Impossibly rare Tolkien board game from 1975.
“Two Towers” is a game simulation of the epic battle between the forces of good and the evil hosts of the Dark Lord over the one ring of power in the Third age”, as stated in the introduction.
Notes from the designers: “The game is basically a strategic version of the great war for the one ring. Orcs have a very slow movement rate because you would move slow too if you had iron shod shoes. Many characters and pieces had to be generalized to get the game done. If you wish, just add your own pieces to polish the game off if you desire more detail than provided by the counters included. Get a six-sided die; and the four books on the topic for extra information. Remember to watch the order of appearance, the time chart for Orc and Gollum rules and keep track of how often the ringbearer wears the one ring. Finally, we hope you enjoy the game and play it often.”
Game consists of:
Board (24” x 24”), Heavy paper, white with a greenish tint paper with black ink.
