HILLSIDE, NJ – September 17, 2012 – NECA/WizKids Games, the leader in collectible gaming, under license with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, is excited to announce the upcoming release of their next game — The Lord of the Rings Dice Building Game, offering a unique twist on the original Quarriors dice building game engine invented by renowned game designers Mike Elliott and Eric Lang.
Players must work together to assemble an army of dice representing brave Men, battle-ready Dwarves, wise Elves and stout-hearted Hobbits and muster their troops against the forces of Sauron. But beware — some may be tempted by the power of The One Ring and become corrupted by evil!
“Fans of Quarriors will readily recognize the dice building mechanic…but The Lord of the Rings Dice Building Game explores a few key elements that make it an entirely new experience out of the box,” said Mike Elliott.
Eric Lang described the final design as “very exciting… To be able to use the dice building engine and weave in the rich tapestry of characters, locations, weapons and more that make up the world of Middle-earth was a great challenge. Jeph Stahl and Brett Myers, who worked on the set, did a great job.”

The Lord of the Rings Dice Building Game will be available for purchase in January of 2013.
