WizKids has acquired a license to produce a Lord of the Rings 'Constructible Strategy Game' (CSG), which will launch in October.  The Constructible Strategy Game was first announced for Pirates of the Spanish Main, shipping in July (see 'WizKids Plans Pirate Game').


WizKids' Lord of the Rings Epic Battle Game will be sold in $4.99 packs, each of which will contain four styrene cards, a rules booklet, and three dice.  The four styrene cards will be two or three combat units (each featuring troop pieces and their bases); and either one large constructed creature or war machine (using 1-2 cards), or two smaller hero pieces with bases on one card.
