Consider me excited.

Stoopid movie. I loved almost all the visuals, but Minas Tirith's 'prow' was just too even and silly looking. This one is similar, just doesn't look natural. Best Minas Tirith I think I've ever seen?



But yeah, can't wait for the expansion

So no more cycles? Just 'card box' expansions?

Turns out Esseb did touch the flag. Don't tell him I said so though.

Might that just be the deluxe expansion intro for the next cycle? It will be in a box like that for sure.

But finally some non-dwarf cards I hope

So this is not a saga expansion?

I'd be more interested in playing that story than the Hobbit.

Not quite that far.

I think this would be the time period when they were fighting about Osgiliath, Boromir and Faramir breaking the bridge and escape by swimming.

I would personally love to see Cair Andros or Ithilien as the main site of this cycle, time for Faramir, captain of Gondor to show his quality!

Agree with you. I also like other story in the middle earth then story from the books. Cose is already was so many games based on the story so much more interesting play those ffg cycle.

No, they also announced that there will be a cycle of packs following this deluxe expansion! It's not a Saga Expansion so I agree that it will be around the time of the attack on Osgiliath and the black riders sneaking across the river... aka the massing that we were warning Gondor about in "Massing at Osgiliath"

I am most excited about the potential Gondor synergies, something to boost up the already exciting Boromir hero. But I think we shall see the family Faramir (this time a hero) and Boromir (this time a hero again) and Denethor (maybe an ally this time) for the second time.

I hope to see Gondor and even Warrior keywords get some cards. Also more weapon and armor cards.

I'm not 100% sure what your definition of Saga Expansion is, so I'll "cut and paste" from the FFG description on Saga Expansion:
"Saga Expansions for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game allow players to participate directly in the thrilling narratives laid out by J.R.R. Tolkien in his beloved fiction. Their characters, enemies, and scenarios are drawn directly from his timeless novels. The scenarios in Saga Expansions can be played one at a time, or they can be linked to form a campaign that allows players to relive the greatest and most dramatic story arcs within Middle-earth!"
[Under the product section of The Lord of the Rings - The Card Game)

It doesn't have to be about, it not happening within the original time line of the game, given in the core rulebook? Or does it?
[Rules of Play, page 2, btw].

If they change the time line, to include more stories in the time between The Hobbit and The Fellowship and the Ring, it could very well be this cycle. I hope they do, although I suspect that you and others are right about when this cycle is set.

Looks like a cool expansion, just hope they include plenty of Rohan cards, including the one [hero] card I'm really waiting for; Eomer!

On the FFG presentation at Gen Con they said that the second Hobbit Saga Box will be released with the movie (=December 2012) and the Gondor Deluxe Expansion 1,5 months later (=January 2013). That means the cycle APs will be released starting in February 2013. But as FFG never managed to stick to their release schedule so far with LotR LCG there is a significant chance everything will be delayed...

This is a deluxe expansion (like Khazad-Dum), and there will be a cycle following it (like Dwarrowdelf), presumably with 6 APs. This expansion and cycle were announced at Gen-Con 2012 (on Aug. 17).

The heck with Rohan, they had a good chunk in Core and Shadows of Mirkwood, let them have their own cycle, this one is for Gondor. When we do get a Rohan cycle though I can't wait for Erkenbrand!
