Now this is what the Treasure Trove is all about. According to Jeff, these are pictures from the early 1980's edition of Ring Game. Notice how the judging and assembly is being done in the horse loading area (in the corner of one photo, you can even see that the Rivendell flag was tied to the horse sign post!). Notice how the roads are all still gravel! Notice how the huge tree on Barad-dûr is barely a sapling! Notice how there's not a single person I recognize! Huge kudos to Jeff for providing us with this glimpse into Ring Game's earliest days! As usual, click on the thumbnails below to open full-size pictures in a new window.
