#1 w/Battle of the Ring


This is a game for two or three players, designed to simulate the wars illustrated in the book "Lord of the Rings", by J.R.R. Tolkien. The board covers the area of Middle Earth, and all the major peoples mentioned in the book are included. However, since the literature on this particular war is obviously limited, the emphasis has been placed on speed of play and enjoyment, rather than on attempt to mirror the book. Nevertheless, the game includes the possibility of all the major battles mentioned in the book. A simple live or die combat table is used with no retreats, and zones of control and supply have no part in the game.

Very limited production, extremely rare.
