Board Description

Welcome to Middle Earth!

This map plays like a standard game, with a few things to take note of. Strongholds exist in the territories with an icon in them, and valiant defenders will fight extra long in these territories. However, these stronghold territories have a maximum of 15 armies. Be aware of the sea routes, as they connect ports and provide quick travel for armies of Middle Earth.

This Lord of the Rings map is inspired from Hasbro's board game version. New scenarios are in the works which will juice up the standard mode by adding some new bonuses, battle routes, and much more.

Enjoy and good luck!

Scenario 1: "Quick play"- This scenario enables an endless card scale on, and gives players two fortify moves per turn.

Enjoy and good luck!
