Lord of the Rings: Battlefields Expansion

Publisher: Fantasy Flight Games

Designer: Reiner Knizia

Release date expected to be Oct/Nov 2006


An expansion to the Fantasy Flight Game Lord of the Rings.  I don't have any pictures yet (10/06).  The game will be available from for around $27.95, plus shipping and all that stuff.


From the ancient ruins of Weathertop to the conflict at the Black Gate of Mordor, the journey of the Fellowship of the Ring is marked with battle. The armies of Sauron are on the march, and unless the courage and faith of the Fellowship can hold, the Shadow will be victorious.

The new Battlefields expansion for Reiner Knizia's acclaimed Lord of the Rings board game focuses on the deadly combats that the Fellowship must survive on its quest to destroy the One Ring. Now in addition to guiding the Fellowship through its many perils, the players also help to hinder or defeat Sauron's powerful armies, because the farther enemies march on the battlefield board, the more destruction they cause and the closer Sauron comes to recovering the One Ring!

Will Aragorn arrive in time to defend against the Witch King at Weathertop? Will Boromir's courage hold against the savage Uruk-Hai? Will Gimli's axe be enough to withstand a horde of orcs at the Chamber of Mazarbul? Join the fight with the Lord of the Rings: Battlefields expansion.
