Hey I am curious about what spread the game has across the world. It seems like there are quite a few people who play it in many different countries, so I wanted to see who plays it where.

Please reply telling me:

1) Where you are playing the game (and what country you are from if it is different than where you are playing it).

2) How popular is it where you are at.

---------

I'll start. I'm playing the game in Thailand, because that's where I live. I am originally from America.

I think it's more of a minor game here. I think Magic and Yugioh are more popular with the Thai's, and the foreigners locally seem to be more into L5R... though there are some people who play the game here.

I'm playing in Latvia.

The LotR LCG community is small here. Really small. The board game community itself isn't all that large, though, so that's not a surprise.
As for exactly how small - I don't think there are more than 20 people in Latvia who own the game.

I live in the Portland, OR area in the U.S.A. I'm not Sure how big the community is up here for this game. Mostly MtG, 40k, and warmachine/ hordes. Honestly, that is to be expected being as Wizards of the coast and Privateer Press are a day trip away. There are a come Gawd stores in the area but I haven't seen anyone playing this there.

I couldn't really answer the 2) question cause I don't really know how big the community is in my country but I would assume it isn't that big.

I'm playing in Slovakia. Wile boardgames in general are not that popular here, LotR is quite popular among the boardgamers.

Spain here.

The game seems to not be popular, at least not in my small city (not even 200 thousand inhabitants). Well, games in general aren't very popular where I live.

Poland and I always play in Poland.

I always play LotR LCG with my gf who love this game and some friend who I taught rules.

I suggest that LotR LCG is a quite popular in my country. On polish publisher sit we have a fan's forum but the game have a lot of opponents who prefer other FFG's products too. I think that WH:I is most popular in Poland than other LCGs. Warhammer players have a very strong and activy scene.

American playing in England.

My gaming group loves it but we are a fairly isolated bunch. I see a lot of prolific users up here from the UK though so I will assume that it is popular in parts of the country.

American playing in Boston. I've never actually seen anyone else play it, but given how many packs the local store gets, there must be someone else buying them too.

1) Auckland, New Zealand

2) I've played face to face with 3 different players (all who own the game), and I've heard of at least a couple of others.

Since the game is so good as a solitaire experience, it's hard to gauge how many players are lurking out there. I had been playing the game avidly for roughly a year before I ever played a face to face game with another player.

Northland, New Zealand. Play very occasionally with two other players (own their own sets.) I look on with longing at the play scenes some people have around the various LCGs. Regular gaming sessions of this and Netrunner must be incredibly satisfying.

Netherlands here.

Wow, seeing the rating from Beorn, i finally found out why at our national gaming convention last week, almost all Adventure Packs at the stands were sold out

Btw, Beorn, I love your site. Thanks for putting in the effort.

Hi.
I'm from Croatia and play this game in Croatia
I know only few people that play it, so i play it mostly solo. The boardgaming comunity is not big here in Croatia. Magic is The Card game here and with younger players Pokemon and Yugioh. Android: Netrunner is gaining bigger. AGOT:LCG and LOTR:LCG are less popular here. Maybe 100 people play LOTR:LCG here (local store sold 50-100 copies of core set, I don't know the exact figure). As far as expansions, you can buy only core set and Mirkwood cycle AP's. Thankfully, BookDepository ships to Croatia and has almost all of our beloved game, so we can buy it and play it.
I don't know any player in Croatia who has more expansion of this game than me.
