Playtester: very beautiful game... shorter than War of the Ring, but not less nice. Nice job

I am on the border for this.... about the language version.
English is more common for me as I try to read and view the saga in English, but German would be easier for my contrahent....
Decisions, decisions...

1st play impressions: I played Sauron's forces and won. The die-roll based action selection mechanism is very enjoyable. Even though this means your actions are dictated by random events, it seems to balance out overall & felt like I was commanding an army that wasn't fully under my control. The simple dice-based combat, however, was infuriating and annoying as always: I really prefer a more deterministic combat. That said, the damage mechanism was unique, easy and overall GREAT! If I were to get a LoTR game, I would get War of the Ring over this one.

Set in Middle-Earth (yet again) this game offers a thematic recreation of the Battle of the Five Armies which plays out at the end of the Hobbit and leading in the narrative arc of the Lord of the Rings. Now, if you, like me, don't care too much about the theme -- that's OK. Mechanically, we have an asymmetrical and tactical war game that is supplemented by enough cards to make it swingy without being broken. The asymmetry, in short takes the shape of Sauron's armies having the privilege of starting with more armies and having more up their sleeves. The fellowship, however, has a few more tricks (rather than brute force) and their slow but steady trickle of reinforcements really garners speed later in the match -- it's a tense, tactical battle against the clock for both sides. Granted its long, but even if the theme isn't compelling, the gameplay certainly is.

This game is reminiscent of a lightly ameritrashier Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation on an incredibly much larger scale (and with a lot more plastic in hand!). While I've been told that this slightly pales in comparison to its older brother War of the Ring, I found this to be quite the rich experience (with its multiple end-game conditions to really keep players on their toes).

Not for the faint of heart or those who are afraid of probability distributions not fairing in their favour (i.e., there is a lot of dice chucking).

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.

Once men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set them free. But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.
