I got a starter box from Fellowship of the Ring (FOTR) - meaning alot of gandalf and aragorn starters. If I buy a booster box from FOTR, will this be a fun/good game, or do I need more cards from expansions in this block also?

My favorite time to play this game was during the first year. I think I had a deck for every culture in the game, and sometimes more than one. But to be honest, I think the first block is fleshed out better by adding in the expansions as well.

But yeah, definitely pick up a booster box of FotR and try it out. The game was awesome in the first year. Just agree ahead of time that you're not going to be a dick and abuse Elrond.

Yes it's fun with just the first set. In fact, using just the first set (and perhaps the first few expansions) keeps the game more enjoyable by avoiding the power creep and the increasingly fiddly and complex rules.

I own from all 19 sets. I love to play with the first three sets the most. It is generally called Fellowship Block. You can get a box of Mines of Moria for cheap. It has some good cards. Enjoy, it is a fantastic game!
