Amen to that, I'd love to get my hands on one too. The example copy they were showing at Gencon looked great.

Plus, the sooner I get it, the sooner I'll be done painting the new figs

Smeagol looks good. I really like the way his torn nature is represented and may act as a force both for and/or against the FSP.

Will we see the abilities of Elrond given in detail in episode 8?

Luck in games, in measured doses, is the catalyst which enables shocking game-changers that you'll remember and talk about forever.

Have Smeagol still enter play the usual, thematic way, but have ways to control the composition of the Hunt Pool? BRILLIANT!

This game's in such good hands. Every rule is how I'd do it (but didn't think of), adding interesting decisions and what-if scenarios while still preserving thematic integrity.

We won't go in much more details in the Designer Diaries - we've still a couple to end the series, then we'll post the rules which will give you all the details you may still want to know!
The Expansion should be in stores around the end of October, it's shipping from the factory next week. So the wait should not be TOO long (at least, shorter than the wait for the first Hobbit movie!).

It seems to me at first glance that Smeagol, the tamed wretch adds a bit of help to the free peoples, as the appearance of a Smeagol tile mainly favors the FP (though it can turn against them, wisely using Smeagol should just provide benefits).

Having said that, Im trusting you Roberto completely to have tested this extensively and that the balance is preserved in the game: Wotr is the most beautiful piece of design. The game has too many good things to mention, but the final touch that makes it a masterpiece of gaming is the delicate equilibrium in such assimetric game.

Eager to include the Lords of Middle Earth in the struggle for the Ring!

We're working on it, but we can't announce anything definite yet. We have to juggle quantities, quality and price to see if we can create what people expects to buy, at the price people expects to pay, without taking too long! Not easy

Pins and needles! At first I thought you'd inadvertently left out Elrond's card abilities, but it seems that is being kept as a surprise?! I hope it's something powerful to offset the very powerful abilities of Gothmog and The Mouth.

Lets' see, there is a card for Isildur's bane, but Elrond ordered the reforging of the great sword, Narsil. Might Narsil be returning to cut some more digits off the hands of Sauron's minions . . .
