 By Robert  Price. The Fellowship of the Ring. White may win by carrying a 'ring' to the other side of the board. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Another use for this ring could be to create some good three-player games. Take any game for four players, have one player move two opposite armies as White(Gondor and the North), and the other two players one army each as Black (Isengard and Mordor). This would balance the odds even better, as the player whose pieces are hampered by carrying the Ring would have twice the material, though at the price of a more awkward route to destroy the Ring. All this would also match the original story really well.
