Looking for a really good Lord of the Rings board game? We have just the thing - A list of the best Lord of the Rings games.

What is Lord of the Rings anyway?

The Lord of the Rings is an epic fantasy novel by English author and scholar J. R. R. Tolkien. The story began as a sequel to Tolkien's 1937 fantasy novel The Hobbit, but eventually evolved into a much larger work. Written in stages between 1937 and 1949, The Lord of the Rings is one of the best-selling novels of all time, with 2022 now over 150 million copies sold.

What kind of Lord of the Rings board games are there?

In addition to simple adaptations of the look of a party game and slight rule changes to an existing game (e.g. Risk, Monopoly), there are also a great many card, dice and board games designed especially for the Lord of the Rings universe. And here there are real "treasures" - to speak in the sense of Gollum.

Board games inspired by other media (such as movies or TV series) and based on Lord of the Rings stories are also included in our list.

Looking for a board game from another universe?
