The Lord of the Rings: Confrontation is returning to the tabletop with Fantasy Flight Games with a new board, components and artwork streamlining the experience.

In Confrontation you take on the role of either the Fellowship or the forces of Sauron and must try and outwit your opponent through simple yet strategic placement of heroes and villains throughout Middle-Earth.

Through combat and subterfuge you can trick and battle your way towards Mount Doom where you must cast the ring back into the fires from whence it came.

New features:-

  • The rulebook contains additional clarifications to make the game even more accessible and easy to play.
  • This compact new edition features bridge-sized cards, as well as scaled down character stands and tiles, with new character cards to serve as reminders of character abilities. The game board now has visual reminders, such as character limit indicators and darker mountain borders, to help clarify play.
  • It features stunning new artwork for variant game Fellowship characters, as well as for several cards.

Certainly sounds like it could be a good addition to a Lord of the Rings collection and with the pedigree of Fantasy Flight and creator Reiner Knizia behind it, it should be fun too.

Do you think you’ll take up this Confrontation?
