Description Edit | History

Game included with The Wargamer Magazine Issue #1 and later republished as a stand-alone.

Grand Strategic, low complexity (2 page rules), game of the War of the Ring from the Tolkein book. Apparently unlicensed publication was a hoot to play with the orc hordes rolling out in waves. Needs more beer than pretzels to enjoy, but charming in a 1970's DTP kind of way.
