The Battle of Five Armies Collector's Edition
The Battle of Five Armies is a stand-alone board game for two players, which recreates the fierce struggle witnessed by Bilbo Baggins at the end of his quest for the Lonely Mountain, in “The Hobbit”, the world-renowned masterpiece by J.R.R. Tolkien. Developed by the same designer team of the awarded War of the Ring board game (Francesco Nepitello, Marco Maggi and Roberto Di Meglio), The Battle of Five Armies is based on the mechanics first used in that game, merging action dice and event cards. The system is further enhanced by the addition of the “Fate Track” mechanic, handling the arrival of the allies and the triggering of special events. All the key characters in the battle – Bilbo, Gandalf, Thorin, Dain, the Elven King, Bard, Beorn, Bolg – are featured with powerful special abilities and unique sculptures.
This Collector's Edition will include a high-quality version of all the components featured in the regular, and now out-of-print, version of the game, complemented by 126 hand-painted figures, in a special deluxe packaging, and with a limited edition certificate of authenticity. It will also include "The Fate of Erebor", a previously unreleased mini-expansion including rules and components to reflect the outcome of the game in your games of War of the Ring Second Edition.
The Battle of Five Armies Collector's Edition will have a single print run, with a single print run of 1500.
