I've got a maybe stupid question: does anyone out there find this game a bit too easy?
I mean, if you never buy units, then Sauron gets lesser dice, and you will probably win easily - at least this is what happened to us in the first two games.
We liked the game, make no mistake, but it's a bit "easy", so I was wondering if anyone experimented the same feeling.
When you say "this is what happened to us" I assume you were not playing solo. The only thing I would address is that you don't win as a team. A single player wins. It is a competitive game, not a purely co-op one. The team defeating Sauron is just the prerequisite that allows a victor. If players weren't buying more powerful dice, then it sounds like they weren't playing to win.
