Smaug The Dragon Is Dead...

The dragon's treasure lies in the depths of the Lonely Mountain. The Free Peoples army awaits in the valley of Dale, while a vast host of the Shadow approaches. Goblins climb the mountain sides to attack their enemies from above. Unexpected help may come to save the Free Peoples - the Eagles of the Misty Mountains and Beorn the Skin-changer - but will they arrive in time, before all is lost?

In The Battle of Five Armies, one player leads the forces of Bolg, son of Azog - a powerful horde of Ocrs, Goblins, and Wargs, reinforced by Great Bats from Mirkwood. His opponent commands the Free Peoples - Wood-elf warriors, stout Dwarves, and brave Men of the Lake, united by the wisdom of Gandalf the Wizard.

Many possible variables affect the outcome of the battle. Can the magic of Gandalf turn the tide? Will the valor of Thorin Oakenshield prove decisive and break the ranks of the bodyguard of Bolg? Will Bilbo Baggins use his magic Ring to save himself on Ravenhill?

Great Middle Earth Slug Fest!
A worthy successor to its big brother--WOTR--and a beautifully designed game in its own right. Asymmetrical sides clash in a cauldron at the foot of Lonely Mountain. The designers obviously love the book and the game sits very close to the text, making this a class act that shows respect and love for a literary classic.
