Lord of the Rings Board Game
Your task is to stop the Dark Lord Sauron from winning back the One Ring, which Frodo Baggins has inherited, and which Sauron will use to forever enslave the land. You must journey through Middle Earth, taking on the challenges of four of the most hazardous regions of the land - Moria, Helm's Deep, Shelob's Lair and Mordor - and destroy the ring in the volcanic fires of Mount Doom. Join Frodo and his friends Merry, Pippen, Fatty, and Sam on a perilous adventure across Middle Earth, using skill and fortune to guide you while preventing the Ringbearer from becoming corrupted.
