It is now Boxing Day in Australia and they are finally able to see ‘The Desolation of Smaug’ in all its glory. So now that nearly the whole world has fought spiders, ridden down a river in barrels, had a pile of fish dropped on them and played chicken with a Dragon, it’s time to go back and do it again. Most of the world has a Holiday weekend to fill with fun family activities, such as Holiday meals and sweet treats, opening loads of new toys, games, electronic devices and questionable clothing choices from your Second Aunt once removed, how about adding a return trip to Middle-earth. Even for those who have to go back to work for a day or two, there is Saturday, December 28. New movie releases have started to push ‘The Hobbit’ into fewer theaters and fewer screening options, so strike now while you still have a range of options. Let’s call this ‘DOS Line Party: The Sequel’ and go out and have fun once more with your friends, old and new. Wear costumes, bring trivia games with you, go out for Mooty meals together and enjoy the Fellowship of other Ringers.
If you are in Southern California, we even have a Line Party event set up for the Irvine Spectrum. You can find the info at the Facebook Event page. And if you would like to start your own Line Party Sequel page, make a note of it here in the comments section and see if we can’t have a second Global viewing party.
