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
RINGSTM 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...

Local supply

I had wished for this game for a while, and it was only available overseas... Until now, at a more accurate more affordable rate and super quick delivery from Gameology. War of The Ring is a high end solid quality game board with detailed characters and a real book of rules. There are so many pieces, that it's a good idea to invest in small ziplock bags, otherwise you spend ages sorting! Need a head for politics, war, and name's.

Affordable, quick and great!

Was a good price, very quick shipping and a good product.


Great website to buy from and so helpful with every little thing. Quick and Easy.

Quick delivery, good price, fantastic game

Very happy with my decision to purchase this game through Gameology. They had the cheapest price in a very big field and delivery was super-fast. Would buy here again.

The game looks great but i am yet to play it because i am still painting up the figures (some were bent but that is standard with the plastic the production uses - a bit of hot water fixes them in no time). FYI Airbrushing with Vallejo Undercoat is a fantastic base coat for the figures and really makes the factions pop out.

Lord of the Fun

An awesome game covering the Lord of the rings and the what ifs.
The rules might take a bit to get you head around, just play-through your first and second game and then you should be set (there are some great tutorial videos out there on YouTube too).
Really has that epic lotr of the rings feel with large battles and trying to get the ring (or stop it) into mt doom.
Every move counts, each turn matters, a really in depth game that even people that are not fans of the books but are fans of strategy should enjoy.
I believe it is a must have in any board game collection.
