Simplified play:

Instead of doing the printed set up, arrange matters so that the shadow has 8 victory points and one turn from completing the siege ona final stronghold; then place the fellowship a single step away from Mount Doom with ten corruption. then draw a hunt tile as though the Fellowship is entering the final space. If they survive, they win. If not, assume Shadow finishes conquering the stronghold.

Set Collection:
The Objective of all base scenarios should be amended.
"The winner of the game is the first to fill their hand with cards that all depict the same flank." Bonus kudos are awarded if every card is an assault.

Revised "Getting Started" Rules:

Shuffle the small deck of Carrot cards. Have every player select a number between 1 and 8 (or 12, 16, or 20, depending on the expansions you own). Reveal the bottom card of the small deck of Carrot cards. The player whose chosen number is closest to the revealed card is the winner. Go buy another expansion for this game.

Optional Shorter rules for 4 players: Roll 1d6. On 1-4, the appropriate player wins. On a 5, it's a tie. On a 6, everyone gives up before the end and no one wins.

Replace:

If the points for a symbol reach 18 on the score board, no further points are accumulated for that symbol. The player calls "INGENIOUS!" and must play a bonus turn.

with:

If the points for a symbol reach 18 on the score board, no further points are accumulated for that symbol. The player's opponents must now, in clockwise order, shout "INGENIOUS!!!" at the player. The player gets to disqualify any opponent(s) who did not shout loud enough or did not shout toward the player*. The player must now play a bonus turn.

*This is determined solely by the player.
