I talked my brother into playing this one with me for the first time. I spent a good chunk of time reading the rules and then around 45 min for the first setup. Finally finished told my brother to come downstairs and play. He told me he didn't want to play. Took about 10 min to pack the game up and hasn't hit the table since then. Someday I might conquer this beast.

and I played his copy of War of the Ring 1st ed. which he had never played. I had read descriptions of the game and have always been intrigued.

We don't have the rules down perfectly yet but it was good fun. Jon was the good guys and Frodo was very close to Mount Doom when he succumbed to corruption. I thought I was a goner before squeaking out a victory.

Besides getting the rules down better, we both need to explore the strategies available in this game. Much deeper than I had anticipated.

I liked it a lot and I will probably pick up a 2nd edition copy. But I must say, I really didn't like the minis. Many times, the Shadow armies were large and didn't fit into the areas and the tall Nazgul figures were constantly tipping over, scattering other figures. By game's end, I was really hating them. But I can make counters to replace them.

We do plan to play the game again next week.

and I played this again tonight. We switched sides and Jon won as the Shadow player. Frodo only got to outside Mordor before being consumed by corruption. By then, Gondor had been completely overrun and Lorien had fallen.

It seems like the Shadow player has an advantage. My copy of the 2nd edition will be here early next week and we are both curious to see if any changes will improve the play balance.

We both did have a good time though and plan on playing it again next week.
