I don't think the base game "needs" anything. Even experienced players do not always play with the expansion.

What it does add is more choices. I would definitely play the base game several times before considering the expansion. It's still a must buy though

If you love Battle of five armies I think you will also love this.

Excellent point. The game is balanced and satisfying on it's own. I will, however, HAVE to buy the expansion when available. Variety is a good thing!

I have the expansion and enjoy it. Biggest game changer is the FP being able to activate their nations much faster if you split off the Fellowship before the game starts. Makes it harder on Shadow armies taking MT easily (or DEW line, etc.) Really enjoy the extra die and characters, though.
