The Old Board Gamers Blog is giving away a copy of the new Lord of the Rings Card Game. Now I haven’t played this and I have no idea how good it is but it’s currently one of the trendy games at BGG. I’m sure Barnes knows more about it.
The contest is easy enough as it involves retweeting stuff so head over there for the details.

It’s the new “Living Card Game” from Fantasy Flight Games. “Living Card Game” is their way of saying “we’re not going to sell you the rest of this incomplete game via random booster packs, instead we’ll do so by selling you a steady stream of $10 fixed booster packs”.
It may be OK, I don’t know. It’s definitely a CCG-style game. Probably comes with a needless board and some needless counters to justify sticking 200 or so cards in a big $40 box.
Definitely worth “free” though, no doubt.
Thanks for the mention.
I’ll be doing a review soon. It actually doesn’t come with a board Mike but it does have some counters and threat dials because you know FFG loves the whole dial mechanic now. It’s an LCG and it is co-operative. It only plays two out of the box and it only comes with 3 scenarios. However I haven’t beat the first one solo or with another player in about 10 tires so it’s a tad hard.
Things I like about it, plays solo, plays in 30-45 minutes has easier mechanics then their other LCG’s.
*Sigh*…well, that’s what happens when you develop, design, and test in a bubble…homogenity. At least it’s getting them away from multiple decks of cards to do what a D6 and a chart used to do. I guess that was from the 2010 FFG Design Manual.
Plus, maybe it means that they’ll at least keep the Dune Combat Wheels intact in whatever travesty of a remake they’re working on.
Looking forward to your review- no “competition” from me, I ain’t covering it!
I am actually pretty excited about this game but have not wanted to drop the cash on it…. crosses fingers
