The Lord of the Rings dice building game

Time to get excited..   WizKids have now put up the overview for their upcoming game “the Lord of the Rings: Dice building game“. This could definitely be a replacement for my Quarriors, much more fun to be battling orcs rather than ‘fictional’ creatures. (hehe).

Some info about the game,

Players start out in The Shire with only Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee with access to purchasing Bill the Pony. As they approach Rivendell, they encounter their first of Sauron’s forces— represented by Sauron’s Enemies dice. They also meet the Elves who help to equip them with Weapons, Heirlooms and Gifts— four of each are included with the game; one of each type is dealt out randomly each time you play. As the Fellowship strikes out from Rivendell to travel through the Mines of Moria, more of Sauron’s minions rise up to challenge the players but the players also now have access to six characters from The Lord of the Rings trilogy— the 6 character cards are double-sided to provide twelve different playable characters.

This is going to be available March 2013, this is going on my ‘must own list’.   You can read all about it on the WizKids blog
