Description

According to the editor’s comments at the beginning of the magazine, this particular issue (#8) had a print run of only 190. As probably only a few of those have survived, this is one of the rarest Tolkien-related board games. This game is not from LOTR, but from a battle from the Second Age (3430 S.A.) as described in The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien--although this game was published before the book was published, so the information for this game comes from the appendix found in The Return of the King. The battle depicts the struggle between the Last Alliance between Men and Elves lead by the elf king Gil-Galiad and the high king of men, Elendil, against the resurgence of Sauron and his evil creatures (The Nazgul and Orcs).
