In a four-player game, the player responsibilities are broken down as follows:

Free Peoples:

— Player 1: Gondor (also controls the Elves)

— Player 2: Rohan (also controls the North and Dwarves)


— Player 1: The Witch-king (the Sauron Nation)

— Player 2: Saruman and Sauron Allies (Isengard and Southron & Easterling Nations)

All the rules in the standard game apply, with the following exceptions.

At the beginning of the game, the Gondor player and the Witch-king player take the “Leading Player” tokens.

At the beginning of each turn (excluding Turn 1), the Leading Player in a team passes the “Leading Player” token to his teammate.
