Turbine Inc. recently sent out a press release announcing the release of a new mini-game for their Mines of Moria website. It might not be for the upcoming expansion to The Lord of the Rings Online, but we’ve tried it, and it’s fun nevertheless.
The game, called Swig and Toss is an axe-throwing competition that adds a bit of drinking and wagering into the mix to make things more interesting. The game last ten rounds, and you basically try to get as high a score as possible by wagering your gold coins. You can drink some ale, which will allow you to wager more money (because you’re drunk and probably not thinking straight) and at the same time impair your ability to aim properly.
The game’s quite tough when you’ve had a bit to drink, but if you can time everything just right, you should be able to hit the bullseye regardless of how much you drink. You can check out the new minigame by visiting the website below. In the meantime, enjoy these pictures we have of the minigame in question!
