King Under the Mountain was the first game in a series of minigames that were made to promote Turbine's Mines of Moria. The minigame was published in 2008 on the Mines of Moria's official site, people could play the game by creating a account for free.[2] Players of The Lord of the Rings Online had the possibility to link this account to their LOTRO account, which enabled them to get special in-game rewards after they completed a deed.[2] It is not possible to play the minigames anymore, since Mines of Moria's official site has been taken offline.

A faction is defeated when he has lost all his regions. If not all factions have been defeated at the game's end, then the player with the most regions wins.[2] After each turn reinforcements are randomly placed in different regions.[1]

  • Durin's Crown: Win three battles after each other.[1]
