Brutal. Battlefields added a viciously evil new element to LotR that could often be quite merciless, but always fun. This one got more play than the Sauron expansion, and ended up being used almost as often as Friends and Foes.

This is essentially an abstract side-game bolted on to the base game. It's as if Knizia took a wholly separate game like Kingdoms and decided to attach it to Lord of the Rings as an expansion. It plays well and is interesting, but from a production standpoint it feels half finished. The battlefield boards are poorly illustrated and don't have any kind of tie-in to the story - they are just abstract flowcharts. No events, no geographic tie ins, nothing to bind them to the story at all. You are literally solving a logic puzzle with a couple of LOTR illustrated pieces on it. That said, the gameplay is solid and engaging. Will I buy it? No, probably not. Will I play it? Sure, but I think the game is really at its peak with F&F only. Sauron and Battlefields are both kind of misses for me. Also, this does not integrate well with the Sauron or Friends & Foes expansions. Sauron doesn't integrate well because Sauron has no control over the battlefields stuff at all. Friends & Foes does not integrate well because Battlefields is just a more complicated version of Friends & Foes. But without F&F you miss out on Bree and Isengard. Base Game F&F is still the best experience in my opinion.

I've read the reviews, sounds like a good addition. I hope to get it at some point.

Love the new decisions here. Making the "main track sprint" a lot more painful is a stroke of genius.
