Couple house rules needed but for 2 huge LOTR nerds this game really hits the spot. The brown questions are stupid.

By
Not my strongest knowledge base for trivia, but still fun to play. The husband excels at it.

Great game if you know the movies. The pieces are cool too.

Jumps back and forth between movie and book facts. Very inconsistent

Great if you (or your partner) are LOTR movie obsessives. Otherwise steer clear!

If you're a LOTR super geek this game delivers. Newbies on the other hand, may not find much common ground. I keep the trivia cards on my desk and use them for a mental break whenever I need to stop looking at the computer screen.

Trivial pursuit - all the flaws, different questions. Now with a Ringwraith that steals the "ringbearer's" pie pieces. The ringbearer is the last person to earn a pie piece.

A nice trivia game for LotR. We purchased this over the other LotR trivia game because the other seemed to have a ton of very hard questions straight from the books. Although I'd rather answer questions about the books, questions that are too difficult make a trivia game no fun to play. Use of the One Ring and the black rider make for a shorter and more flavorful game!

Great game if you are a LOTR nerd (like me); I can imagine it sucks if you have only seen the movies once and never read the books.

Had this in the garage for years. We recently cleaned it out and found 10 or so old board games. Donating all of them but kept this and played a game over dinner. Had fun and decided to keep it. Made the wife and I want to watch the movies again.

By
Not worth playing.

Personally hate playing trivia games in general - hence the low score. Far too much like taking a test. Themed TP is no improvement. Have played a partial game of this so giving it a rating. Only up side is I do enjoy reading the factoids presented on the cards. Actually if they wrote this stuff on TP that would be far more interesting, useful, and would have the same enjoyment factor.

Questions are either too easy or impossibly hard, leading to runs of 10+ questions answered correctly. Only one box of questions, which is limiting as well, though I doubt I'll be playing this one often. Very disappointing. The pewter pieces are nice, but thast about it.

I love this game. Except for the questions about Peter Jackson's coffee boy or the guy who did the hair for for Orlando Bloom being a Dwarf in the opening scene or whatever it was. Those questions are mind-boggling.

Take Trivial Pursuit, and give it questions only a nerd who's watched the extended versions and all the DVD extras over a hundred times could answer, and you got the crap my poor mum bought for me thinking I'd like a game about LotR.

A gift for christmas. Nice bits, theme is weak. Plays just like all the other TP games.

By
Just read through the cards. What can I say, I'm an LOTR geek!!

This is a great trivial pursuit game. A little easy at times. The only drawback is the outcome is mostly centered around the "brown" wedge. These questions have to do with the making of the movie and are either near impossible or very rarely incredibly easy. I don't know who did makeup for Elf #34!!

Who cares who the producer was in TTT? yes I watched the films and thoroughly enjoyed them but didn't sit through the dredits to learn the cameraman's name. Should have been just on the books and included Hobbit and for hard questions - the Silmarilion!

Decent version of Trivial Pursuit with a nice themed variant. Good for those who had a casual interest in the films. Ok for those who didn't study every detail of every frame of the films. Ringwraith variant is a good twist on what I feel is kind of a tired game. We usually give up about mid-way when playing regular TP, but LOTR TP goes right to the end every time.

Requires that one view all of the extra material in the DVD's for the movies.

This version of Trivial Pursuit is more interesting than most, though you must be a fan of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The pawns are nice pewter figurines and the wedges snap into their bases. A Ringwraith can cause you to lose wedges. Unfortunately the question deck is one small box, no where near enough questions to keep this game interesting over time.

Actually better than the original Trivial Pursuit as the questions were movie orientated and because of the funky gold ring. Still a bit of guesswork, but not to bad.

Uneven questions and dice rolls, just like it's grandfather. Best players normally win. One ring and ringwraith are nice added feature to lengthen the game.

Being a fan of LOTR, this one was one of the few versions of Trivial Pursuit I actually purchased rather than received as a gift. My wife, however, being a bigger LOTR fan, completely crushes me at this. :) Would like to try the other LOTR trivia game.

The theme raises it one step above regular Trivial Pursuit.

I don't think I've ever lost a game of this. However, this is a game where the fun factor will inevitably wane with each year that passes since the movies were in theaters.

5 out of 10

Well it's Trivial Pursuit and I get bored of rolling the die. It's about Lord of the Rings but it's the movies rather than the books. And the answers tend to be either bleeding obvious or rather obscure.

