War of the Ring v5

War of the Ring

Begone, foul dwimmerlaik, lord of carrion! Leave the dead in peace!

The warriors of Middle-earth join the epic battles of War of the Ring in version 5 of the rules summary and reference!

The latest expansion for one of my all-time favourite games, War of the Ring, has been out for a while now and I still haven’t been able to get it to the table. Outrageous! Warriors of Middle-Earth brings back some of the extra factions that were in the first edition of the game – Dunlendings, Corsairs, Ents – and adds some more – Dead Men of Dunharrow, Eagles, and Giant Spiders.

While we still haven’t seen the return of siege engines yet – they’re probably slated for the next expansion – all this extra stuff is bound to spice up this amazing game and create new strategies. Sailing troops up to attack the Grey Havens will probably be a popular one, for a start. And while you’re trying out these new tactics, you can refer to my new updated rules summary and reference. Now go get that cursed hobbit!
