From Tolkien Gateway
War of the Ring

War of the Ring is a board game based on The Lord of the Rings. It is a game in which you may play as either the Dark Player (Sauron), The Free People, or in a three player game with Saruman. It was released in 1977, and is now difficult to find inexpensively. It can be played in different versions, you can play the Character Game, in which the focus is primarily upon the characters described in the Lord of The Rings. This option is much simpler to understand and to play well. The other way in which you can play the game is in Campaign mode. This version allows you not only to control the characters described in The Lord of The Ring, but also the various armies and nations that were involved as well.
