Anyone know when this will release? It was somewhat slated for November of last year, but so far I have not been able to find anything else out =(

In the Ares Games Upcoming Products section of their web site, WoME is not listed for January or February.

http://www.aresgames.eu/upcoming-products

Let us hope that this is not a complete list or is subject to frequent change; otherwise, we all are in for a longer wait than we thought...

I really am sad that the release has been pushing up. Late last summer there were rumors it would be fall/early winter and now with no word yet I'm worried it won't come by spring.

Granted, I have the AE coming in spring so it would be good timing for that.

There have been consistent delays with Wings of Glory and Sails of Glory releases. Those of us engaged in those games have learned not to think too much about upcoming releases until we have them in our hands. Ares produces excellent products, but the release of those products are on the company's timetable. You will keep your sanity and a measure of pleased-with-product if you put upcoming releases on your radar and then move on, practically forgetting about them until they're released. I'm not excusing Ares, but that is just the way it is; as I teach my students, the best indicator of future behavior is past behavior.

If you wonder about my attitude towards Ares, I am a fan. I am an administrator on two websites dedicated to Wings and Sails of Glory, run the Sails of Glory games at Origins, have volunteered at the Ares booth at Origins, own most of their games, and have participated in Ares' Kickstarters. I simply ignore projected release dates.

The Battle of Five Armies was delayed, as was War of the Ring: Lords of Middle-earth before that, so I'm not surprised that War of the Ring: Warriors of Middle-earth is also not out by the original estimated release date. I'm not complaining though, each of their entries to the WotR line has been remarkably polished, with little need for errata, and no print wide component errors.

I'm glad. 2015 was brutal on my wallet. I need a break from all these blockbuster titles.

Besides, I can never bring myself to add anything in to WotR anyway. It's just too good as is. I haven't even cracked LoME, even after having it more than a year.

Open LoME you won't regret it, never played without it since. Never bothered with the alternative game start though.

Nothing substantive to add. Just wanted to add a third Justin to this thread.

So somebody convince me to buy War of the Ring already! Was there a particular gameplay video or review that convinced you?

Indeed. WOTR has long been my favorite game, but after I saw this guy's review a while back it just elevated it even higher. I don't know how anyone could see this and not rush out to buy a copy.

Anyone know where to find the dice he "upgraded" to for the combat dice?

EDIT: Nevermind. Just realized this information was in the main WotR page in the game info section.

Here's how:
Guy watches video at the recommendation of the helpful BGG community, guy asks wife if she'd be willing to learn and play it, wife asks if game will be complex, guy doesn't immediately lie, wife says no way.

So I have to delay the purchase until I find a new wife.

Justin My wife has played me 3 times the only 3 times I've played War Of The Ring and She won every time. I was close the last time on the last step of Mordor. She has never read the rules we played the first time and messed up on somethings and we played the next 2 time and she was amazing.

Also i just went and bought it and didnt tell her about it till she was at the GYM and i setup the game, and she came home and was like when did you get this. BIG SMILE
