Im getting them for christmas and i was not sure if they actually are any good. I only play board games with my 10 year old brother and occansionally when my friend/s come over. (2-3 players) The shop was really overpriced and i was going to get dread fleet but it was 200 dollars! Also axis and allies but i have played risk and not sure i would like it, settlers of catan but that is a 3 player game or twilight imperium but that was 3 player as well, i chose LOTR the card game and pandemic was it the right decision?

You do realize that instead of asking whether a game is good or not, there are literally thousands of threads related to each game, as well as After Action Reports (Replays) that go into quite a bit of detail.

The rules for both games are also online, so an informed decision should be able to be made in 95% of cases.

Anyway....I own both and yes they are good. COMPLETELY DIFFERENT so comparing them is impossible.

You really picked to good games. You might find out that both games are cooperative games, so no fight against each other. LotR has is more heavy than pandemic, but not as heavy as TI3. So enjoy playing Pandemic first and go over to LoTR and you and friends will have much fun.

We enjoy the two games very much.

Happy holidays.

Search for them and read the reviews, they will be helpful for you to decide.

I've played Pandemic probably 70 times by now. I eagerly traded LotR LCG after three plays. My two cents.

Played pandemic as a 2 and 3 player so far and really enjoyed it both ways.

Not played LOTR card game but would be interested to hear how it plays.

LOTR is a very good game, but the learning curve is too much for most people.
Pandemic is easy to learn and challenging to play, Challenging in a good way!
