[[TitleConfusion Despite the title,]] the game has nothing to do with ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''. Instead, the name comes from the table's setting, an alien LostWorld filled with [[PantheraAwesome feral beasts,]] [[StockDinosaurs bloodthirsty dinosaurs,]] [[KillerGorilla giant apes,]] [[{{Kaiju}} strange monsters,]] and the brave futuristic explorers trying to tame it all. But like Middle Earth itself, mastering this pinball won't be easy, as its double playfields and offset flippers require unconventional pinball skills.
