Each individual game of journeys in Middle-earth is a single adventure in a larger campaign. You'll explore the vast and dynamic landscapes of Middle-earth, using your skills to survive the challenges that you encounter on these perilous quests. Reveal the looming forests, quiet clearings, and ancient halls of Middle-earth, while also controlling the enemies you encounter. Whether you're venturing into the Wild on your own or with close companions by your side, you can write your own legend in the history of Middle-earth.
Embark on your own adventures across J.R.R. Tolkien’s iconic world of Middle-earth as you and your friends become bold heroes working together to fight back against the dark forces threatening the land. You’ll battle villainous foes, make courageous choices, and strike a blow against the evil arrayed against you, all as a part of a thrilling campaign that leads you across the storied hills and dales of Middle-earth.
A free companion app guides you through each adventure and an entire campaign, freeing you and your companions to stand together as a single Fellowship and battle the darkness. The app fills each adventure with content from a host of possibilities, ensuring a unique experience every time you play and allowing you to leave your own mark on Middle-earth.
Build your own Fellowship from six bold heroes—including Aragorn, Gimli, and Bilbo—and use their unique skills and abilities to overcome challenges and confront Orcs, Goblins, and other vile creatures. Throughout your journeys, you’ll discover lost treasure, uncover forgotten lore, and unite against the shadow and corruption spread across the land.
Each hero is characterized by a unique deck of skill cards they use to ward off dangers and make progress in their adventures. Rather than leaving your fate up to the roll of the dice, you must carefully manipulate your deck, choosing which skills to use and which to save for the tests you face. Only by properly managing your skills can you hope to complete your quest.
Take on one of six roles with each new adventure to gain experience, hone your skills, and add new cards to your deck. You could become your Fellowship’s Captain, helping the party prepare for any situation. Or you could be a Hunter, attacking enemies for heavy damage. Ultimately, you determine how your character evolves over the course of your adventures.
From Gondor to the Grey Mountains, there’s no telling where your adventures could take you. Many journeys will see you exploring a selection of the game’s 22 journey map tiles where you confront threats and interact with the denizens of Middle-earth. Certain adventures, however, bring you to the battle map tiles for a more tactical experience. Whether you’re attacking an Orcish encampment or exploring the ruined remains of a great hall, you’ll draw upon all your skills to complete these missions.
During your travels, you’ll be brought face-to-face with marauding Orcs, towering Trolls, and darker enemies, all brought to life with the game’s 25 stunning enemy miniatures. The companion app also gives each of these enemies their own unique behavior, so as they hunt and attack, you’ll need to adapt your strategies to counter the monsters that you face.
With so much ground to cover and multiple side quests to unlock, every campaign will tell your own tale of adventure and heroism and, no matter what path you take, your adventures will culminate in a climactic finale where the fate of all the peoples of Middle-earth could be at stake. Gather your friends, pack your bags, and find your fortunes in Middle-earth!

I travel around a lot and so won’t always have a connection especially if abroad so this could be a pain. As I said it’s a minor issue and certainly not enough to drop a score. (Edit* if you’re on limited data, you only need to have the internet available on startup, once assets have been acquired you can kill the connection)
Back to the game and if you’re familiar with FFGs way of rule making then you’ll fall into this game in no time at all recognising similar terminologies etc.
The game is played via the aforementioned app which sets the scenario and map out with easy to understand descriptions for you to set up the table, then it describes encounters and points of interest that you’ll need to investigate to further the game. All of the in box items are lovingly designed and presented so it’s a joy to see the map expand in partnership with the app.
Nothing is so buried in a series of manuals that it takes ages to make sense of and as said before it’s an FFG game so it’ll feel familiar at first glance.
Top marks to the team behind this and I highly recommend it as an addition to your tabletop arsenal.
Map cards are I think quite detailed and varied enough to make the game look good as it starts to sprawl out across your table.
The app says the fog area gives you a clue as to which way the map tiles will go in but you will need to leave space all around the tiles because all of a sudden 3 map tiles will be added where you have your other pieces to the game set up.
The cardstock for map tiles is ok but they do feel a little bit on the flimsy cheapside compared to other fantasy flight games I own , like Descent 2.
The figures are sturdy enough with enough detail for you to paint should you wish to do so.
They thankfully are not warped and bendy like some earlier FF games where you have to put them in hot water just so they don't look like they had too many beers.
The app tries to make out that each time you play you will have a different experience.
In some way , yes and other ways ,no.
Each time you play it will be excatly the same adventure but just with some random encounters along the way.
I found this to be a little boring like playing monopoly but shifting the name of the places about and telling me it's a new experience.
Yes, ok you do get random encounters but the game will punish you if you take too long to investigate them.
This is the games way of making sure it doesn't run out of random encounters to fast.
It's quite a heavy box and the artwork is good as is the artwork to the playing cards, though a fair bit has been reused from Lotr Lcg.
I given it 4 stars but rate it as a 3.6 for playability.
Less for value for money.
It's not worth £75 , I would put it around £55.
FF will use the app development cost as an excuse but really they already have the structure from other games for this and it does feel like a bolt on.
I don't mind app driven games especially for solo gaming.
It is an easy game to teach and learn I think.
It's an ok game but I don't feel like I'm playing a hero from lord of the rings, it could be just Bob the barbarian of Sid the Hobbit.
They could have been and should have been more epic in feel.
