War of the Ring Second Edition is widely recognized as the best strategy board game based upon the works of J.R.R. Tolkien and the ultimate gaming experience set in Middle-earth. The War of the Ring Anniversary Edition, produced in a limited number of copies, included a larger game board, and players have been asking for a similar board to be offered as a regular product.
Ares Games went a step further, and it is now producing the official War of the Ring Deluxe Game Mat a giant neoprene playing mat (laser cut, 128 x 88 cm size) with an enlarged playing area, for easier gameplay, printed on high-quality, foldable material. This beautiful mat features the amazing John Howe’s depiction of Middle-earth created exclusively for War of the Ring.
The game mat provides a gaming surface similar in size to the Anniversary Release game board 50% larger than the normal board included in 2nd Edition. With this deluxe game accessory, players will have a durable game board with even more room to maneuver the 205 miniatures used in the game.
