The fierce struggle, witnessed by Bilbo Baggins at the end of his quest, is about to begin! The stalwart warriors of the Free Peoples - Elves, Dwarves, and Men - formed and uneasy alliance to defend the Lonely Mountain and the treasure of Smaug. Now, they are facing the endless horde of minions of the Necromancer. The Shadow Armies, led by Bolg, son of Azog, are going to sweep the ruins of Dale and the Front Gate with an unstoppable onslaught.

Will the Goblins come through the mountain soon enough to overwhelm the Free Peoples with a two-pronged attack? Can the arrival of Beorn, the skin-changer, turn the tide in favor of the Free Peoples? Will the coming of the Eagles stop the Goblins from crossing the mountain?

The battle of five armies is a two-players game that allows you to re-create the epic conclusion of the The Hobbit, the world - renowned masterpiece by J.R.R. Tolkien.

The Shadow player commands the armies of Bolg, son of Azog, the King of the Goblins of Mount Gundabad, while the Free Peoples player is in control of Men, Dwarves and Elves, led by Gandalf to fend off the goblin army.

Based on the acclaimed mechanics fist used in the War of the Ring boardgame, The Battle of Five Armies merges action dice and event cards, to make each game a unique experience. The system has been further enhanced by the addition of the "Fate Track" mechanic, handling the arrival of the allies and the triggering of special events. All the key characters in the battle - Bilbo, Gandalf, Thorin, Dain, the Elven King, Bard, Beorn, Bolg - are featured with powerful special abilities and unique sculptures.

The Battle of Five Armies includes 125 plastic figures and many more top quality components.
