Role, board and card games around Tolkien’s work

Since Tolkien’s great success, his works have, of course, been realized in many different ways. And not only in radio plays and films, but also in all kinds of games. Some of them are included in the merchandise of other productions (films and musicals), some refer directly to the books. The games range from simple “children’s board games” and card games such as Mau-Mau to complex board games and collectible card games to (now 4) role-playing systems, tabletop games and complex conflict simulations.

The lecture Playful Middle Earth by Dr. Christian Weichmann at MagicCon 7 provides some information about what there was and is. And what is interesting and what is rather superfluous. One topic, which is left out for reasons of time, however, is computer games, of which there are, of course, some on Middle-earth.

Lecturer: Dr. Christian Weichmann
Duration: 60 min  -  The Lecture will be held in: german
Dr. Christian Weichmann has been a Tolkien and Fantasy reader for a long time.

Soon after its foundation he joined the "German Tolkien Society". He was a member of the board for a long time. And even now he still represents them again and again as a lecturer or quiz master at events. He also works for the association magazine "Der Flammifer von Westernis" and in the advisory board of the "GTS". His interest is in the whole work of Tolkien, especially the things that are often overlooked in the shadow of the Lord of the Rings, and also the person of Tolkien.

He earns his living as a technical software developer in Bonn.
