The best Lord of the Rings adventure game. A 3-D, high quality game. Very easy to learn, set up and play, even with non gamers. Very enjoyable game.

This game was okay. Predictable after 1st play. We messed up the first time not paying attention to the "eye". Battles may have been better but we never did any. Point system not much fun.

Great for avid movie fans who aren't looking for a complex game. The production value is quite high, with 3D board elements, and good pictures. The game has a few flaws though.

Fun to re-live the story, the 3D board is pretty interesting. Almost feels like a choose-your-own-adventure book as you decide which characters to control along the ringbearers journey to Mt Doom!

The components are the only impressive feature. The game itself seems to have a fatal flaw and "hangs" Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas if Pippin moves forward too quickly. Considering they had the chance to fix the problems with the other two and actually made it worse while apparently playtesting this installment even less (if possible), I'm not impressed...

I've only played this once, and was frustrated by many of the mechanics and things that didn't seem to fit or work right, and couldn't find any support for the game. Maybe I'll try it again sometime. I feel bad rating it this low, since it was a gift from my wife, but it really wasn't as fun as I'd hoped the one time I played.

Gave it to my brother- and sister-in-law, who happened to find the first one at a yard sale. Maybe if they (or I) can find the Two Towers game, we may try the whole thing just to see what it's like.

Only a bit better than the others in this series as the deluxe edition (same price) has a second game on the back allowing just the Fellowhip to move to Mordor. Great for parts or following the movie story with kids and family. Little or no strategy involved. Trashed it. One of the few games I've ever trashed (along with the other two in this series).

This game sucks.
It's abysmally dull, it has nothing to offer at all in replay value, and we beat the game without ever moving six of the nine characters. Three boards were never used, and the "evil army tokens" were never seen.

It has three-dimensional bits and is based on LotR (the movie, not even the book!). No other merits.
A merchandise product rather than a game.

Well, my son and I unboxed this (it was 2$ at the thrift store) and tried it out, knowing that it was rated as a real stinker here on the 'geek. Yup. It was really bad- we had fun trying to get more 'good points' than each other, but the rules were so bad that we couldn't really tell if we'd ended the game or not. We have the version w/ the bonus game, and so we set it up as well, hoping it would redeem the game. No luck. 5 turns in I got a card saying 'move Frodo to the end, game over.' WTF? Just like that? At least the rules for the bonus game weren't awful. It has been disassembled and the game tiles will be recycled as a pnp, so my 2$ isn't totally lost!

The rules are impossible to understand. To the extent that any of it is understandable, the game is totally luck-based. Not only that, but if you played it enough, you could memorize what the cards do for certain characters on certain spots.

This game is possibly the worst board game I've ever played. However, it has a bonus game which I am in the midst of modifying, which should make it fun! It's not ready yet, but is supposed to play 2 to 6 players.

Not quite as big a slap in the face as the Fellowship Rose Art game, but close. Playing any in this series is like being slapped in the face with a glove - one filled with vomit.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King follows - to an astounding conclusion - the epic journey of men, hobbits, elves, dwarves and the rest of Middle-earth's creatures and cultures as they wage the ultimate fight for good against evil.

Sauron's forces have laid siege to Minas Tirith, the capital of Gondor, in their efforts to eliminate the race of men. The once great kingdom has never been in more desperate need of its king. But can Aragorn answer the call of his heritage and become what he was born to be? In no small measure, the fate of Middle-earth rests on his broad shoulders.

Relive the adventure of New Line Cinema's Academy Award winning epic film through The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Board game - the final game based on The Lord of the Rings epic movie trilogy. With majestic images from the film, life long followers or first time fans will find the game uniquely challenging, yet easy to play, as this saga of good against evil continues.

(Deluxe Edition Notes

Flip the game tiles to reveal the BONUS "Journey to Mount Doom" Game. Players travel from the Shire through the entire Lord of the Rings Trilogy by moving Frodo toward Mount Doom and keeping him from Sauron's evil gaze.
