It could be interesting. I guess I should of explained my thoughts on it better. I'll try any RPG once, with an open mind. I just don't like the whole needing an electronic to play a miniature based game. It very well could be one of the best RPG's that have come out. Maybe I shouldn't judge the book by its cover.

Sinned, I'm sure this is probably to early to ask but is it any good? How do the figures look? I saw a guy on YouTube paint the game set and they looked decent.

Haven't played it yet, but a friend of mine who has (and doesn't praise things easily) is enthusiastic.

The minis look good and so do the components.
This is my 3rd FFG game (I have Imperial Assault and all of its expansions (both boxes and packs) and a good collection of ships of their X-Wing game) and I must say they deliver quality stuff.

My main reason to finally get this (I initially wanted to get it on the release date) is that I'm a pretty big Tolkien fan (Star Wars is #1, Tolkien comes second and this isn't my first LOTR game).

Played it several times now and I'm hooked. What a fantastic game this is. Without a doubt one of the 3 best boardgames I've ever played. (I'd say Imperial Assault and Star Trek Catan are the other 2)
