Description of The Crack of Doom

Beam's The Tolkien Trilogy closes on a positive note with this solid adventure that is both longer and more complex than its predecessors. The game follows the adventures of Frodo and his band of Hobbit through to the end of Tolkien's novels, climaxing at the memorable Ring forging scene. A great game in all respects, except for the fact that unlike earlier games you are restricted to playing one character (Sam the Hobbit) this time around.

you need to take it and hold it in the room with the trapdoor. however, the way it is done in the books is that you sing in the room with the trap door and then hide, and then when the orc leaves, climb up.
