Reasons this game is obviously on it's last legs:

1. Consistent falling on the hotness.
2. No expansions announced from FFG.
3. Not released.
4. Only a brief mention in the in-flight report.
5. Paltry news coming out.
6. It seems like Lovecraft is going to rise from the grave and reclaim his IP.
7. Lord of the Rings just had an expansion announced.

I think this game is definitely done for. For sure.

As someone that reads all the posts in the Lord of the Rings forum, I found this very amusing. Thanks for the well-thought-out post.

LOL.

(I'm reminded of many years of Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game doomsaying, as well as the recent crop of BattleLore (Second Edition) quasi-obituaries.)

I think you're right, there has been zero releases in this system the past year. Come to think of it I can't remember any releases at all. That's pretty damning evidence that FFG has given up on supporting it.

Context for those who don't follow the The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game

Is this nearing its end?
Is there likely to be a 2nd edition released which would replace this?
LOTR LCG no longer in the Hotness list?
License will expire soon? (RUMOR)

Pretty sure its dying. I can't even remember the last time I played it. Weird considering the 9 rating.

What's sad, is that this is just a drop in the ocean of threads. I ran through the LotR forums searching "dying" and "ending" and found around 10 threads from the first page of those searches alone.

I wouldn't worry. Remember: "That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even death may die."

Well there hasn't been an expansion announced yet so I think FFG is dropping it

I just checked FFG's website this morning. It's still at the printers. Sigh.

Then the long boat trip. Then shipping. Then...

If only folks would do that before posting a new one...

The game is dying ?

I think not.

Arkham Horror : the card game is here to stay.

Very soon this game will devour you.

You forgot:

"Middle Earth enterprises will drop the license."

"Museum of History is killing this game."

"Core set isn't in reprint listings."

"Too many original characters."

Not sure if it's dying but "I've played it one time while learning the rules and found something that's DEFINITELY BROKEN".

Too true. Or...

I have a vague understand of the rules but I really feel like the chaos bag should add rather than subtract.

I also have a list of thirty other variants that I think should really be in the base game.

You had to play the game to see that it was broken? Damn you're slow, just reading the rulebook makes it obvious to anyone with half a brain that this socalled "game" is Broken!!!1!1!

As a Star Wars LCG fan, I must say this post is hilarious.

Pffft... you had to read the rules?!?

I looked at a photo of the rulebook and clearly saw every flaw the game has, and there are many.

Did I say read the rulebook? That was a typo, I of course meant read the URL for the rulebook PDF.

I think FFG has "invited" this sort of discourse by using the "Living Card Game" label. There's always a chance that a "Living" game could end up "Dead." You never know. It could get hit by a car while crossing the street, catch a mosquito-borne disease, choke on its supper, whatever.
