such a small thing

Day 335 of 365 in the “Marathon of the Dope” . . .

.....................................................................................................

As you can guess from the image provided below - today is ‘War of the Ring’ day.



Dawn rises cold on the battlefield of Middle Earth, and the free peoples wait, mostly unaware, as the hordes of Sauron amass for the onslaught . . .

. . . or something.

This game by Fantasy Flight Games is pretty good at wiling away a few hours (like up to eight, depending on how long you deliberate between actions) and keeps the flavour of Tolkien’s world well.

The gist of the game for the free peoples is to secret the ring into Mordor where it needs to be destroyed, while Sauron’s target is to crush the free people’s resistance and ultimately capture their strongholds to win - either that or corrupt the ring bearer so much he goes nuts and hands over the goods to its maker, Sauron.

So, without further delay, I’ve got many jobs to complete this morning, including my writing, before the war begins this afternoon.

Until tomorrow . . .
