Journeys in Middle-earth


Two ends of the spectrum for this batch of releases from Fantasy Flight. On the one side, you've got the cooperative fantasy board game from the Lord of the Rings franchise, Journeys in Middle-earth. On the other, you've got the sci-fi RPG book full of new NPCs for the Star Wars franchise, Allies & Adversaries. Take your pick, as both are now available.

Characters at the start of the story will (hopefully) have changed by the end of the story. They go through a whole arc, growing as they learn more about themselves and the world around them. The characters in the Lord of the Rings certainly do. And that's transferred to Journeys in Middle-earth, the upcoming board game from Fantasy Flight. In this preview, we get a look at how that will work within the game.

Many of Fantasy Flight's games are accentuated with an app that enhances your gaming experience. One nice thing about doing that is Fantasy Flight can then release new adventures as downloads for said app. Though they're going a step further with the Hunt for the Ember Crown adventure for Journeys in Middle-earth, as they've also got a Villains of Eriador Figure Pack that you can get to go along with it.

There are many dangers in the world of Middle-earth. But for every danger, there's a hero waiting to cut it down. In this preview for the upcoming Journeys in Middle-earth board game from Fantasy Flight, they're showing off the various heroes that players can find within the game.

While Middle-earth has places like the Shire or Rivendell that are nice places to kick up your feet and relax, there's also plenty of places where you need to make sure you have your sword, axe, or bow ready to defend yourself. In this preview from Journeys in Middle-earth, Fantasy Flight looks into how combat works in this new, upcoming board game.

An evil is brewing in Middle-earth. And I don't mean that orcs have opened up a microbrewery and are selling Orcish Ale (it has chunks of meat in it!). No, Something far more sinister is afoot. And it's up to the civilized races to find out just what that is. That's the story in Journeys in Middle-earth, a new board game coming from Fantasy Flight. In this preview, we get a look at the different heroes and how they work.

If there's one thing that people do in Middle-earth, it's go exploring while out on an adventure. They're just going from one place to another all the time. And in Journeys in Middle-earth, a new board game coming from Fantasy Flight, you'll be doing that as well. But, how will it work? In this preview, we learn just that.

The forces of the evil Sauron are massing. The lands of Middle-earth are threatened by a great darkness. Only by banding together can the free peoples of the land stop these terrible plans. And that's just what you'll be doing in The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth, a new board game announced by Fantasy Flight Games.
