Look at this as the 2nd Edition. If i decide to get this i will get it before 2005 which means i wont be able to get the 3rd Edition.

2 player - includes diceless combat. Build decks like a CCG but play is pretty unique (unless you've played DiskWars anyway)

If you read the theme, you'll note this is absolutely a combat game. When you control an island, it's like a shockwave destroys anything else that's connected to it. Pretty brutal - cross between combat and Euro style.

LOTR: The Confrontation is a wargame with a unique dynamic. Read up on it, it's a lot of fun with a feel like I think you're looking for.

For a medium weight "war"game (its not *solely* a wargame, it depends on what victory condition you aim for) in the 2-4 player range (and this game scales really well) with a great ratio of fun to strategy/tactics (that criteria is a geeklist in itself ) I don't think this game can currently be beaten. I've played it 10 times now and enjoying it *more* with every play. I'm not a LotR fanboy (even though I'm highly recommended 2 LotR games ), its just this game is really fun. There are lots of things in this game I like, but what I love is that every single game seems to be close because of the victory condition setup. In most of my games the Fellowship is poised to destroy the ring in Mount Doom, while Shadow is a few corruption points away from a ring victory himself, while also being ready to take his last settlement for a military victory. *Every* game I've played swells to a climactic dramatic finish. Now I won't lie. A game is usually ultimately decided by the roll of the dice at a critical battle or the draw of a hunt tile while trying to dunk the ring, but I believe you have so much control before these events that I really don't mind. For battles you have the control of your nations and manoeuvring of your armies (which ones you bring to war, where do you muster, do you march a reserve force a long way to assist), and then you have the card play (which is a MAJOR part of this game, do you use your cards for their major effect or save them for their combat effect to really swing the battle your way. Because you have limited dice to play cards too you also have to decide whether to go for army/mustering ones or play the special tiles into the hunt pool). Once you know what you're doing, this game plays in 2-3 hours (not 4-5 marathons than people are complaining about). For your criteria of 2-more players I'd recommend this the most if you want a game with some length. Also if you can try to play with the guys in the picture I would recommend it because they look like lots of fun .

It is time to get some new blood in these "which game to get" lists. This is actually a pretty fun game of investment and finance. And the fact that you can pick it up on eBay for $2 (I did) is only an added bonus.
