Become One of the Nine in WizKids’ New Boardgame

January 31, 2012 by dracs

WizKids, makers of the Lord of the Rings HeroClix range, have unveiled a new Lord of the Rings semi-cooperative boardgame. Take on the persona of one of Sauron’s sinister, faceless servants and stop the Fellowship in Nazgûl!

“You are one of Sauron’s most powerful minions: a Nazgul! You must work together with the other Nazgul to stop the cursed hobbits and destroy the resistance of men. But at the same time, you must strive to prove your own worth to the dark lord. After all, there are rumors that even the Witch-king can be killed, and Sauron may soon need a new leader for the Nazgul.”

That’s right now is your chance to play as one of the infamous Ring Wraiths.

In the game you and the other players are faced with three campaigns which you must complete before the Ring reaches Mount Doom. If it does than the world is saved from Sauron and you are out of a job.

Do  you like the sound of this game? Or do you think you will give this one a miss?
