...and they said we will hopefully see War of the Ring by the end of September!

As someone who became enamored by the idea of this game AFTER it was out of stock everywhere, I'm super excited by this news and just wanted to pass it along to anyone else who might be waiting

Good catch! cool

I'm in the same boat - well, a friend is to be precise. I have too many games as it is but I told him that this was THE LOTR game to buy, but like you saw it was out of stock everywhere.

Cheers!

Andy

Good to know. I've been looking at this game for over a year now, and today just saw that it was sold out everyone and got worried that they were eliminating it since Five Armies is releasing soon.

Good to hear that I'll still be able to pick this up. Maybe this Christmas will finally be the year.

Received the same-ish email recently. Ares stated it should be available by October. I'm stoked as I determined it was time to pick this up only to find it was out of stock everywhere.

I am very impatiently awaiting this.

Any update on a better time frame now that we're closer?

I ended up getting Five Armies instead. We'll see how that treats us, and if we like it then WotR is definitely on the list for next year.

Looks like early / mid december 2014...

Ares games have shipped to distributors late november... so just a case of getting from Italy to UK (for my FLGS)

Here's hoping. waylandgames.co.uk are suggesting release date to buy it as 16th December. That's cutting it fine.

So WotR is back in stock in a lot of retailers here in Australia - but just as I say this a lot of retails are now selling out (some aren't even putting the game on their catalogs as they are just filling back orders!)

Would be wise to try and snap up a copy ASAP if you haven't already

I managed to get me a copy (after over a year waiting for my order to be filled) - as well as a copy of Battle of Five Armies

Now need to find mates who are free to play it with surprise

An official reply from Ares Games. I'd emailed them directly, with
the response coming in a few days ago ... Walts
