A Lord-of-the-Rings-themed version of Risk, with the following differences:

The map is of Middle Earth, and the tokens represent armies of that fictional world.
(Note that in this "Two Towers edition", the first version of the game, the map is incomplete, unless you own the expansion. For the newer version with complete map, see the reimplementation of this, the "trilogy edition".)

You play either good or evil.

Leaders, missions and sites of power have been added.

The One Ring acts as a timing mechanism, when it leaves the board, the game ends.
