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.

No, I was not playing solo; but yes, we tend to play it in a cooperative way. So perhaps this may be the problem.
Thanks!

Your right, If you buy no dice you will win the game but no one gets an edge over anyone else. The scoring will stay low and the fun is out of the game. And you will never have the fun of watching the bad guy roll 11 dice and the group working to stop all that evil coming your way.

The updated rules include a pure co-op variant.
