Expansion pack[edit]

There was actually a LOTR Risk "Extension Pack" featuring Gondor, Mordor and Haradwaith regions. It was available in Borders bookshop in the UK, amongst other places. It was withdrawn from sale shortly after release, presumably due to poor sales. --demondrink 14:18, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

Apparently an expansion pack is available on request, while stocks last, for US$18 to US residents from here.

This was noted, and this is a seperate article The Shroud 03:32, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

There is LOTR Risk and LOTR Risk Trilogy edition. My understanding is that the expansion pack adds the additional content from the trilogy edition.

Although there is no already existing artcle for the other LOTR Risk editions. I figure it would probably be best to make this article cover all three and, if needed, rename it slightly. Any other thoughts on the matter? b_cubed 22:22, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Risk LOTRspecialedition.JPG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Risk LOTRspecialedition.JPG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Criticism for having a limited print run?[edit]

The article says: "The fact that it is now out of print has also brought criticism from many people." The vast majority of board games have only a limited print run and then they are no longer printed. Only games that show lasting popularity are given multiple print runs (and really, this game was a movie tie-in). I can understand that people can be frustrated that an old and out of print game can be hard to find, but I don't think this is really a valid criticism of the game or the publisher.
