I'm just curious if anyone knows how many total copies of this game and its various expansions were actually made?

How many 1st edition?
How many 2nd edition?
How many BotTA?
How many LoME
How many WoME?

I have a friend who arrived late to the party and is now trying to acquire the second edition and its two expansions, and he's had a tough time finding the base game and the first expansion. It's out of stock everywhere, so he's looking at paying way above the original sale price.

"The War of the Ring Second Edition base game and its first expansion, Lords of Middle-earth are presently sold out, but they are now being reprinted and will be available again in the second half of November."

Tell him to hold fire and be patient.

Warriors of Middle-earth expansion is starting to hit the stores now (purchased mine today from my OLGS).

According to Ares Games, the base game and Lords of Middle-earth have undergone a reprint and should (hopefully) be in the shops November/December time.

No need to pay those inflated prices listed by the e-bay sharks.

An official reply from Ares Games. I'd emailed them directly, with
the response coming in a few days ago ... Walts

What about the original question? Any estimates on how many copies are in circulation?

I remember seeing this in another thread. Roberto from Ares was estimating the numbers in print. I don't know exactly when it was, but if you search the history, you may find it.
