As announced on Thursday, Ares Games has begun taking pre-orders for their Anniversary Release of War of the Ring 2nd edition over on their website. They are only going to be making a couple thousand of these, and orders are only being taken for 2 days (they've even got a little counter on their website showing how much time is left). If you want in on this once-in-a-lifetime, very-limited-edition set, you'll have to decide quick and put in your order right away.
This new version has a larger board, hand-painted miniatures, and incorporates all the FAQ and E&C that've been made for the game over the past several years. The game is compatible with the expansion sets, however. So no worry about those suddenly becoming obsolete.
But time is running out. Better order your copy now.
