      Ask and you shall receive:

      "Don't bother your favorite game seller, the game won't be available
      until end of September. A full review will be in Speilbox magazine
      after that. Here is a first look at the game, limited to photos and
      a few explanations.

      There are five boards: main board (above right) and 4 adventure
      boards, which are played one after another. They are really two
      boards, each with an adventure on the front and the back.

      The players are Hobbits off to have adventures, but --fitting with
      the theme, however surprising for Knizia-- only the group can win,
      not a single player. The Lord of the Rings is a cooperation game.
      Only so can Sauron be defeated. There is a competitve variant, where
      competition is in the form of victory points.

      Other materials inclde various kinds of cards, Hobbit cards, Gandalf
      cards, Place cards, and event cards, life counters, shields, and of
      course the ring ... (Tolkein quote). More info soon at this site!"

      Sorry I don't remember my Tolkein well enough to correct the names of
      some of the characters or do the last quote any justice! Hope this
      helps.
