Hello - last year I bought a used copy of this game before the latest reissue came out. The copy I received was in perfect shape but I've just discovered that it is missing about half of the cardboard counters (not the unique ones). Everything else is accounted for (all the cards, all the plastic figures). Do you think the game is still playable, substituting generic game tokens for the missing ones? Or should I plunk down sixty dollars for a new copy? Thanks!

First of all are you sure that you are missing half?

Second I never use any cardboard tokens except for maybe the territory control markers.

Third it looks cooler to me to have piles of armies leaking out of the edges of the attacking territory. (Creates a feeling of impending doom for the FPsauron)

I assume you mean some of the army markers or whatever?

I have never once used those. Unless you have a terrible memory and can't remember what you were doing, it's pretty easy to remember where an army is, even if it's past some boundaries.

100% playable.

If it is the round Army replacement counters, I echo the previous comments. Instead of those we simply transferred the oversize army onto a discarded Event card (face down) which sat in the sea sometimes, or an unused area of the board. Then we put a different colored die in the relevant space on the board, topped by the commander of that army (for the Shadow, a minion or Nazgul), if any.
