"Reiner Knizia, one the worlds leading game designers, has created a board game which is a conversion of the classical fantasy book "Lord of the Rings" by J.R.R.Tolkien. Reiner Knizia was up to the task of developing a special game based on "Lord of the Rings". The game follows the Tolkien Story and can be played again and again with new adventures developing as dangers and challenges are presented to the players. Players make their way from the [Auenwald across Trollhoehen, by the] misty mountains and through the dark forest across the [level of Celebrant and finally again outside after Gorgoroth in the country Mordor]. The game asks the question: Does Does the fellowship triumph at the end, or does darkness rule?
