Captures the feel of the book and one of the few games everyone works together.

Gorgeous game, mechanism is not like anyhting else out there. It is somewhat abstract but it's well worth the money I paid for it.

My Favorite game right now. Novel, new, great to look at and feels like the story. Can play under two hours. One of the all time best.

A technically stunning game that could never be accused of over-simplicity. There are simply so many choices available to the Fellowship that skill has a major impact on the chances of success.

Have only played a coupla times with a gamer buddy, but we love it. We both get tense every game, even the time we kicked butt. LOVE calling Gandalf for help, especially when his magic kicks Shelob's spidery butt. Don't like the ring, and had hoped for the same ring in the LotR Risk, but that's a MINOR complaint, negligible actually considering I can just use the better ring.

While fully sympathising with those who don't like the cooperative aspect of this game, this is nontheless the most intruiging and, IMHO, important game since Settlers of Catan. For the conneseur, this is as far as gaming has gone into the realm of art. Has actually shocked my by having excellent replay value, an area where I expected it to fall short.

I love this game, because players team up against a common evil, but I have never actually won this game. Maybe I need more players.

If anything deserves a 10 in my book, it's this game. Maybe not absolutely perfect, but so audacious and meticulously built that it's awe-inspiring.

Great game for non-gamers. High replayability rate, even though after 50+ sessions the basic games needs spicing up with the expansions.

A game that captures the theme of Tolkien's work perfectly, not so much via the mechanics, but through the feel of the gameplay. You don't feel like you're marching to Mordor, but the tension and suspense, the feeling that the quest is hanging by the breadth of a hair, are very real, and very well done. May have a "best strategy" if you play too much, but for a few plays a year, this isn't really a factor. Some text on special cards, but otherwise, very conducive to play by younger players. Highly recommended!

Nothing could be better. This game is totally sadistic. Throws your stress level up and keeps it there with a totally unique system.

Brilliant cooperative game, unlike anything I've ever seen. As for replay value: we succeeded on our first try (easy setting) and I can't wait to play again. I simply love the way this game sticks to theme, it feels like reading (and living!) the books all over again.

Replay value drops to near zero after you master it, but oh what fun the mastering can be.

Great game, nice to have a co-op version. Captures the events of the books well and makes for an interesting challange.

I know the complaints ... "it's group solitaire", "the game plays you instead of the other way around", etc. But the games extraordinary success is in capturing the very feeling of being a member of a desperate fellowship, wanting success for the group yet still hopefully survival for the self. For someone who hadn't read the books, Reiner sure nailed this theme.

This game genuinely makes me feel I am amongst the hobbits struggling to get the ring to Mordor. It can be devastatingly difficult to defeat the game, but the cooperative nature of the game makes for great gameplay every time. One major rap on this game is that it is possible for one player to tell everyone else what to do thus eliminating any real cooperative feel. However, since I only have played with good friends, this has never been an issue with us.

When the movies came out I really got into the whole LOTR crave. My father-in-law let me borrow his books to read and also introduced me to this game. We played it a couple of times together and I really enjoyed it. I appreciate the fact that it follows most of the story line while incorporating many of the events into the play of the game. I got my own copy as a gift from some of my students. Even though my father-in-law and I own 2 copies we don't get as much play time on it as we'd like since there's only a couple other hard core LOTR fans in the family.
