Never before has an adaptation been made of Tolkien's great novel to make it appealing to younger children (6+). Reiner Knizia has succeeded completely in his masterful game for the whole family. There is a simple and a more advanced version of the game in the box, both playable on the same board and using most of the same pieces.

The art work by children's book illustrators Dieter and Ingrid Schubert is absolutely charming and just right for the age group.
