Are you a fan of Hobnanigans? It’s now back in Lord of the Rings Online through October 4. Hurry, you only have a few days left!
The news was shared earlier on Twitter by the team. If you’re unfamiliar with Hobnanigans, it’s also known as Chicken Ball or Chicken Hockey in the game. it’s a sport which sees two teams trying to maneuver a chicken through the goal of the other team. You do this by hitting the chicken with bats (poor chicken) to, um, encourage the chicken.
According to the lotrowiki.com,
“It's much like soccer, football, and baseball mixed together. you're supposed to bat the chicken (as if batting a soccer ball) to your opponent's side of the field and into the goal, between either of the two goal posts. For example, the player with a red cloak and a red stick has to hit the chicken to the goal on the blue team's side of the field. The red player will see a blue banner above the wooden goal posts. That's the goal that the red player has to hit the chicken through.”
