At the GAMA Trade Show, Ares Games was previewing its new Lord of the Rings themed game The Hunt for the Ring. The game will release this summer.

Designed by Francesco Nepitello and Marco Maggi, co-designers of the highly-regarded War of the Ring, and Gabriele Mari (Letters from Whitechapel), The Hunt for the Ring is a stand-alone game that features hidden movement, deduction, and adventure. The game is set during the first few chapters of The Lord of the Rings.
