Don't Mess with Cthulhu

Bang! and Bang! The Dice Game



Sheriff of Nottingham

We're not sure if that last one is hidden roles or not, but Dave is special, so we didn't tell him to take his sweet voice and go home.

The Lord of the Rings - Journeys in Middle-earth is an app-driven exploration game in the world of Middle-earth by Fantasy Flight.

This is a spiritual successor to the app-driving plugged into their Imperial Assault and Decent properties, but this game was designed that was from the ground up.

If you love Middle-earth, you will enjoy this game. If you don't mind a phone giving you all of the game's details, this will work.

Ryan is unconvinced.
