Fantasy Flight Games are certainly doing nothing to quell my love of Middle-earth right now. Two friends and I have been playing through their Lord of the Rings: The Living Card Game and, well, loving it. So, we were overjoyed to see they had created five new gamemats for use with the game.
The first of these is the Fellowship 1-4 Player Gamemat which you can see above! This mat features a map of Middle-earth with space for four players to play their cards on the tabletop. It also has a separate section which will keep the Quest all tidy featuring wonderful artwork too.
I think I need this in my life. However, this isn’t all we have to look forward to as Lord of the Rings fans. We also have these four mats, two of which are based on the cover art for their Hobbit Saga expansion.
The Hobbit & On The Doorstep mats look superb and show off some of the amazing scenes from the books. I think I might end up using these mats for every tournament I go to, even if its Netrunner or Star Wars: Destiny.
If you prefer The Lord of the Rings then you also have The Black Riders…
…and The Flame Of The West for you to check out. The first mat shows off one of the scenes from Fellowship Of The Ring as Frodo and companions are hunted by the Nazgul.
It shows off Eowyn clashing with the Witch-King outside the walls of Minas Tirith. A fantastic moment for a brilliant character in the world of Lord of the Rings.
I think these mats are, effectively, nothing but bling, but they are so awesome I might find myself owning all of them.
What do you think of the designs?
