Basic game play works.
What does not
Buildings don't display properly. They are all black with some white
parts (I think the white parts are those that usually correspond to the
color of your army, but I'm not sure).
The game run very slow, making it unplayable. This may be due to my 3D chipset (Intel 945GM), can't check on other hardware right now.
What was not tested
Intensive game play.

Do not start the installer using Un*x paths (e.g. wine /media/cdrom0/Setup.exe). These won't work because of bug 7663.
Do not use Setup.exe, since it may produce segfault due to bug 7785. Neither use Autoplay.exe, since it just relies on Setup.exe.
For now, the only right way to start the installer is:
wine 'd:\_dxinst.exe' ' -wd d:'
Again, when starting the game make sure the path is in win32 form. Additionally, if you have a multi-core CPU, use schedtool to work
around thread unsafety issues. The complete command would be:
schedtool -a 0x1 -e wine 'c:\Program Files\Liquid Entertainment\War of the Ring(tm)\Rings.exe'
