WizKids is preparing to release The Lord of the Rings: Nazgul, a cooperative board game in which players take on the role of Sauron’s most powerful minions the Nazgul.  Their task is to prevent those miserable Hobbits from disposing of the One Ring and destroy the resistance of men or any other group that would resist the will of the Dark Lord.  The Lord of the Rings: Nazgul game, which includes cool pre-painted miniatures, was designed by Charlie Tyson and Bryan Kinsella for 2-5 players (14 and up).  It takes about 120 minutes to play.
Players work together, but at the same time they try to prove their own worth to Sauron. Even the Witch-king can be killed and Sauron might need a new leader for the Nazgul.  Players are faced with three campaigns that they must win before the Ringbearer carries the One Ring to Mount Doom.  If the campaigns go astray, all players lose. Along the way players earn Victory Points (VPs), and if the group succeeds in its duty, the player with the most VPs wins.
WizKids’ Justin Ziran described The Lord of the Rings: Nazgul in some detail in his interview with ICv2 (see “Interview With WizKids’ Justin Ziran”): “Lord of the Rings will also get a board game later this year.  In a fun, new twist for the property, players get to play as the Nazgul working with and against other Nazgul trying to capture the One Ring before it reaches Mount Doom.  The game will feature pre-painted miniatures and game play will be driven by story elements the Lord of the Rings fans have come expect.”
