Escape From Colditz is a 1-vs-many semi-cooperative game where one player is the Security Officer of the German forces, and the others are Escape Officers for various nationalities or prisoners of war (POWs). Escape Officers try to acquire the equipment they need for a successful escape (rope, wire cutters, etc.), while the Security Officer tries to hinder them by putting them in solitary confinement and consficating their equipment.
A new version of Risk, with the following differences:
The map is of Middle Earth, and the tokens represent armies of that fictional world.
You play either good or evil.
Leaders, missions and sites of power have been added.
The One Ring acts as a timing mechanism, when it leaves the board, the game ends.
