Facebook users, get ready for an adventure! You can now experience the world of Tolkien via your Facebook account with the officially licensed Facebook app – ‘The One Ring.’ Microcosm Games has developed a great app which allows you to explore Middle-earth as one of the heroes of The Lord of the Rings, and join in the struggle against Sauron. The official description and screen can be found through the link below. We’d love to hear what you think of the app, so please join in the conversation in our forum. Check out the official app page on Facebook, as well as their official website to get started. [The One Ring Facebook App] [Official Homepage]
Fantasy Flight Games’ new boardgame, ‘Middle-earth Quest‘ is now shipping. The FFG web site has a PDF of the rulebook and a QuickTime trailer movie.

The time period is sometime before the main events of LotR, with Sauron extending his power from Mordor; one player portrays Sauron, with up to three opponents portraying heroes who try to hinder his plans. The heroes win or lose against Sauron as a group.
