War of the Ring - The Card Game, the new multi-player game inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, is now shipping to distributors and will start to hit the US stores on December 21st, as pre-orders in the USA have been fulfilled. Pre-orders in Europe and other countries are shipping this week, and following the game will be available in retail.

Game stores running War of the Ring launch events will have copies with the promo cards.

The best brick-and-mortar stores in US and Europe will run launch events for the game before the end of January 2023, and will be able to offer to their customers, together with the game, four exclusive promo cards (previously available only through the pre-order offer on Ares Games' online shop). Customers may check directly with their favorite retailer if they will run the launch event, or follow the hashtag #waroftheringcardgamelaunch on social media.

Designed by Ian Brody, creator of the Quartermaster General series, War of the Ring – The Card Game is inspired by our best-selling and award-winning War of the Ring Second Edition, but it's simpler, more portable and more accessible. The game is team-based and asymmetrical: each player controls one or more of the factions of the War of the Ring, either on the side of the Free Peoples or of the Shadow, using a unique deck, reproducing the strengths and weaknesses of the specific factions they play with.

The first printing of War of the Ring - The Card Game - English edition sold out on pre-order and the second printing is going to be available in January 2023. Pre-orders are open for this second print run on Ares Games webshop.
