Bought this new when it first came out. I have played it once and liked it. You need to know the story to play the game though. There is some trivia involved.

Okay, game snobs. Once again, you've trashed a perfectly good family game because it's not some new, amazing brain crunch game. This is a FAMILY game. Rate it as such. mumbling under my breath (we need a new website… BGG is just a bunch of spreadsheet geeks with no sense of simple, game fun)

My family loved it. I played with my son (5), daughter (11) and wife (?). Great time. Mildly thematic, but enough to put you in the theme. Luck, for sure. I lost miserably and happily. I like some of the variants posted. It's $12 and amazing for that price. Great pieces, decent card, nice artwork… Seriously, get it if you have a family that like LOTR.

Rules are simple and complete. Game played in about 55 minutes (don't forget the 5 year old and a spacey 11 year old girl). We'll smooth that down in the coming months.

Rated as a kid's game. As an adult game it would recieve less than half this rating.

Brilliant children's game, my 6-year old loves it. Especially as we're reading the book at the same time. Lots of atmosphere, some choices and some excitement. It is a children's game, though, don't pull this out with your (grown up) friends.

Another simple game that's still fun to play. I like to introduce this game to people who are... not-so-in-touch with their "nerd" side. It's simple, fast, and reasonably fun.

Rated as a children's game - they enjoy it and understand it and are excited by the components. Could also be enjoyed by brainburned and inebriated adults as an end of session game. A lot of luck and just a pinch of strategy.

While this is not a filler (it takes at least 90 minutes to play), it's still a good light game, and when you have enough of strategic thinking and monster games... this is it! However, please remember that this is still a game for very young gamers.

This is a GREAT game to play with kids, and even is a decent gateway game for Tolkein fans. Rated as such. Not a ton there for serious gamers.
