If you are a LOTR fan who enjoyed RISK, you'll like this game.

Tom B.
Great board, wonderful graphics, and nice pieces (very intricate for such a massed produced game.)

There are TWO editions of Lord of the Rings: Risk. The latest version is called "Lord of the Rings: Risk - Trilogy Edition." It features a full map of middle earth, including Gondor and Mordor, as well as new missions, strongholds, etc.
Though this is a great game for any LOTR and Risk fan, don't fall victim to this lowball marketing ploy. Both editions were the exact same price when I saw them recently at a toystore - and boy did I kick myself for not waiting on the full version!

Game board:
The game board is a four fold design rather than a two fold design like the standard risk board. This makes the board seem less durable than the standard risk board.
The Map:
At first I was a little disappointed with the map, It does not show Gondor or Mordor, and I thought there could have been a little more detail put into some locations. The reasoning for not including Gondor or Mordor is that the manual states the game is based on the first two books of the trilogy. After playing several games on the board I have grown to like the map more and more. The balance of the continents seems to be pretty well thought out. Although Rhun can sometimes be held very easily by evil. Rhun is kind of the Austrailia of LOTR Risk, it isn't worth much bonus, but it is easy to hold. The rest of the continents are balanced well, mostly being hard to gain a bonus from them, especially when you have experienced risk players. Overall I'm very pleased by the map, but it could have been a little better with a few small changes.
Leaders:
Leaders and Strongholds can make a very big difference in the outcome of the game. You get to place a leader unit, represented by a shield, at the beginning of the game; you can also get leaders by drawing an "Appoint a Second Leader" Adventure card. What leaders do is travel along with your armies and give a +1 attack or +1 defense bonus to your single highest dice roll. So if you rolled a 5, 4, 1 you then have a 6, 4, 1. As you can imagine having a leader with you in the battle will greatly help your chances of winning. Your leader does not count as an army, it is just there to modify the dice.

The picture shows the Trilogy Version, but this is not what I got. Amazon told me they did not stock the Trilogy Version. So if this is the one you want, DON'T order this.

Well, many love the Lord of the Rings and many boardgamers liked Risk (at least in the beginning)...but Risk gets boring with more and more playings, you never have enough "meat". This Risk variant cleverly combines the theme of the Tolkien epic with new Risk elements like cards, leaders and fortresses. Leaders and fortresses give you a +1 on your highest die roll, which can be decisive in smaller battles. The cards are aquired by conquering so called places of power which are spread over the map. The map itself is Middle-Earth in its glory.
Two players are good powers and the other two players evil. Both armies have their own pieces portraying from 1 to 3 to 5 armies each. The fellowship moves over the map and when they leave the game is over...this is a nice timing mechanism which prevents the never-ending Risk games we often see in the old classic game.
All in all, a very worthy Risk variant and a must buy for Lord of the Rings boardgame enthusiasts. Also, followers of Risk should at least look into this variation on the theme, a good addendum for your Risk collection.

If you like Risk, you'll love this! And while you don't have to like LOTR to enjoy it, it certainly adds to your enjoyment. The units (Elven Archers, Orcs, Riders of Rohan, Dark Riders, Eagles and Cave Trolls) are nice eye candy, which stand for 1,3,5 armies. (And I highly recommend you treat them as such since the board will get cluttered otherwise). The variant rules not only make it more fun, but more strategic...
1) Leaders -- increase highest die roll by 1 (offense and defense)
2) Strongholds -- increase highest die by 1 (defense only)
3) Middle Earth map -- some impassable boundaries of water and mountains
4) Three different types of adventure cards -- Mission, Event and Action
Adventure Card Examples...
Mission: Moving a Leader into a Site of Power country grants bonus armies
Event: "Raiders" card... draw three country cards; each loses half their armies
Action: "Wormtongue" card... remove 2 armies from country you're attacking and add them to your country
Action Example 2: "Under the Mountain" card... attack a country through a normally impassable mountain
But what really makes this game shine is the ending. Instead of the often times tedious prolonging end game of regular Risk (one player must conquer everything) this is based on a time limit. Independent of gameplay is the One Ring that advances through one country after each person's turn -- 16 countries/turns. However, that's not set since people can play cards to impede its movement, and there are three countries where a 4 or greater must be rolled before it can advance. One of those is the very last country.
