Just finished playing through the first 2 scenarios with 3 friends. While I finished setting everything up I sent them to go watch the tutorial videos on the FFG website.
Easiest game I have ever taught
We found the game enjoyable, and unlike the solo experience quite winnable for the players.
The ability (especially of the deck I was using) to manipulate the game to our advantage was very telling.
Although it often looked dark (like 2 Hill Trolls ambushing the boat with a bunch of orcs) we always pulled through
I built the following decks 2 sphere decks, major listed first.
Spirit & Lore (Eowyn, Eleanor, Beravor)
Lore & Tactics (Glorfinel, Denethor, Gimli)
Tactics & Leadership (Legolas, Thalin, Gloin)
Leadership & Spirit (Aragorn, Theodred, Dunhere)
Great fun, can't wait to try the third scenario
