Bought for $21.99 at Tramp's Comics and Games in Regina. A 2-scenario expansion on 2-sided double-sized scenario-specific maps. It came with a Troll creature. I tried it out myself, it was good. It's too bad that Days of Wonder didn't publish more such expansions for BattleLore. They created at least one such expansion for Memoir '44.

Map is very nice and the For Troll and Country Scenario seemed balanced.

Just played the Troll Bridge scenario after painting the Troll - just great fun! I really enjoyed having a pre-printed map without the setup hassle. Please make more of these.

Finally have this figure. Will need to make my own Lair and Card for him. Marks the end of Days of Wonder's involvement with BattleLore. I thought they did a superb job with supporting the game, but I'm also looking forward to what Fantasy Flight will do with it now.

The scenarios are fun, and we get a new creature!
I´m not too keen on the paper map thing, but not insanely outraged, like some people, either... Not an essential expansion, but for what it is, it works!

As I had preordered this, I received it for FREE, as a sort of goodbye present from DOW, as this was about the time they handed BL over to FFG.

Thank you!

My son purchased this to expand our BattleLore base game. The giant map with pre-printed terrain is handy, and the Troll miniature is a fun addition.

Fun, and great for quick setup. The troll is fun to play, though it can be killed quite easily if done well.

First game, and a blast. Can't wait to play the other scenario, with extra forces (The Dwarven Battallion and the Goblin Marauders).

Cool figure reminds me of the Big 'Uns from Blood Bowl. Plus I like the new format of pre-printed map scenarios. Two large map scenarios included with the big guy.

The Troll is my favorite creature so far, and these maps aren't bad at all. I think people had trouble with the price point to start, of course, I got this for a song so I think it's great.

The only reason I gave this a 5 is because it did not come with a Troll rule card or terrain hex like the other creatures DOW has produced. Otherwise, I really like the troll rules as printed on the epic maps that come with the troll figure.

Edit: I changed my rating from a 5 to a 7 because FFG put a file of the card online that I printed out on glossy photo paper. Now it looks almost exactly like the games other cards.

a big map and a single miniature (a very small one at that for a beast) with 2 pre printed battles, one of which isnt actually playable without owning 2 of teh special troops packs!

that said both battles are well formed and in my opinion present intresting tactical problems

if you can find it on sale get it

A huge and very nice quality map. Shame FFG won't be producing any of these, as it really seems a neat way of mingling the expansions while creating a product that can be successful with those are have that cross section of expansions.

There are also wonderful opportunities here to follow a very different path with the scenario construction, terrain and story. Shame DoW was never really given (or didn't take) the opportunity to let this new direction speak for itself.

There are a couple of things I was disappointed by: 1) The flag is glued to the troll. This is a pain in the neck. 2) That there were no cards for the Troll, Stone Bridge and no Stone Bridge piece.

Scenario is good. Love Epic.

Almost all of the complaints about For Troll and Country encompass production and cost. Examples include no troll or bridge cards, the paper is too thin, one scenario requires expansion figures, and the cost is too high. I have one complaint about the production: I would have preferred only one language on the map and the extra room used for pre-printed "cards" of applicable terrain and weapon types (hills, woods, drum, spear, etc.).
On the other hand, it seems that the people that have actually played the scenarios, like myself, enjoy the product. I appreciate the fact that one scenario uses figures from expansions; I am glad that the company supported those people that purchased the expansions. As far as the cost is concerned, I got it for less than $12. That price is far less than a 90 minute movie with snacks, and I have already gotten 6+ hours of enjoyment from FT&C.
I have one thing to ask critics - * play the scenarios and then rate it *.
Scenario summary: The "Troll Bridge" scenario has a poorly balanced set-up. The large number of goblin units on the pennant player's force gives the standard player a distinct advantage. The goblin flank is easily crushed by the rushing dwarves. If the goblins immediately retreat across the river, however, some balance can be restored. "For Troll and Country" is a fun scenario, but like all single scenarios, replay is limited.

Not an essential expansion, low component value at such price point.. But for what it is, it works: Troll is a powerful creature. Only buy this expansion if you are a big battlelore fan
