Description Edit | History

A new version of Risk, with the following differences:

The map is of Middle Earth, and the tokens represent armies of that fictional world.

You play either good or evil.

Leaders, missions and sites of power have been added.

The One Ring acts as a timing mechanism, when it leaves the board, the game ends.

Edit: I believe the information at the bottom is incorrect. Those numbers are from the trilogy edition. This version is the "Two Towers edition"

I think it should be :
40 Elven Archers/Orcs
12 Riders of Rohan/Dark Riders
6 Eagles/Cave Trolls
2 shields per color

  • Gameboard
  • 4 Complete armies in different colors: (90 pieces per army)

- 60 Elven Archers/Orcs
- 18 Riders of Rohan/Dark Riders
- 9 Eagles/Cave Trolls
- 3 shields per color (only use 2)

  • 42 Territory Cards (9 Good, 9 Evil, 24 Neutral)
  • 2 Wild Cards
  • 40 Adventure Cards
  • The One Ring
  • 3 Red Dice
  • 2 Black Dice
