Results after 30 expansion games are:

FPM 2 7%
FPR 14 47%
SM 14 47%
SR 0 0%

The lack of FPM shows is the flip-side of the difficulty of getting a corruption victory. Under the base game, DEW North made a Ring victory difficult, so the Free People often had to cut and run and try for a military victory - which was always a long shot anyway.

Under the expansion there is less danger of a corruption loss (Smeagol; Galadriel swatting away Eye tiles; Gandalf being able to stay with the Fellowship since his die can be taken by Galadriel and not having to go on a one or two corruption tile draw). The Free People can simply go for a ring victory - and achieve it nearly half the time.

That doesn't add up to anywhere close to 100%...

Unless most of the games end with a two-year-old, running across the board wrecking everything.
"Game over... I guess we both lose..."

Per cents

I read it the same way at first, but the space isn't a point. It's the raw numbers followed by the percentage, so 7%, 47%, 47%, and 0%.
