Grand Strategy Board Game- War of the Ring by Ares Games
« on: October 20, 2021, 03:42:45 PM »
No game brings ME to life in a grand strategy way as WOTR by ares games.

I have had allot of fun playing this lore accurate game and i would recommend it to anyone who loves board games or tolkiens world. It also has a large MP community that plays Tabeltop simulator on steam. Someone even made a mod so the pieces look like the movies.

Hm.  So you load the WotR game board onto TTS and then play it online or something? I had thought TTS was meant for RPG games (like D&D) and hadn't thought about using it for games that have their own boards.
The royal feast was done; the King
Sought some new sport to banish care,
And to his jester cried: "Sir Fool,
Kneel now, and make for us a prayer!"

The jester doffed his cap and bells,
And stood the mocking court before;
They could not see the bitter smile
Behind the painted grin he wore.

He bowed his head, and bent his knee
Upon the Monarch's silken stool;
His pleading voice arose: "O Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!"

Others have already created the game on TT simulator so all you need is TTS on steam and the game comes "free." Its a pretty amazing feature and makes playing board game long distance great fun.
