Collecting Middle-Earth : A Lord of the Rings Board Game

Found in a dark corner of a second-hand shop in London, was covered in dust . Introducing my lovely-looking children board game by Eagle Games, designed by award-winning author Reiner Knizia, with artwork by the internationally acclaimed children’s book Dutch illustrators Ingrid and Dieter Schubert. The aim of the game is of course to move from the Shire to Mount Doom, attempting to be the first hobbit to rid the world of the dark lord, Sauron :) Along the way, the brave hobbit will encounter friends to guide him but also foes that can hinder his progress to Mount Doom. As the hobbits move through Middle-Earth the flying Nazgul will constantly trying disrupt them in their quest to Mount-Doom. Game play has deliberately been kept very simple for very young players, a cute little game to introduce young children to the enchantment of Middle-Earth . Added to my Collection! :)
