The restricted beta testing of HUNT FOR THE RING just started! Look out for this great addition to the WAR OF THE RING line in Q2 2017. Thanks to Ralf Schemmann for the photo.

Question: does it play like whitechappel and Fury of Dracula 3rd edition?
Answer: It's broadly in the family, yes. Let's say is the son of Whitechapel and War of the Ring... not surprisingly, considering the authors.

Question: will they be a painted edition
Answer: In the regular retail edition, no.

Question: is it a expansion for WoTR
Answer: actually it's a stand-alone game (with some mechanics reminiscent of WOTR, such as a dual action dice/event card system, but many, many differences, too!)

Question: This game ties into WoTR somehow?
Answer: It ties in in the sense that it retells the travel from Bag End to Rivendell, which is not covered in WOTR

There seems to be a Frodo, a Gandalf and, or course, the Nazgûl.

I guess Gandalf will be used to delay the Nazgûl, deploy fake tracks to misguide the Black Riders, and lure them away from Frodo.

Yes, this is only a playtest kit assembled by one of the playtesters and using bits from other games.

The Nazgûl are the ones from the First Edition of War of the Ring.

Well, the Nazgûl were on horseback in this part of the books so I wouldn't hold my breath for it.

No, they're "the Black Riders" until they get washed away at the Bruinen, near Rivendell.
They have to ride black horses in this game!
We already have the flying ones for WotR.

Thanks for posting this in the War of the Ring forum. I would not have known about otherwise. Now I will be watching for when I can buy it.

For the playtest? Why not?

I am using Carcassonne Meeples for my Nazgûl in my tests.

I wonder if that's Strider standing in front of the BoFA game image.

Thanks for uploading!! This thing is quite a tease, though!

So many questions on this: How many players (1 vs up to four, so 2-5, probably?), what's the MSRP, what's the Design team that's talked about in the text (all of these should be in the text of the booklet in the back, except all of the answers are masterfully covered by the figures in front)?

And: Indeed, who ist the person on the very left, Strider? Ok, nevermind, that's not Strider, that's someone from Sword & Sorcery. Also, what hexes of lush jungle do my eyes behold on the very left side of the picture?
