All about the hills the hosts of Mordor raged. The Captains of the West were foundering in a gathering sea.
The War of the Ring has begun...
The War of the Ring is a grand strategy board game that allows its players to immerse themselves in the world of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and experience its epic action, dramatic conflict, and memorable characters.
As the Free Peoples player you command the proud hosts of the most important kingdoms of the Third Age. From the horse-lords of Rohan to the soldiers of Gondor and the Elven Lords of Rivendell, you lead the defense of the last free realms of Middle-earth.
Face the evil minions of Sauron on the field of battle in a desperate attempt to delay their onslaught, while you lead the Fellowship of the Ring in the Quest for Mount Doom.
As the Shadow player you lead the hordes of the Dark Lord and his most powerful minions as they try to bring darkness to Middle-earth. Legions of Orcs, Trolls, Wolfriders and the dreadful Ringwraiths await your command. Hunt the Ring-bearer and bring the precious Ring to his Master, or crush your enemies with your unstoppable armies.
This is your chance to forge the destiny of an age...
