Games Workshop announces The Lord of the Rings: Quest to Mount Doom

The Lord of the Rings: Quest to Mount Doom is a new board game from Games Workshop which pits players against one another in the quest to destroy The One Ring at Mount Doom. Players recreate the epic journey which the Fellowship undertook … except they’re not together. Each player is hunting The One Ring hidden somewhere in Middle-earth without having the other players know that they’ve found the ring once discovered and avoiding the eye of Sauron at the same time. Players can choose from their favorite characters in the Fellowship including Aragorn, Gandalf, Legolas, Frodo and Gimli.

The Lord of the Rings: Quest to Mount Doom supports 2-5 players, aged 10+, and plays in 30-45 mins. The release date has not yet been announced but more information is expected later in the year on the Forge World Facebook page. See the news announcement from the Games Workshop website for more information.
