Middle-earth Quest Boardgame from FFG

Middle-earth Quest Boardgame from FFG Can't Post

Middle-Earth QuestFantasy Flight Games' new boardgame, 'Middle-earth Quest' is now shipping. The FFG web site has a PDF of the rulebook and a QuickTime trailer movie. This looks to be an interesting offering, not as heavy as the FFG 'War of the Ring' game, but certainly more complex than the Knizia 'Lord of the Rings' co-operative boardgame. [Trailer] [PDF]

The time period is sometime before the main events of LotR, with Sauron extending his power from Mordor; one player portrays Sauron, with up to three opponents portraying heroes who try to hinder his plans. The heroes win or lose against Sauron as a group.

Hopefully, when I have actually played the game, I will report on it more informatively. [Middle-earth Quest]

Your selflessness and dedication to TORN are humbling, cal. Cool

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

about this game. I believe I just may pick it up to play with my board game group. Thanks for reminding me of the money I have to spend on my geeky interests. WinkLaugh

You're lucky! [In reply to] Can't Post

I never have anyone to play board games with.

In fact, when I was little, I used to play with my teddies...
