Those tricky Hobbits are back again with a new board game. Can you evade the Eye of Sauron and the other players long enough to take The One Ring to the fires of Mount Doom?

Quest to Mount Doom lets players recreate the epic journey that the Fellowship took as they journeyed to Mount Doom – but with a competitive twist! Each player is hunting for the One Ring that is hidden somewhere in Middle-earth. The aim is simple: find the Ring and take it to Mount Doom to see it destroyed. However, you don’t want other players to know you have it, they will only try and take it from you – so keep it secret, keep it safe!
While we don’t have a release date confirmed yet, we do have a rough idea of what the game entails. We can see that five members of the fellowship will be included from the back of the box. Legolas, Aragon, Gimli, Gandalf, and Frodo are all getting player cards and models. Each character will have a unique ability and there looks to be an array of items and event cards at your disposal.
The box art also says that it’s a faster game at 30-45 minutes for 2-5 players ages 8 and up. That sounds like it could be fun for the whole family, although I’m wondering (based on the limited gameplay description) if players are going to get into a Munchkin situation where it ends up being everyone vs the person with the ring. But hey, for a quick playing quest to destroy the Ring, I’d give it a go!
Will you be able to outwit your friends and win the race to destroy the One Ring?
