Band together to get the One Ring to Mount Doom in Lord of the Rings: Together to Mount Doom

August 31, 2022 - 5:10pm

Michael Rieneck, designer of the Spiel recommended title The Pillars of the Earth, and co-designer of Stefan Feld's Merlin, has teamed up with publisher Thames & Kosmos (known as Kosmos in the U.S.) to bring you the cooperative dice game “Lord of the Rings – Together to Mount Doom”.

There isn’t a lot of information released about the game yet but we do know that through clever use of dice, players will move the characters around on the board in an attempt to get Frodo to Mount Doom. If that happens, the players win! The only other information we have at the moment is the contents of the box. Those contents are: 1 game board, 50 playing cards, 20 illustrated playing figures with plastic holders, 8 dice, 1 dice book, 1 ring tile, 1 Gandalf tile, 1 Tree Beard tile, 1 set of instructions

Lord of the Rings – Together to Mount Doom plays 1-4 players, ages 10+, and has an estimated playtime of 50 minutes. The game has a tentative German release date of October 2022, although worldwide distribution is still unknown.

Where to start? Where to start? Hmm... I like to play games? Yeah, that's brilliant. <delete><delete><delete> I'll try again later.
