Good game worth buying
As the "Free peoples" you struggle to hold off the relentless forces of the "Shadow", while journeying to destroy the ring of power. As the "Shadow player", you seek the ring bearer and his companions to corrupt them before they can fulfill their mission, while crushing the strongholds and forces of the "free peoples"
Really fun game.
Disappointingly though, the figures could be of a higher grade.
War of the Ring 2nd Edition
Amazing Game, Fast delivery.
If you like Tolkien, you will love this game. If you like wargames, you will love this game. If you like Tolkien and you like wargames, this will probably become your favourite game. It is mechanically sublime and thematically rich. Whether you play as the Free Peoples of Middle Earth or Sauron's Shadow Forces, it is an extremely immersive experience that makes you feel like you are really at war in Middle Earth during the Third Age. I cannot recommend this game enough.
The only caution I will mention is that it is a very long game (4-6 hours once you're familiar with the rules, potentially longer on your first play or two) with a long setup time and lots of rules to learn. Anyone who doesn't like long heavy board games should probably avoid this one. However, if you are someone who even sometimes enjoys such games, then you should definitely invest the time and money into this one. You will not be disappointed.
