Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation

(2002)

Stratego-like game themed around Lord of the Rings. Players each control a force of 9 characters (light vs. dark) whose identities are hidden from their opponent at the beginning of the game. Combat is resolved by playing special cards.

Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation has also been the object of an extended edition (see Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation (Deluxe Edition)) comprising the original characters and a full set of new characters.

Well, Stratego is a hallmark board game and there’s few to say about this LotR game as it’s all based on Stratego. In my opinion, the addition of those special cards may bring a richer flavor to the confrontation which would be too much of the same stuff if this game were to be created without them.
