As much as I enjoy previews, they only make me want to see the rules sooner...

That is, 3 players become "heroes". Plus one Sauron player (i.e. me) sauron


I feel like those previews let out less and less info.
Time to bring out the rules!!!

Ugh, I hope not. I wouldn't buy the game.

I know it is irrational. I just don't like the character. I couldn't get past his part in the mmrgp due to how much I dislike the character.

Otherwise-- the previews are promising. I think this is a game I could get my group to play.

God, I hope not. Let that useless hippie hang out in some other game.


But wouldn't it be cool if Tom Bombadil could shoot flowers at the minions of Sauron? Imagine the screaming! Imagine the agony!

Like him or not, he was extremely powerful. He kicked the barrow wight's butt, not with flowers, but with a song.

Good question. I would imagine that there would be some kind of presence of good old Tom B, especially since they mention the Barrow Wights (would think that Tom B might make a good counter to that). Besides, there's not that much interesting stuff that happened in that part of Middle Earth (that I recall, at least...), so Tom B would certainly help to add some value/play to that area.

Yeah, that's for sure... not much substantive material in the latest preview. Was interesting to see some of the "plot" cards mentioned, though. Also, looks like the fifth minion could be a group of Nazgul (other than the Witch King), based off of the miniature that they show.

Also will be interesting to see how the hunt for Gollum will play out. Wonder if it will be just another plot card, or something more significant (if it directly relates to the "Ring Search" track for Sauron victory).
