Hello everyone,

I've been interested in War of the Ring 2E for some time, and recently took the plunge and purchased a copy. Unfortunately, there was some pretty significant damage to the box. Luckily, the great folks at CSI are shipping me a replacement, and since I live overseas, they do not need me to send the damaged item back.

So my question is this: is there anything in this game which would make having two copies beneficial?

Thanks.

The only thing I can think of is the battle (standard d6) dice. The game only comes with 5 white dice. I replaced those with two sets, one red and one blue.

Everything else has exactly as many as you will need, as far as I can recall. You don't want more minis or hunt tiles because that will throw off the balance. Especially because the Free Peoples forces are limited and once they are gone, they are gone. And you will never roll more of the character dice than they have given you.

Edit: I suppose you could use the two Gandalf and Aragorn figures to distinguish between Gandalf the Grey/Gandalf the White and Strider/Aragorn by painting them differently or otherwise marking them. But if you get the first expansion it has different figures for the upgraded versions.

Yeah, not much to gain from a second copy. Now you have two sets of battle dice that you can throw away and replace!

Have one be a painting copy. Doesn't matter if you're bad or not at painting, you have a spare.

And you can continue play during painting!
