An Unexpected Party is the second mission of Sierra Entertainment's 2003 video game The Hobbit.


"Despite his fear something awoke within Bilbo. He wanted to visit distant land, explore caves and carry a sword instead of a walking stick. For his own astonishment. Bilbo agreed to go."

On his way to Green dragon he needs to find Gammer's quilting needle, move Hanna's Butter Churn, play hide and seek with the four hobbit children called Hamfast, Bell, Hilda, and Sadoc. Help Sandyman fix the bridge by getting him a hammer from Carl Sandyman and three bundles of nails from the mill, scare off the crows for Holbert, Sneak into Hobart's garden and steal berries, sneak into the chicken coop and steal three eggs, open Lorella's locked chest's and collect provisions (Sugar, spice, wheat, three berries, three eggs, three apples, sausages and tea- cakes) for Bombur and finally enter the door to the Green Dragon.
