Quoted from Budman:
I am considering purchasing this title and would appreciate your input to see if it might be a good fit. I live in a rural area so haven’t had a chance to play it. Just been watching videos and tutorials.
1. Love the theme as do my teenage sons.
2. We all have basic playing skills.... AFMr high score of 7.5 bill.
3. Not interested in an hour long game and probably don’t have the brainpower to embrace all of the rule set anyway. We are somewhat of a casual player type.
So, do you think The Hobbit is even a close fit?
If you have basic playing skills and are casual players, long game times shouldn’t be a concern for you. Like others have stated, 5 minutes would be the average for casual players.
A lot of the negative opinions (and the temporarily lower prices) are based on facets of the rule set that a casual player will never experience (ie the final wizard mode). However - those concerns are being addressed in the upcoming patch this weekend.
For the casual player, there are *31* modes to play - all with different videos/sounds/call outs, multiple multi-balls modes, etc. - ie Plenty of content to keep you enjoying the game for a long time.
It’s a fantastic time to pick up a used game as prices will start increasing again after the patch this weekend.
