This board game is "Conquest of the Ring", "A Middle Earth Game for the entire family" by Hobbit Toys and Games, Inc., 1311 Healy Street, Kalamazoo, Michigan. I have not been able to find any reference to this board game or the manufacturer, although it says "Game no. 35" on the lid, implying they made at least 35 board games. [IMAGE]

This is, obviously, a game based upon the classic series of Middle Earth books written by J. R. R. Tolkien. It comes with the board, four pawns the Ring and the plastic bag for holding the playing pieces.

The object and rules of play are,basically as follows: The object is: "Conquest of the Ring is a fast action pursuit game in which each of two to four players compete for the ONE Ring of Power." Located in the center of the playing board, the Ring waits to be claimed by the first player who traces his way through the maze from the point of beginning in his Hobbit Shire. Once claimed, the Ring is placed over the successful player's pawn and the chase is on! To win the game, a player must successfully elude the pursuit of his opponents and carry the Ring back to the starting space of his Hobbit Shire."
