I must check this forum every day for another scrap of information about this title! I've been checking in on Ares games and Sophisticated games too just to find some info on a release date now that we are entering the final quarter of the year, following the estimate of a final semester 2013 release date.

Anybody got anywhere that provides good live info on the games progression?

Maybe they have delayed it until next year, to coincide with the release of the final Hobbit film. It makes good marketing sense and it gives them another year to get the game right. Here's hoping...sauron

Who hopes for a delayed release date?! I'm all for a complete, well play tested game but I don't think there has been any word of it.

According to the 'list of new releases' for Spiel 2013, this will be available at the Ares stand.

Edit: and it will cost 75 euros, which is pretty steep IMHO.

When the novelty list requested, several months ago, we expected the game to be ready at this time, but in fact, it is not, unfortunately.

We expect the price to be the same as War of the Ring, as the level of the components is very similar.

Awww, man... What a bummer! But yeah, these things happen, I understand.

Sounds good! But since WotR is about €50, I think the €75 estimate for BotFA on the Spiel list is a bit steep.

SRP for War of the Ring in the USA is $ 90. When converted to EURO it becomes about E 70 + VAT. Of course, it is always possible to find games to buy at less than SRP.

Roberto,
Is this game different from the mini-games found in War of the Ring first edition?

This is a completely new game, using a similar system to the original battles games from the first edition expansions. These are not "mini-games" though, they are fully featured games that deal with the middle-earth battles at a greater level of detail then war of the ring.
