Players of The Lord of the Rings Online had the possibility to link this account to their LOTRO account, with abled them to get special in-game rewards after they completed a deed. It is not possible to play the minigames anymore, since Mines of Moria's official site has been taken ofline.
The game has both a singleplayer and a multiplayer, in with maximal 6 people can participate. The player has to conquer all regions of Moria in 15 turns. 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.
