Fantasy Flight Games Talks Tolkien Part II

Ostadan writes: Fantasy Flight Games' page of 'rants' has two items of interest to Tolkien fans; both are expansions of existing games.

War of the Ring: Battles of the Third Age

"Battles of the Third Age is also both a companion game and an expansion for the original. The tactical companion game allows you to recreate the battles of Gondor and Rohan on an all new double-sided game board. The expansion features more than 70 new plastic figures, over 100 new cards, new custom dice, and much more that will add tons of new play options to this classic game. War of the Ring: Battles of the Third Age is expected in April."

War of the Ring is a moderately complex strategic battle game, falling into the 'Risk on steroids' category; however, the Lord of the Rings theme is presented very well indeed. --Ostadan
