KOSMOS has announced a brand new The Lord Of The Rings game (thanks @sundancer for the news) that will be dropping as soon as August 2022! Der Herr der Ringe: Gemeinsam zum Schicksalsberg (The Lord Of The Rings: Together To Mount Doom - thanks Google) is on the way.

The initial information about this game has it as a one-to-four player cooperative affair. You will be charting Frodo's journey from The Shire all the way to Mount Doom using dice as the core mechanic. As they have mentioned, the "clever choices with dice" will allow you to move your figures across the game board, avoiding danger and looking to rush to Mount Doom!

We know very little about this so far but I am already on board with the idea. I would assume we're going to see dice allocation of some form being used to enable you to undertake particular actions. Hopefully, we'll learn more about this at Essen SPIEL.

EXIT: The Game - Shadows Over Middle-earth

This is the second of KOSMOS' The Lord Of The Rings games. The first of these came as part of their EXIT series, a one-shot puzzle-solving affair where you have to get your head around magic puzzles and riddles in Middle-earth.

In this game, Gandalf has sent you on a critical mission against the shadows that are rising in the background. You will be visiting different locations from Tolkien's Middle-earth whilst also working on solving all manner of interesting riddles.

I love the return of the awesome EXIT wheel that has you unlocking new cards and solving puzzles. It's also neat to see all of the Middle-earth appropriate props that come in this set! I can't wait to start ripping up and drawing on all these to see if I can work my way through this game.

As mentioned, this (and the other EXIT games) are one-shot affairs. But, it looks like good fun and will tide you over until Together To Mount Doom launches in August.

Are you going to be keeping an eye on KOSMOS' new project?
