Welcome to Mordor! The dark lord Sauron is pleased that you have... chosen... to champion the true destiny of Middle-earth. Some prefer the hopeless cause of men and their miserable allies. Theirs is a fool's choice! You show no affinity for such delusions. You seek glory for Sauron, and your rewards shall be great!

You are one of Sauron's most powerful minions: a Nazgul! You must work together with the other Nazgul to stop the cursed hobbits and destroy the resistance of men. But at the same time, you must strive to prove your own worth to the dark lord. After all, there are rumors that even the Witch-king can be killed, and Sauron may soon need a new leader for the Nazgul.

In The Lord of the Rings: Nazgul, you are faced with three Campaigns that you must conquer before the Ringbearer carries the One Ring to Mount Doom. If you cannot complete them in time, all players lose! Along the way, you will earn Victory Points (VPs), and if the group succeeds in its duty, the player with the most VPs wins.

“Did you ever want to be the Nazgul?”

Idea is simple – you are nazgul (team of nazguls) playing competitive or cooperative version of the game. The goal is similar – outsmart your opponents – which would be also sometimes outsmarting your friends (in this case other nazguls).
What is interesting here – is battle system. You use cubes – like in euro games – that represent your armies. Depending on your level of advance – you pick so many cubes and put it to the cup – together with the “forces” of defender. Mix it and pull it out (in a number given also by your level of advance).
Quality of the components is OK – however I would like that the board is bit thicker. Cards are OK. Minis are hero-clix from Wizkins and they are good quality.
I would prefer to see main character – the main ugly, nasty and the worse nazgul – W.King – as a figure – not as a token. But it’s easy to upgrade.
Apart from that – gameplay is rather smooth. Deck of cards are not huge, so you need to pay attention and plan a bit upfront. Rules are clear and easy to learn.
