All the Uruks of Mordor have gathered to watch the fun, as 16 of the deadliest orcs in Mordor go under the Thunderdome in a fight to the death! The iron dome was forged in the fires of Sammath Naur and then hauled by siege beasts down the sides of Orodruin and onto the plain below. There it was erected by a 100 of Uruks under the dark skies of Mordor!

Brazen horns are blown. Drums roll across the arid plain. The raucous cries of countless orcs, echo throughout Mordor… the great Eye in the Dark Tower looks down upon the valley of terror in the the Land of Shadow. Suddenly Mount Doom erupts in fiery chaos… The signal has been sent!

Let the Games begin!

Here is Round One ~ Mordor of Orc Wars, followed shortly  by Round One ~ Mirkwood and then Round One ~ Moria, and lastly Round One ~ Isengard!  Don’t forget, that you can lay your staff upon each of the Orc Cards below to see a larger size and help you decide which Uruk should win the fight!

The time has come to vote!
















Keep your eyes open… Round One ~ Mirkwood is coming next!

    Jiz-rag for the win!

  • LOL!

  • CT

    Can we just put Gothmog in the final four now? This bracket is over…..LOL

  • Roberto Took

    I was hoping it was a typo when I saw it on the bracket but guess not.
    This should be interesting

  • Roberto Took

    does returning to poll cancel your vote?

  • Right now I’m definitely rooting for Guritz. There’s nothing quite like a suave, fashionable Orc.

  • CT

    No, once you’ve voted your choice is registered.

  • CT

    Guritz, affectionately known as Skully……I wonder why……

  • A little off color humor never hurts! 🙂

  • CT

    It looks like Jiz-Rag is kicking butt at the moment. I remember his opponent [Lob-Zagh] from the march from Minas Morgul scene in ROTK. The guy was huge and was the only orc who didn’t bother wearing a helm……he should be having Jiz-Rag for breakfast…….

  • Grievous1138

    Well, think about strategy. Jiz-rag’s name is enough to keel anyone over with laughter, giving Jiz-rag a chance to go for the kill.

  • CT

    I can’t disagree with you there. It’s not exactly a name that’s going to instill fear in his opponents……

  • Roberto Took

    We love the quirky ones sometimes!

  • Grievous1138

    All he needs is the moniker “The Nibbler” and he’s officially the least scary orc ever.

  • You guys crack me up! LOL!

  • CT

    I’m not even going to touch that one……..

  • CT

    Some really close races going on in this bracket. There could be some real upsets here…..

  • CT

    Yikes!………Major upset. Gothmog is history!!

  • Grievous1138

    Gothmog lost!? This is a rather unexpected turn of events. Guritz is my new favored Mordor champ.
