Hobbit Appetite (1C294) Wiki

General Strategy

On the one hand, Hobbit Appetite can seem to be a bit excessive in a culture that has so much access to healing, especially since Hobbit Appetite wagers something Hobbits do well (choking twilight) for another effect they do well with (healing). Access to Sting, Aragorn, Heir to the White City, and other twilight-removing cards soften the cost of this event. Let Folly Be Our Cloak could be a circuitous way to move wounds around; however, the potential hand-clog does not make this a viable strategy.

It is worth noting that Hobbit Appetite is cheaper than other forms of healing such as Boromir, Defender of Minas Tirith or Have Patience, and is made more versatile by its flexible cost. At the same time, it is possibly less effective by cost than cards like Hard Choice, Ring of Barahir, Store Room, or You Must Help Us. In theory, a player could exchange 3 twilight to remove six burdens with Sam, Son of Hamfast. Stealth events such as Hobbit Stealth can possibly mitigate added twilight.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Weak Versus...

  • As Hobbit Appetite gives your opponent additional twilight and can clog your hand, it can sometimes do more harm than good in a deck.
