Description Edit | History

Players take on the roles of Frodo and Sam on their quest to destroy the Ring in Mt. Doom. The board develops as the game progresses as the Hobbits search for Mt. Doom. They will encounter friend and foe alike as they make their way around the map. Some encounters hurt them (Orks, Trolls, etc.) and some help them on their quest (Gandalf, Ents, Aragorn, etc.) The game ends when one of the Hobbits reaches Mt. Doom. Players then tally their encounter chips with the highest score winning.

Lord of the Rings - The Search is part of the Kosmos two-player series.

8 English Rules formatted to fit in box
This is the English Translation reformatted into a PDF file so it can be printed back to back with 2 columns of information per page and only 3 sheets of paper (just cut off white space at the bottom to fit in box - I did it this way so printer prints on A4 white paper without stopping to insert different paper size) Feedback comments thumbs up welcome ☺ Thank you.
