The Hunt for the Ring is an Eamon game (number 127 in the Eamon Adventurer's Guild's list). This game completely rewrites Tolkien's story. You (the hero) must set out on a quest to find the One Ring. This is part five of The Lord of the Rings series.

Personal evaluation: Sam Ruby butchers Tolkien again. Enough said.

"Githoneil a Elbereth!" indeed.
