Board Description

~War of the Ring~

~{~ FREE FOR ALL ~}~

By Kjeld

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The varied peoples and monsters of Middle Earth duke it out for supremacy over all the land. Eight different factions, each with a unique starting location, are available.

Each territory has maximum unit count equal to 10 + 5 x bonus (for example, a territory of bonus 2 would have a unit max of 10 + 5 x 2 = 20). Unmarked and water territories can hold unlimited units, but grant no bonus.

Default dice: attacker kills 70%, defender kills 80%

Water to land: attacker kills 60%, defender kills 80%
