Hi, All! Recently picked up a copy of Fantasy Flight's War of the Ring and it looks SWEEEET indeed! I'm getting the rules together, downloading player aids from BGG, and I even have a few other folks interested enough to give it a shot!

I believe I saw here on BGG that there was a Gollum figure produced for the game. I'm thinking it was a promo item in a magazine. Can anyone provide me with more info.? Naturally, I'd like to actually HAVE one!!! Failing THAT, is there an existing figure I could use to substitute for him?

Thanks much!

Dan

It was originally available in a game magazine (I don't remember which one) and at a con. It was also available for a while as a "free with any other order" from Fantasy Flight's online store. That's where I got mine. I don't see it there anymore but you might still email them and ask.

Dan, you actually don't need a Gollum Figure to play War of the Ring.
But that Gollum you are asking was part of the German Spielbox (Boardgame magazine), I don't know which 2005 issue exactly. This magazines comes out every two months.
Therefore it will be German/Austrian/Swiss Geeksters which will have some Gollum figures, because of buying "Spielbox". Some of them did sell their Gollum on ebay.

Dan,

The Gollum figure for War of the Ring was produced by Spielbox magazine, which can be found online at http://www.spielbox.de/

To order any of their expansions, all you have to do is send an e-mail to barbara@nostheide.de asking to purchase expansions (you can pay using PayPal). They cost about 5 Euro each (and come with the magazine, in case you know German), and shipping depends on how many you order, but isn't too bad.

Spielbox also sells mini-expansions for Shadows over Camelot, Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne, Settlers of Catan, and St. Petersburg. I recently ordered three of them, and they came pretty quickly, and Barbara was very nice and helpful.

Well, I'm new and certainly no expert (!), but I know what I'VE done!!! Do a "search" from the home page for War of the Ring, then scroll down the screen. You'll find an extensive list of player aids to download.
While I'm on THAT subject, many thanks to those of you who have posted these!!! I know they'll be a big help when we make our first attempt at playing the game and wading through the rules (and all those exceptions!!!)

Dan
