Since there's not enough information for this game out to create a boardgame listing for it. I figured I'd start something here. Sorry for those not interested in it sauron

Ares is teasing a new game called "Hunt for the Ring".


Quote:
Work in progress on THE HUNT FOR THE RING... Will Frodo and his companions get the help of Tom Bombadil, make it safely through the Barrow-Downs, and find temporary safety in Bree?

Quote:
It's two chapters, requiring about 1h of playing time each.

Spiffy!

And they can re-use molds from the other games. All is well in Middle Earth. Keep them coming!

new INFO
I asked Ares was it like whitechappel and Fury of Dracula 3ed
the reply

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.

New sculpts!?!?! That makes me really excited! I was let down that BotFA reused a lot of sculpts. I'll be interested to see how these headed figures work out!

2 to 5: 1 plays as Frodo & Co., while up to 4 more control the Nazgûl in their Hunt for the Ring.

That's an interesting thematic reversal. Usually 1-vs-many hidden-movement games (Whitechapel, Fury of Dracula) put the "1" in the evil role vs "many" in the role of good. Looking forward to this! sauronsauronsauronsauron

Still, it's the many hunters against to one hunted. I'm looking forward to seeing how they change it up in that context.

I am not really adding new games to my collection since I have enough. The Hunt for the Ring is the only game on my "must buy" list.

For me too, though I am also a bit interested in the Journey to Mordor Dice Game for FFG.
We have literally no light Tolkienesque game and I think JtM could potentially precisely fill that role.

LOTR: The Confrontation I would class as light. It's basically Stratego with cool powers and combat cards, one side trying to get Frodo to Mordor and the other just trying to eliminate him.

Good fun, quick, light game based on LOTR.
