Many, many years ago the One Ring was forged by the Dark Lord Sauron to control all of Middle-earth. Naturally, its awesome strength is much desired by those who wish for power. For a long time its whereabouts remained secret, but recently its power has been sensed again in the land of its creation. The forces of evil are mounting a ferocious hunt to find the One ring, while those of a gentler nature are keen to keep it from their reach.
This special edition of Risk allows you to decide the fate of the people of Middle-earth. you will play either a Good or an Evil force trying to gain control of the land. Unite your forces in battle to ensure that Middle-earth falls into the right hands.
You may also choose to use the Risk The Lord of the Rings gameboard to play standard Risk, by leaving out the special elements.
Note: This game features the first two parts of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, so it does not include Gondor or Mordor.
I love the game, so many ways to play it. Lord of the Rings Risk has strategies, alternate rules, battle, 2-6 players...its got it all. New to this game which sets it apart from old Risk, is that it has Leaders, Strongholds, and Sites of Power. This adds many more elements of strategy. Risk fans will love it even more than the original. Lord of the Rings Risk RULES!!!! Cool site for it >>> Http://lordoftheringsrisk.com
Risk: Lord of the Rings Edition turned out to be an excellent game. I was expecting just another cruddy boardgame sequel like all the monopolies, but this new risk really impressed me! With a completely different map, one must develop new strategies of war and conquest and, of course, take plenty of risks! I implore you to buy this game, it is as good as, if not better than, the original risk boardgame.
Risk: The Lord of the Rings is the first real strategy game I've played since I got back into gaming, and I love it. I've only played it once so far, but that was enough to make me go out and purchase my own. Although we played it for nearly five hours, the time flew by, and I can't wait to try it again. I'd never played any edition of Risk before this, but now I'd like to try the others. This game will definitely get a lot of play from me and my group, and I highly recommend it to everyone.
