Hola:

We have our LotR game years ago, but we hace just notice this now, and we don't know if anybody has already talked about it:

In the Pippin character card, you can see the Rohan flag (horse) behind him. So, this picture must be Merry, according to the book (Pippin goes to Gondor with Gandalf, Merry fights with Eowyn in Rohan army).

In resume: Are the drawings in Merry and Pippin cards interchanged?
(We meant, Merry card drawing must be Pippin, and Pippin card drawing must be Merry)

Thanks for help and opinions!

I went back and looked, and I think you may be right. The Rohan flag is definitetly behind one of the hobbits, which would mostly likely mean he is Merry. It might just be a slip-up! It will be a nice piece of trivia to bring up the next time we play. Thanks for pointing it out!

We were wondering if anyone else noticed the same thing

The colours in the pictures are another clue: green (Rohan) must be Merry and blue/black (Gondor) Pippin.

The rulebook illustrations have the same misprint too

I just got this game as a gift, and I noticed this as well. My inner geek is disappointed.
