The King from under the Mountain jumped out of the cavern, followed by his team. They shed their cloaks and hoods, and they wore shining armor with a red battle flame in their eyes. In the falling dusk the chief of the dwarves seemed to burn like gold in fire.
Smaug the Golden is dead…
The treasure of the dragon rests in the dungeons of the Lonely Mountain. The Free Peoples Army is assembling in the Dale Valley, and countless Shadow forces are coming from the east. Goblins climb mountain slopes to harass enemies from above. Perhaps the Free Peoples will receive unexpected help - from the Eagles of the Misty Mountains and the shapeshifter Beorn - but will the relief arrive in time before all is lost?
In the Battle of the Five Armies one of the players will command the forces of Bolg, son of Azog - a mighty horde of orcs, goblins and lips, backed up by the great bats from Mirkwood. His adversary will take control of the Free Peoples - wood elven warriors, relentless dwarves and brave men of Lake City, united under one banner by the wisdom of the wizard Gandalf.
Many variables will affect the outcome of the battle. Will Gandalf's magic turn her fortunes? Will the courage of Thorin Oakenshield prove decisive and help him break through the ranks of Bolg's bodyguards? Will Bilbo Baggins use the magic Ring to save the skin on Raven's Hill?
The Battle of the Five Armies is a strategy game for two players based on the HOBBIT Grand Final by J.R.R. Tolkien, designed and produced by the creators of the award-winning War of the Ring board game.