Not really much of a game, more of a test of obscure LOTR knowledge. I don't think anyone really enjoys playing trivial pursuit. It always turns into a pissing contest.

Its trivial pursuit.

Meh. Have no urge to play this.

Trivial Pursuit... The Game... Not The cards are OK, but are a bit focused on the MOVIES and thus not a big win for me.

This is is missing the ring that comes with the game, but is otherwise complete and unplayed.

By
Meh. I like LotR, just not enough to know enough to play and possible do well.

The "extra" mechanics...are...well...evil?

[1 play] This was not bad. I was about as mediocre at it as I expected, but we had a pleasant time and I even managed to win the game. The Trivial Pursuit game mechanics, of course, are what they are. A minority of the questions here fell into the annoying "this detail does not matter in any way and no one in their right mind would notice, remember, or care about it, but we need more cards to put in the box" category, but not too many. The good news for me was that stuff about the films was largely confined to a single category. If you are a fan of the books, but your knowledge of the films is superficial to none, you could still prosper reasonably at this game. I handled the winning film question with information that I had picked up from previous questions. There is an expert variant involving a Nazgul figure riding around the board and the One Ring changing hands, but we did not try it. We read the rules, though, and it looked like it might be fun in some ways but have a tendency to prolong the game. So probably not recommended unless your LotR knowledge is very strong.

If you like triv and your are a Rings fan then this is for you. Questions range from simple to very difficult.

Not sure how I feel about having 5/6 of the questions be stupidly easy, and the last 1/6 stupidly hard. Nice movie nostalgia trip ...

By
Thrift store find. My goal is to watch the movies with my 3 grandsons and then play this game.

4 out of 10

Some questions rely on the extended editions of the movies (which weren't even released when the game came out). Others are focused on silly details, or details that don't even seem correct.

This game is not that flawed as normal TP, but still, its TP.

I'm an avid LOTR fan, so this was an obvious choice for my wife to purchase as a gift. However, the limited cast and crew make for some easy guesses to many questions, and having read the trilogy multiple times through (unlike most other people I play with) gives me an unfair advantage. As such, this never gets suggested any more, either by me or anyone else.

I am disappointed with this one. There are too many questions that are not LotR knowledge. About half are "how may times did you watch the films" knowledge. I would prefer a LotR trivia game that questions your knowledge of Middle Earth and its inhabitants. The goofs and extras are fun bits, but it makes the game even more difficult to find interested parties who now have to both be Tolkien fans and individuals who have seen the film's bonus features and content.

Don't care for trivia games about famous people/actors.

5 out of 10

Oh, Trivial Pursuit. You and your ilk very rarely do anything for me. And a game that tests my knowledge of bonus features on the DVD as one of the categories is just silly. Oddly enough though, I know enough people who share my love of these movies that we can actually have a competitive game. Nice components too. But trivia games are very silly.

Okay for what it is. Wish it was based on the books instead of the movies. [Sold]

I don't think there are words to describe just how ridiculously arbitrary some of the questions were in this game.

Too easy for real fans; too hard to casual ones.

Boring and hard. Questions are too obscure.

I am not a Trivial Pursuit person, so I wouldn't rate any such game highly. However most become good conversation forums, if participants enjoy the subject. Most players of this game would prefer trivia based on the book, not the movies. The specific production related questions tend to pull you out of the fantasy subject (and no one knows the answer)

While I like trivia games and I like LOTR, this game just wasn't excellent. The question difficulty was just too inconsistent.

It's only movie trivia, not book trivia. But it's a good game despite the many errors I seem to keep finding and the fact that the questions have nothing to do with the categories.

Trivial Pursiut sucks, but apparently having a geeky theme makes it 2.5 rating points better to me. EDIT: During the Great Ratings Revision of June 2016, it was determined that the "geeky theme" is only worth 2.0 rating points.

Hey - it's Trivial Pursuit, however - how many answers are Gollem for God's sake anyway????

Just picked it up at a Goodwill store for $4. Still in original shrink wrap too.

No one had spent years growing nostalgic and studied the LotR MOVIES by the time this game came out. Books? Yes! Movies? NO!

Great game here. Its fun knowing everything in a Trivial Pursuit game. If your a Middle Earth fan you must have this game. Its much more based on the movies than the books. So beware. Hint: If you watch the appendix's that come with the extended versions of the film than you will be able to answer some of these questions.
