Manufacturer: Ares GamesWhat if the Keepers of the Elven Rings had used their Rings of Power to challenge the might of the Dark Lord? What if the Balrog had risen out of Moria to bring fire and fury to the lands of the Free Peoples? What if the Council of Elrond had decided differently regarding the Fellowship of the Ring?
With Lords of Middle-earth, the first expansion for the War of the Ring Second Edition boardgame, players may explore these possibilities, together with many other ones, to create fresh gaming opportunities and new strategies.
Important personalities, previously featured in the game only through Event Cards, are represented by specific figures and rules.

As an added bonus, figures for Aragorn and Gandalf the White are provided, accessories to the game that fans have been eagerly awaiting!

- A must have expansion!
I was surprised by the inumerous aditions this expansion brings to the core game. The Balrog and the keepers of the elven rings dices are great. Did not used the "Council of Rvendell" rule though.
Other great adition is having Smeagol leading the Fellowship before reaching Mordor.
As a bonus we have new minitures to Gandalfa the white and Aragorn heir of Isildur.
It's a must have expansion indeed.
