The Silver Line edition of Reiner Knizia's The Lord of the Rings is on sale!
Lord of the Rings: The Board Game | Published 13 September 2010

Evil is stirring again in the black lands of Mordor. Brave heroes are needed to stand against the terrible might of Sauron, and the time for action is nearly at hand. The fate of all Middle-earth rests on the shoulders of a brave Fellowship of hobbits...

The new Silver Line Edition of The Lord of the Rings is now available at your local retailer and on our webstore! This unique cooperative board game captures the magic and tension of J.R.R. Tolkien’s legendary trilogy.

From the brilliant mind of Reiner Knizia, The Lord of the Rings puts 2-5 players in the roles of hobbits in a classic tale of good versus evil. As players travel through the dangerous Mines of Moria and defend the citadel of Helm’s Deem, they must work together to fight off the growing influence of Sauron. If they falter in their quest just a little, they risk succumbing to the growing darkness.

The new Silver Line Edition of The Lord of the Rings retains the beautiful illustrations of John Howe and the elegant gameplay mechanics that has made it such a fan favorite. With updated graphics, new components, and a clear rules presentation, this is the best way for friends and family to immerse themselves in The Lord of the Rings!

Please note that due to its redesigned, smaller components this new Silver Line Edition of The Lord of the Rings will not be compatible with previously released expansions.

Gather your fellowship and begin the journey to your friendly local retailer today!

Based on the beloved literature of J.R.R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings: The Board Game lets 2-5 players cooperate to stop the Dark Lord Sauron from winning back the One Ring and enslaving the land. Join Frodo and the Fellowship on their perilous adventure across Middle Earth, and use your skill and fortune to guide you.

I wonder if FFG will make those expansions. Friend and Foes, Sauron expansion, and Battlefields.

I really enjoy this game...& the expansions ROCK if you can find them.

Agreed.  The Silver Line edition of LOTR definited needs the addon board sections and the Enemies cards.  With those additions to the game, LOTR is an incredible boardgame experience.

It's good to see the game is returning. I enjoyed it quite a lot back in the days. FFG really must re-release the first expansion, as well, though. Without it the game is incomplete. It's only with the first expansion that it comes into it's own.

The other expansions weren't worth it, though.

It looks like we have to wait also for some expansions for this edition. I hope that there will be some expansions for this version!

Been waiting for this one for quite some time! I hope Fantasy Flight also will reveal if they have plans to re-release the expansions, considering the original expansion are not compatible with this new Silver Line edition - even so, i have already ordered this from my local shop
