This expansion for the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game™ lets you play out campaigns across three distinct theatres of war – the Battle for Dale, Defence of Mirkwood, and Assault on Lothlorien. These can be played individually, or combined into a grand Defence of the North campaign. The hefty background section gives you plenty of insight into the history of the northern kingdoms, including events that occurred during the War of the Ring, when so much attention was focused elsewhere. You’ll find loads of scenarios to play, fresh ways to build your armies, and meet new heroes and villains. On top of all that, this supplement includes a showcase of miniatures, and an appendix featuring additional content exploring the historical battles of the northern lands.
