Absolutely love this board! There is one bug - sorry not sure where to write this. While all other "countries" have a limit over 20, Forodwaich has a limit of 20. It's the only place that has a limit of 20, so I figured it was a bug. Thanks!

Excellent map. I play only this board for years! I am lord of the rings fun and I like it!
It's exactly the same with the LOTR board game from the known company.

Perfect job! Thanks in advance!

1 fortify limit is annoying, but outside of that, a very fun board.

I'm a fan of Lord of the Rings, and wanted to like this board more, but I didn't enjoy it too much

Appearance is rather confusing. Way too hackly continental borders, especially towards the Misty Mountains. Zigzags make it hard to orientate which is whose. Even apart from that it would have been far more visually appealing without them. Then borders within continents are black. If a player chooses black colour then borders become indistinguishable. Should have picked a neutral colour or forbid players choosing black. Mordor is too heavily and easily defended. It should be open from the East or SE.

OK board. Like others have said more fortifications would help, and repeating card scale + terrs with defensive advantage can easily lead to long stalemates.

Quite a fun board. I agree with Sirdakka, increasing the number of fortifications would help out due to how territories are laid out.

Double fortification in normal play would improve this I feel, and light fog shouldn't be the default - can descend into a boring stalemate scenario with complete lack of flexibility due to troop caps.

Nevertheless, great fun 4-6 man medium fog imo

It's not a bad board. But there is tendency to get into an everlasting stalemate for longer games. The territory unit limits and enclosed continents dont help this.

Nice emulation of the LOTR Risk board.

Just not fun in any way. A big board full of seeming random continents, very few choke points or defensible positions, sprinkled with territories that have dice advantages just to slow things down even further. The repeating card scale makes for interminable games - you just sit and wait for someone to screw up or someone else to get lucky.

Fun, balanced board based off an actual LOTR Risk board. The ability to attack by sea makes things more interesting.

This rating is mostly based of a 2p game. This is a "first turn win" map with only 2 players. Maybe it's more fun with more players.

Great board. Well balanced continents and choke points; multiple strategies. Based on the Risk LOTR game. Author did a good job adapting the rules to WarGear.
