HOBBITThe Journey to Erebor

Thorin Oakenshield’s quest to reclaim Erebor is almost over. The Dwarves have travelled far to the east, outwitting Trolls, evading Orcs and even escaping imprisonment from within the dungeon of Thranduil, King of the Woodland Realm. Thorin’s Company have finally reached The Lonely Mountain, but reckless haste has led them to rouse mighty Smaug™ from his slumber. Yet the dragon is but one of many perils that Thorin Oakenshield™ and his kinsmen now face, as five armies of friends and foes alike converge upon Erebor, each seeking a claim to the long-lost treasures of the Dwarves…

In this Throne of Skulls event, re-live the epic clashes throughout Middle-earth at the time of the Battle of the Five Armies. Play 7 games of  The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies™ , meet other members of the Middle-earth community and secure your place in legend.
