Hobnanigans! Lord of the Rings Online! October 4th! That’s about all the most recent tweet from the game promises, without providing you one whit of information about what Hobnanigans actually is supposed to be beyond time-limited. Fortunately, a bit of searching will reveal that it’s really pretty simple, as it’s just field hockey… played with live chickens. So you are essentially chasing around chickens and hitting them with sticks to get them to run through a goal.go bother those chickens until October 4th. And if you don’t really want to play but want to see what a lengthy dose of chicken-smacking looks like, you can check out our own MJ trying out a few rounds herself.
