time, in a
clock-wise manner into each of the subsequent pots around the board. The game
ends when either player has nothing but empty pots on their side of the board.
At this time, any morsels remaining on the opponent’s side of the board are
placed in the opponent’s snack sack.
Eleventy-Seven Morsels is available
