With the release of its first expansion, we knew it was time to shine the spotlight on The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle Earth, a deeply thematic miniatures board game. Wildly popular, it scores over an 8 on Board Game Geek, and even more impressively sits in the Top 20 Thematic game out of thousands of ranked games.
The very first thing to mention is this is an app-driven game. However, for those who don't mind apps, it really enhances the play of the game - even saving your information so you can pick back up where you left off - generally keeping bookkeeping to a minimum!
Much like the source books, there isn't much time to dawdle as the enemy is afoot and there are missions that must be accomplished. The various difficulty settings are fantastic for players of all experience levels allowing everything from casual play to more strategic endeavors.
Solo play is also exceptional. Players can control one to three characters with relative ease and with the app there's not too much to manage. It's fantastic for enjoying the unfolding narrative with some light tactical and strategic elements. Good fun, and highly recommended!
